    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.

    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.

    LEWISPORT — In a 10-second span Tuesday night, Zeb Wilson went from being in Meade County coach Jerry Garris’ doghouse to being the hero for the Green Wave.

    With 29 seconds left and the second-seeded Green Wave down one against the third-seeded Hancock County Hornets in the late Boys’ 11th District Basketball Tournament’s late semifinal, the junior guard air-balled an ill-advised 3-pointer from the corner.

    Brandon Price and Kelton Ford don’t play on the same team. Their high schools are separated by nearly 20 miles. They aren’t even related so it would stand to reason that they’d be different in many ways.

    That’s not the case, though.

    There are two schools of thoughts when a team has beaten another twice already. The team that won the previous meetings has an edge because it has the confidence to do it again. For the losing team, it comes in with extra incentive to reverse the trend.

    The Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament has two semifinal matchups like this tonight. Top-seeded John Hardin swept the regular-season series with fourth-seeded Elizabethtown, while second-seeded North Hardin did the same against third-seeded Central Hardin.

    MUNFORDVILLE — Kelton “Putt-Putt” Ford’s surge ended Tuesday night, but Dustin Coulter’s recent upswing didn’t.

    Facing a 2-2 box defense with a chaser specifically on him, Ford’s couldn’t extend his streak of games with at least 17 points. However, Coulter picked up the slack as the top-seeded LaRue County Hawks pulled away from the fourth-seeded Hart County Raiders, 50-28, in the Boys’ 18th District Basketball Tournament’s opening semifinal at Hart County High School.

    MUNFORDVILLE — The LaRue County Lady Hawks avoided another letdown at the hands of the Hart County Lady Raiders on Tuesday night by not letting up.

    The top-seeded Lady Hawks opened the game with a 15-0 run before cruising by the fourth-seeded Lady Raiders, 54-11, in the opening semifinal of the Girls’ 18th District Basketball Tournament at Hart County High School.

    “I think that was the start we were looking for,” said LaRue County star junior wing Ivy Brown. “It was good.”

    Coaches like to say everything looks better when the ball is going in the basket and that certainly was the case for Central Hardin Lady Bruins on Tuesday night.

    The Lady Bruins shot only 32.9 percent from the field, but they still managed to pull away for a 64-44 victory over the Fort Knox Lady Eagles in the Girls’ 17th District Tournament quarterfinal at North Hardin’s Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

    The Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament has become repetitive. It’s been the same results for the last six years. Elizabethtown and North Hardin have met in the championship with the Lady Panthers winning each time.

    So is there any reason to think this year’s tournament is going to bring anything different? Not if the regular season is any indication.

    If the LaRue County Lady Hawks need any extra motivation heading into their postseason debut tonight in Munfordville, all they need to do is take a glimpse at their past.
