    Good to see the HHS faithful with such reasonable expectations for the new coach’s first season.

    He was teaching at CovCath while I was there from 89-93. One of the kindest, most unassuming men I've ever come across. He truly had the respect of every single person that walked those halls...which, as we all know, isn't easy when you're talking about teenage boys. I didn't have him for any classes and didn't play basketball..but he couldn't have been any more kind and gracious towards me in every single encounter I had with him. We were blessed to have him while we did.

    You do understand that the post was written by an author titled Mustang? Perhaps the opposing team needed to move their feet better, double team to make the guy give up the ball, rotate defenses, trap, etc. But as usual it's officiating. Sounds like the young man had a heck of a game and nailed his free throws.

    I'm glad a Tomcat fan that actually saw the game finally chimed in. From what I've seen posted so far, they're forming opinions based on radio broadcasts and text messages. I've watched the Livestream three times and kept a score book twice to make sure I've got an idea of how the game progressed. @Scoops Two of those refs have worked Sweet 16 finals games, so I'm going to suggest that maybe they have a fair amount of experience and are highly rated. Since there is video available, if anyone wants to forward it to the KHSAA or the 9th Region officials assigning secretary (I believe it is Mr. Pouncy) for potential sanctioning, those are some options. As to the fraternizing with the Cov Cath, *everybody knows the Park Hills Mafia paymaster sits on the bench with those fat cash envelopes*. I didn't see this from the video angle, but are you sure you're not mistaking polite conversation with collusion? As to fouls on Porter from pressure defense on the floor, I've got two listed: 1 by McHale at in Q1 (CC's 1st foul) and 1 by Starks in Q3 (CC's 9th foul/3rd of the second half). Ashland wasn't in the bonus in either half - no FTs for Porter. Those last 8 FTAs of the game were all Double Bonus 1+1s called on the floor, so Cov Cath *created* 4 of those FTAs by hitting the front end of those. Those 4 fouls in Q4 for the 8 FTs: Ipsaro fouled by Porter at 2:00. Ashland's 14th foul of the game / 7th of the half > Dbl bonus. Ipsaro: make/make. Score: CC 59 - A 45. Murphy fouled by Sellers at 1:13. A's 15th foul. Murphy: make/make. Score: CC 61 - A 47. Starks fouled by Atkins at 0:40.8. A's 16th foul. Starks: make/make. Score: CC 65 - A 50. Murphy fouled by Sellers at 0:28.1. A's 17th foul. Murphy: make/make. Score: CC 71 - A 56. I'm not a pro, but I've got every shot from this game logged and clocked. Complaining about FT discrepancies is a bad faith take if you don't put *the actual foul* in the context of its type/location/time. FINAL FOUL TOTALS: Ashland 17 - Cov Cath 12 Cov Cath fouls by Quarter: 2-4-3-3 = 12 Ashland fouls by Quarter: 5-2-4-6 = 17 FOUL TOTALS BY TYPE: Cov Cath: 10 on the floor, 1 on the shot, and 1 offensive foul. Ashland: 7 on the floor, and 10 on the shot. BY PLAYER - COV CATH: Starks 4; McHale 3; Rylee 2; Murphy 2; Stocks 1 BY PLAYER - ASHLAND: Marcum 5*; Sellers 4; Billers 3; Atkins 3; Porter 2 Next time, we'll talk about the game's 1st half, when Rylee and Stocks missed 5 layups *on purpose* while being fouled, just so the refs would give them an extra 5 FTAs. As a bonus, we'll feature Porter's 3 turnovers on consecutive Q1 possesions, and Cov Cath's 36-20 rebounding advantage. Heck, I'll be here all week, and I've got receipts. Try the veal, and don't forget to tip your waiter and the hat check girl.

    You have a short memory, failing to remember the debacle that took place in the second half last year in Latonia, where the Mustangs also shot 38 free-throws. What went down in Alexandria was that one pretty talented player, put his short-handed team on his back, challenged his opponents to stop him, and he netted 45 points. What it took to win on this night.

    Overwhelming. How else to describe it. Covid. Tragic accidents. Suicide. Cancer. The list goes on. Never seen anything like it in my lifetime. So many people are hurting because they have lost loved ones. I've had 5 and 1/2 years to recover from the loss of my Dad. Really no words to describe how much I loved him, the impact he had on me, and how much I depended on him, even up to the very end. I still find myself on Saturday mornings after a ballgame, starting to call him on my phone. A few days ago I walked in the house and Emma asked me what was wrong. I told her I was just really missing her grandfather. It still overwhelms me at certain times. My mom died just a few weeks ago. But, her suffering was so awful, it was a relief and I praised God that her days of anxiety and fear were over. The fact that she did not die in a mental institution was a miracle to be celebrated. Her passing was the end of an incredibly difficult journey. I love my Mom very much and I am thankful beyond words that she is well and whole as you read these words. A miracle that only Christ could make happen. So... how in the world do we do this? How do we keep going when our hearts are broken? I sure don't have all the answers, but here are some things that have helped me. I hope this can help others. 1- Praise God because I know I will see them again. I know this because of Jesus Christ. 2- Praise God in the details. When I am particularly sad and missing my Dad, I start remembering specific details about our times together. Over the past five years, I've walked across the wet field of grass in the rain, headed toward Commonwealth Stadium, to watch the Cats play Tennessee (November, 1973) many, many times. On that walk, I remember him talking about my great grandfather and that I need to pick a job based on what I love doing.... not what will make me the most money. I think that talk sealed the deal on coaching HS football. I have many more, but you get the idea. 3- I praise God when I see my family and know that my Dad would be so proud and happy. With my Mom's mental illness, he endured much more than he ever let on. There is no doubt in my mind that he did so to help me have the life I have now, and to have his family continue to grow and serve Christ. 4- I talk to his old players whenever I can. Or his friends. Or guys he coached with and against. Anyone that knew him. Anytime I visit with those guys, it feels like he is right there, even if just for a second. 5- I talk to others about him. Tonight, Cole Lanter (Boyle player/good friend of Trosper's) got to hear my Dad's dream... when he was at Boyle, he wanted to build one stadium where the Fairgrounds are located that would be used by both Danville and Boyle. He thought it would be great for the entire community. Obviously, that didn't work out. But, I want to be like my Dad in that regard... I would rather dream big and things not work out, than dream little and yes, you got little. 6- Look through old scrapbooks from when he coached. Read his words. 7- When I get up each morning, go out and be who I am... a follower of Jesus Christ and John Buchanan's son. That gives me a challenge each day to do my best, serve others, love others, and to have a GREAT attitude while I do it. 8-Look over at the field (our practice field/his old Mercer game field) and his old fieldhouse/lockerroom each day I go to the complex. That sidewalk is a time machine for me. I know they're not there, but it sure FEELS like my Dad and Robert Allen are standing on that sideline, late at night after a game, or during practice. Sometimes, I do feel like he is laughing at me when I get frustrated. That's a good thing because it feels like we are together on that field for a moment. 9- Thank God that I had a great Dad. I would rather have a great Dad and he is no longer here, than have an awful Dad and he is still here. 10 - I remember them the way I choose to remember them, especially my Mom. Her mental illness... that was not her. When I think of my Mom, she is her best. And...that is who she is NOW. Praise God. 11- Listen to old music... what he enjoyed and also what would be on the radio when I was with him and was growing up. 12- All of this... do it ONE DAY AT A TIME. When I think of a lifetime without my Dad, no way. But, TODAY, I can do this. I will get up tomorrow, and do it again. I hope this can help someone. Praise God... He gave us the people we love, He will never abandon us, and He has given us the ultimate & eternal victory in Christ Jesus.

    Exciting night for Brossart basketball. Without the services of Stephen Verst it was doubtful that our "makeshift" lineup would be able to generate enough points to compete with the prolific Holy Cross Indians who had scored 82 points twenty-four hours previous. Brossart had the hot hand in the first quarter, knocking home five 3-pointers and took a 22-13 early game lead. The Tribe returned the favor in the second stanza, outscoring the home team 26-14 to take a 39-36 to the locker-room at halftime. At the half Jacob Meyer, Holy Cross' super soph, led all scorers with 21, Brossart's Carson Schirmer had 13 and Robbie Verst 12. In the second half Carson Schirmer put his team on his shoulders and challenged the Indians to stop him, resulting in his scoring six field goals and hitting on 17 of 20 free-throw attempts, for a composite 45 points on the night, leading his team to an 86-77 quality win. By scoring 45 points, Carson Schirmer eclipses the "43 points in a game" school record, set by Greg Schwegmann back in 1970. He finished the night with 20 of 23 from the free-throw line, topping a thirty year old school record held by Ralph Kroger at 18 makes in a game. Schirmer also passed three members of our 1,000 Points Club, moving into 15th place among all-time Brossart scorers. Schirmer's outburst over-shadowed a superb 32 point performance by Jacob Meyer. Blake Robinson added 15, Jeremiah Hicks 13, and Brandon McClendon 11. In addition to Schirmer, Robbie Verst netted 18 and David Govan 10 for the Mustangs. The Mustangs continue on our seven game home stand, hosting the Augusta Panthers on Wednesday night in Alexandria. Our JVs failed to notch their fifth consecutive win, falling 53-45 to the JV Indians in overtime.

    My opinion would be I really don't care what the record will be this fall. I am looking for the little things. Is he creating an environment where these kids are 100% sold to the program, is the community backing him up 100% regardless what he does on these Friday nights. I see the tremendous talent in the pipeline (especially classes that will be Soph/Jr next year)...no offense to the upcoming Sr class but as far as #s go its going to be a heavy Soph/Jr talented team. Therefore, this fall I want to see a solid foundation created, so to J.O.A.T.'s opinion, Fall 2022 we are in the realistic discussion of making a run at the title. Now things might progress faster then my expectations and if they do O MY GOODNESS that would be awesome and I will take it.....but in my eyes 2022 contending championship is where my head is at.

    I’m from Mayfield, live in Hopkins County, coach at Madisonville, and have not applied for the Tilghman job. Wish whoever gets the job down there the best and thought Coach Smith, who is also from Mayfield, did a good job over there. Also that Coach Lovelace is one of the best in the business if he chooses to make that move!

    I said the same earlier in the thread. CovCath is a nightmare matchup inside for the Tomcats this year and I doubt a second matchup would be any different in outcome, unless Ashland was hitting a crazy amount of three pointers.

    "They" can say whatever "they" would like to. And you can say whatever you would like to. In the last 7 seasons, Cov Cath has two state titles and an overtime loss from the Sweet 16 semis that prove they can hang just fine when they are playing without local officials on the court. Everyone knows sour grapes when they hear them. Fact is, northern Kentucky officials call a tighter game than officials generally do in some of the other regions of the state. And that's fine. Other officials in other regions let things be more physical underneath...and that's fine too. Cov Cath went on the road and lost to North Laurel, Cincy St. X rolled into Park Hills and beat them at home, and they went to St. Henry and lost to the Cru....I didn't see one post from Cov Cath fans about being jobbed. I read about learning from the losses and taking lumps and using them to improve on shortcomings. But I heard a lack of boohoo-ing otherwise.

    9-1. Loss to BG. Highlands has a lot of talent and returns a really nice QB that will play well into the Sphire plan. Cov Cath has dominated Highlands for a while but I think the Birds take down the Colonels in a classic game. Cov Cath looked extremely mortal last year without any Mayers, and now they don’t have a QB who started for 3 years.

    Mustangs jump out to a 15-0 lead out of the gate in this one. Augusta narrowed the margin to 25-18 by halftime, but the Mustangs held sway, outscoring he visitors 37-33 in the second half to notch our 11th win of the season against 9 losses. Augusta completes their regular season play at 10-10. In the game Brossart's Carson Schirmer led all scorers with 18, connecting on 8 of 8 from the FT line, giving him 28 of 31 in a twenty-four hour span. Robbie Verst nailed five 3-pointers along with a deuce for 17 points. David Govan recorded back-to-back double-doubles by scoring 14 and pulling down 11 rebounds. Augusta's Kason Kinson answered with 17, Riley Mastin 16 and Chase Archibald 10. Brossart won the JV game 42-37. The Mustangs host Henry County Saturday afternoon as we honor our five seniors. Varsity game time is 4:30pm.

    I was the coach and all I am going to say is, what caused the situation I would do a 1000 times over even if this is the result and I did not resign even though I signed the letter. I would say more but going to take the high road. I did nothing wrong.

    @Purple88 Definitely a move in the right direction for sure. Thomas Nelson and Green County are both good, competitive pickups. It was really unfortunate when Thomas Nelson had to drop their game last season as I felt Central could win that game. I don't know what all the teams have coming back, but those two games would be the ones I would circle as the greatest potential for the streak to end. I'm a little leery of Marshall County just because of the school's size and the amount of players they dress, and I don't see them being competitive against Bullitt Central or Greenwood, but in theory there's no reason they can't get to a place to compete with those two. I'm interested to see what Russell County looks like now that their two stud RBs have gone. I already knew that BG and South were gone from the schedule. It is definitely still weird to see Bowling Green off. It's almost fitting that Central's bye week is during that third week when they used to play Bowling Green every year.

    Finally, the weather cooperated and just about everyone got most if not all of their scheduled games in. The top half of the rankings stays nearly intact, with some movement within the lower tier. 1). Clark County (12-3, 8-0 region, 5-0 district, . 625 RPI). 79-88 loss at Wolfe County, 74-67 win at Montgomery County Previous rank - 1 This week - vs. Bourbon County, vs. Madison Central, vs. Bryan Station Clark returned from COVID timeout a little rusty against Wolfe County. Jerone Morton returned to the lineup after a few weeks off with a broken hand and led the squad with 26 points, with Reshaun Hampton and Jared Wellman adding 16 and 13, but the Cards weren't able to contain Wolfe's backcourt. Saturday was a different story as GRC kept both their district and region undefeated records intact with the win on the road. Wellman led the way with 19 points, with Aden Slone contributing 16 2). Mason County (14-3, 7-2 region, 3-0 district, .622 RPI) - 59-56 win at Harrison County, 102-53 win vs. Fleming County, 88-74 win at Augusta. Previous rank - 2 This week - vs. Dixie Heights, at Walton-Verona Mason County started the week with a narrow overtime victory in Cynthiana, as the high-flying Royals were grounded for much of the contest by Harrison County's inside presence. The reliable trio of Nate Mitchell, Terrell Henry and Philip Bierley accounted for 47 of Mason's 59 points. Friday was a different story as the Royals bolted to an 80-28 mid-third quarter advantage and played everyone on the roster in the rout over Fleming County. Ten Royals scored and five reached double figures - Mitchell with 24, AP Perry 15, Braylon Hamilton and Bierley each with 14 and Henry with 10. Finally, Mitchell paced the squad with 30 on 11-15 shooting against Augusta, ably supported by Henry (22/9) and Bierley (13/14). Week 9 will prove to be more difficult as the Royals face strong opposition from 8th and 9th Region representatives. in a bit of trivia, the Royals took over the region’s top RPI ranking by .001 for approximately 24 hours - from Friday evening until GRC dispatched MoCo the next day Mason County drew Augusta in the 39th District draw. 3). Campbell County (13-7, 7-2 region, 2-1 district, .590 RPI) - 81-69 win at Augusta, 75-81 OT loss at Conner, 67-64 win vs. Holmes. Previous rank - 4 This week - vs. Newport, at Highlands. Only four Camels scored at Augusta, but three of them had double-doubles - Aydan Hamilton (27/11), Dane Hegyi (22/11; 10-11 shooting) and Eric The Red Davie (15/15); while Garrett Beiting accounted for the other 17. Beiting paced the team with 31 as the Camels fell just short on the road at Conner in overtime. Hamilton, Beiting and Hegyi led the way in the hard-fought win against Holmes with 22, 16 and 10, while Davie garnered 14 caroms. 4). Montgomery County (9-5, 7-3 region, 4-2 district, .567 RPI) - 77-46 win at Paris, 49-55 loss vs. Madison Central, 67-74 loss vs. Clark County Previous rank - 3 This week - vs. Boyd County, at Western Hills, vs, Harlan County The Indians started the week off with a romp over 40th District foe Paris, led by Harrison Hagan's 19 points. Also reaching double figures were Eric Morgan and Brandon Dyer. Ricky Lovette's double-double streak (every game of the season) came to an end with his 9/14 statline. The Indians were held to just 36% shooting by Madison Central; with Hagan the only double-figure scorer at 20. Lovette did keep his double-figure rebounding string alive with ten boards. Lovette got back to his double-double ways in the loss to Clark County 5). Scott (10-8, 4-0 region, 3-0 district, .571 RPI) - 46-81 loss vs, Dixie Heights, 57-64 loss at Beechwood, 69-51 win vs. Bishop Brossart. Previous rank - 5 This week - vs. Augusta, vs. Cooper, at Fleming County The 9th Region wasn't kind to Coach Fromeyer's Eagles, who fell hard to Dixie; with Grant Profitt the only double-figure scored at 22. The Eagles showed much better against a strong Beechwood Tigers quintet and hung tough until late. Profitt was held to 6 in this one, while Cameron Patterson, Dasani Land and Brayden Howell picked up the scoring pace with 19, 14 and 10. The friendly confinces were much to Scott's liking as they remained perfect in the 37th District with an 18-point defeat of Brossart. The Eagles scorched the nets from everywhere, including 8-11 from distance. Profitt had 20 points (including 5-7 from three) while Riley Huff had 16, Howell 14 and Patterson 10/12. 6). Robertson County (11-4, 6-2 region, 1-1 district, .559 RPI) - 87-67 win at Fleming County, 63-71 loss at West Carter, 68-55 win at Pendleton County, 87-57 win vs. Bracken County. Previous rank - 6 This week - at Nicholas County, vs. Rowan County Justin Becker had a monster 35/16 game in Flemingsburg on 16-20 shooting. Robertson then traveled to Olive Hill for their first-round game in the All-A Classic against West Carter. The Devils had a couple of 6-points lead in the fourth quarter, but West was able to take the game into overtime and ultimately prevailed. Becker, Sebastian Dixon and Brandon Dice scored 20, 17 and 12, with 14 of Becker's 20 coming from the charity stripe. No stats available as of the writing for the final two games of the week. 7). Bishop Brossart (9-9, 46-3 region, 0-2 district, .503 RPI) - 65-62 win vs. Pendleton County, 58-57 win at Lewis County, 68-48 win vs. Harrison County, 69-51 loss vs. Scott. Previous rank - 8 This week - vs. vs. Covington Holy Cross, vs. Augusta, vs. Henry County. Coach Code's wounded warriors continue to adjust their lineup; as it seems that when one man finally gets healthy, another goes down; with the Week 8 casualty being leading scorer and rebounder (19.9/7.2) Stephen Verst. Verst, who scorched the nets for 32 on 8-8 shooting against Pendleton County, has missed the last three games. Carson Schirmer (who notched 16 against Pendleton) led the team with 23 in the narrow victory over Lewis County, with David Govan and Mason Sepate contributing 14 and 13. Robbie Verst (yes, he's a younger brother) paced the 'stangs with 21 in the win over Harrison, with Govan and Schirmer (who looks to be playing well after a football injury had sidelined him until a couple of weeks ago) had 18 and 15. However, the Mustangs are still looking for the elusive first 37th District after falling to Scott on the road on Friday and playing their fourth game in five days. Schirmer, Sepate and Govan all reached double figures in this one. 8). Harrison County (10-9, 6-6 region, 2-1 district, .499 RPI) - 56-59 loss vs. Mason County, 48-68 loss at Bishop Brossart, 40-36 win vs. Bryan Station. Previous rank - 7 This week - vs. no games appear on the schedule. Five Breds reached double figures against Nicholas County, as The Custards led the way with 15 and 13. Kaydon and Tayshaun (19 and 15) led the way again as Harrison hung with favored Mason County all game before falling in overtime on a last-second three. In a result that surprised this intrepid reporter just a bit, no Thorobreds reached double figures in a 20-point whipping at the hands of Bishop Brossart in Alexandria. I don't know if this is a scheduling quirk or what, but the Scoreboard shows no upcoming games for Harrison County. 9). Calvary Christian (15-6, 4-3 region, 0-2 district, .521 RPI) - 60-66 loss vs. Ludlow, 57-40 win at Pendleton County, 100-28 win vs. Hillsboro (OH) Christian, 61-50 win at Walden. Previous rank - 9 This week - vs. Dayton, vs. Bellevue. Once again the Cougars win the games they should and add in the occasional surprise. The narrow loss to Ludlow was the second such this season. Logan Hinkle led the way with 20 points, while Carter Hudson had a game-high 18 rebounds. Same story in the Pendleton County game - Hinkle with 19 points and Hudson with 10 boards. The laugher over Hillsboro saw a half-dozen Cougars reach double figures and three grab ten rebounds. Ethan Mulling had a team-high 21 in the victory over a Walden squad that hadn't played a game since January 25. 10). Augusta (9-8, 5-5 region, 3-2 district, .492 RPI) - 60-76 loss at NewCath, 69-81 loss vs. Campbell County, 81-52 win at Bath County, 74-88 loss vs. Mason County. Previous rank - 10 This week - at Pendleton County, at Scott, at Bishop Brossart. Kayson Hinson led the Panthers with 26 in the loss at NCC which saw A-Town down by just a bucket at halftime; while Riley Mastin had 26 and 12 in the Campbell County tilt. Hinson notched the scarce triple-double in Owingsville (18/14/10) with Mastin pouring in another dozen; a game which saw Coach Jason Hinson record his 100th win at Augusta. The Panthers fell behind Mason County by 15 in the first quarter; held serve the rest of the way but never really threatened. Augusta drew Mason County in the 39th District tournament draw. 11). Pendleton County (7-8, 4-6 region, 2-1 district, .449 RPI) - 62-65 loss at Bishop Brossart, 40-57 loss vs. Calvary Christian, 55-68 loss vs. Robertson County. Previous rank - 12 This week - vs. Augusta, at Beechwood, vs, Boone County, at Grant County. Pendleton showed reasonably well in the losses to Brossart and Robertson, but 34% shooting and only 6 points from leading scorer Tredyn Thomas was not a recipe for success against Calvary. The week 9 schedule certainly isn't any easier. 12). Nicholas County (7-13, 2-7 region, 0-2 district, .375 RPI) - 75-56 win vs. Powell County, 69-53 win vs. Paris, 67-52 win at Dayton, 58-80 loss at Fleming County. Previous rank - 14 This week - vs. Robertson County, vs. Berea, vs. Fairview. The Jackets went 3-1 last week, only dropping the Fleming County contest. Dalton Davenport with a nice 22/13 effort against Powell; 22 again against Paris while Brady Switzer and Lincoln Morris recorded double-doubles; 22 again (I sense a pattern here) versus Dayton; while Switzer led the scoring parade in the Fleming County game with 16. 13A). Paris (3-11, 2-9 region, 1-5 district, .391 RPI) - 46-77 loss vs. Montgomery County, 53-69 loss at Nicholas County, 78-69 win at Bracken County, 57-54 win vs. Bourbon County. Previous rank - 15 This week - vs. Woodford County, at Great Crossing. The Hounds lost their first two games of the week, but bounced back with their second and third wins of the season on back-to-back victories in Brooksville and against crosstown (more like down the street) rival Bourbon County. Ricquice Washington poured in 31 in the Bracken County contest; and followed up with 23 against Bourbon. Good to see Coach Baker's crew experience some late-season success. 13B). Bracken County (6-17, 2-11 region, 0-3 district, .425 RPI) - 52-77 loss vs. NewCath, 74-90 loss vs. Covington Holy Cross, 69-78 loss vs. Paris, 57-87 loss vs. Robertson County. Previous rank - 11 This week - vs. NewCath, vs. Covington Holy Cross, vs. Paris, at Robertson County. The Polar Bears find themselves in free fall, dropping all four home games last week, seven in a row and ten of the last eleven. Blake Reed continues to shine, scoring 102 points last week - 27 against NCC, another 27 against Holy Cross, 26 against Paris and 22 against Robertson County. I think that Bracken when all is said and done will redeem their drop in the rankings as they seem to play to the level of the competition, but the home loss to Paris gives one pause. Bracken County drew St. Patrick in the 39th District Tournament draw. 15). Bourbon County (3-12, 3-6 region, 1-4 district, .391 RPI) - 43-61 loss at Woodford County, 43-49 loss at Marion County, 54-57 loss at Paris. Previous rank - 14 This week - at Clark County, vs. Bracken County, vs. Belfry. Jack Huckabay was the sole Colonel reaching double figures in the losses to Woodford and Marion with 18 and 19. Bourbon has dropped four straight. 16). St. Patrick (1-17, 0-8 region, 0-1 district, .301 RPI) - 27-67 loss at Elliott County, 33-71 loss to Villa Madonna. Previous rank - 16 This week - at Rose Hill, at Williamstown. Chase Walton with 20 and 12 against Elliott County. The Saints drew Bracken County in the 39th District draw.

    Recently I would say CJ Fredrick/Nick Ruthsatz from CovCath, and Adam Kunkel/Sean McNeil from Cooper along with Beetle Bolden from Holmes.

    There are others, but my favorite, because he was a friend and fellow parishioner, was Dan Tieman (played for the Cincinnati Royals in 1962-63).

    That's because he's from Kentucky. If he wasn't not a single person would be calling for him to play more.

    Wrong. Calipari simply rolls out the ball; we all know this. A staff of Brad Stevens, Mark Pope, Travis Ford, Frank Vogel, with Richie Farmer running quality control is coming.

    In 2004, I thought they were pretty crazy in Boone County or at least at my house. My daughter was four.....I really traumatized her with the cicadas. I asked her to walk behind me along the fence lined with trees and as I came to each branch, I would yank on them sending the little bugs flying in all directions, mostly at her......I don't know that she has ever forgiven me for that.

    Holy Smokes folks this was a game!!! The Boone County Rebels who seemed to have been hitting their stride as of late, climbed the Hill at Newport Central Catholic with the swagger of a winning attitude that they carried from their first possession until the final horn, and just as they had planned they would not be denied. I’m telling you folks, this one is worth a watch even though you already know the outcome. It was just so darned exciting to see Boone County’s confidence increase with every play, and personally after the mighty fight that they gave if it had all turned sour for them at the end, I might’ve cried myself to sleep tonight with distraught. They struck first and held the lead until mid-way in the 3rd period NewCath finally got the edge at 40-39, and then the Breds ended that period up 47-46 and we just knew that the 4th period was going to be an exciting one. Right out of the gate the Rebels were on fire in the 1st quarter showing who was boss, and ended that period up by 10, 21-11. About 2 ½ minutes into the game Joel Ilses fouled a Rebel going up for a shot and came down hard and got up limping and we didn’t see him again until the beginning of the 2nd quarter. The Rebels held control and went into halftime with the lead 34-29 I was biting my nails hard in the 4th period because while the Rebels showed every indication they were going to fight this thing out and finish it, I was just praying that the ball didn’t bounce the other way and they’d be denied the joy of victory after having played their hearts and guts out. I really would like to see that stats because I literally can’t tell you names, especially for the Rebels, but Baggett, and Butts both had good games for the Breds, finishing well around the rim. Butts really does finish well around the rim and is super dependable. The Rebels were fighting on every possession for every loose ball, and every rebound, and just kicking it into high gear in transition. Number 23 senior Parker Fields for the Rebels perhaps might not pass the eye test as being a basketball player, but wow that kid doesn’t stop. He’s no doubt their leader, and is just one dynamite player. I don’t know his back story, but I was highly impressed with him. If you’ve got the time I highly recommend watching this game, because this is what Kentucky High School Basketball is all about, and the thrill of victory and seeing your hard work pay off. I think (though I’m not sure) that Boone will face Conner in the first round of the 33rd district, and if they take this same intensity and tenacity into that game, I’m calling the upset right now. At the end of 1 it was Boone County up 21-11 At the half it was Boone up 34-29 At the end of the 3rd it was NCC up 47-46 Final Boone County 64-61 Cole Shumate for the Rebels ended the night with 25. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR1tdeKd_0M

    This was a great game to call on Holy Cross Radio. It was a fast paced game with a lot of talent on the court and great plays made by both teams. Holy Cross led most of the first half and led by as many as 11 points in the 2nd half until the Birds started their comeback late in the 3rd led (in my opinion) by junior Zach Barth. He hit a big 3 at the end of the 3rd and another to start the 4th. He had 16 of his 18 points in the 2nd half. As good as Sam Vinson and William Herald played I thought, momentum wise, Barth was the difference stepping up and hitting big shots during their comeback. As far as Holy Cross I couldn't be more proud. They were missing 4 varsity players, one starter (Dylan Arlinghaus) due to contact tracing and battled the whole night against one of the top teams in the 9th. Sophomore Jacob Meyer, who recently went over 1,000 points in his career, was on fire in the first half hitting 4 three pointers en route to 25 first half points. He would finish with a game-high 32 points. Seniors Blake Robinson (16), Brandon McClendon (15) and Jeremiah Hicks (14) were huge all night logging a lot of minutes for the tribe. Best of luck to both teams the rest of the way. Holy Cross travels to Alexandria to take on Brossart tonight and then close out their regular season on Friday when they take on the Holmes Bulldogs at the Fieldhouse. Unofficial scoring and stats from HC Radio - Highlands (17-4) - Vinson 28, Herald 18, Barth 18, Harris 10, Muller 8, Read 4 Holy Cross (12-7) - Meyer 32, Robinson 16, McClendon 15, Hicks 14, Ward 3, Pulsfort 2 3-Pointers - HC 11, HHS 10 Free Throws - HC 9/14, HHS 20/29

    Some analysts think he is the most valuable player in the ACC. I would say he means more to his team than any other player means to his respective team.

    The value of a strong point guard on full display. Jones carried UL to that win.

    Final from Crestwood. The Wildcats bounce back in impressive fashion after letting one get away in Owenton the night before. Ashton Gullion scored a career high 30, including 15 in the first quarter when the Wildcats took control. Logan Riddle added 14 points and 8 rebounds. Gallatin now stands at 12-7 after their 11th victory in 13 games.

    LOVE the St X matchup! That is a great step forward for Owensboro! Concerning @Colonels_Wear_Blue bolded above, does that say more about Owensboro or Daviess and OCath? To @Tkinslow point, I would too! To me Owensboro, could keep 2 of the 3 "local rivals" on the schedule for a 2 year scheduling cycle and then rotate the other one in and keep going with that. It would keep those local games and give them flexibility to schedule another competitive game. In the end, are you playing to win the "City Championship" or the "State Championship"?

    I honestly thought this stretch of games would expose Doss....instead, they have performed well against the likes of Oldham County and DeSales. Congrats to the Colts on a solid region victory, and kudos to the Dragons for another quality game!
