    The Marion County Lady Knights rehashed old history with the Mercy Academy Jaguars on Feb. 19. The Lady Knights lost 56-51 on their own turf and the game marks the end of their regular season.

    “[I’m] very proud of the way we played all year overall,” Epps said. “We had some highs and some lows, but overall it was a good year. We got better at some areas that we struggled with early, but still have a high ceiling in the future.”

    The night began with cheers and screams in a packed Roby Dome, but ended with a stunned silence as the Knights fell to the visiting LaRue County Hawks on senior night. 

    After the tip, it was a bad beginning to the game for the Knights, who shot only 11 percent (three for 27) from the three-point line, as they let the Hawks open up a 10 point lead, 14-4. That would be the score going into the second period.
