  • Finding a solution

    After giving up 148 points to lose their ninth game in 12 outings back on Jan. 23, the Cleveland Cavaliers held a team meeting to discuss the team’s recent struggles. The Boston Celtics also held their own team meeting on Jan. 22 to discuss their own struggles as well. There was frustration expressed at poor play and a desire to move past the struggles.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood drew a Clint Eastwood reference to describe Marion County’s play thus far this season.
    “Good, bad and ugly,” Wood said. “We’ve been a little bit of all three but most teams are. We’re young, though. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon so we got to finish strong. That’s what we got ahead of us. The team gets along great. They’re such great kids.”

  • Vaught’s Views: UK's...

    By Larry Vaught

    Now that Zion Williamson is definitely not coming to Kentucky, maybe it’s time to focus more on the three players that UK coach John Calipari has already signed in his 2018 recruiting class.
    Not only did UK not get Williamson, he went to Duke to give the Blue Devils the top three players in the 2018 recruiting class. However, FoxSports/247Sports recruiting analyst Evan Daniels says Kentucky fans are going to like Tyler Herro, Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickley. ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale already does.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Means posts...

    Marion County had been off the court since Jan. 9 due to wintry weather that dumped nearly a half-foot of snow across Central Kentucky last week. After seeing four games get cancelled due to the treacherous weather, the Knights finally got back on the court Saturday against Campbellsville.
    Over five minutes into the game, Campbellsville and Marion County had combined for a mere seven points. Time for Lez Means to provide a spark to the sluggish Knight offense.

  • Where has the time gone?

    Has it really been 12 years since Vince Young raced across the goal line in the BCS National Championship and dethroned the USC Trojans? Has a whole decade passed since Nick Saban took the reins at Alabama and nearly six years since the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team won the national championship in New Orleans?

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Back on the court after a two-week hiatus due to the winter weather, the Lady Knights had a chance to end a three-game losing streak and grab an important district win.
    Needing to withstand a tough Campbellsville squad to do both, Marion County came away with a 45-40 win over the Lady Eagles in what Marion County Head Coach Kelly Wood said wasn’t the prettiest win.
    “It wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win,” he said. “It was good to get a win. I was happy with the effort. We competed today and we kept fighting.”
