  • Boys basketball: Panthers escape...

    Marion County converted half of their shots, but Frankfort countered with a blistering 61.7 shooting percentage. In a game with 17 ties and 18 lead changes before Frankfort went on a 9-0 run in the fourth, the Panthers were able to escape the Roby Dome with a 74-69 win Saturday afternoon with hot shooting and a double-digit effort from all five starters.
    Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said he was disappointed in his team's performance despite their 27-55 (49 percent) shooting effort.

    Feb. 22, 1980: The day the United States Olympic hockey team did the unthinkable. Few thought it could be done. The United States, young, inexperienced, untested, was no match for the talented, powerful, battle-tested Soviet Union squad, they said. The American squad, however, had shocked all the pundits, critics, and detractors with their gutsy and determined play. They had been the surprise of the 1980 Olympics, tying with a talented Swedish squad before rattling off four straight wins en route to their clash with the Soviet Union.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    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.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights gearing...

    Before the 20th District Tournament gets underway for the Knights, Marion County still has some unfinished business in regular season play. Two more games remain before the district tournament tips off at Adair County High School.
    The first of those games comes on Thursday, when Marion County makes the journey to Beth Haven Christian School for an early evening match with the Beth Haven Bearcats. 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.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    After two tough losses against North Bullitt and Boyle County last week, Marion County sought to get back to winning and move past the two dismal performances with back-to-back games at Danville Monday evening and Caverna on Tuesday. 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. The final game of the regular season for Marion County will be rather bittersweet with Senior Night festivities scheduled to be held.

    Players often come to play basketball at Kentucky now to enhance their NBA Draft status. It’s something coach John Calipari sells to players as he points to the draft picks he’s had and how well many of them are doing in the NBA.
    A player can play himself into a higher spot in the draft — Eric Bledsoe, Jamal Murray, Trey Lyles for instance — that many ever imagined. However, because the spotlight is always on UK basketball, a player can hurt his draft stock with subpar play — remember Skal Labissiere.

    Next on the schedule for the Marion County Aquaknights is the regional tournament.
