  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    One of the biggest moments in Elizabethtown’s victory over North Hardin to win its record eighth consecutive Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament didn’t even take place on the court.

    It came in the locker room as the Lady Panthers found themselves in a 20-17 hole. One might expect Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd to give a paint-peeling speech at halftime to rile his Lady Panthers up after a lackluster first half.

    But Mudd did exactly the opposite. Like always, he took a calm approach to motivate his young squad.

  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    Erin Boley kept hitting shots to hit a big personal milestone Saturday night. The freshman forward’s team hit another.

    Boley scored a team-high 22 points to surpass the 1,000-point mark of her Elizabethtown career and help the top-seeded Lady Panthers overcome a monster performance by North Hardin senior forward Chanel Roberts in a 52-46 win over the second-seeded Lady Trojans in the championship game of the Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    So we meet again.

    That’s the case for the John Hardin Bulldogs and Bardstown Tigers, who will meet for the third consecutive year in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament in a showdown of preseason favorites.

    John Hardin coach Mark Wells had a feeling once he found out Bardstown lost in the 19th District final this was going to happen.

    “I don’t know what it is,” Wells said. “Something links us to playing every year. They’re a tough opponent to play in the first round.”

  • SATURDAY MORNING HOOPS UPDATE:...

    LEWISPORT — Call it the change that will haunt the Meade County Green Wave and veteran coach Jerry Garris for a long time.

    During a timeout in the fourth quarter Friday night, Garris switched up defenses – going from a man-to-man to a zone – and the top-seeded Breckinridge County Fighting Tigers took advantage.

  • GIRLS' 18TH DISTRICT...

    MUNFORDVILLE — With her team struggling to put away the third-seeded Caverna Lady Colonels on Friday night in the Girls’ 18th District Basketball Tournament’s championship game, Ivy Brown came up with an ingenious solution for the top-seeded LaRue County Lady Hawks: Do it herself.

    The junior wing outscored Caverna by herself in the second half, scoring 19 of her game-high 32 points in the final 15:03 as the Lady Hawks eventually pulled away, 61-40.

  • BOYS' 18TH DISTRICT...

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County senior point guard Kelton Ford watched his team blow one big lead Friday night. He didn’t let it happen again.

    Ford had five points and four assists in a 17-2 run to open the second half as the top-seeded Hawks pulled away from the second-seeded Caverna Colonels, 65-49 in the Boys’ 18th District Basketball Tournament championship game at Hart County.

    The pace was to John Hardin’s liking even though the score wasn’t for the first 11 minutes. The Bulldogs didn’t panic, staying with their up-tempo style and it paid big dividends.

    The seventh-ranked Bulldogs used a strong second quarter surge to take control on their way to an 83-74 victory over the North Hardin Trojans to win back-to-back Boys’ 17th District Tournament titles for the first time in the program’s history.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    The importance of guard play in the postseason can’t be underestimated. Good guard play is a must to reach the Boys’ 5th Region Tournament and it is a prerequisite to make the Sweet 16.

    That’s why the John Hardin Bulldogs, who are riding a 17-game winning streak, are the favorite heading into this week’s region tournament. Their guard play sets them apart from the rest of the pack.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Carlos Jones scored a game-high 24 points and Michael Dial added 12 as the North Hardin Christian Falcons cruised to a 70-37 win Thursday against Louisville Highlands Latin.

    Jones also had four rebounds and three assists for the Falcons (21-2). Dial added five rebounds and three assists.

  • 17TH DISTRICT BOYS'...
