The Bluegrass Sports Commission (BSC) named Louisville’s Quentin Snider the winner of its Most Valuable Player award of today’s men’s basketball game between the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville.
No. 10/11 Louisville improves its record to 11-1 with the 73-70 win over No. 6/5 Kentucky who falls to 10-2 on the year.
Snider led all scorers with a season-high 22 points. The Louisville native also tied his career and season highs with six rebounds in the Cardinal win.
“The Bluegrass Sports Commission congratulates Quentin and the Louisville Cardinals on their win,” said BSC President Brian Miller. “Tonight’s game was a heavyweight title fight between two great teams. We’d like to wish both teams good luck as they begin conference play. The Commonwealth should be in for a treat come March.”
Snider’s award adds him to the list of previous award winners including Josh Harrellson (UK-2010), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (UK-2011), Russ Smith (UofL-2012), James Young (UK-2013) and Tyler Ulis (UK) who won the honor in 2014 and 2015.
This award winner, which is presented annually, was selected by a committee of the BSC Board of Directors.
