While the Bluegrass Boys roster is filled with former Kentucky basketball players, Team KBC is loaded with other high-level talent around the area.
In fact, they put together an anti-UK roster in a sense, highlighted by Chris Lofton (Tennessee), Anthony Hickey (LSU), Nick Mayo (EKU), and AJ Slaughter (WKU).
In their round one game this evening, KBC took down the Peoria All-Stars by a final score of 94-82.
Former Hilltopper guard AJ Slaughter torched the nets, dropping 34 points on 11-18 shooting and 6-10 from three. He also added six rebounds, three assists, and one steal.
Chris Lofton, a Maysville, KY native, finished second on the team with 18 points on 6-14 shooting and 4-11 from three. The former Volunteer also managed four rebounds, four assists, and two steals.
Nick Mayo, who recently signed on to play professionally in Japan after an impressive Summer League with the Miami Heat, scored 17 points on 7-13 shooting. The former EKU Colonel also grabbed three rebounds and two steals in the victory.
Team KBC will take on DeMarcus Cousins’ Loyalty is Love squad tomorrow afternoon in the Lexington regional quarterfinals.
