    LEXINGTON – It wasn’t a thing of beauty for the John Hardin Bulldogs, but it will be remembered forever nonetheless around the school.

    Thursday night’s 49-36 victory over the Johnson Central Golden Eagles in the first round of the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen at Rupp Arena was John Hardin’s first in the state tournament. It probably doesn’t erase the painful memories of 2006 – the Bulldogs’ only other appearance – but the significance wasn’t lost on the Bulldogs.

    LEXINGTON Much of the pregame hype entering the final of the eight quarterfinals at the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament centered around Johnson Central’s 6-foot-7 sophomore center Shane Hall.

    Instead, John Hardin’s Brandon Price showed it should have been centered around someone much, much shorter.
