Eastern 79 Ballard 76

Recommended Posts

The Eagles — No. 18 in The Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous Ratings — shocked No. 4 Ballard 79-76 in the 28th District Tournament final at Eastern Friday.

Tyrell Corlew scored 38 points for the Eagles (17-13), who avenged an 85-65 loss to Ballard on Feb. 10 on the same court.

That means Eastern automatically will play a district runner-up in the first round of next week’s Seventh Region Tournament at Bellarmine University. Ballard (23-8) will draw a champion from another district for its first-round foe.

“To be honest, this is not a big deal for Ballard,” Eastern coach Jason Couch said. “Ballard is one of the best four or five teams in the state. We’ve been up and down all year. This is huge for us.”
