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.

Kentucky is shooting 41% behind the are this season. More firepower on the way with ESPN 100 Travis Perry.— Paul Biancardi (@PaulBiancardi) December 27, 2023

High praise for the future Cat.
The Clemson Tigers, who won national championships in 2016 and 2018, are led by quarterback Cade Klubnik to go with running backs Phil Mafah and Will Shipley.
A win would be a great way to wrap up his time in Lexington.
The Kentucky duo is among 100 selected.
Hopefully the Cats can take advantage of a depleted Clemson defense.
Interesting move by Sean Payton.
The top seeds are still up for grabs.
Things are bad in Detroit.
A tough first start for the Vols young QB.
