  • Making moves

    The Golden State Warriors won their second title in three years last month. With all the confetti swept and all the celebrations complete, now comes the wildest and most interesting period of time in the NBA outside of the regular and postseason: free agency. Over the next several weeks and months, players will leave behind fan bases that cheered them on so loyally, deals will be made that might just give a team a missing piece needed to make a run at the NBA title and moves made will set the stage for next season, which is roughly only four months away.

    Kevin Knox Sr. doesn’t mind talking basketball when it comes to his son, Kevin Knox Jr. He’s one of the top incoming players for Kentucky coach John Calipari.
    But he does a different type of talking with his long-time friend, Kentucky football recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow. He’s giving him Florida football recruiting tips.
    “Vince is one of the best recruiters in the nation, but I can give him some insights and a few names to recruit around where we live (Tampa),” Knox said.

    The 2017 Marion County Knights baseball team's magical run in the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Tournament came to an end Friday with a 5-2 loss to Simon Kenton. In reflecting on what this team accomplished during the season, we should first reflect on some of the back-story.

  • The City of Champions  

    The confetti falling on the court, the champagne raining down in the locker room, and the shiny trophy now in their hands, Golden State finally banished the haunting memories of last year's NBA Finals. The disaster that befell them then, blowing a 3-1 lead, were transformed into a distant memory. Only a win in the NBA Finals could do such a thing and set such a stage. 
    Kevin Durant wowed fans, Steph Curry dished and splashed and Golden State defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 on June 12 to win the Finals in five games.

    By Larry Vaught

    It would have been easy to make a phone call, send a text or make a post on social media to announce her verbal commitment to the Kentucky basketball program.
    Junior Emma King of Lincoln County didn’t want to do that. She thought it would be more “special” for everyone if she went to Lexington to tell coach Matthew Mitchell face to face.

  • Cleveland is down but not out

    The Golden State Warriors are perfect no more. 
    Cleveland caught fire from three-point range in Game 4 last Friday, a host of Cavs poured in points, stellar play, tenacious effort and downright fire in the belly, holding off the Warriors' celebrations plans for another game in a 137-116 win that had it all. 
    A series lacking any zeal or excitement suddenly got jolted with some drama, flare and a stunning show of dominance from the Cavs. Those Cleveland Cavaliers, who seemed down and overwhelmed, aren't out just quite yet.

    It was almost 25 years ago that Kevin Young became the first person to run the 400-meter hurdles in less than 47 seconds. His time of 46.78 seconds set a world record — and 25 years later it still stands.
    Young, who won the gold medal in the 1992 Olympics while breaking the record set by Edwin Moses, was at the Maximum Velocity Track & Field Camp at Centre College in Danville last week sharing his expertise with youngsters from Kentucky and other states.
