The Kentucky Travelers wrapped up their summer schedule with a big victory Sunday, defeating the SYF Players 73-66 to win the KC Prep Invitational in Shawnee, Kan.
The KC Prep Invitational’s top division included the Travelers and 15 other teams from across the country. The Kentucky squad finished the week with a perfect 6-0 record against that competition.
The Travelers, who were based in Kentucky this year after more than two decades in Tennessee, exceeded expectations during the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League season. They were one of 24 teams to advance to the Nike Peach Jam, and came one win short from making the event’s quarterfinal round earlier this month in South Carolina.
The Travelers under-16 team also won their division championship Sunday.
