    Sacred Heart in a close one. I believe S. Laurel matches up well, especially now with the big in the middle able to play.

    South has 6 losses this season but those were all without their 6’2 center who didn’t become eligible to shortly before the post season tournaments. In addition they’re coached by a fellow that’s already won two state titles. As the saying goes, “he’s been there and done that.”
    I think this will be a close game.

    Coach Chris Souder is a winner (500+), no doubt and two titles with Mercer Co. I think this is South's first trip to the Sweet 16 since 2008. It would be great to see more of the Laurel Co./South Laurel tradition return to Rupp.

    Between this game and last night's Anderson Co./Franklin Co. game, I feel like I got my money's worth from my NFHS video subscription package.

    Exceptional skill and hustle on display today.

    Injury TO. SHA's Kristen Clemons took a hard fall.

    Walks off the court on her own. Way to bounce #22!

    SL on 6-0 run previously. Up 35-29 @ 3:26 Q3.
