  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood knows his team is struggling, having lost seven of the last nine games.
    “We’re in a funk,” he said. “We’ve got to get out of this slump. If you don’t show up you’re going to lose. Teams won’t give it to you just because you show up in their gym. We’re just out of it right now but I’d rather it be now than later. Something good will happen once we hit our stride. We’ve had good practices and the effort is there, but we’ve lost something and need to find it.”

  • Vaught’s views: Father hopes UK...

    Terry Barker knows he can’t control how University of Kentucky fans will remember his son, Drew Barker. He just hopes a couple of off-field incidents during his son’s freshman year will not distort what fans remember about him now that he decided to transfer after spending four years at UK.
    “I hope a couple of off-field incidents will not define his legacy at Kentucky,” Terry Barker said. “People who know Drew know both of those incidents were not ones where Drew meant any harm.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights fall to...

    Marion County was on the rally again, surging late and nearly grabbing the lead. The Knights almost orchestrated a comeback to be remembered.
    South Oldham escaped with a 66-61 win over Marion County on Dec. 22 in the Twin Lakes Classic. Lez Means almost put the Knights on top but was called for a charge driving to the basket with under a minute left.
    "We came out slow and picked it up in the second half but it was too big of a hole to overcome," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said.

  • 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.
