The Traditional Bank Holiday Classic has been one of the best tournaments in the state for longer than I can remember and this season's bracket is loaded once again. This year's edition won't start until Thursday at Bueter Gym and is full of talented teams from across the state.

Opening Round Match-Ups:

  • Things get underway with at 4 pm as JJ Traynor and Bardstown take on 9th region powerhouse Cooper. The Jaguars will look to shut down the Bardstown offense while Coach Brewer's team will be looking to get out and push the pace.
  • At 4:30 in Alumni Gym, Hancock County and Jaxson Gray take on Kyle Stivers and Franklin County. Hancock has their best team in some time while the Flyers have a lot of veteran talent.
  • 5:30 sees a match-up between Frederick Douglass and UHA. Sophomores Dashawn Jackson and KJ Crump are AAU teammates but will go against each other here.
  • Alumni Gym's 6 pm game pits Kelly Niece and Simon Kenton against Robertson County and freshman Justin Becker. Should be a high scoring affair.
  • Lexington Catholic opens up with Bellevue at 7 pm in the big gym. Tommy Ratterman and Ben Johnson should get up plenty of threes in that contest.
  • At 7:30 in Alumni gym, Bryan Station
