The Road to Rupp begins with a huge weekend of basketball coverage as we will have writers covering high school basketball games in several gyms throughout the state.
Here is a rundown of what is going on this weekend.
Tonight I will be in Pikeville at the Expo Center to cover the 1st round of the 15th region All A Classic. Pikeville plays East Ridge and South Floyd plays Betsy Layne. Both games include teams that are heated district rivals and are looking to advance in the tournament, but are also vying for county bragging rights.

Shelby Valley vs. Sheldon Clark 9am
Magoffin County vs. Lawrence County 10:30am

The action starts at 5:00pm with Harlan County playing Lincoln County. The big game of the day is #1 Bullitt East, with Kentucky 2013 signee Derek Willis, playing the host Lexington Catholic Knights at 6:30pm.
