The 2017 KY State AAU Age Based Championships took place this past weekend at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington, KY. This tournament featured some really good teams including the nationally ranked 2024 Western KY Wildcats. Results from each divisional championship game are listed below.
|2024 WKY Wildcats|
The Western KY Wildcats won their 4th consecutive KY AAU State championship in commanding fashion. They defeated each team in pool play by an average of 35 pts and cruised into bracket play. It was no different in the Championship bracket. The Wildcats beat Team Vision 69-23 in the quarterfinals and defeated the Louisville Magic 75-48 in the semifinals. The championship game was another easy win against the Royal Legends, dominating the game en route to a 70-36 victory. This team sports a two-headed monster with nationally ranked 2024 players F Travis Perry and G Brooklyn Vick. Perry and Vick also play with each other on Vick's AAU squad, Vick4Kids.
|2025 Louisville Magic|
6th Grade KY State AAU Champions: Louisville Magic
The Louisville Magic came out on top in the 6th grade division. They had an impressive run in pool and bracket play, winning each game by average of 48 points. They defeated Louisville United handily in the championship game 72-33 to secure the state title. This team can put points on the board in a hurry but also plays great on the defensive end. The Magic has great length and height in the frontcourt, which helps anchor the defense. This team could be one of the best in the country and will be tested on the AAU circuit, including playing in the NYBL. Some of these players will be on our upcoming BCR 2023 Watchlist and are looking to make a name for themselves this AAU season.
|2022 Louisville United|
7th Grade KY State AAU Champions: Louisville United
Louisville United were the winners of the 7th grade division at the KY AAU State championships. This team had some dominate performances including a 89-69 semifinal win vs Quinn Anvils and a 72-29 victory vs D1 in the championship. Louisville United has a dynamic lead guard in Kobe Stoudemire but the showcase pieces are big men Ben Michel and Ethan Oakley, who are both at least 6'4. These twin towers are going to be hard for any team to contain, especially on the boards and interior defense. Looking forward to great things from this team this summer.
