Wes Strader Schoolboy Classic to include WKU signee Banton

By  | 

The 2018 Wes Strader Schoolboy Classic, scheduled for Saturday at Warren Central High School, will feature a future Western Kentucky player.

Dalano Banton, a 6-foot-7 guard from Canada considered a four-star prospect, will play with his Redemption Christian Academy (Mass.) teammates against Cooper at 10:30 a.m. to begin the event. Banton, originally a 2019 recruit, reclassified to the 2018 class and signed with WKU in November.

Other scheduled games Saturday include John Hardin against Butler at noon, Owensboro Catholic against Fern Creek at 1:30 p.m. and Mercer County vs. WCHS at 3 p.m.

Western Kentucky is scheduled to host Florida International at 6 p.m. at E.A. Diddle Arena that day as well.
