  • BOYS' 3RD REGION BASKETBALL...

    When the Meade County Green Wave were paired with the Butler County Bears during last week’s draw for the Boys’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament, many people predicted the Green Wave to be a shoo-in to make it to Saturday’s semifinals.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    After Wednesday night’s first Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinal, Kelton Ford thinks he has put one myth to rest.

    The scouting report on the LaRue County junior guard might need to include one more item: just as deadly from the outside as he is driving to the hoop – especially when you don’t guard him tightly like the Taylor County Cardinals.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs tried a couple new wrinkles to speed up the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles, but in the end, they turned to their defensive staples to do the job.

    The Bulldogs used a 1-3-1 in the first quarter and their full-court pressure wasn’t effective at first either until they went back to their man-to-man defense. The move paid off as the Eagles weren’t able to play at the tempo they wanted.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    The LaRue County Hawks are no strangers to the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament, and they are hoping that experience pays off this season.

    The Hawks, who have won four consecutive 18th District Tournaments, are making their sixth consecutive appearance. Several players have made multiple appearances during this stretch and that could play in LaRue County’s favor.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    If anyone knows how effective the matchup zone Bardstown Bethlehem coach Artie Braden employs, it’s former Braden assistant and current John Hardin coach Mark Wells. He saw it first hand for six years.

    Although Wells is familiar with the zone, that doesn’t mean he’s not concerned with designing a scheme to score against it. The Eagles are giving up just 47.2 points a game and they have held 15 opponents to 50 or fewer points. Only three teams have scored more than 60 points against the Eagles.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    OWENSBOROJosh Hurt and the Meade County Lady Waves could only watch as shot after shot clanged off the rim Tuesday night.

    The one thing that had carried them late in the regular season and through the 11th District Tournament failed them in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals.

    Meade County struggled from the field, going 15-of-46 overall as Muhlenberg County pulled away for a 60-41 win at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Despite the slow-moving nature of their Girls’ 5th Region Tournament quarterfinal Tuesday night against the Washington County Commanderettes, the only breaks Erin Boley and the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers needed were fast ones.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    Maya Luney never thought she’d be thrust into a starting role the way she was last season.

    But it was something the Meade County junior had worked for and wasn’t about to turn the opportunity down.

    When then-senior Scarlett Powers suffered a stress fracture in her right foot and missed 15 games, Luney suddenly found herself placed in the starting role she had always coveted.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Throughout the first half, North Hardin coach Chris Corder’s face turned as red as the Nelson County Lady Cardinals’ uniform stripes.

    With his team down one at halftime, he could’ve chewed out players.

    He could’ve displayed his frustrations after the Lady Trojans committed more turnovers than they had points or even used an emotional plea.

    Instead, he reminded his team over and over to go back and do what it does best.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers had their way with the Washington County Commanderettes during the regular season, but Coach Tim Mudd has cautioned his team it won’t be as easy this time around.

    Elizabethtown (24-5) plays Washington County (12-15) at 6 tonight in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at Central Hardin High School. The Lady Panthers topped Washington County, 73-32 on Jan. 26. Mudd said his team must be in the right frame of mind in order to keep its season alive.
