Greenup County girls basketball coach Paul Miller had a big smile on his face after play Saturday in the Border Wars tournament.
Saturday was the culmination of four months worth of hard work, meetings and coordination between he and his volunteers as Greenup County hosted the event, which brought teams together from Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia.
Not only did it bring together some non-traditional competition, but it also allowed Miller — now in his second year with the Musketeers — to show how serious that Greenup County is about girls basketball moving forward.
“We’ve been working this thing for four months now and when I first introduced it to my people, I told them this would be a perfect way to put Greenup County back on the map,” Miller said. “We want to make sure they understand we’re here and we love basketball.”
The event spanned three days with 12 teams split into four pods of three teams.
