  • BOYS' SWEET 16: Seniors...

    LEXINGTON — The John Hardin Bulldogs have enjoyed more success the last three years than any stretch during the program’s 12-year history.

    Much of that can be attributed to the seniors – Brandon Price, Daveon Greene, Ricky Burns, Adryan Jackson and Johannesburg Boulware.

    The Bulldogs have compiled a 74-17 record the last three years. The 74 wins are the most in a three-year span, breaking the mark of 73 set from 2005-07.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: Bulldogs...

    LEXINGTON — After John Hardin’s 66-57 loss to Montgomery County in the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament quarterfinals, junior guard Keon Williams posed a simple, but challenging question to his teammates.

    If the Bulldogs are going to get back to the state tournament for a third consecutive year, Williams made a heart-felt plea to his teammates.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: Second...

    LEXINGTON — John Hardin junior guard Patrick Anderson was a bystander during last year’s KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament. He traveled with the team, but he was in street clothes, relegating him to basically being a cheerleader from the bench.

    It was a disappointing end to a season which was delayed by injury. A shoulder injury in the Class 5-A state semifinal loss to Bowling Green caused him to miss the start the season. After playing in 11 games, Anderson sat out the final 16 games with another shoulder injury.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: Montgomery...

    LEXINGTON — The John Hardin Bulldogs had a bad case of déjà vu Friday night during the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament quarterfinals.

    Like their quarterfinal loss last year to Scott County, the Bulldogs fell behind and had to play catch-up the entire second half. Unlike the 61-40 loss to the Cardinals, they rallied to pull even at 50-all, giving them newfound hope they could reach the semifinals for the first time in school history.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: John Hardin...

    LEXINGTON - With the score tied at 50-50 with 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Montgomery County scored six unanswered points and never trailed the rest of way en route to a Sweet 16 State Tournament quarterfinal victory Friday night over John Hardin. The final score was 66-57.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: John Hardin...

    LEXINGTON — When John Hardin coach Mark Wells was asked about Montgomery County – the Bulldogs’ quarterfinal opponent in the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament – he scoffed at the notion he knew much about the Indians.

    The Bulldogs were fresh off a 79-69 victory over Fleming County on Thursday afternoon in the first round of the state tournament at Rupp Arena. Wells said he wasn’t looking past the Panthers and the coaching staff would begin preparations for Montgomery County later in the evening.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: Burns steps...

    LEXINGTON — The work John Hardin senior forward Ricky Burns does on a basketball court usually doesn’t show up on a stat sheet.

    Burns isn’t typically going to fill up a boxscore with gaudy numbers. He’s not a flashy player, and if you’re not looking for him, he might not even get noticed.

    Burns, though, is exactly the type of player you want to root for. He’s not the most gifted, but he gives his team every ounce of energy from the time he steps on the floor until the final horn sounds.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16: Bulldogs...

    LEXINGTON— Thursday’s 79-69 victory over the Fleming County Panthers was exactly what the John Hardin Bulldogs needed to get the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament rolling.

    After struggling in its two games at last year’s state tournament, the Bulldogs had no such problems getting adjusted to the spacious surroundings at Rupp Arena. They scored on their first possession and led wire-to-wire.
