From Courier-Journal recruiting guru Jody Demling’s blog, a couple of quick updates on some future and potential future Wildcats. Here are the highlights:
—Jon Hood continues to light it up, even if his team isn’t having great success. He scored 25 of his team’s 51 points in a one-point win over Hopkinsville Tuesday night. Hood and the Maroons travel to play the proud alma mater of Scotty Hopson, University Heights, tonight at 7:30. Despite Hood’s stellar play so far, his team has still managed just five wins in 12 games this season.
—Dakotah Euton scored 18 points and added 8 rebounds in a win for Scott County over Henry Clay. Standout point guard Ge-Lawn Guyn added 16 points. Scott County will host defending state champions, the fighting Darius Millers of Mason County, tomorrow night at 7:30.
—Vee Sanford scored 17 points in only 17 minutes as his Lexington Catholic Knights knocked off Casey County Tuesday night.
–Finally, as Matt mentioned earlier this week, KC Ross-Miller will be playing in Lexington this weekend in the Dunkin Donuts Shootout hosted by LexCath. Miller’s God’s Academy will play at 8 p.m. Saturday against Ohio’s Campbell Memorial. According to Demling, he is scheduled for another game Friday night but details on that are not clear yet, and if they’re not clear for Jody Demling, you can bet your ass they’re not clear for me. (**Update: Demling has just posted that Ross-Miler’s first game will be 4:30 pm Friday. It will be an exhibition against the St. Catharine’s College junior varsity team at LexCath.) Miller’s coach/father calls the game says it’s a big weekend, as it’s the first time KC has played in the Bluegrass. The tourney will be going all day starting at 2:00, and Lexington Catholic plays right before Miller’s squad, so get out early and check out some good high school basketball in addition to the future cat.
There you have it. Someone will be around shortly with…something…I promise.
