It’s time to answer the age-old KSR question, “Is there any news on Patterson or Lucas???” Yes, my friends. Yes, there is. Kind of.
John Lucas, father of KSR legend Jai Lucas, is hosting his Second Annual John Lucas Midwest Invitational in Louisville on October 8th and 9th. The camp will feature some of the nation’s best players from the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 classes. Media and scouting services from all over the country will be attending this invitation-only event, so it is great exposure for all of the participants.
So why is Scout.com’s Evan Daniels so upset, you ask?
Because the KHSAA banned the homegrown Kentucky boys from attending the camp. Seven players from across the state were invited to Lucas’s elite event but the KHSAA says they are not allowed to participate because of a rule saying high school players can’t play in fall exposure events.
It’s robbing those seven in-state kids of invaluable exposure and Evan Daniels isn’t happy about it.
They’re baller blockin’.
