Former Marion County Knights Head Coach Tim Davis, who currently is the head coach at Campbellsville, picked up his 500th win as a head coach on Saturday, Dec. 11, against Grayson County in the Cameron Irvin Classic at North Hardin High School by a score of 58-56. Davis becomes one of only 41 coaches in Kentucky that have achieved this milestone.
Davis coached at Marion County from the 1983-84 season until the 1994-95 season.  In his 12 seasons as the leader of the Knights, he accumulated a record of 215 wins and 137 losses for a win percentage of .611. Davis was awarded Coach of the Year in Kentucky at the end of the 1993 season, when he led the Knights to a 38-2 season record and the only state title in Marion County basketball history.
Current Marion County head coach Anthony Epps played under Davis for four seasons, and was one of the key players on the state championship team.
“It was great coaching against Coach Davis,” Epps said when the Knights and Eagles faced off Friday. “He is one of my mentors, and is like a father figure to me. I want to take things he has taught me and put them into my style as a head coach.”
The Knights and Eagles will face each other at least once more this season, with that matchup scheduled for Jan. 14.
