I have been wanting to post this for some time but with all of the Kentucky news it has been placed on the back burner. At the Sweet Sixteen tournament I was able to watch the PG for the Elliot County Lions, Ethan Faulkner, who some time ago signed with Coach Dave Bezold at Northern Kentucky University. Faulker was part of a four senior tandem, which included is twin brother Evan, that let their Elliott County team to the Semi-finals of the State tournament and a 32-3 season. During his varsity career at Elliott County Faulkner scored over 2,000 points, his senior class combined with brother Evan and Johnathan Ferguson scored over 7,000 points in their career.
Ethan is a very fundamentally sound basketball player who really looks to open the floor and enable his teammates. He very quick and explosive and attacks the basket very well for his size. He isn't tiny, 6'2" 180 with an athletic frame. If there was one knock that I could see based on my three game observation was he will definitely need to improve his defense. Overall this is a great signing for Northern Kentucky University.
If you didn't catch this story a couple of months ago Pat Forde of ESPN wrote a great story about the Elliot County Team.
