Last week was the first full week of summer games for Kentucky’s high school teams. While I wish I could’ve made it to more games, I was fortunate enough to catch a lot of great hoops being played across the Bluegrass last week. Last Thursday night at Mercy featured some of the state’s top teams in Mercy, Sacred Heart, and Meade County. Here are some additional standouts from those games.

Reagan Bender Reagan Bender 5'9" | SF Sacred Heart | 2024 State KY | Sacred Heart | Class of 2024

Bender is always so solid. When she’s hitting, she can drop an insane amount of points on the best of them. When she’s not hitting, she still finds ways to get buckets. She is a phenomenal and consistent shooter. She can shoot from anywhere on the floor and she doesn’t need much space to get her shot off. She catches ready to pull, but she can also shoot off of the dribble or drive. When she drives, she uses her strength and can finish difficult shots through contact. Bender has good handles and always seems ready to go. She isn’t afraid to be aggressive and bring high intensity on the defensive end either.
