  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights lose by...

    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.

  • Not forgotten

    Yogi Ferrell, a forgotten player let go by the Brooklyn Nets, signed a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks in late January, seeking a chance at redemption. He had been demoted by the Nets to the NBA Development League, promoted, demoted, and then released during his time with the team. The Mavericks took a chance on this undrafted guard from Indiana University who holds the school record for most career assists. They decided to give him a chance.

    By Larry Vaught

    Makayla Epps will play her final game in Memorial Coliseum Thursday when Kentucky hosts Mississippi State. She could play again in Lexington if UK makes the Sweet Sixteen since Rupp Arena will be a host site for one NCAA Regional.
    Epps has had an illustrious career. Her 1,664 points ranks fifth in UK history and her 389 assists rank eighth all-time.
