In the NCAA Tournament, we still have a few of our locals standing.
Our beloved Kentucky Wildcats roster boasts one of our Mr. Basketballs — Dominique Hawkins, of Madison Central and two of our high school all-stars — Derek Willis from Bullitt East and Dillon Pulliam of Harrison County.
The Xavier Musketeers, who pulled of quite the upset last night against Arizona, host two of our former athletes — Mr. Basketball runner-up Quentin Goodin of Taylor County and Leighton Schrand from Holy Cross.
And Butler still stands in the tournament with Ballard’s Kelan Martin on their roster.
A lot to be proud of from our local kids… impressive to boast so much Division I talent from our state.
