    The game was won by the George Rogers Clark Cardinals on the boards, on Tuesday night in Cynthiana.  The Breds had fewer turnovers, the shooting was either equal or the Breds were better, the Breds free throw shooting was better but Harrison County still lost.  The Cardinals outrebounded the Breds 37-13, including 19 offensive rebounds.

    The Harrison County Fillies came one game short of winning the Farmers National Bank Tournament held last Thursday through Saturday in Bowling Green.  
    Coach Kim Marshall’s team won two games Thursday, beat the host South Warren Lady Spartans on Friday and had the half-time lead in the championship Saturday before falling to Graves County, 57-47.  Like all good teams the Fillies had key scoring from several different players during the tournament.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team battled a loaded field, sickness and injuries in the Woodford County Invitational last Friday and Saturday.  There were 26 teams in the tournament, and the Breds took the mat without their regular varsity wrestlers in weight classes 106, 132, 138, 170, 220, and heavyweight.

    Most of you know that I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.  Some of you know when my team is out of the playoffs I move on to the next sport and not before. 
    Granted, I do know who wins the NCAA basketball games but I have not watched one game on television. I have gone to five or so Northern Kentucky women’s’ games but I do that to support Camryn and my granddaughters like Grace White.

    Some times as the cold winter falls upon us it gets hard to find happy, bright events to lighten the mood. We sometimes take our basketball too seriously and if things are not going particularly well there or in the political world it is even more difficult.
    Since the Wildcats beat the over-educated Tar Heels Saturday and, in my family’s case, the Hoosiers are 11-2 the basketball world is okay for now. There are other good things that have happened lately.

    The fifth-ranked team in the Commonwealth out-scored the Thorobreds by three points as Madison Central won the Gladiator at Fern Creek Saturday.  The Breds, who were missing several injured and ill wrestlers, did have their best finish ever in the narrow second place finish.  
    The Breds defeated Indiana power Reitz Memorial by four points as the Evansville school finished third.  Louisville Moore was 10 points behind Memorial in fourth place.
