We’re quickly closing in on the start of the 2019-20 season and on of the premiere events of the preseason is the annual Fayette County Hoop-O-Rama. After spending multiple years at Dunbar, the games now move to Frederick Douglass. Here’s a look at the games on the schedule for Saturday.
Franklin County vs Lafayette (11:00)
Things tip off early with an intriguing match-up of solid big men. Franklin County’s Joe Meador Joe Meador 6'10" | PF Franklin County | 2020 State KY and Lafayette’s Ray Surratt go head to head. While the difference in the game itself will likely come down to the guard play, the two bigs are the best prospects in the opening game on Saturday.
Bryan Station vs Somerset (12:45)
Station is loaded with guards as Myles Morones Myles Morones 6'1" | CG Bryan Station | 2021 State KY and Jalen Lindsay are planning to get Station back to prominence in the 11th region. Somerset will be less than full strength due to their football team still playing. Without leading scorer Kade Grundy Kade Grundy 6'0" | SG Somerset | 2021 State KY , the Briar Jumpers may struggle to score on Saturday.
Frederick Douglass vs Lexington Catholic (2:30)
One of the best games of the day features the top Juniors in the city as DaShawn Jackson DaShawn Jackson 6'3" | SG Frederick Douglass | 2021 State KY of Douglass and Ben Johnson Ben Johnson 6'3" | CG Lexington Catholic | 2021 State KY of Lexington Catholic go head to head. Sophomore Jack Gohmann Jack Gohmann 6'3" | SG Lexington Catholic | 2022 State KY is going to have a bigger role for Catholic this year while Douglass Senior Bilal Chhadh provides a veteran post presence for the Broncos.
Christian Academy of Louisville vs Tates Creek (4:15)
CAL is led by Senior Ryan McDaniel and Junior Brayden Daniels. Daniels is the nephew of Ballard legend Allen Houston and has a sweet shooting stroke like his uncle. Tates Creek enters the season with more hype than in recent years. Senior Amari Taylor Amari Taylor 6'2" | PG Tates Creek | 2020 State KY will lead the Commodores and Freshman Sam Parrish is one to watch on Saturday.
Louisville Central vs Dunbar (6:00)
Central, like CAL, is a team I have already seen this month. Shane Bibby Shane Bibby 6'0" | PG Eastern | 2021 State KY is one of the most underrated Junior guards in the city of Louisville while Dunbar is going to be led by Super Sophomore Tim Hall Tim Hall 6'6" | PF Paul Laurence Dunbar | 2022 State KY who is among the short list of candidates to have a breakout season in the city of Lexington.
Lincoln County vs Henry Clay (7:45)
The main event features two Sweet 16 hopefuls. Lincoln County is led by Senior Riley Bodner Riley Bodner 6'9" | C Lincoln County | 2020 State KY in the post and Sophomore Jaxon Smith Jaxon Smith 6'2" | PG Lincoln County | 2022 State KY at the point while Henry Clay has State Championship aspirations behind Seniors Marques Warrick Marques Warrick 6'3" | SG Henry Clay | 2020 State #365 Nation KY and Marquis Mackey Marquis Mackey 6'2" | CG Henry Clay | 2020 State KY . Keep an eye out for freshman Tramane Alcorn Tramane Alcorn 6'0" | CG Lincoln County | 2023 State KY of Lincoln and Sophomore Kanye Henderson Kanye Henderson 6'2" | SG Henry Clay | 2022 State KY from Henry Clay. Both have big time potential.
