    May gives way to June, halfway through a year. Must be time for the NBA finals.
    Q. Former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen said LeBron James may be better than Michael Jordan as the game’s greatest player. Your view?
    A. Baloney! The reporter who posted Pippen’s view apparently didn’t poll Kentuckiana. For purists, basketball is still a team game first and show-time a distant second. Because instincts, flare, passion and unselfish play make the game a joy to watch, nobody ever played basketball at its best than Larry Bird.

  • Softball playoffs on rain delay

    The Spencer County Lady Bears softball team was scheduled to begin their postseason play with a game Tuesday night in Shelbyville where they were to take on the winner of the Eminence-Shelby County game from Monday night.

    However rain suspended that contest and officials had rescheduled it for 3 p.m. on Tuesday, meaning the winner would advance to play the Lady Bears at 6 if the weather permitted.

  • Storm postpones district tourney

    The Spencer County Bears were set to host the 30th District Baseball Tournament on Monday night but were only able to complete one inning before an approaching storm postponed their game with Anderson County.

    With a scoreless game in the top of the second inning, a nearby lightning strike prompted umpires to direct the teams off the field for a weather delay.

    However, a heavy downpour minutes later rendered the field unplayable and the game was postponed and the tournament was to resume when weather allowed, possibly Tuesday afternoon.

  • COLUMN: WKU's Kerusch...

    Sergio Kerusch is blessed with a Scotty Pippin run-the-floor body, a smile worth a million bucks, and maybe, ideally, a Larry Bird play-all-day love for the game.

    The 6’5”, 225-pounder stepped up his game to Pippin-like numbers too at Western Kentucky last season. But this isn’t about Kerusch’s 15.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 44 turnovers in 992 minutes (32 games).

  • Grizzlies have superb season

    Kyle Alexander, a seventh-grader, throws a pass during warm-ups last Tuesday before defeating Marion County 5-1.

    The Grizzlies had a 12-game winning streak this season and defeated Anderson County to tie for a No. 1 seed in the district tournament, which was scheduled to start yesterday.  The team will also play in a state tournament beginning Saturday at Lindsey Wilson College.
