  • There was no quit

    A comeback is sport’s most prime example of overcoming the odds. A team faces a sizeable deficit with limited time to overcome it. Hope for a win dwindles by the second. Every pass, every shot, every swing takes on heightened importance, with the trajectory of the game resting on each.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Marion County looked to be in firm control, holding a double-digit lead and 180 seconds away from victory. Spencer County rallied furiously and forced overtime, eventually coming away with a 68-62 overtime victory on Friday in both team’s final game of the Bardstown Holiday Classic.
    The Lady Bears hit two threes in their rally. Alyssa Howie had 18 points, Lauren Lambdin scored 16 and Amie Conley had 12.

  • Vaught’s Views: New WKYT-TV...

    By Larry Vaught

    Making a move to Lexington to work for WKYT-TV was an easy decision for sports anchor Kailey Mizelle.
    “I think it is a great sports town with Kentucky football, and of course Kentucky basketball, along with high school sports, horse racing. It’s really a central location to a lot of great sports teams and things, and the fans are so passionate about sports,” said Mizelle. “So I at least kind of knew what I was getting into when I came here.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Bulldogs end...

    Marion County saw their early lead wither away as Jackson Harlan and his supporting cast heated up and started hitting shots. What looked to be another runaway victory became a disappointing performance for the Knights.
    Harlan racked up 29 points and the Knights’ five-game win streak was halted in a 71-65 loss to the Clinton County Bulldogs in the Twin Lakes Holiday Classic at Clinton County High School on Dec. 20.

  • The shots you never take

    The most difficult step is the first step.
    The first step signifies the start of something new. The unfamiliarity that comes with difference and change can be daunting. In fact, it might be so daunting that people decide against doing something different, decide against change and stay in the so-called “comfort zone.” Sure, the comfort zone is comfortable. Someone can keep doing what they have been doing without the possibility of failure, discomfort or difficulty.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Marion County had scrapped and clawed out a lead against a tough Anderson County squad. The Lady Bearcats eventually became too much for the Lady Knights to handle, using a second-half surge to defeat Marion County 59-39 on Dec. 20 in the Bardstown Holiday Classic.

  • Vaught’s Views: How do media...

    By Larry Vaught

    Friday could be the best day, worst day or somewhere in between for University of Kentucky fans.
    If the Cats beat Louisville in basketball in Rupp Arena — something coach John Calipari’s team is expected to — then UK fans are going to be happy. If the Cats beat Northwestern in Nashville in the Music City Bowl — something coach Mark Stoops’ team is not expected to do — then UK fans will be giddy.
    But what if UK wins just one game — or none? That won’t make for a happy day.
