Kentucky High School Region 2 Basketball Preview

1.University Heights

The return of four players that averaged double figures, including 5’9 point guard KJ Crump, the Blazers are Echelon Recruits’ favorite in the 2nd Region. William Bryan, Dj Quarles, and Amani McGee averaged in double figures in the 2019-2020 season to add to a balanced attack for the Blazers. 6’5 Junior Forward/Center Namari Hall is poised for a breakout year as the low post presence for UHA.

2. Madisonville North Hopkins

After losing their head coach and five seniors that included two division 1 basketball athletes, one opinion would be that the Maroons would be in rebuilding mode this season. However, this is not the case for the Maroons; they pick up a veteran coach in Jon Newton, a pair of top players in 6’0 Kale Gaither and 6’8 Bryton Walker, and return junior guard Danye Fraizer, who is primed for a breakout season.

3. Christian County

Coach Toby Miles inherits a talented Christian County squad from coach Stovall. Led by a pair of juniors in guard Marquavion Chambers and 6’5 post-Olajuan White, the colonels will be the dark horse of the 2nd Region.

4.Lyon County

High scoring freshman guard Travis Perry returns for the Lyons. The 6’1 guard averaged 26 points per game and is considered one of Kentucky’s best scorers as a freshman. He will lead the charge for the Lions. Perry’s running mate will be Jackson Shoulders, who averaged 16 ppg and 11 rebounds per game. Lyon County will be tasked to compete with the upper echelon of 2nd region teams this year.

5. Hopkinsville

Hopkinsville returns 6’3 guard Alijah Watts. Alijah is considered one of the most versatile players in the state. If he has an excellent full season for the Tigers, Hopkinsville will be a team to watch out for this year.

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to
