The daughters of Tick Rogers and Anthony Epps are headed to the University of Louisville.

Kyvin Goodin-Rogers and Makayla Epps, juniors-to-be at Marion County High School, are members of the 2013 recruiting class. Both are ranked nationally and have already been named twice to the Courier-Journal’s All-State team.

Kyvin, the 6-foot-1 daughter of former U of L guard Tick Rogers, averaged 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds while also collecting 95 blocked shots as a sophomore. Makayla, the 5-foot-10 daughter of UK guard Anthony Epps,  averaged 16.8 points, 4.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 steals last season.

Marion County coach Trent Milby told the CJ’s Jody Demling: “The system fits them both. They fell in love with Jeff Walz from day one. We went up there the first time in November of their freshman year and I think from that day on they knew they wanted to go there.”

  1. this is huge keeping the in state talent at home plus their playing in my hometown and going to my team just makes it that much more sweeter for me

  2. These girls still have two years of high school to go. Two state titles in the future?

    Having met with and interviewed Kyvin and Makayla in the past, I can tell you that both are “class acts” and will fit in well with the student-athletes currently on Jeff Walz’s Lady Cards basketball team.
