  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights lose by two on senior night

    The Knights, down 10-0 within the first four minutes against LaRue County Friday night, looked out of sync and overwhelmed. However, they didn’t give up, keeping it close and eventually tying the game at 55 apiece with 35.9 seconds left.
    LaRue County got one more break than the Knights in the thriller, squeaking out a 57-55 win and putting a damper on Marion County's Senior Night, where seniors Jaren Epps, Isaac Lanham and Lamarcus Bell were honored.

    Marion County converted half of their shots, but Frankfort countered with a blistering 61.7 shooting percentage.

    Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said he was disappointed in his team's performance despite their 27-55 (49 percent) shooting effort.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights take down Metcalfe

    Trailing at half and trying to shrug off a sluggish start, the Lady Knights needed all their energy, resolve and talent to mount a comeback.
    "We discussed at the half what we needed to do, which was step it up defensively," Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills said. "The girls responded."
    Marion County did just that, turning a two-point halftime deficit into a 56-45 win at Metcalfe County Feb. 6, overcoming not just a sluggish night, but a career night from MacKenzie Coleman - the Lady Hornet's leading scorer put up 31 points.

Tip-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Beth Haven will be coming off a game on Feb. 14 against a struggling Shawnee Golden Eagles squad that has won only one game this season.

The Lady Knights (17-10) get a few days of rest before they wrap up the regular season at 6 p.m., Friday, against the LaRue County Hawks at the Roby Dome.
