    Based on how they’re feeling, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers admittedly played Thursday night like the recent weather – lousy.

    Although they weren’t at their best, they were easily able to overpower the young and struggling Central Hardin Lady Bruins, 63-18 on Terry Buckles Court to run their winning streak against area teams to 47.

    Tim Mudd is a big fan of Christmas tournaments for two reasons.

    The veteran Elizabethtown Lady Panthers coach can spend more time picking up on things his team needs to improve on. And he likes the fact the Lady Panthers get to face some tough competition.

    Elizabethtown went 4-3 over Christmas break, going 1-2 in the Republic Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic and 3-1 in the Staxx BBQ Capital City Showdown at Franklin County.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The North Hardin Trojans watched their lead disappear, but they regained their composure to make sure they didn’t let a win slip away.

    The Trojans built a 13-point lead early in the third quarter before the Central Hardin Bruins came roaring back behind the play of senior guard Troy Squires to take their first lead of the game in the fourth quarter. The Bruins led 54-51 with less than 2 minutes after a Squires layup.

    The race for the Boys’ 17th District Tournament’s top spot begins to get a lot more interesting, starting with North Hardin traveling to Central Hardin tonight.

    In a span of 31 days, there are 15 district games. Central Hardin has four straight to open January and six of its next nine are against district foes. North Hardin plays three consecutive and six of its next eight are against district competition. Four of Elizabethtown’s next five are district games. And John Hardin has a stretch where five of its eight games are district contests.

    The 17th District boys’ basketball coaches don’t like to think about seeding for the upcoming postseason tournament too early.

    But with a bunch of a district games in a short period – 15 in the next 31 days – coaches understand how important each and every game is.

    “We’ve talked about seeding,” North Hardin coach Ron Bevars said. “Usually the higher seed you are the better. If you can stay away from the best team, you usually have a good shot. Seeding is important.”

    Alex Humes’ start to his senior bowling season with the John Hardin Bulldogs got off to a hot start – figuratively and quite literally.

    Humes, also one of the state’s best horseshoe pitchers, burned his right (rolling) hand in a grease fire at his house. The freak accident didn’t slow him down at the alley though.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP:...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs ended their losing skid – even with senior point guard Brandon Price suffering an ankle injury and playing limited minutes.
