A future Kentucky Wildcat is one win away from a National Championship.
Five-star small forward Keion Brooks and top-ranked La Lumiere will take on IMG Academy and future North Carolina Tar Hell Armando Bacon Jr. in the Geico National Championship today at 12:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
In the semifinals against Oak Hill Academy, Brooks made 9-of-16 shots (2-for-5 from three-point land) to score a team-high 20 points. He added six boards, two assists and only two turnovers in the one-point win. A few of his best moments from the win:

Through two games at the Geico Nationals, Brooks is averaging 19 points and 8 rebounds per game. He’s shooting 57% from the field and 42.9% from behind the three-point line.
Throughout the entire tournament, he’s had some support from the BBN in New York City. Blue always gets in.
