  • Ulis surprises many with rise in...

     

    Sporting News columnist Mike DeCourcy always believed that Tyler Ulis would be a successful college basketball player and was one of the few who did not question why Kentucky coach John Calipari signed the 5-9 point guard out of Chicago two years ago.

    However, even DeCourcy didn’t expect Ulis to become Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and consensus All-American in his second season at UK and a likely first-round draft pick in June.

  • Lady Bears go 2-2 in busy week

     

    First year coach Jimmy Schmidt has his young softball team believing they can play with the best, and so far the results match his confidence.

    The Lady Bears are 5-3, and those three losses were to teams with a combined record of 14-1.

    The girls split four games last week, topping North Bullitt and Washington County, two wins sandwiched between a 14-5 loss to powerful Louisville Ballard, and a 7-5 loss to Franklin County on Saturday.

  • Bears stay perfect with three...

     

    Good pitching and timely hitting continue to be the winning recipe for the Spencer County Bears, as they’ve run their record to a perfect 5-0 to start the season, after three impressive wins last week.

    On Saturday, the boys traveled to Louisville Waggener and took a 21-5 victory. The Bears got an early 2-0 lead in the first inning. They continued to light up the scoreboard and led 8-5 in the bottom of the fifth, but then the Bears erupted in the final two innings.

  • UK’s 6-10 recruit once preferred...

     

    There was a time that Kentucky signee Sacha Killeya-Jones had more passion for football than basketball and never dreamed of playing in the McDonald’s All-American Game like he did this week in Chicago.

    His mother, Ley, a former college basketball player, put a basketball in his hand when he was only a one-year-old.

    “We bought him a little kiddy hoop for inside like most parents,” she said. “It was the first sport we let him play.”

  • Catching up with Jimmy Houston

     

    The growth of outdoor television and an expanding library of videos available online means anglers no longer have to wait until weekend mornings to get their fill of fishing shows.

    Viewers would tune in each week to ESPN, TBS and The Nashville Network to watch the likes of Jimmy Houston, Bill Dance, Roland Martin, Hank Parker, Jerry McKinnis and others catch big fish, and lots of them. As entertaining as it was, there was educational value. The shows introduced generations of anglers to new equipment and new lures, but also taught them new ways to fish.

  • Bears slam their way to 2-0 start

     

    A third inning grand slam home run by Lucas Tackett propelled the Spencer County Bears an opening day, 13-1 victory over North Bullitt last Tuesday.

    In front of a large crowd on an 80-degree, sunny day, the Bears and Eagles were mired in a pitcher’s duel early on. Spencer County senior, right-hander Blake Lambdinn pitched a perfect first inning, then created a little trouble for himself in the second inning, walking the bases loaded with two outs, before retiring the third out on strikes to avoid any harm.
