The 2022 White, Greer, & Maggard Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic was announced today on PrepSpin, who will broadcast the entire tournament. The tournament will take place from December 27-30, with each team playing three games.
Here is the full bracket with dates, times, and consolation brackets:
There will be three 10th Region Teams competing: Bracken County, Campbell County, and Mason County. Unfortunately, George Rogers Clark will play in another popular national tournament, the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, SC.
The 10th Region team pairings:
Bracken County vs. Mason County
The number #2 Royals and #3 Polar Bears will meet on a neutral floor in Lexington as a late Christmas present for fans of the 10th Region. This game will feature two of the region’s best players, #2 Blake Reed and #3 Terrell Henry. Read more about those two here. This will be a rematch of last year’s district championship game.
The two have not played in the regular season since the 2020-2021 season. Although they are in the same district, they are not required to play each other because the 39th district tournament pairings are determined by a blind draw; they do not seed.
Lexington Catholic head coach Brandon Salzman said this was one of the most requested matchups in the tournament. They will play on December 27th at 5:30 pm.
Campbell County vs. North Laurel
The Camels will be paired against the champions of the 13th Region and Kentucky commit Reed Sheppard. North Laurel is one of the teams in the mix for the Sweet Sixteen title. They will go against the best coach in the region and one of the best in the state, Aric Russell.
West Jessamine vs. North Oldham
Warren Central vs. Madison Central
Bowling Green vs. Fern Creek
Lexington Catholic vs. Christian Academy of Louisville
Lyon County vs. Cov. Holy Cross
Woodford County vs. Ballard
