-- Grant McVay, head coach at Clay City High School, who will be coaching in his eighth tournament in 2008.

"As a player, it was nice to come into the tournament because it was a taste of sectional basketball. It was a lot of fun and exciting to be part of this tournament. It was like a mid-season sectional tournament. Now I get a chance to experience the tournament as a head coach."

-- Clarence Johnson, head coach at Union (Dugger) High School and former player at Worthington-Jefferson High School.
