We had a great night last night at Scott High School for the Barnstorming Tour. A great crowd greeted us in Northern Kentucky and it was quite a show, with the UK guys winning relatively easily in the end. Ramel went for 51 points and the other guys showcased their skills, including Woo, who had 24 in the cause. A couple of highlights:
— Ickey Woods was GREAT throughout the game. He taught Woo to do the Ickey Shuffle, scored four points and generally talked trash all night. Former Cat Doug Pelphrey got Ickey, David Fulcher and others to participate and we thank him a great deal.
— Highlight of the night was when a kid came out for the Woo challenge and I asked him why he thought he could beat Woo. He answered, “cause my Dad says he stinks.” The crowd went nuts, I called his Dad out from the stands and made him play Woo….Woo proceeded to block his shot to the other end of the court. Good stuff.
Tonight we are at Knox Central High School in Barbourville. Hope you will stop by if you are around the area. As you watch Derby stuff today, here are some pictures taken by Matt Billips at the game against the Marshall guys in Ashland. Until later….
