On Friday evening at the historic Freedom Hall, Louisville fans got a chance to get an early look at three future Cardinals at the annual Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic. Needless to say, they didn’t disappoint.
Quentin Snider, Jaylen Johnson and Chinanu Onuaku were a part of the White Team who defeated the Green Team 128 to 104.
Snider earned MVP honors for the White Team. The Louisville native finished with eight points, nine assists and four rebounds with one steal and zero turnovers.
Johnson finished 14 points and 10 rebounds. The hybrid forward showcased his athletic ability and upside. Snider and Johnson played very well together in the open floor.
Onuaku finished with seven points and ten rebounds. He was just 3-of-11 from the floor, but collected four steals and two blocks. As I’ve mentioned throughout the week, it’s tough for big guys like Onuaku to shine in All Star type settings.
We’ll have much more from the Derby Classic posted throughout the weekend.
