For only the fifth time all season, Nelson County tasted a bitter loss.
The Cardinals (20-5) turned the basketball over five times in the final two minutes of play Tuesday, as LaRue County downed Nelson County 58-55 at home.
It was a 10-4 run that doomed Nelson County in the final moments of the contest as LaRue County came from behind.
“You have to play 32 minutes. We had the tempo the way we liked it. You have got to play together and play smart, and we didn’t play smart tonight,” Cardinal coach Kelly Wood said.
