    MUNFORDVILLE — The North Hardin Trojans are back in a familiar position – the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament championship.

    Exploding for 22 points in the third quarter, the Trojans pulled away from the Bethlehem Eagles, 61-49 in the late semifinal Friday night at Hart County High School.

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County senior Kelton Ford won the scoring battle over John Hardin senior Brandon Price on Friday night, but Price and the Bulldogs earned something more valuable – a date in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament final.

    In a battle of region’s two premier point guards, Ford scored a game-high 37 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Price’s night wasn’t bad as he had 32 points, eight assists and three rebounds to help the Bulldogs earn a second consecutive trip to the region championship.

    North Hardin Christian’s season came to an end in a 52-51 loss to Wesley Christian on Thursday in the Girls’ KCAA State Tournament quarterfinals at Asbury University.

    Senior Missy Schneider chipped in with nine points and 16 rebounds, and junior Bree Hammond scored eight.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT...

    Standing in John Hardin’s path to the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament championship is once again the LaRue County Hawks.

    The teams met last year in the region semifinals with John Hardin pulling out an 84-78 overtime victory. The Hawks led by 15 in the first half and held a 12-point advantage in the third quarter before the Bulldogs rallied to force overtime on Brandon Price’s jumper and then pulled away on their way to their second region championship.

    One thing about Ruben Gosa is that opposing teams usually know the North Hardin guard is going to have the ball in his hands since he’s the team’s main offensive threat.

    Stopping the 6-foot senior can be something altogether different.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    Spurred by sensational sophomore Morgan Turner, the Meade County Lady Waves cleared a big obstacle Thursday night.

    Turner scored a game-high 28 points and had 13 rebounds to lead the Lady Waves to a 64-56 win over Owensboro in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    “It was just a super performance,” Meade County coach Josh Hurt said of Turner. “She really put us on her back early and made some big plays late. She was a dominant player and she really was able to shine on a big stage.”

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG These slow starts are quickly getting on the nerves of Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd.

    For the second straight postseason tournament game Thursday night, Mudd’s Lady Panthers had a hard time getting in a groove. But much like it did in Saturday’s win over North Hardin in the 17th District Tournament final, a sluggish beginning mattered little.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    Morgan Turner believes the Meade County Lady Waves have what it takes to be playing in Bowling Green in two weeks.

    But if the Lady Waves want to make it to Western Kentucky University’s Diddle Arena – the site of the girls’ state tournament – they must first take care of business in the 3rd Region Basketball Tournament at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    Meade County’s road to State begins tonight at 7 as it faces the Owensboro Lady Devils in the tournament quarterfinals.
