  • 11TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    If Bryce Garris felt a little bit like Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day, the Meade County senior guard can expect to see a lot more of his shadow tonight.

    In Tuesday’s second semifinal of the Boys’ 11th District Basketball Tournament in Lewisport, third-seeded Hancock County used a box-and-chaser to keep Garris in check.

    It worked to a degree as Garris was limited to just 10 field-goal attempts – more than four fewer than his average.

  • 18TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    The LaRue County Hawks keep winning 18th District Tournament titles. The Caverna Colonels would like to end their drought.

    When the teams clash at 8:30 tonight in the championship game at Hart County High School, the top-seeded Hawks (19-7) will look to become the first district team to win five straight titles. LaRue County is making its seventh straight final appearance (also a district boys’ record) and its 33rd appearance overall since its inaugural season in 1958-59. The Hawks have been the district champion 18 times and the runner-up 14 times.

  • 11TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    LEWISPORT — On the bus ride from Brandenburg on Thursday night, Maya Luney was a nervous wreck.

    Tasked with guarding one of the state’s best players in Hancock County star senior Beth Rates, the Meade County senior post wasn’t sure how the Lady Waves would execute the game plan drawn up by longtime coach Josh Hurt.

    Luney wasn’t optimistic the Lady Waves would be able to stop Rates, who had scored 31 points against them earlier this season.

  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers didn’t play to their potential Thursday night. But even an off game from the ninth-ranked Lady Panthers was still too much for the Central Hardin Lady Bruins.

    Top-seeded Elizabethtown shot better than 50 percent from the field and forced Central Hardin into 31 turnovers as it cruised past the fourth-seeded Lady Bruins, 69-28 in the Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament’s opening semifinal at Ron Bevars Gymnasium in Radcliff.

  • 17TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    What once looked like another Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament semifinal blowout turned into a nail-biter.

    Once owning leads of 11 points in the second quarter, 13 points in the third and nine points in the fourth over the third-seeded John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Thursday night, the second-seeded and tournament host North Hardin Lady Trojans had to get a pair of stops in the final 10 seconds to hold on, 40-37.

    For the last three seasons, Beth Rates has been a thorn in the side of Meade County coach Josh Hurt.

    While he has enjoyed watching the Hancock County senior center transform into the future NCAA Division-I player she is, Hurt can’t wait till Rates is no longer torturing his Lady Waves.

  • 18TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    Following Tuesday night’s 54-11 win over the fourth-seeded Hart County Raiders in the Girls’ 18th District Basketball Tournament’s early semifinal in Munfordville, standout LaRue County junior wing Ivy Brown said her top-seeded Lady Hawks wouldn’t breathe easier until they were cutting down the nets inside of the Hart County High School gym following Friday night’s championship game.

    It wasn’t a sentiment just of her own thought process.

  • 17TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    The early game tonight at Ron Bevars Gymnasium appears to be a formality. The nightcap looks like anything but.

    When the second-seeded North Hardin Lady Trojans (23-6) take on the third-seeded John Hardin Lady Bulldogs (22-7) in today’s 8 p.m. semifinal of the Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament, there is history on the line for both teams.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    North Hardin’s theme should be start fast and finish strong. It not only describes the Trojans’ season, but how they played Wednesday night in the second semifinal of the Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament.

    The Trojans overwhelmed the Central Hardin Bruins with an 18-2 run to start the game, and after seeing their lead shrink to two, they pulled away for a 60-53 victory at John Hardin’s Dawg Pound.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    When Elizabethtown junior guard Ja’Von Cotton released a 3-pointer in the final seconds, John Hardin sophomore guard Elijah Smith admitted he had a bad feeling.

    When the ball bounced off the rim, John Hardin senior point guard Brandon Price didn’t feel a sense of relief, but his first thought was to knock the ball away so the Panthers couldn’t get another chance.
