  • Home run pitch: Calipari fouls...

    Mixing metaphors ... gopher balls, basketballs and money.
    Best home run pitch question for a ball coach in February?

    My vote goes to one from a reporter to John Calipari last week. “What do you think of the officiating in the SEC?”

    Was this a Ralph Terry fast ball to Bill Mazeroski all over again?

The team includes Blake Lambdin, Jamie Newnam, Jacob Cole, Ethan Breeden, Jamal Downs, Jacob Derudder, Jacob Mitchell, Robert Currie, Zach Stevens, Noah Dockery and Logan Holbrook.

    The Spencer County Bears completed their regular season last week with four games in five days and finished with an impressive 21-6 record heading into the 30th District

    Tournament that began Monday night here in Taylorsville.

    The Bears will be the favorite to claim the crown as they finished with a 4-0 record against district foes and an 8-1 mark against teams in the 8th region. The lone lost came Thursday night when the Bears lost a second half lead and fell to the Dragons of South Oldham, 57-48.

  • UK fans: Road loss woes are old...

    Reality check of Kentucky basketball’s road woes?

    What woes?

    The SEC stopped being UK’s road map to NCAA tourney bids before Jimmy Dykes knew a nail from a Brad Nessler cuff link, let alone where it is in a basketball floor.

    The Spencer County Lady Bears picked up two wins but suffered two more losses in the last week as they wind down the regular season.
