  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights'...

    The Knights haven’t been able to find a winning formula against the Taylor County Cardinals this season, and it cost them dearly this time. 
    Taylor County shot 57.6 percent from the field and TreVon Smith scored 17 of his game-high 35 points in the first half as the Cardinals coasted to a 95-73 win Thursday evening in the 20th District Tournament. It was Marion County’s third loss to Taylor County, and ended the Knights’ season. 

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Epps leaving...

    Makayla Epps has been around the sport of basketball her entire life. It's taken her on quite the journey. She helped the Marion County Lady Knights win the state championship in 2013, and she's become the face of University of Kentucky women's basketball.
    She's loved every moment of it.
    "I thank God and my coaches that have pushed me to become a better player,” Epps said. “I've always had a love of basketball. The fans make it fun. The good players, competition make it fun. So many different things make it fun."

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights lose by...

    The Knights, down 10-0 within the first four minutes against LaRue County Friday night, looked out of sync and overwhelmed. However, they didn’t give up, keeping it close and eventually tying the game at 55 apiece with 35.9 seconds left.

  • Not forgotten

    Yogi Ferrell, a forgotten player let go by the Brooklyn Nets, signed a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks in late January, seeking a chance at redemption. He had been demoted by the Nets to the NBA Development League, promoted, demoted, and then released during his time with the team. The Mavericks took a chance on this undrafted guard from Indiana University who holds the school record for most career assists. They decided to give him a chance.
