If you’re looking for the next High School basketball star from Kentucky, look no further than Kenny White from Madisonville-North Hopkins. In his short two-game stint at the Whitaker Bank KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16, he was easily the star of the weekend. Against Lincoln County, White went for 21 points in the victory along with eight rebounds and six blocks.

If you think that’s impressive, what the 6’7″ junior did against Warren Central was even better. In the first half ALONE, White nearly had a double-double with 19 points on eight of nine shooting and seven boards. He would ultimately finish with a 27 point-ten rebound double-double. He also hit two threes.

Here are some of his highlights from just the first half:

Currently, White only has offers from Tennesee-Martin, Kent State, and Evansville. But, I can assure you that will change soon. EKU head coach A.W. Hamilton was in the crowd to watch the junior’s performance, and if I were a betting man, I’d say White will get a call from Hamilton soon.

With another season to go, he will almost certainly get some calls from some Power five schools. Kenny White is definitely someone to keep an eye out for going forward.

Check out some more of White’s highlights here.

Here are some highlights from his first round game against Lincoln County:

    I’ll admit I had to google A.W. Hamilton to know who that is. It might be helpful to include that information in the post.

    Yeah I have no idea who AW Hamilton is either. Can he shoot the ball? What’s his height? It looked like all he did was dunk the ball against average high school players. This doesn’t necessarily make him a high level prospect. I hope he turns out to be great.

      Athletic 6’7″ and handles the ball like a point guard. He sprained his ankle in game one, finished that game, and played through the pain last night.
      Just a junior, he’s going to get a bunch of offers.

    No argument regarding White..However, the most interesting prospect might be the freshman sensation from Lincoln County, Jaxon Smith. Held his own against White and company. The kid is going to be a star. Truly a KY Mr Baseball canadate in the making.

      No kidding, I covered him in the region and at state. Kid can ball too, the future is looking good for high school basketball in the state.

    I was at the MNHHS vs Lincoln county game Thursday night and could not believe that kid from Lincoln is a FRESHMAN…he’s going to be a star.
