Considered an elite point guard prospect in the Class of 2014, Ballard junior Quentin Snider is headed to the biggest stage in Kentucky high school basketball.
Snider, who has been committed to the University of Louisville for over a year, helped Ballard to the Seventh Region Tournament championship on Saturday.
The 6-foot-1 Snider had 21 points, nine rebounds and five assists as Ballard downed defending state champion Trinity before a packed house at Valley High School. The win moves the Bruins into the Boys' Sweet 16.
Ballard will play 15th Region champion Johnson Central, led by top junior Shane Hall, in the opening round on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in Rupp Arena.
Snider was the Seventh Region Player of the Year and is ranked as the No. 24 prospect nationally in the '14 class by Scout.com.
Snider averages 19.7 points, 4.9 assists and 3.3 rebounds while playing just over 25 minutes a game. He's shooting 40.2 percent.
