The Wildcat Memorial Day Showdown was an intense 2-1/2 days of high level AAU basketball. Teams from Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Indiana, Missouri, West Virginia and Florida battled it out in Lexington, Kentucky. The Blue Star WV 9th grade girls team was one of the most impressive teams that played. Players such as Aaliyah (#3), Kaliyah (#24), Shianna (#15) and Alex (#5) displayed a lot of skill, versatility and tenacity. They ran their offense with precision and they defended like there was no tomorrow. Their combination of speed, size and strength was a lot for some teams to overcome. After going 1 – 1 in pool play, they ran off 3 straight playoff victories over teams such as KY Crush, SMAC Future & Memphis Dream. Their championship game against the Indiana Jewels team was a tough one as they lost 41 – 18. Expect to see and hear a lot more about this team as they continue to grow and develop. They definitely have players that college coaches at every level will be recruiting!!
