The 73rd Annual LIT Championship was Saturday, January 18th between the Fern Creek Tigers and the Ballard Bruins. Both of these teams are sitting on top of their respected regions and have a very good chance of making their way to Rupp Arena for the state tournament. This game was full of runs. Fern Creek would go down by double digits but fight their way back. They even took the lead after being down 13 points. Ballard's guards Jack Edelen and Lewis Richards came up big for them in the 2nd half as they combined for 19 of the team's 25 points in the 2nd half. Ballard walks away as the 2020 LIT Champions as they defeat Fern Creek, 57-51.
