NCAA BASKETBALL | In-State Kentucky Basketball Tournament?

06/21/2018 02:11 PM

The Crossroads Classic is a four-team basketball event each year for the state of Indiana that features four of the biggest programs in the state: Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame and Butler.

Would Kentucky ever start an event like that?

“I think it’s great for all of us in-state people to play,” said Stansbury on Monday.

WKU head coach Rick Stansbury says he hopes there could be some type of tournament that would allow various Kentucky programs play each other each year.
