/ Apr. 12, 2005

The Kentucky Derby Festival is pleased to announce the lineup for the adidas Derby Festival Basketball Classic. Scheduled for Saturday, April 16, the Classic will feature some of the top prep players in the nation, including four McDonald’s All-American players, as well as recruits from the University of Louisville, University of Kentucky and Indiana University. The Derby Festival is also pleased to welcome adidas as the new title sponsor of the Classic. The 33rd annual game will tip off at 7 p.m. at Freedom Hall.

Local hoops fans will get a preview of players committed to play at some of the top collegiate programs, including Duke, Syracuse, Mississippi State, UCLA and Arizona. Of special interest to area basketball fans will be UL-bound Chad Millard, Jonathon Huffman, Clarence Holloway, Andre McGee and Terrance Williams, as well as UK signee Jared Carter and IU-bound Joey Shaw.

“We are thrilled about our new partnership with adidas,” said Dan Owens, KDF Chairman and Basketball Classic Recruiting Chairman. “This year’s Basketball Classic will showcase some of the best basketball talent in the country. Several players from last year’s Classic played important roles for teams advancing to the NCAA Tournament. This is a great chance for local hoops fans to see these future stars up close and personal.”

The week’s roundball activities will kick off with the adidas Derby Festival Night of the Future Stars on Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m. at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall. Admission is free with a ticket to the Basketball Classic. Some of the event’s most exciting moments have come during the Slam Dunk and 2-on-2 contests and the 3-point shootout. The competition will also feature an autograph-signing session immediately following the event.

First held in 1973, the Derby Festival Basketball Classis is the second-oldest continuously-held high school all-star game in the nation. In 1987, the Classis set a record for attendance with a crown of 19,041 at Freedom Hall. Players such as Jamal Mashburn, Moses Malone, Rex Chapman, Pervis Ellison, Isiah Thomas, Dominique Wilkins, Darrell Griffith, Anfernee Hardaway, Jared Jeffries, Darius Miles, Derek Anderson and Dajuan Wagner have starred in the Classic.
