  • BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood said he used Marion County’s final scrimmage Thursday against Bethlehem as a test gauge, trying to get an idea of what his team could do well at and what they needed work on as Wood brings along a new system.
    After two scrimmages, there’s still work to be done before things can really start coming together.
    “It’s going to be a process to figure out things,” Wood said. “I tried a little bit of everything to see where we were. We did some good things and we made some mistakes.”

    Bol Bol is a gifted 7-3 center who is ranked No. 1 at his position in the 2018 recruiting class. At one time he was thought to be a UK lean until he failed to make the USA team coached by John Calipari last season that included UK freshman P.J. Washington and UK signee Immanuel Quickley.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Irvin leading...

    With only three seniors and two juniors in the program, the Marion County Knights will showcase quite a bit of youth in the upcoming campaign. Despite the youth infusion for Marion County this season, Head Coach Montrelle Irvin hasn’t lessened his expectations for a team coming off a 15-15 campaign last year.
    “I’m still expecting big things out of them,” Irvin said, now in his seventh season at the helm for Marion County. “We’re going to be very scrappy, very fast.”

  • Vaught’s View: Richards'...

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky freshman center Nick Richards has probably been better than anticipated on offense but not as good as expected on defense — or at least not yet.
    Sporting News college basketball columnist Mike DeCourcy says that is not a bad thing so early in the season.
    “Offensively he is not a super skilled post guy. He is not Elton Brand. He does not have all those undo the defense moves. Can he catch it? Yes. Can he turn and score? Okay, you can work on that,” DeCourcy said before UK opened its season..

  • YOUTH LEAGUE FOOTBALL: Marion...

    While Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium is roughly three months away, another kind of Super Bowl was taking place at Dean Watts Park in Bardstown Saturday morning.

    “We played hard and we played great,” Marion County Head Coach Waylon Wiser said. “Washington County is a very tough team.”
