Former Knott Central standouts return to the Bluegrass to play in front of Patriot faithful

MOREHEAD, Ky. (WYMT) - "And to be honest they looked good on the floor, I thought. I just - guess I miss them a whole lot, you know," said an emotional Bb King, the head coach at Knott Central.

King most likely echoes the sentiments of all those who came out to see Camron Justice and Evan Hall play for IUPUI. Both of the Knott County natives appreciated the support.

That's the way it was when Cam and I played. We always had a packed house at Knott Central," Hall said. "From the beginning we knew, cause we couldn't even get enough tickets for everybody. So I knew it was coming."

"To be able to come back to the mountains and play in front of familiar faces is just a great feeling," Justice added. He had 20 points on the evening. "Just to give back to the community one other way."

The two played together for four successful years at Knott Central, and now they are together again after Justice transferred in from Vanderbilt. Hall said it's not only helped the team, but him personally having his longtime friend back.

"To get him on this team was just a blessing from God honestly," Hall said. "I mean I got him, I even started playing better myself, just being more comfortable out there on the floor and it's just awesome to have him back."
