A book chronicling the history of Kentucky high school basketball has been compiled by Jeff Bridgeman.
Bridgeman spent several years researching “every team, every school, every year from the beginning of high school basketball in Kentucky through 2012.” He said he made thousands of phone calls to people in every county and combed through records of the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches and the Kentucky High School Athletics Association.
Kentucky High School Basketball Records & Facts includes boys and girls teams including team records and coaches beginning in 1906; all postseason scores; Sweet 16 All-Tournament members; All-State; Coach of the Year; Mr. & Miss Basketball; and photos of every state championship team.
The Hodgenville Eagles, Magnolia Majors, Buffalo Bisons and LaRue County Hawks are included in the book, Bridgeman said.
The book is $39.95 plus shipping. It can be ordered by calling 1-877-427-2665 or online at www.acclaimpress.com.
