Congratulations to The Ville and Northern KY Wildcats for capturing their respective division championships. I have attempted to give a brief recap of this tournament and the statistics came from the game scoresheets. I apologize in advance for any misspelled names or errors in stats as I hurriedly transcribed the statistics from the scoresheets. This report is meant to be an overview of the tournament for entertainment purposes, and not an instrument for ascertaining individual records.
Thanks to the Kentucky Basketball Academy academy staff for putting on another quality event for these young athletes. A special note of appreciation to the coaches and parents who put in so much time and effort so that these players can showcase their talents.
Please feel free to send your comments and questions concerning the tournament, teams, or players to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
