Holy Cow ... Here we go again !!!!
The most heated rivalry in the state. To say these two teams and fan bases don't like each other is a gross understatement. This matchup has all the intrigue... race, lies, and , of course, videotape. There is a also family/school loyalty angle. The rivalry pits a grandpa(Corbin fan) versus grandson(KC player). There have been taunts, insults, and cheap shots(both verbal and physical) . Corbin's superstar has taunted and threatened online and "cheap -shotted "in both games played this year. A Knox player hurled racial insults at the Corbin faithful. And, of course, there is the now- infamous snapchat video controversy.
Knox Central parents have displayed their Thug Life KC T-Shirts on social media and will no doubt be wearing them just as proudly on Saturday. Hounds' fans will color the sold out Arena red, red, and more red.
Knox won the first game played this year 73-61 while the Hounds thrashed the Panthers in the second meeting 81-67 .
Corbin upset the Panthers in the semifinals of the region last year 55-52. And as they always do, the Panther fans cried foul. Then they just cried...
The Arena is expected to be sold out for Saturday's games. There won't be a better atmosphere in the state or a better venue to watch basketball than the 5,000 seat Arena in Corbin.
I hear security is gonna be on high alert. All bags will be checks for weapons and any other unsportsmanlike objects ...
It's Civil War in SEKY !!! Let's get it on .... Who wins and why????
