  • Breds face district foes and an old rival

    The weekend and Tuesday brought the Harrison County Thorobreds face to face with some of their hottest rivalries. Nicholas County on Friday, Deming on Tuesday and the Paris Greyhounds in the middle made for some intense basketball.

    Friday night the Blue Jackets rolled into Cynthiana with two transfers and some veteran players to see how they matched up with the home standing Breds. They matched up nicely. 

    The game went into triple overtime before the visitors pulled away for an 83-78 win.

  • Basketball stripped to the basics

    There was an article in Sports Illustrated last week about Chuck Hayes of the Houston Rockets, late of the Kentucky Wildcats. It talks about the hard work and dedication to his profession that Hayes puts in day in and day out. 

    Hayes is a rare breed in the NBA, one who does what it takes to win regardless of personal stats. He is a reflection of his coach. While at Kentucky, Tubby Smith, who despite heavy scrutiny, was always a team first, individual second kind of coach.  There needs to be more like Hayes. If there were, the NBA might be watchable.

  • Fillies run record to 4-1 with big win over Nicholas

    If you count Monday as part of a long weekend, the Harrison County Fillies put up three victories for the weekend. Beginning with a knock down, drag out in Paris Friday and ending with two home wins, the Fillies brought their season record to 4-1.

    Friday’s game was what has come to be the norm for Harrison County vs. Paris. 

    In an extremely physical game, it was fitting that an intentional foul by Paris played a large role in the Harrison County win.
