Why Is Maysville Kentucky Cheering Tennesee?
It's because of one very talented basketball player, Chris Lofton. The Maysville native, Lofton, led Mason County to the 2003 state basketball championship. After he was passed over by Kentucky recruiters, he finally signed to Tennessee where he's flourished with a 44.9-percent accuracy through two seasons. As Bruce Pearl announced to Maysville audiences, Tennessee named Lofton its 2006 Male Athlete of the Year.
Mason County loves Chris Lofton, so Mason County loves Tennessee.
