  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    Over the past three-and-a-half weeks, Brandon Price has put on all kind of dazzling, jaw-dropping performances.

    He’s hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer lifting that capped a crazy comeback win over Jeffersontown, sunk game-sealing free throws to capture the Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament title game and hit a game-tying jumpshot that helped the John Hardin Bulldogs force overtime and an eventual win over LaRue County in the 5th Region Tournament semifinals.  

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    It wouldn’t have been strange to walk in the John Hardin locker room at halftime and hear Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” The Bulldogs found themselves in a nine-point hole after trailing by as many as 15 in the first 16 minutes.

    Instead of hitting the panic button, the Bulldogs stayed the course and continued to follow the game plan despite the deficit. Most importantly, they believed they could come back.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    Coaches know at this point of the season there are no cupcakes, but the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament has a sweet semifinal match-up, nonetheless.

    Two of the top four teams in terms of winning percentage meet in the region semifinals when John Hardin (20-8) takes on LaRue County (23-7) at 6 tonight at Central Hardin’s Bruin Gym. John Hardin is riding an eight-game winning streak, while LaRue County has won seven in a row.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Age is just a number, right? You’re as young – or old – as you feel. We’ve heard all those lines. In sports, teams usually can be classified in one of two ways. Either a team has veterans. Or a team is young.

    This season, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers fell into the second category. They only had three seniors, and only two of them had much varsity experience. By the end of the year after a rash of injuries, the core of the team was made up of one sophomore, three freshmen and one eighth-grader.

    The veteran Marion County Lady Knights looked their age Sunday evening on Central Hardin’s Terry Buckles Court. And unfortunately for Elizabethtown, the young and turnover-prone Lady Panthers looked their age, too, in front of more than 2,500 inside Bruin Gym.

    Led by their upperclassman foursome, the second-ranked Lady Knights led from wire-to-wire against the ninth-ranked Lady Panthers, pulling away for a 56-39 win in the championship game of the 38th annual Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    The Meade County Green Wave’s cold shooting Saturday night led to the end of their season at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    The Green Wave made just 33.3 percent of their shots from the field as they fell to Owensboro Apollo, 82-55 in the semifinals of the Boys’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    North Hardin’s postseason nemesis sent the Lady Trojans home again.

    After a lackluster first-quarter defensive effort, the Marion County Lady Knights added a little bit more hustle and it made everything flow.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Veteran Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd didn’t know what his team was doing in the opening 5 minutes Saturday against the Green County Lady Dragons.

    The Lady Panthers knew exactly what they were doing the final 27 minutes – rolling to a record seventh consecutive berth in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament final.
