  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    The North Hardin Lady Trojans have gone from dealing with one future NCAA Division-I post player in the 17th District final Saturday night to having to match up with another D-I player at 6 tonight as they take on senior center Cierra Drake and the Nelson County Lady Cardinals in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at Green County.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    When longtime LaRue County coach Travis Wootton thinks about the last time his team faced Adair County, he can’t help but get a little fired up.

    The Lady Hawks had just wrapped up the No. 1 seed for the Girls’ 18th District Basketball Tournament and were playing their third game in four nights, and Wootton said fatigue was a factor as Adair County held off LaRue County, 52-43 on Feb. 2.

    Wootton said his team didn’t play like it should have, and the Lady Indians took advantage.

  • BOYS' 3RD REGION BASKETBALL...

    The Meade County Green Wave wanted to send retiring coach Jerry Garris out with at least one more victory, but the Owensboro Red Devils spoiled those plans Tuesday night.

    Owensboro used a balanced scoring attack to knock the Green Wave out of the Boys’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament with a 65-45 win in the quarterfinals at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    Six players scored six or more points for Owensboro (19-10), which advances to face Ohio County in Friday’s semifinals. Ohio County moved on with a 64-40 win over Grayson County.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    MUNFORDVILLE — North Hardin coach Ron Bevars doesn’t have much hair and what he does have has already turned gray, so he doesn’t want to pull his hair out and he doesn’t have to worry about it going gray watching his Trojans.

    But they do drive him crazy at times.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    The North Hardin Trojans are in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament for the second consecutive year, but for most of them, this will be a new experience.

    Senior Scotty Sterusky is the only one to start in last year’s 63-57 loss to Bardstown in the quarterfinals, while seniors Nick Lewis and Tyler Landry both came off the bench. Meanwhile, the other three Trojans – senior guard Ruben Gosa, junior forward Khalil Rasheed and sophomore guard Tyronn King – who have logged the most minutes this season weren’t even with the team last year.

  • BOYS' 3RD REGION BASKETBALL...

    Connor Williams will readily admit he’s not the most adept on the basketball court.

    The Meade County senior forward isn’t the most coordinated player, either, and he isn’t expected to score a lot for the Green Wave.

    But there’s one thing the 6-foot-4 Williams can do pretty well, and he’s content with that role. Williams is Meade County’s leading rebounder, averaging six per game entering today’s 7 p.m. quarterfinal matchup with the Owensboro Red Devils in the Boys’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament.

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County junior Tyler Howell made sure the Hawks got off on the right foot in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament and senior Kelton Ford made sure they finished it that way.

    Howell scored the team’s first 12 points and 14 of the first 16 to help the Hawks build a 23-point halftime lead and Ford had 12 in the second half to hold off the Adair County Indians, 58-45 on Monday night in the region quarterfinals at Hart County.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    MUNFORDVILLE — Like two prized heavyweights matching one another punch-for-punch, the John Hardin Bulldogs finally landed a haymaker the Bardstown Tigers feared.

    Trailing by two with less than 5 minutes left, John Hardin used a 10-2 fourth-quarter spurt to seize control and the Bulldogs held on for a 68-64 victory over Bardstown on Monday night in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at Hart County.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    Adair County coach Mark Fudge admitted he didn’t want to face the John Hardin Bulldogs in the first round of the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament.

    Instead of facing the region’s hottest team, Adair County drew the LaRue County Hawks, the team with the second-longest win streak heading into the region tournament.
