    Newspapers, networks and magazines often look back at this time of year as they review the year just completed. It’s interesting to take a review trip over the past 12 months to see the events that impacted our world and community, but it’s equally as fun to look ahead.
    So with a brand new sports year ahead of us beginning in just a few days, here is one sports fan’s wishes for 2012:

  • COLUMN: Roark to Rockcastle,...

    Louisville at Kentucky.
    An argument can be made that Saturday’s high noon hoedown in Rupp Arena looms as (too) much about personalities John Calipari and Rick Pitino as it does about players and the game.
    Here are some questions and conclusions for thought during Saturday’s game:

  • Girls fall 55-39 to Western Hills

    The Spencer County Lady Bears fell behind in the second quarter and never could recover as they dropped a 55-39 decision to Western Hills last Monday at home.

    The Lady Bears kept it close early as they battled the Lady Wolverines bucket for bucket through most of the first quarter.

    A McKenna Pfeiffer steal and layup followed by a short jumper by MacKenzie Keown knotted the game at four, and Krysten Barlow’s bucket underneath tied the game up at 7-7 halfway through the first quarter before Western Hills went on a 8-2 run to end the period.

    Last Tuesday, against Western Hills, the Bears may have seen the third scorer accept that role as junior Bridger Knotts led the way with 21 points on the way to a 69-54 win over the Wolverines.
