The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA), Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches (KABC), and Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame (KHSBHF) are partnering to celebrate the “Centennial” of Kentucky high school basketball. The Centennial Celebration is set to tip off in Lexington at the 2017 Boys’ Sweet 16 held in Rupp Arena. In the summer of 2017, the celebratory year will continue in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, where the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame facility will open, a documentary on the sport’s history will premiere, and the Hall of Fame will induct its 100th member into the Centennial Class.
The Centennial Celebration will continue into 2017-2018 with various promotional endeavors and activities culminating during the 2018 Sweet 16 state basketball tournament in Lexington’s Rupp Arena. The Centennial Committee is actively involved in creating a plan of action reaching all of Kentucky’s 120 counties and the schools, communities, fans, media outlets, and businesses that have contributed to the culture of basketball in the Commonwealth.
