  • Scott County rips Breds 91-49 Tuesday

    As Coach Larry Kendall said, “We played them well for the first quarter, but after that it wasn’t pretty.”  
    That sums up the Harrison County Thorobreds’ trip to Scott County on Tuesday night.  
    Kendall went on to say, “After the first period, we made some poor decisions, took some bad shots and were out hustled to every 50/50 ball.  All things that you can’t do against a really good team.”

  • Thorobreds lose home battle with Cooper

    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost their third straight game Friday night when they dropped a closely contested game with the Cooper Jaguars, 55-51.  
    The game played on the Hilltop was a rematch of a Dec. 18 game at Mason County where the Breds won by a 54-42 margin.  
    Cooper was playing without freshman guard Sean McNeil, who was out with an injury, but Sean’s older brother senior Zach picked up the slack as he poured in a game high 23 points to lead the Jaguars.
