Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic: Rosters and Ticket Info

Kentucky Derby Festival

There have been just a couple of updates since the rosters came out, and with the game being this week, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to post it again.

The Derby Festival Basketball Classic will be held this Saturday, April 11 at 7:00 at Freedom Hall. You have the chance to come out and see some of the best high school basketball players in the country compete in this All-Star game. So you are just a Louisville fan and that is all you care about, what’s in it for you? Well, all four players that are committed to Louisville (3 have signed) will be playing in this game. So yes, you get to see Donovan Mitchell, Deng Adel, Raymond Spalding, and Ryan McMahon.

Your ticket to the game on Saturday also gets you into the Night of the Future Stars, which takes place on Friday at New Albany High School at 7:00. During that, you will see different games and contests like the dunk contest, 3-point contest, and more competitions between the players. There is also an autograph session right after the event on Friday.
