  1. Donald Harvey is from my home county, Owsley. I knew his parents, who were good people.
  2. Cheese and crackers. As a matter of fact, I love cheese on just about anything. But it has to be real cheese, not those packs of cheese you can buy at the grocery that are individually wrapped.
  3. 85 miles from Booneville to Good Samaritan Hospital in Lexington.
  4. Yes, I know that now. I made a couple of calls and finally got an answer. They had already committed to the Pikeville tournament.
  5. Just learned that Ashland is committed to the Pikeville Invitational during the KOB. Conflict of schedule.
  6. Sophomore point guard Colin Porter is A D-1 prospect, as is junior Cole Villers. They’ve also added a 6’9 transfer from West Virginia but I don’t know many details about him. And they were undefeated last season at 33-0 and won their region. That should mean something as far as an invite. However, its also possible that they might have been invited and was already committed to another event.
  7. I wonder if Ashland was invited? They have most of their team back from an undefeated season.
  8. Same thoughts here! Talent right in the neighborhood of UK’s campus and they go out of state.
  9. I understand what you’re saying. What I was wondering about was whether if it’s a court procedure placing the students at OBI. I believe they quite often have those situations with some of their students. Would that make a difference in getting a waiver to play?
  10. I’m not 100% on the issue but I’m fairly certain that OBI has numerous kids playing in various sports every year who stay in the dorms and their parents do not live in Clay County or the Oneida area. They have a lot of foreign students. We played their golf team one year and they had students on their team from Mongolia, Vietnam and China. Now, I’m not sure about students who have played a sport at their previous school but I’m sure if it’s a court endorsed transfer that those students would get a waiver to play sports at OBI. I know in the past they’ve had some darn good basketball players that had played at other schools and transferred to OBI to stay on campus and were ruled eligible to play, and no parents moved to Oneida with them.
  11. Cordia is not the same type of school as Oneida Baptist. Cordia is part of the Knott County school district. OBI is a private religious based school and has dorms on their campus. I think over half of their students, probably more, are form outside Clay County. Many are international students.
  12. OBI is a difficult place to build team continuity in their programs because they never know from one year to the next who will be on campus playing sports for the school. They are a parochial school with dorms and many of their teams have a different look every year. I know one thing though, if the school wanted to they could build a basketball powerhouse. The way their school is set up with on campus dorms and all they could be a mini version of Oak Hill Academy if they so chose, and had a coach with free reign to ‘entice‘ skilled players to come there. And I believe it would all be within KSHAA rules and regulations.
