    Former Kentucky basketball players Cameron Mills, Jeff Sheppard and Jared Prickett took a road trip to Louisville earlier this season to see their former UK coach, Rick Pitino, send his Louisville team against Utah Valley State and coach Mark Pope, another one of his former players at Kentucky.

    But the reason the group went might surprise you.

  • Bears have winning weekend

     

    The Spencer County Bears won consecutive games for the first time since before Christmas this past weekend, getting the best of Henry County, 59-45 on Friday night, and then returning for a 74-45 victory over Thomas Nelson on Saturday.

    The Bears broke open a close game against Henry County with a big third quarter, after clinging to a 24-22 halftime lead. In the third, the boys outscored the visiting Wildcats 20-8 to take a 44-30 lead, and then maintained that margin in the final quarter to pick up their eighth win of the season.

    Freshman Alyssa Howie led the girls with 17 points while sophomore Lauren Lambdin added 14. Sophomore Abby Myers added nine, and freshman Haylee Cox contributed eight points and seven rebounds. Junior Bailea Bryant scored five and sophomore Audrey Michels chipped in with four.

  • Fish streams for winter...

     

    A stretch of mild weather that loosens winter’s grip is an alarm bell for stream smallmouth anglers fed up with being stuck indoors.

    For them, wade fishing a cold stream for bronzebacks is a surefire way to melt away the winter doldrums.

    This is a laborious style of fishing. Hours spent casting and retrieving at a painstakingly slow pace may produce just a few bites. Soldier through and the payoff could be your biggest stream smallmouth of the year.

  • Gran is Stoop’s third offensive...

     

    For the third straight season, Kentucky will have a new offensive coordinator. Once again, even returning starters have to prove they deserve to be on the field.

    “Every position on offense has to be wide open,” new offensive coordinator Eddie Gran said. “When I started, I told (the players) you’re going to start building your resume. I’m looking for accountability and dependability. It doesn’t matter to me (who plays).

  • Despite loss, Lady Bears getting...

     

    Despite a ten point loss to East Jessamine, Lady Bears’ Coach Brandy Scott said her Spencer County girls played perhaps their best game in the 79-67 decision.

    “We played well on offense, defense, rebounding and fundamentals. “This was our best game thus far,” she said.

    Alyssa Howie scored 24 for the Lady Bears, with Haylee Cox adding 15. Lauren Lambdin chipped in with 10, with Audrey Michels adding eight, Bailea Bryant scoring seven and Abby Myers scoring three.
