Faulkner returns to hardwood
2006 HCHS graduate Brooke Faulkner has returned to the basketball court after sitting out a transfer year and has played well in her two games at Austin Peay State University. She was cleared to play last week and has played in two of APSU’s games.
Faulkner transferred to APSU after playing one year at Western Kentucky University. She will have three years of varsity eligibility remaining for the Governors after being granted an injury red shirt year by the NCAA.
In her first game with the Govs, Faulkner’s first three-pointer of the season gave her team a lead they wouldn’t relinquish as they defeated SIU Edwardsville on Dec. 13, 74-52. She made three of four three-point attempts and finished with nine points, three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes of play.
On Tuesday night, she finished with a team-high 11 points in a 62-53 road loss to Middle Tennessee State University. In that game, she made four of nine shots from the field, including two of five three pointers. She also had five rebounds and an assist.
Breds frosh split at Bourbon County
The Harrison County Thorobreds freshman basketball team split a pair of games last Saturday at Bourbon County Middle School. In the opener, Harrison County narrowed the gap against a good Montgomery County squad, losing 57-53.
The week before, the same two teams met, with Montgomery County winning in a rout, 58-43.
This past Saturday, Jordan Stubbs led the Breds with 29 points, including 13 in the fourth period when the Breds outscored the Indians 20-15. Tyler Wagner added seven for Harrison County and Caleb Ford had six.
In the second game on Saturday, Harrison County spanked Bracken County 77-59. Ford led the way with 25, Wagner had 16 and Stubbs finished with 10.
Harrison County broke open a close game at halftime, outscoring the Polar Bears 20-10 in the third quarter, as they improved their record to 2-3.
Harrison County returns to the hardwood on Jan. 2, when they will play in the 10-team Dave Tramontin Classic at Lexington Catholic. In that tournament, Harrison County will square off against Madison Central in the first round at 9 a.m.
Other teams in the Classic include Manual, Lexington Catholic, Ashland, Clark County, Trinity, Male, Scott County and Lincoln County.
