The sun began peeking out from behind the clouds after snow struck central Kentucky most of the past 24 hours. Now there’s finally some clarity to some local basketball events that were tasked with rescheduling games all weekend.

The two remaining semifinals in the 11th Region All ‘A’ Classic, being held at Berea, were moved to Sunday. The girls’ game will be played at 3 p.m. with the boys’ game to follow at 4:30 p.m. Both games pit Model against Frankfort.

Lexington Christian (boys) and Sayre (girls) advanced to the championship game on Thursday. Those finals, originally scheduled for Saturday, will be played at 6 p.m. (girls) and 7:30 p.m. (boys) on Monday.

The statewide All “A” Tournaments begin on Wednesday (girls) and Thursday (boys) at the Frankfort Convention Center.

The Toyota Classic at Scott County saw its schedule reduced to four weekend boys’ games. No. 5 Scott County played Saunders (N.Y.) and No. 22 Wayne County played Lake Brantley (Fla.) on Saturday. The Kentucky teams will swap opponents on Sunday, with Wayne and Saunders meeting at 11 a.m. and Scott County and Lake Brantley playing at 1 p.m.

Lake Brantley features John Mooney, a Notre Dame signee who’s averaging 24.2 points and 12 rebounds per game. The 6-9 forward had offers from Florida and Central Florida.

Saunders senior Derrick Felder has been offered by Bryant and several Division II schools.
