    The Harrison County Thorobreds jumped out to an easy lead against the over-matched Robertson County Black Devils Monday night.  
    It was too easy because, after a few minutes, the Robertson County squad pulled within two points of the relaxed Breds and appeared to be prepared to make a game of it.  
    Enter freshman guard Quenton Turley for the Breds and the intensity from the start of the game returned.

  • We should all be like Louisville

    We all know about the NCAA difficulties that are plaguing the University of Louisville’s basketball program and that they have self-imposed a post-season ban on themselves for both the ACC and the NCAA tournaments.  
    The reason that they are in trouble is, at the very least, some improprieties with women by some athletes in previous years and might be more than that considering how quickly the self-imposed penalties came out.  
    This is not the reason that we should all act like Louisville.
