Thursday Headlines: Travis Perry Edition

The future Cat impressed in front of Calipari and the current UK players yesterday

Syndication: The Courier-Journal Sam Upshaw Jr./Courier Journal / USA TODAY NETWORK

Travis Perry and his Lyon County squad played in Lexington on Wednesday as part of the White, Greer, and Maggard Holiday Classic, bringing out John Calipari and several of the Kentucky Wildcats players.

All eyes were on the future Wildcat, and Perry didn’t disappoint.

In a 97-41 blowout victory over Bourbon County in the opening round of the tournament, Perry scored 28 points on 11/17 shooting.

Perry also added four rebounds and 5 assists in the win.

Perry continues to show he’s the real deal, as is this Lyon County team.

The Lyons recently participated in the City of Palms Classic, where Perry erupted for 40 points in a 93-64 win over Buckhorn (Alabama), catching a ton of attention.

Being the all-time leading scorer in Kentucky High School Basketball History, these types of performances should come as no surprise, but Perry continues to impress every time he hits the floor.

Tweet of the Day

High praise for the future Cat.
