ZACK KLEMME: If the slipper fits

(Continued)

MOREHEAD —

Dunlap plans to miss tonight’s girls’ final because he wants to be well-rested for Saturday, when he’ll be in Johnson Arena for all four boys’ quarterfinals.

“I hate to miss the championship game, but I need to rest a little bit,” he said.

Dunlap turns 65 in June. He called his first region tournament in 1972, he said.

Since then, it’s become an important week to him.

“You get to see a lot of people you don’t see during the year, or you just briefly get to see them (then),” Dunlap said. “You get to see some people that I met back 40 years ago, and now they’re in different states. And it’s really fun, and it’s just exciting to see tournament ball here in Kentucky. There can’t be anything else (quite like it).”
