    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.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: North uses...

    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.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Injuries...

    LOUISVILLE The Louisville Cardinals have one of the deepest teams in the Big East Conference, but injuries are starting to leave them short on bodies and with short bodies.

    After 6-foot-8 sophomore forward Rakeem Buckles suffered a spiral fracture Thursday, coach Rick Pitino went with a noticeably smaller lineup in Friday’s 78-63 loss to the visiting Kentucky Wildcats. The Cardinals started only one player taller than 6-4, while Kentucky coach John Calipari countered with a lineup featuring only one starter shorter than 6-4.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL OPINION: That...

    LOUISVILLE Sometimes it’s hard to trust the words coming out of Rick Pitino’s mouth.

    OK, OK, I’ll admit sometimes is probably the wrong word. Probably should have just deleted sometimes and started with it’s.

    However, it didn’t take Pitino long after he reached the podium Friday afternoon to speak the truth after his Cardinals were walloped by John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats, 78-63.

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson hit 4-of-7 3-pointers en route to a team-high 16 points and eighth-grade forward Morgan Turner added 13 points and team highs in rebounds (seven) and assists as the visiting Meade County Lady Waves topped the Edmonson County Lady Cats, 62-57 in a battle of 3rd Region girls’ basketball rivals Friday.

    Senior forward Kristin Benton added 13 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals for the Lady Waves (2-9).
