The Ky Derby Festival night of Future Stars was held tonight in New Albany at Indiana University Southeast. The athletes competed in 2 on 2 competition, 3 point and dunk contests. The finals of the 3 point and dunk contests will be held tomorrow night at halftime of the Derby Festival Classic held at Freedom Hall. Louisville commit, Darius Perry, made the finals of the dunk contest after hammering home the final dunk of the night. It was a dunk that Donovan Mitchell told him to try. Perry also told me that Mitchell gave him a dunk to try in the finals but wouldn’t reveal what dunk he will attempt. Donovan and Deng Adel both were both in attendance tonight for the dunk contest.
Along with Perry, Malik Williams and Lance Thomas both participated in the night. Jordan Nwora was not there because he was at the Jordan Brand Classic. Perry assured me that Nwora will be in Louisville in time for the Classic tomorrow night.
I’ll have photos of the night soon but here is a short video to enjoy…..
