    Is this the first time ever the Wildcats have beaten Ballard?

    Exciting game throughout. Ballard led 17-15 after first quarter, but a strong second half by Waggener resulted in Waggener leading 41-32 at halftime. Ballard made up ground early in the third quarter and it was close thereafter. The game was tied 70-70 with a couple minutes left before Waggener outscored Ballard 10-4 the rest of the way to win by 6. Congratulations to Coach O'Neill and the Wildcats on a huge victory.

    The schools are less than 5 miles from each other in Louisville. Ballard obviously has been superior in basketball since it opened in the 1970's. Brian O'Neill does a great job with Waggener.

    Congrats to Coach O'Neill and the Wildcats!
    Anyone have a box score? I've got a couple former students playing for Waggener.

    Smallhoops.....Kalakon is supposed to be a good player. What is the lowdown on him......size, year, position, strengths, possible college player, etc.?
    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    He is a senior. Listed as 6'4", although he might not be quite that tall. Slender. At various times, he plays anywhere on the floor, although I think he fits best as a 2 guard. Very athletic, has a quick first step and can jump out of the gym. Has worked on his outside shooting, and through the first 4 games this year is shooting 44% from 3-point range. One of the things I like most about him is that he plays within Waggener's balanced offensive approach and is a true team player. For example, in Waggener's opening game against Central, he only took 4 shots from the field and scored 5 points. His numbers could be a lot higher if he was interested in pumping up his numbers, but he does not appear to be so interested. I understand that he has some Division I offers (Morehead among them). He seems like a good kid who will continue to get better as a basketball player.
