  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Those who refuse to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

    If the old adage is indeed true, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins (6-7 overall, 1-1 17th District) could be in for a long evening at as they renew their district rivalry with the highly touted Elizabethtown Lady Panthers (13-1, 3-0) at 7:30 tonight.

    When the teams met a little less than three weeks ago, the host Lady Panthers handed Central Hardin a 91-34 setback – the biggest blowout in the teams’ long history.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The North Hardin Lady Trojans used some bulletin-board fodder to keep their winning streak intact against the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Wednesday night.

    Sophomore forward Chanel Roberts overcame a minor knee injury to total game-highs of 18 points and 15 rebounds to lead the homestanding Lady Trojans to a 51-34 win over their 17th District rivals at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    You’d think Elizabethtown coach James Haire would’ve been thrilled with a 30-point blowout win over a 17th District rival.

    Not so much.

    He still can’t figure out why his Panthers aren’t on top of their game early on.

    Senior center Mitchell Henry finished with a double-double (a season-high 33 points and 16 rebounds) and three other Elizabethtown players reached double figures as the Panthers dropped the visiting Fort Knox Eagles, 91-61 on Tuesday night.

    LaRue County sophomore guard Kelton Ford hit four 3-pointers and scored 24 points to lead the host Hawks to their fifth straight win in a 63-58 victory over 5th Region rival Campbellsville on Tuesday.

    Ford had five rebounds and three assists for the Hawks (9-3), while junior guard Kyle Sheeran chipped in with 16 points, three assists and one steal.

    Senior forward Ryan Whitlock added eight points, six rebounds and two steals, and senior guard Dylan Parr had eight points.

    The feeling in Bulldog Gym was drastically different Tuesday compared to Dec. 4, a day following the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs’ 47-23 loss at 17th District rival Elizabethtown.

    In a month’s span since that setback, the Lady Bulldogs have quietly built up some momentum. They’ve won 9-of-10 and seven straight heading into tonight’s road showdown with the North Hardin Lady Trojans.

    Tuesday night’s pivotal 17th District clash matched strength against strength – North Hardin’s power inside game against Central Hardin’s perimeter attack.

    Both teams did what they do best, but the Trojans size advantage proved to be too much. Senior Chris Sterusky and junior Adam Hendrix combined for 44 points – all inside the 3-point arc – to offset 12 Central Hardin 3-pointers and post a 72-65 victory at Bruin Gym.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    After losing four of their first seven games, the North Hardin Trojans began to turn things around. They’ve won four of their last five entering tonight’s showdown at Central Hardin.

    The Trojans (7-6 overall) played seven games during the Christmas break. They went 2-2 in the Whitaker Bank/Fort Harrod Holiday Classic at Mercer County and 2-1 in the Citizens Bank/Campbellsville University Classic at Campbellsville High School.

    James Haire planned Elizabethtown’s holiday schedule with a purpose.

    With such a young team, the Panthers’ head coach decided he’d give them a long Christmas break lay-off for a reason.

    They needed time to gel.

    Since they have only one returning starter (senior Mitchell Henry) from last year and a new starting nucleus, he decided he’d find a way for players to bond.

    Central Hardin senior guard Jordan Daniel scored a career-high 33 points, but it wasn’t enough as the visiting Lady Bruins fell to 5th Region rival Hart County, 79-71 on Monday night.

    Senior forward Kristina Krupinski added 19 points, while senior guard Alysse Bishop had nine.

    Daniel’s previous career best was 31 points against 17th District rival John Hardin on Dec. 13.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK:...

    LOUISVILLE Terrence Jones is many things, but one thing the Kentucky freshman isn’t is consistent from the field.

    The 6-foot-8, 244-pound forward has shot better than 50 percent from the field in consecutive games just once. So even though he made 9-of-12 shots Tuesday against Coppin State, Jones was probably due to have a shooting clunker Friday in the Wildcats’ 78-63 win at rival Louisville.
