  • 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.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    There is no mathematical formula to figuring out the favorite for the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament, but if there was, it sure would help.

    Ask the coaches involved in the tournament and you might get eight different answers. That explains how wide open the tournament is this season, which is a rarity. Most years coaches are able to pinpoint the favorite. Or at least, the co-favorites.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Coach Chris Corder hopes the North Hardin Lady Trojans can keep their relentless pressure defense going all game.

    They have to control the tempo in the Girls’ 5th Region Tournament’s opening game.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    There will be a sense a familiarity when the Boys’ 5th Region Tournament starts this week.

    Never is that more evident than the first round matchup between the John Hardin Bulldogs and the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles. Current John Hardin coach Mark Wells was an assistant for Artie Braden, who started the Bulldogs’ program and led them to their only region title in 2006.

  • 3RD REGION TOURNAMENTS: Green...

    Jerry Garris was happy to see his Meade County Green Wave’s quarterfinal opponent for the Boys’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament: Butler County.

    The Bears (11-19) and the Owensboro Apollo Eagles (14-14) are the only two teams with non-winning records in the eight-team field at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    That’s the good news. The bad news: If the Green Wave advance, they could meet the ninth-ranked Ohio County Eagles in Friday’s semifinals.
