Basketball Hall of Fame Looking to Hardin County for Help
The Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches is asking Elizabethtown tourism officials to help market the state's new Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame. Association executive director Ken Trivette told the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention board the Hall will preserve the stories and contributions of coaches and players.
The News-Enterprise reported Trivette told tourism officials the Hall will be made up of a physical location in Elizabethtown coupled with a mobile exhibit that would travel throughout Kentucky. The Elizabethtown location hasn't been decided yet.
The first induction ceremony for the Hall was held in Elizabethtown in July. The goal is to have a class of 100 inductees in place by 2018 which is the 100th anniversary of high school basketball in Kentucky.
