Re: Kentucky 2013-14

I also think Ballard will be very very good and they were not included in previous lists. Jack Zhang is a senior and averaged 59.02 at HSNCT Even scarier, I believe Jack Zhang might only be a junior next year (he was a freshman all-star from Kentucky last year along with Olivia Kiser I believe).

I haven't seen Trimble County mentioned yet. They only appeared at our Spring tournament (outside of KAAC), but James Line did really well for them. I don't know if he's coming back, but since they nearly made the top bracket in a really tough tournament, they have a real shot at doing well this se...

Obviously I'm not Nick so I can't speak with absolute certainty, but I believe he was looking at an easierish housewrite similar to the MSU/UD housewrite mirrored last fall.
