While yesterday was a rough day for the current set of Kentucky Wildcats, future Cat Tyrese Maxey was competing for a spot in the Texas High School Basketball State Tournament, with a spot at State on the line. Unfortunately, Maxey’s South Garland squad fell to Klein Forest by the score of 64-53 in the Regional Finals.
Maxey’s high school basketball career has come to an end earlier than he had hoped, but it is clear he left it all on the floor every night for the Colonels and I’m sure he was distraught about ending before a shot at the State Title.
Gave it my all.

Last night, he finished with 25 of his team’s 53 points in a losing effort. Take a look at some of his highlights from this year’s playoffs below.
Had a chance to film @TyreseMaxey in his final two high school games during the 6A District II Playoffs. South Garland (@SGHS_Colonels) didn't advance to state but the Senior guard played his heart out. Kentucky (@KentuckyMBB) has a special player on the way. #TXHSBB #TXHSHoops pic.twitter.com/yA9vV0gsfm

While no one wants to overlook the most fun part of this Kentucky season, as Selection Sunday is a few weeks away, people have to be really excited about what Kentucky is going to be getting in Tyrese Maxey next year. Maxey is an absolute stud, and seeing him alongside whoever returns for UK will be exciting to watch.
