  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers don’t have much history with the Green County Lady Dragons, while the North Hardin Lady Trojans have plenty of history – albeit not much positive for the local team – with the Marion County Lady Knights.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    North Hardin’s season could be summed up Thursday night in the Trojans’ 63-57 loss to the defending champion Bardstown Tigers in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at Central Hardin’s Bruin Gym.

    The Trojans had spurts where they played well and looked capable of pulling out a win, but they had too many stretches where they struggled to score where turnovers. They also failed to keep the Tigers off the offensive glass at times which cost them dearly.

    The North Hardin Trojans realize what they did in the regular season has little to do with what will happen in the postseason.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.
