  • Bears finish week at 1-2

    The Spencer County Bears went 1-2 over the past week, but played one of their best games of the season on the road in Washington County last Thursday.

  • Lady Bears move into home stretch

    The Spencer County Lady Bears could not overcome a tough start last Tuesday as they fell to the Lady Panthers of Frankfort, 52-37.
    Frankfort used its quickness to create all sorts of problems for the Lady Bears in the first half, stealing several passes and scoring off most of those turnovers on their way to building a huge 19-1 lead after one quarter.

  • COLUMN: The state's feel-...

    Western Kentucky University has been struck by an occupier movement. Fans of a Topper team that has won three of four, want interim removed from coach Ray Harper’s job title. The team transformation since Harper took over a month ago is becoming a feel-good story to rival Murray State’s No. 9 ranking and 23-0 streak, and Kentucky’s climb to No. 1.
    Harper’s Hilltoppers have shown new energy, grit and growing confidence not seen before. The coach’s rotation seems to have sent morale soaring, too.

  • Bears score tough win against...

    The Spencer County Bears positioned themselves to get the top draw in the district tournament later this month with last Tuesday’s 51-50 victory over visiting Anderson County. It’s an improbable position for the Bears, 7-13 on the season, but one they earned with a hard-fought win in front of a big crowd.

  • Lady Bears equal last year’s win...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears equaled last season’s win total with six following a 35-32 victory over Carroll County last Tuesday on the road. The girls are 6-15 on the year and despite the record, Coach Daniel Cox sees some light at the end of the tunnel.

  • COLUMN: Davis is a marvel, but...

    John Grisham knows and you know every good drama has its defining moments. Sports seasons do, too, and No. 1 ranked Kentucky has had enough already to make a novel.
    • December 3, 2011, via CBS, college basketball discovered a new household word not named Sullinger, Harrison Barnes or whoever Duke’s newest star is. North Carolina’s John Henson rose up from 10 feet to pop an all-but-certain game winner at Rupp Arena. Anthony Davis introduced himself.
    Anthony Who was no more. Henson-Davis became a seismic moment at ESPN.

  • Bears keep it close with Bullitt...

    On an emotional night at Spencer County High School, the Bears played one of their best games of the season, battling a highly-ranked Bullitt East team the whole game before losing 58-46 in front of a packed house.
