  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    North Hardin Christian’s season came to an end in a 52-51 loss to Wesley Christian on Thursday in the Girls’ KCAA State Tournament quarterfinals at Asbury University.

    Senior Missy Schneider chipped in with nine points and 16 rebounds, and junior Bree Hammond scored eight.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT...

    Standing in John Hardin’s path to the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament championship is once again the LaRue County Hawks.

    The teams met last year in the region semifinals with John Hardin pulling out an 84-78 overtime victory. The Hawks led by 15 in the first half and held a 12-point advantage in the third quarter before the Bulldogs rallied to force overtime on Brandon Price’s jumper and then pulled away on their way to their second region championship.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT...

    One thing about Ruben Gosa is that opposing teams usually know the North Hardin guard is going to have the ball in his hands since he’s the team’s main offensive threat.

    Stopping the 6-foot senior can be something altogether different.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    Spurred by sensational sophomore Morgan Turner, the Meade County Lady Waves cleared a big obstacle Thursday night.

    Turner scored a game-high 28 points and had 13 rebounds to lead the Lady Waves to a 64-56 win over Owensboro in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    “It was just a super performance,” Meade County coach Josh Hurt said of Turner. “She really put us on her back early and made some big plays late. She was a dominant player and she really was able to shine on a big stage.”

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG These slow starts are quickly getting on the nerves of Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd.

    For the second straight postseason tournament game Thursday night, Mudd’s Lady Panthers had a hard time getting in a groove. But much like it did in Saturday’s win over North Hardin in the 17th District Tournament final, a sluggish beginning mattered little.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    Morgan Turner believes the Meade County Lady Waves have what it takes to be playing in Bowling Green in two weeks.

    But if the Lady Waves want to make it to Western Kentucky University’s Diddle Arena – the site of the girls’ state tournament – they must first take care of business in the 3rd Region Basketball Tournament at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    Meade County’s road to State begins tonight at 7 as it faces the Owensboro Lady Devils in the tournament quarterfinals.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd has heard all this week that his Lady Panthers are a shoo-in to meet the state’s top-ranked team in the semifinals of the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament on Sunday afternoon in Greensburg.

    He’s not buying any of the hype.

    If the Lady Panthers (22-7) don’t play well at 6 tonight against the Caverna Lady Colonels (16-14) at Green County, it could lead to a premature end to their season.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG North Hardin’s inability to close out a game helped close out the Lady Trojans’ solid season Wednesday night.

    And the girl who was worried she had a broken foot helped break North Hardin’s heart.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG With her team needing someone to take the pressure off stars Ivy Brown and Alexis Brewer on Wednesday night, Haley Holt stepped up and delivered.

    The LaRue County senior forward scored all 11 of her points in the final 13 minutes as the 18th District Tournament champion Lady Hawks exacted a bit of revenge by holding off the 20th District runner-up Adair County Lady Indians, 60-57 in the second quarterfinal of the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament at Green County.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    The North Hardin Lady Trojans have gone from dealing with one future NCAA Division-I post player in the 17th District final Saturday night to having to match up with another D-I player at 6 tonight as they take on senior center Cierra Drake and the Nelson County Lady Cardinals in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at Green County.
