Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Coach Cal and Coach K in the Thick of Things at Hoophall Classic

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (via OakleyOriginals)

The Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Massachusetts is an annual destination for many of the nation's top coaches. Why? Big time recruits, of course.

Today, John Calipari and Mike Krzyzewski were among the headliners to appear at Hoophall, keeping an eye on some of the kids they are trying to woo to their respective schools:

Among the attendees for Monday's opener between St. Anthony (NJ) and Miller Grove (GA) were University of Kentucky coach John Calipari and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.

With his deep Western Massachusetts connections, Calipari has been a regular at the Hoophall Classic over the years, but his presence still sends a buzz around the room. On Monday that buzz was amplified by the sight of Coach K just a few feet away.

Cal is eyeing 6'9" big forward Tony Parker from Miller Grove in Georgia, as well as hanging around to see the nation's #1 recruit, wing forward/off guard Shabazz Muhammad of Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, play his game against legendary DaMatha Catholic.

MassLive also has a little video of 2013 combo forward Kuran Iverson (yes, he's related to Allen Iverson), a player that Kentucky has shown some interest in (and he is certainly interested in Kentucky, among others), but as far as I can tell, has not been offered by Coach Cal.


There is more video of Iverson over at Five Star Basketball.
