  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Eagles...

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — With a few minutes still left to play, the Campbellsville bench started clapping and jumping up and down in celebration. The moment the final buzzer sounded, the Campbellsville bench and student section spilled onto the court to celebrate.
    Finally, to wrap up a stellar night for the Lady Eagles, Campbellsville Athletic Director Tim Davis presented the district championship trophy to the Lady Eagles after they defeated Marion County 51-41 Friday night, setting off one last celebration before the district champions cut down the nets.

  • Vaught’s Views: Losing record...

    By Larry Vaught

    Vic Schaefer thought Mississippi State had a good defensive plan to stop Maci Morris, Kentucky’s leading scorer. He felt like the Bulldogs, who finished Southeastern Conference play unbeaten and are considered the team to beat for the national title, made Morris work for any shot she got.
    Yet in Sunday’s regular-season final, Morris still went 8-for-15 from the field and had 22 points for Kentucky. It was her sixth straight game with 20 or more points, something no other UK player had ever done.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights blow...

    Grand finale indeed.
    On Senior Night Thursday, Marion County sent its senior out in the best way possible, crushing the Beth Haven Bearcats 83-31.
    Next stop? Adair County in the district tournament. Win and you live. Lose and you’re done.
    Senior Lez Means scored 17 points and hit 3-6 threes. Senior Luke Thomas had 10 points and tied a career-high with five steals and fellow senior Connor Higdon had four points and rebounds.

  • One and not done

    In 2005, the NBA had a problem on its hands.
    A steady stream of high school players were jumping into the NBA, only to flame out and become a bust. This was bad for the game. Players with potential were spoiling their chance at stardom and the league was losing talented players who just weren’t ready for the pro game.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Dailyn Spalding had 13 points and four Lady Knights pulled down four rebounds to end the regular season with a 52-30 win over the Frederick Douglass Broncos on Thursday at the Roby Dome on Senior Night.
    “We really had balanced scoring and we handled the ball well,” Coach Kelly Wood said. “We kept a lead for most of the game. We didn’t give anything back.”
    Jayla Cowherd, Leah Hazelwood, Carrington McKay and Tanika Williams all hauled in four rebounds. Katie Mattingly and Spalding had three rebounds.

  • Vaught’s Views: New book shares...

    By Larry Vaught

    Forty years ago Kentucky had a dominating basketball season that ended with UK beating Duke in the national championship game behind  an unbelievable 41-point performance by Jack “Goose” Givens.
    He was 18-for-27 from the field but also had eight rebounds — second best on the team — and two assists in the 94-88 win. But what many forget is that Rick Robey also had a fantastic game with 20 points on 8-for-11 shooting and 11 rebounds.
