LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Two of the top high school basketball players in the state of Kentucky faced off on Saturday evening in the Second Chance Shootout event, giving fans at Lexington Catholic High School a treat.

Reed Sheppard, North Laurel star and Kentucky basketball signee, is the No. 1 player in the state in the class of 2023 and met centerstage with Travis Perry, the Lyon County star who has an offer from Kentucky and other top D-I programs, and is the No. 1 player in the state in the class of 2024.

The four-star recruits each led their teams in scoring with Perry exploding for 45 points, including 10-of-16 from distance. Sheppard racked up a triple-double with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists.

Lyon County got the 90-83 win over North Laurel, a matchup that high school basketball fans could dream of seeing again at Rupp Arena in the Sweet 16 state tournament.

Perry is chasing the Kentucky high school basketball career scoring record, approaching 4,000 career points in second place as he approaches the record of 4,337 held by Kelly “King” Coleman.

While Sheppard is locked into Kentucky, the thought of Perry joining him in Lexington a year later is an exciting thought for local fans. His offers outside of Kentucky include Michigan, Ole Miss, Purdue, Virginia and more.

In the first game of the Second Chance Shootout, host Lexington Catholic picked up a 69-55 win over Male behind 24 points from Hudson Sparks.
