King of Bluegrass Recap

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Chane Behanan started to steal the show at the King of the Bluegrass, but it was Bradley signee Remy Abell who scored at will and led his squad to the championship.

Levi Randolph, SG, Bob Jones – A smart, patient prospect, Randolph picks his spots, doesn't take bad shots and affects the game in a number of areas. His mid-range game is his bread and butter, but his shot extends past the three-point stripe. Randolph, an Alabama signee, also left his imprint on the game with his ability to snag rebounds and toss out crisp passes. Overall Randolph finished 7-for-15 from the field on his way to 18 points and 12 rebounds.

Darius Nelson, PF, Sheldon – Matched up against Bob Jones, Nelson looked to expose the Patriots lack of size in the paint. Using his wide, but strong, lower frame, Nelson carved out position and attacked the basket. He has a unique ability to finish and he knows how to use his body to shield off the opposition. Nelson finished with 24 points on 7-for-20 shooting. He also grabbed 12 rebounds.

Zach Price, C, Jeffersontown – It was hard for Price, a 6-foot-10 big man headed to Louisville, to get things going. Strapped with foul trouble, Price didn't play, but 13 minutes. One thing we noticed about Price was his ability to get up and down the floor. He's moving much better than in the past and he's equipped with a frame that will add some significant weight. He scored six points and had four boards in the win.

Tony Kimbro, SF, Jeffersontown – An interesting prospect, Kimbro got better as the game went on. Kimbro, a 6-foot-5 wing, often times plays on the ball and is equipped with a unique skill set. He's a talented passer and in the first half he was driving and looking to kick. In the second half he looked to score more and completed a handful of plays in the paint. He finished 5-for-6 from the field scoring 14 points.

Remy Abell, SG, Eastern – Early on it was the Behanan show, but slowly Abell, a 6-foot-3 guard headed to Bradley, began to impose his will on the game. Abell is a terrific driver and he found his way to the hoop in both the half court and in transition. What impressed us the most was his middle game. He knocked down pull-up jumpers and floaters, as well as a three-pointer. Abell seemingly scored at will on his way to 30 plus in a win over Bowling Green.

Chane Behanan, PF, Bowling Green – In the first half Behanan, a 6-foot-7, 260-pound forward was an animal inside. Behanan was all over the offensive glass, pushed the break when he could and scored at will in the paint. He finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds in the half. The third quarter was a different story, as he struggled to get touches. Regardless he's a terrific player and a guy that can step into Louisville and get significant minutes right away.

Jeffrey Moss, SG, Bob Jones – Playing on the opposite wing of Randolph, Moss, a 6-foot-3, 18-pounder, slipped to the basket and found ways to get easy buckets. He worked the baseline for drop off passes and got out in transition. A solid athlete that finished through contact a handful of times, Moss is a solid-looking mid-major prospect. He finished 5-for-12 from the field for 11 points and six rebounds.

Charles Foster, SG, Trinity – The Shamrocks guard put together a solid outing against Boone County. Foster knocked in a mid-range jumper and had a handful of finishes at the rim. He finished 4-for-6 from the field, on his way to scoring 12 points and tossing out four assists.

Although we didn't watch LaMontray Harris, of PRP, exclusively we saw him make a couple of plays. For a freshman he has a strong frame at 6-foot-5 and he's a good-looking athlete that has a future on the wing. Trinity guard James Quick is known for his spectacular play on the football field, but he's a pretty good basketball player as well. He has terrific speed and pushes the tempo at every opportunity. Tony Saxton, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, played well for the Shamrocks. He finished with 11 points.

Junior Desmond Dorsey scored 11 points on 4-for-7 shooting for Jeffersontown. A 6-foot-2 guard, Dorsey is a talented scorer that will play Division-1 ball. Kameron Woods wasn't all that productive on Tuesday, but we certainly like him as a prospect. The 6-foot-8, 195-pound versatile forward is headed to Butler.

Jeffersontown and Eastern will play for the King of the Bluegrass championship on Wednesday. The finale tips at 7:30.

Louisville assistant Steve Masiello was the only coach we spotted at the King of the Bluegrass on Tuesday. He was there to see Louisville signees Zach Price and Chane Behanan.
