    HYPE AND HOOPS

    High School basketball used to be huge in Kentucky. It still is in some corners, but it seems the only way to fill up a high school gymnasium these days is to lure some big-name college recruits and bank on fans of a prospect’s future college buying up the tickets.

  • Bears finish tough stretch 3-1,...

    The Spencer County Bears just finished a four-game stretch that could have exposed them as pretenders. However, posing a 3-1 record in those games signals they’ll be a team to take seriously as the postseason looms less than three weeks away.

    The Bears started the stretch with a convincing 67-51 win over Collins two weeks ago, but then snow marred the rest of that week’s schedule. This past week, the Bears got back into action and it started with a road trip to Lawrenceburg.

  • Lady Bears snag close win

    The Spencer County Lady Bears got back on the winning track Saturday afternoon, edging the Lady Patriots of Allen County-Scottsville 41-39.

    It was a close game throughout and the Bears retook a two-point lead midway through the third quarter when McKenna Pfeiffer converted an old-fashioned three point play and then followed it up a minute later with two free throws to put her team up 27-25.

  • As season continues, Bears...

    Spencer County’s 67-51 win over Collins last week was big for a number of reasons. It was the first ever match-up between the Bears and the new school, it was a big district win and put the Bears in the driver’s seat for the top seed in the district tournament next month.

  • Lady Bears battle Oldham

    The Spencer County Lady Bears jumped out to a quick start against Oldham County and played their 8th Region foes close throughout before falling 61-55 at home.

    The Lady Bears used a very strong first quarter to build a seven-point lead and held a 19-12 advantage after the first quarter. However, the Lady Colonels stormed back in the second quarter, erasing that lead and went into the halftime break with a 31-30 lead.

  • Bears take down Titans, 67-51

    The Spencer County Bears faced a hostile crowd, the pressure of growing expectations, and a team that sported an identical 13-4 record as their own when they faced Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville last Tuesday.

    When the final buzzer sounded, the Bears had earned a convincing 67-51 victory, sole possession of first place in the region and even more confidence as the season begins to wind down to postseason play in a few weeks.

  • Bears in action Sunday at...

    Spencer County’s game against Bullitt East has been rescheduled for Sunday, Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. as part of a double-header that is expected to attract several Division I coaches, scouts and plenty of media.

  • Randall Cobb and Charlie Strong...

    “One thing Coach (Randy) Sanders always talks about is making memories,” Randall Cobb said last week. “I have made many with my teammates, coaches, administration, and fans that I will never forget.”

    Ah, the college experience.

    Probably Cobb made a diary notation also for Saturday January 15, 2011.

  • COLUMN: Bears will learn a lot...

    With only about four weeks left in the regular season, the Spencer County Bears are about to embark on the stretch of their season that may signal whether they are really contenders, or just pretenders.

    As of Monday, they shared the top spot in the 8th region with Collins, with both the Bears and Titans sporting 13-4 records. Those two teams were to play Tuesday night in Shelbyville with the winner likely to get the top seed in the 30th district tournament next month.

  • Bears have no problem with St....

    If the Spencer County Bears were looking for a good tune-up on Saturday before heading into a tough stretch in their schedule, they may have been disappointed when they squared off against a very over-matched St. Francis team.

    However, that’s about the only disappointment in a game that saw the Bears roll to an embarrassingly easy 98-18 victory.
    St. Francis actually won the opening tip and appeared to have scored the game’s first basket, but those points were waved off because the St. Francis bench had called a timeout right before the shot.
