Kentucky Mr and Miss Basketball Finalists Announced
The 5 finalists for Mr. Basketball and Miss Basketball were announced today.
Here is the release:
The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation, in connection with the All-Star Classic announces the prestigious titles of Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball. In 2012, KLEF hosted the First Annual Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony in which the top five candidates for each title were invited to an awards ceremony set up similar to the “Heisman” award presented in college football. The ceremony was held at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville and served as a fundraiser for KLEF while bringing back former Mr. and Miss Basketball’s for the announcement of the 2012 titles.
Coach Winston Bennett and his wife Peggy Bennett are the 2013 Honorary Chairs of this event planned tentatively for March 29, 2013.
