Oldham County, with the 56-55 victory over 10th Region champion Campbell County, has earned the a berth in the Final Four for the fourth time in school history.
In the early 60s, Oldham lost in the semi-finals to eventual state champs Wes Unseld and Seneca.....in the mid 80s, Oldham fell to eventual state champ Hopkinsville after losing a fourth quarter lead.
Oldham's last trip to the semi-finals came in 2012, under coach Jason Holland. Oldham County fell to Scott County by 13 points.
This is also only the third OCHS team to reach the 31 win plateau. The 1980 team, coached by Dave Hart, Jr., went 31-3 and reached the Sweet 16 (still the all-time best record for Oldham), and Holland's 2012 team went 31-6. That team was the only previous Colonel team to win 31 games and advance this far in the tourney.
This year's squad still has the opportunity to improve on both records, but to win #32 and to advance to a first-ever championship game, the Colonels will have to upset #2-ranked
Two "Colonels" teams - both in royal blue.
Oldham will try to ride the hot hand of Zach Larimore, who's averaging over 17 ppg during the post-season (nearly 6 points above his season average) and hitting well over 60% of his shots. Larimore hit 10 of 11 against Campbell County and scored 23 points.
