BENTON, Ky. — The Marshall County Hoop Fest game between Curie High (Ill.) and Evangelical Christian (Tenn.) scheduled for Friday has been cancelled.
Evangelical Christian Coach Terry Tippett told the Herald-Leader that the expected winter weather was the reason for the cancellation.
The game was going to be missing its two star players anyway. Curie’s Cliff Alexander would have been serving a one-game suspension after receiving two technical fouls in his last game. Evangelical Christian’s Skal Labissiere — a top UK target — will be sidelined for several weeks with a stress fracture in his back.
Tournament organizers told the Herald-Leader that the rest of this weekend’s games will go on as planned. Some of the participating teams had already arrived in Marshall County on Thursday.
