    LEXINGTON — John Hardin’s offense carried the Bulldogs to the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen, but it ultimately is what doomed them once they reached Rupp Arena.

    No matter who shot the ball or how close, the Bulldogs struggled to knock down shots Friday night in the state quarterfinals and the Scott County Cardinals made them pay. The Cardinals pulled away in the final 12 minutes for a 61-40 victory.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    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.

    The John Hardin Bulldogs have faced dozens of teams and hundreds of players this season heading into their showdown at 8 tonight with the Johnson Central Golden Eagles in the first round of the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen Basketball Tournament at Lexington’s Rupp Arena.

    While waiting for his dinner Wednesday night at a Lexington-area Cracker Barrel, Bulldogs coach Mark Wells said no player compares to Johnson Central star sophomore forward Shane Hall and no team duplicates the young and lanky Golden Eagles (25-10).

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs are emerging 5th Region basketball power. Since the school opened its doors in the fall of 2001, only one school – North Hardin – in the region has more championships than the Bulldogs.

    The Bulldogs have won two region titles in the last seven years. The same number as established programs such as Bardstown and Adair County. One more than traditional power Elizabethtown. The Bulldogs are quickly becoming a program to be reckoned with.
