    Corbin wins despite still being without two-fifths of their starting lineup , accounting for over 30 pts a game.

    The difference maker tonight was big Bailey Rice. The big 6 ft 8 , 300+ lb. grotesque freak of a mountainous man-child had 13 pts. in seeing his first significant minutes of the season. The big man, coming off a football injury has the foot work and dexterity of a guy 5' 8" . His presence could potentially take the Redhounds, when at full strength, to another level.

    Chandler Stewart, who was honored before the game for reaching 1,000 pts. in his career, scored 26 pts. tonight for the Red Dogs, who improved to 14-4. Corbin has won two of three games without their two suspended starters, Cameron Maguet and Mr. Basketball candidate Andrew Taylor.

    Harlan County, now 15-3 on the season, placed three players in double figures. Creech led the way with 19, followed by Simmons with 14 and Pace with 10.
    Really good HS basketball game.

    Something about a cage. See Controversial forum. The kids should be back on the court next week as the team attempts to get laser- focused on the final third of season.

    The tone and/or lack of seriousness that you take about this whole situation is disturbing

    Not at all. I don't approve of it. There is a whole thread on it in Controversial Forum. I didn't want to rehash it in this thread. Read the thread closely and you will see that I don't take it lightly and that I was surprised to learn that such talk , from both sides of the coin, has apparently been part of the game for decades.I wish it wasn't. Let's talk basketball... Tonight was a very good HS game. Corbin raised $700 to help out with the funeral expenses for the Marshall Co. school victims.

    Pretty impressive that the Redhounds win over a really good Harlan County team with over 30 pts/games and a dozen boards a game sitting in street clothes on the bench.

    I would lobby to voters that Corbin shouldn't drop much in the poll because of the South Laurel loss. South is tough at home and Corbin was handicapped with 2/5 of its starting lineup sitting out due to suspension. With 6' 8" , 300 lb. Bailey Rice finally healthy enough to log significant minutes and guard Brody Barton returning from a torn ACL, the Redhounds and their Mr. Basketball candidate look to be poised for a deep run in March!!!
