  • Bob Knight 'plays the fool...

    In life, each of us must sometimes play the fool.

     - Yiddish Proverb

    Thank you, Bob Knight.

    Indiana’s ex-coach was in Indianapolis last week at a fund raiser for the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. It was also Knight’s night to ... play the fool. (wink)

    As always, when The General speaks, we listen and think and form opinions on his opinions, whether we agree or not (he doesn’t care). We are seldom disappointed.

  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears dropped a 73-35 decision to a tough Anderson County team Saturday afternoon at the middle school.

    Facing what will surely be one of the favorites to reach Bowling Green from the region, the Lady Bears fell behind early and never were able to seriously challenge the visiting Bearcats.

    The visitors used their superior size inside to score easy baskets and the cause was not helped when senior Chelsea Gross went down with an injury and couldn’t play for most of the second half.

  • SCHS players make All-Star team

    If you followed the Spencer County Bears on the football field this past season, Cameron Smith stood out for his exciting play and any glance at the post-game stance would have your attention drawn to David Cross, whose consistency on the defensive side was evident.

    Both of these seniors were recognized for their outstanding play recently by being selected to the Greater Louisville Coaches Association All-Star Team, which played in the annual All-Star game this past Saturday afternoon at Southern High School in Louisville.

  • Bears capture St. Francis...

    Spencer County’s impressive start to the season continued over the weekend as the Bears claimed first place in the St. Francis tournament in Louisville, winning three games over two days, the last victory being a thrilling 63-62 overtime triumph over Fort Knox in the title game Saturday night.

    The Bears and the Eagles changed leads in the first half with Spencer County clinging to a 27-26 advantage at the break, and neither team was able to pull away the rest of the way and the game went into the fourth quarter knotted up at 41 each.

  • Knocking them down 1,2,3

    The Spencer County Bears are already halfway to equaling last year’s win total, and it’s only one week into the season. The boys took their first three games of the season, starting with an impressive 68-38 thrashing of Washington County at home last Wednesday.

  • Kentucky’s win over...

    When is a hang-on win better than a blow-out? When it produces a North Carolina-Kentucky game film in December.

    Reward? Kentucky takes a No. 4 ranking and 8-0 record to Madison Square Garden against Connecticut.

    UK’s star-studded lineup reminds us of rookie season for Dan Issel, Mike Pratt and Mike Casey. A team that got off to a 9-1 start and No. 4 ranking.

    And, Win No. 2,000 in UK basketball history will happen where it should: in Rupp Arena against Drexel or Long Beach State.

    Items John Calipari will point out on game film.

  • Local players help West conquer...

    Spencer County’s Tyler Eldridge (far left), Trenton Bryant, Cody Nevitt, and Michael Fowler stand victorious on the field of Kentucky State University after helping their fellow West All-Star teammates win the 1st Annual Kentucky Middle School Football Association’s East v/s West All-State Classic in Frankfort.

  • Application sales begin for 2010...

    Applications for Kentucky’s 2010 elk hunt lottery went on sale today. Applications cost $10, and give the purchaser a chance to win a bull or cow elk tag. Applictions are available online only.

  • Spencer girls face tough start...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears are off to a tough start to their 09-10 season, sporting an 0-5 record through the first week of action, a week filled with some stiff competition and hopefully some lessons that will pay off as the season goes on.

    The girls traveled to Bardstown last Tuesday to open the season and dropped a 56-34 decision to the Lady Tigers.

  • High school sports are better

    High school basketball season kicks off this week in Kentucky. Our state has such a storied tradition of high school hoops and there’s a new chapter to be written every year.

    Anybody who has ever watched the movie “Hoosiers” about the small school in Indiana who accomplished the improbable by going up against the big schools to claim the state championship should appreciate the legendary stories of teams in Kentucky like Carr Creek, Cuba and Hazel Green, small schools who also lived out the “Hoosiers” dream in real life.
