  1. RIP Chamoda Kennedy-Palmore: University of Cincinnati (UC) football player killed in motorcycle crash - Story
  2. Great that she has actual offers. I never really heard of her but I am kinda out of the loop and will pay more attention now. Love to hear Kentucky girls getting offers from big time programs!!
  3. Good luck to the new coach!! I hope someone starts putting extra time in with South middle school again since this is the primary feeder into the high school! Go Dragons!
  4. That's great! Very few players get that many offers before they begin their sophomore year. She must be an elite player. I'm always pulling for Kentucky players but hope you are not getting "offers" confused with "recruiting". Hope you are correct, but regardless she has accomplished a lot for an incoming sophomore!
  5. From Rick Bolus blog: NATIONAL BOYS AAU TOURNAMENT WRITTEN BY RICK BOLUS | 26 JULY 2014 Yesterday I spent the day at the National Boys AAU Tournament held in Louisville, KY.

  15. Per the Courier Journal she chose Dayton over North Carolina-Wilmington, Mississippi and Bellarmine. Congrats! Ballard's Javonna Layfield commits to Dayton
  16. I didn't know Morris wasn't in the core six. That's pretty sad. I have never seen her play but i would think that a UK commit and the only junior to make the courier journal first team all-state would be a no brainer for the core six. From what I remember several years ago, the junior all-star team is picked by the coach of the junior team. If that is still the case, I think the all-stars need to revamp and select this team from a committee of coaches. When I saw the original try-out list my first thought was, "In all of Louisville, 2 juniors were invited, seriously?" That's crazy to me.

  18. Do you think that the late June date for the All-star game has anything to do with the participation? With D-1 basketball players having to attend all sessions of summer school there is a conflict for lots of athletes. I was discussing this with a coach from my daughter's school, she said the game was conflicting with summer school. Just a thought.
  19. Are the other Miss basketball candidates hurt? I know Ruffin is hurt but what about Rankin and Kiernan? I would think that a Miss Bball candidate would make the team.

  21. Player of the Year: Ivy Brown Ivy Brown The 6-foot-2 senior, named Miss Basketball earlier this month, is ranked 73rd nationally in the 2014 class by ESPN's HoopsGurlz.

A repeat first-team selection, Brown will play for Western Kentucky University next season. Erin Boley Already on the recruiting radar of nearly ever major college program, the 6-1 sophomore led Elizabethtown to a state runner-up finish and a 32-5 record. She is ranked 19th nationally in the 2016 class by ESPN's HoopsGurlz. Boley averaged 20.5 points while shooting 55 percent from the field, including 43.3 percent from three-point range. She hit 84.8 percent of her free throws and averaged 9.2 rebounds a game. Makenzie Cann Also a repeat first-team selection, the 5-11 senior led Anderson County to a second straight State Tournament appearance and a 28-5 record.

Cann shot 43.6 percent from the field, including 36.1 percent from three-point range, and was 77.4 percent at the free-throw line. Eriel McKee Cann's teammate on a 28-5 State tourney team, the 5-10 senior will play college ball for Morehead State University. A second-team pick as a junior, McKee stepped up this season to scored 19.4 points a game on 53.6 percent shooting accuracy. She also averaged 8.6 rebounds a game. Like Cann, she was a Miss Basketball finalist. DaiJia Ruffin A 5-9 senior who has committed to Tennessee Martin, Ruffin helped Sacred Heart to a 7th Region championship and an appearance in the Sweet Sixteen, finishing with a 27-8 record. Ruffin averaged 18 points a game while shooting 57.5 percent from the field. She added 9.5 rebounds a game and was a Miss Basketball finalist. Maci Morris A 5-10 junior who is verbally committed to the University of Kentucky, Morris helped Bell County to a 25-5 record and a spot in the 13th Region semifinals.

Danielle Lawrence A 5-10 senior, Lawrence was named MVP of the Sweet Sixteen, helping Butler to a 32-3 record and a state championship. Signed to play for IUPUI, she averaged 14.9 points and 5.2 rebounds. Lawrence shot 48.6 percent from the field, 81.8 percent at the free-throw line. Alexis Robinson The Ashland Blazer junior, who has verbally committed to Colorado, was a big reason why the Kittens went 26-9 and reached the Sweet Sixteen for a third consecutive season. Robinson averaged 16.5 points and 6.4 rebounds. She shot 39.8 percent from the field, 76.9 percent at the free-throw line. Javonna Layfield The 5-10 senior led Ballard to a 24-5 season, averaging 17.3 points and 9.8 rebounds. She shot 55.8 percent from the floor, 36.7 percent from three-point range, and 72.5 percent at the free-throw line. She joins a cousin, Danielle Lawrence, on the first team. She caps a comeback from a torn meniscus as a sophomore and an ACL injury as a junior. She is still looking at colleges, including Dayton, Ole Miss and North Carolina-Wilmington.
