Bullitt East boys open Thursday in star-studded Tournament of Champions in Missouri

By

The Bullitt East High School boys’ basketball team will open play Thursday in the prestigious Bass Pro Shops Tournament of Champions in Springfield, Mo.

The Chargers (15-3), No. 3 in the state in The Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous Ratings, will face Nixa (Mo.) at 9 p.m. in a quarterfinal.

Bullitt East chose to play in the Tournament of Champions instead of the Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament.

The eight-team Tournament of Champions includes two squads ranked nationally in the USA Today Super 25 — No. 2 Montverde (Fla.) and No. 22 Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco.

Montverde features 6-foot-10 senior Dakari Johnson, who recently committed to the University of Kentucky, and 6-4 junior D’Angelo Russell, who played as a freshman at Louisville’s Central High School.

The semifinals and finals will be broadcast live by the CBS Sports Network.
