Recommended Posts

From Mark Maynard. 




Ashland overcame a slow start by blistering the 3-point line in the second half to defeat Lyon County 87-81 Saturday night in the opening round of the King of the Bluegrass at Fairdale High School.

The Tomcats rained in key 3-pointers in the fourth quarter – two from Cole Villers and another from Ethan Sellars - that put them ahead 79-75. 

Ashland trailed 38-20 at one point in the first half but warmed up from long distance in the second half, making 15 of 21 from behind the arc. The Tomcats hit 18 of 39 3-pointers for the game.

Ashland outscored Lyon County by an astounding 37-28 in the fourth quarter.

Colin Porter made four free throws and Sellars scored four points in the last three minutes to secure the win and a date in the quarterfinals with Louisville Male on Sunday night at 9. Both teams are 5-2.

Lyon County shot 48.1 percent in the loss as high-scoring Travis Perry scored 32.

Four scored in double figures for Ashland led by Sellars with 25 points. Villers scored 24, Porter collected 19 points and 12 assists and Zander Carter had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Tomcats starting five played all 16 minutes of the second half.

Useless trivia department:

These two schools are about as far apart in distance as Kentucky teams can be. 340 miles and over 5 hours travel. Of course, this game was halfway for both as it was played in Louisville. One could drive to Washington, DC from Ashland in almost the amount of time it would take them to drive to Eddyville.
