H.S. BASKETBALL | Bringing Prep School Hoops To Kentucky

05/03/2017 06:19 PM

Two weeks ago it was announced that prep basketball would be brought to the bluegrass.

Aspire Academy, based in Arizona, choose to relocate to Louisville. This will be the first major prep school in the state and they have plans to recruit national talent and play a national schedule.

The students will attend DeSales High School and will also share their gym for practices and games. They will be fully relocated to Louisville by the fall (they’re beginning the process in June) and are bringing five returning players with them. They hope that the in state universities will be a draw for high school kids considering playing for Aspire.

Jeremy Kipness, who was a manager for the UofL men’s basketball team in 2013, is the head coach and spoke with Spectrum News about the relocation.
