  • May be a little early

    Finally. Jessica and I have been to our first competitive basketball games of the season, and it could not have come soon enough. You see, we have gotten so used to having a game to report on during football season, that during that span between football and basketball we were a bit lost. It's a big change when you go from having a regular game to report on to having to find information. I think we handled the transition just fine, but we sure are glad that basketball has arrived.

  • Knights fall short in opening scrimmage

    The Marion County Knights basketball team headed to Campbellsville University for their first preseason scrimmage against Clinton County Friday. The Bulldogs finished 24-7 last year, and captured the 16th District title before falling in the opening game of the fourth region tournament to Glasgow in overtime. With a majority of their starting lineup returning, the Bulldogs came out and pressured Marion County into some mistakes, but later in the scrimmage the Knights got back on track.

  • Lady Knights handle Owensboro Catholic

    The Marion County Lady Knights basketball team traveled to Bullitt East High School Saturday morning to take part in the Rick Bolus Shootout. The Lady Knights took on Owensboro Catholic in the opening game of the second day of the shootout. Marion County used three players in double figures to easily control the Lady Aces despite an impressive showing by Rebecca Greenwell. Greenwell, who will most likely be a leading candidate for Kentucky's Miss Basketball award, poured in 40 of her teams 68 points in the game, and only one other Lady Aces player was in double figures.

  • Lady Knights top preseason poll
