  • One and not done

    In 2005, the NBA had a problem on its hands.
    A steady stream of high school players were jumping into the NBA, only to flame out and become a bust. This was bad for the game. Players with potential were spoiling their chance at stardom and the league was losing talented players who just weren’t ready for the pro game.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Dailyn Spalding had 13 points and four Lady Knights pulled down four rebounds to end the regular season with a 52-30 win over the Frederick Douglass Broncos on Thursday at the Roby Dome on Senior Night.
    “We really had balanced scoring and we handled the ball well,” Coach Kelly Wood said. “We kept a lead for most of the game. We didn’t give anything back.”
    Jayla Cowherd, Leah Hazelwood, Carrington McKay and Tanika Williams all hauled in four rebounds. Katie Mattingly and Spalding had three rebounds.

  • Vaught’s Views: New book shares...

    By Larry Vaught

    Forty years ago Kentucky had a dominating basketball season that ended with UK beating Duke in the national championship game behind  an unbelievable 41-point performance by Jack “Goose” Givens.
    He was 18-for-27 from the field but also had eight rebounds — second best on the team — and two assists in the 94-88 win. But what many forget is that Rick Robey also had a fantastic game with 20 points on 8-for-11 shooting and 11 rebounds.

  • History makers

    The 2017 Marion County High School baseball team was recognized during Marion County’s boy/girl doubleheader against Washington County on Feb. 6. The team won the first regional title in program history and advanced to the state tournament’s semifinals. Marion County finished last season with a 28-7 record.

    Third time is the charm. At least, that’s what the Knights are hoping for.
    With a spot in the district title game and regional tournament on the line, Marion County and Adair County square off for the third time this season in the 20th District Tournament at Campbellsville High School. The two squads play at 7 p.m., Feb. 21.

Some stories transcend sports itself, bringing light to the human condition. Some stories captivate us with stellar achievements. Some stores are remembered well after they’ve happened due to their significance.
