  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Banshees notch biggest win total in more than a decade

    Bethlehem’s girls finished the regular season on a high note, limiting Holy Cross to eight second-half points and coming from behind Friday for a 51-32 win.

    “I told them at halftime to forget the scouting report and to get back on the court, toughen up, turn up the defense, drive to the basket and finish,” coach Jason Clark said. “They responded.”

    The Banshees trailed 24-22 at the half.

  • Cole, Sims are mainstays at the scorer’s table

    When officials make an obvious incorrect call in a basketball game, they are quickly the center of attention and the recipient of a cascade of boos from the stands.

    Likewise, when the clock keeper inadvertently gives points to the visiting team after a basket by the home team, the screaming and yelling and finger-pointing at the scoreboard continues until it is corrected.

    The bookkeeper, however, typically works in anonymity, rarely noticed, but performing an important task nonetheless.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: NC girls top Franklin Co., B’town girls rout Adair

    Nelson County’s girls topped visiting Franklin County 70-61 on Tuesday behind a 29-point effort by Marly Walls, lifting the Cardinals to a third straight win and their sixth in the past seven outings.

    The Cardinals took command in the second half, turning an eight-point halftime lead into a 17-point margin by the end of three quarters, improving to 17-11 on the year in advance of their home matchup Thursday against John Hardin in the regular-season finale, after press time for this edition.

    Bardstown junior Keldon Tilley is making his third trip to the state, leading a group of three other Tiger first-timers to the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena, site of the state meet. He’s tried to help coach up his teammates to prepare them for the biggest meet of their lives thus far.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Bardstown girls grab third straight win

    Bardstown’s girls used a balanced scoring effort Monday to score their third straight win, topping visiting Spencer County 60-52.

    Freshman MaTija Yocum led the Tigers with 13 points, while senior Haylee Koger and eighth grader Jaileyah Cotton had 11 apiece. Koger hit all but one of her six free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter.

    Bardstown (16-9) was attempting its fourth straight win Tuesday after press time for this edition at home against Adair County, and they will finish the regular season at home Friday against North Hardin.
