Hall of Fame

Basketball will no doubt be something Kentuckians from every generation will have in common. It stirs memories that span decades and will forever prove to be a conversation piece over which they can reminisce together and yes, even allow for some friendly debate.

For nearly 100 years, High School Basketball has been a source of every community's identity, character, and spirit, from the smallest town to the largest city. Understanding the value and contributions of the men and women who played and coached the game the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame has been established.
