  • Lancers win back-to-back titles

    Elton Scott was a game changer three times in the final seven minutes for the Lebanon Lancers in the Kentucky Basketball Developmental League championship game on Saturday at the Roby Dome.

    Lucky for the Lancers, he atoned for a late technical foul after slamming the ball on the court just as the Lancers lost the lead they held all game.

    After leading a tight game for nearly three-and-a-half quarters, the Lancers slipped and the River City Gamblers went up 80-79 with 7:20 to play. The lead would grow to six points after Scott's technical.

  • Disc golf tourney expands

    The second annual Lebanon Disc Golf Open expanded its field to over twice as many participants from last year, with 66 total players trying to navigate the technically challenging course. When the dust settled after two rounds of play, Will Schusterick emerged as the open division champion. After two rounds he was 19 under par, edging course designer David Greenwell by four strokes (15 under par).

  • Lancers miss the mark

    A last second three clanged off the rim, securing a 92-89 victory for the Southern Ohio Generals.

    It's one of several missed opportunities for the Lebanon Lancers in the final three minutes of their game Saturday night at the Roby Dome.

    Marlis Scott's contested three would have knotted the game at 91-91 and forced overtime but it was just one shot in a string of many that just wouldn't fall.

    Playing from behind most of the game, the Lancers finally caught up to the Generals with three minutes to play in a physical match up.
