  • Breds ease past Cardinals on a cold shooting night 58-47

    George Rogers Clark owned an eight-game winning streak over the Harrison County Thorobreds until Tuesday night on the Hilltop.  
    If someone would have said that the Breds were going to hit 50 percent from the foul line, 30 percent from the three point arc and 36 percent from the field and win by 11, hardly anyone would have believed it.  
    That is just what happened Tuesday as the Breds, after a determined if not artistic start, bested the Cardinals in a game where the lid that was on the basket was rarely removed.
