basketball-shotHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (7/18/14) — The Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame inducted 16 new members in its 2014 class at The State Theater in downtown Elizabethtown Saturday night.

The 2014 class is made up of girls' coach Bunny Daugherty (Sacred Heart), boys' coaches Dale Mabrey (Pleasure Ridge Park) and Al Prewitt (Henry Clay), girls' players Lisa Harrison (Southern), Crystal Kelly (Sacred Heart) and Beth Wilkerson Hammond (Paris) and boys' players Jack Givens (Bryan Station), Vernon Hatton (Lafayette), Kenny Higgs (Owensboro), Ron King (Central), Chris Lofton (Mason County), Todd May (Virgie), John Oldham (Hartford), Frank Ramsey (Madisonville), Mike Redd (Seneca) and Corky Withrow (Central City).

The Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame will induct 100 members of its "Centennial Class" by 2018, the year that will mark the 100th year of the Kentucky boys' high school basketball state tournament. Through three years, 49 of the 100 members of the "Centennial Class" have been inducted.

The idea for the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame came from the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches. Under the guidance of North Hardin High School boys' head basketball coach Ron Bevars, the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame began in October 2009 with the stated purpose of recognizing and protecting the heritage of Kentucky high school basketball.

Elizabethtown serves as the permanent home of the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.
