  • Smith, Cardinals fighting through growing pains

     

    TreVon Smith has seen the spoils of victory.

    He has witnessed what it’s like to play in the Mecca of high school basketball, under the bright lights of Rupp Arena.

    For the past two seasons, the Taylor County junior guard has seen the peak of the mountain with the Cardinals, the three-time defending 5th Region champions.

    But this year has gotten off to a rocky start for Taylor County, which is 4-12 after Tuesday night’s win over Louisville Moore. Smith, though, isn’t panicking.

  • Basketball legend Clem Haskins to be honored with court dedication Saturday

     

    A local legend will be honored Saturday night at a tournament named for him.

    Clem Haskins, a Taylor County native and basketball legend, will be honored by Taylor County High School, as the basketball court in the school’s new gymnasium is officially dedicated in his honor. The court will officially be named Clem Haskins Court. The dedication will take place at halftime of the Taylor County boys’ game in the fourth annual Clem

    Haskins Classic, which is scheduled to start around 8 p.m., following the TCHS Lady Cards 6 p.m. game.

  • Campbellsville teams fall in All "A" play

     

    When Bardstown defeated Campbellsville 59-58 in the finals of the Campbellsville Holiday Classic in late December, the game was not decided until Connor Wilson’s last-second baseline jumper bounced off the rim.

    It was only fitting that the rematch last Thursday in the opening round of the All “A” Classic was also decided on a shot at the end of the game.

  • Cards get first win in new arena

     

    Finally, the Taylor County Cardinals have a win in their new Citizens Bank Arena.

    Junior guard TreVon Smith scored a game-high 31 points, leading the Cardinals to a 56-45 win over Louisville Moore on Tuesday night.

    “It’s a big momentum booster,” Smith said. “This is our first win at home and it was good to give our crowd a W. It’s good for momentum going forward. It feels good. We finally got the monkey off our back. It’s relieving, for real.”

  • Taylor takes down North Hardin, 49-45

     

    Despite a tough game through the first three quarters from the North Hardin Trojans (5-12), the Taylor County Cardinals (3-11) used good free-throw shooting down the stretch to pick up a 49-45 win last Thursday night at Ron Vevars Gymnasium.

    The Trojans built a 10-1 lead to start the game, and the teams were tied after both the first two quarters, but the crawling pace meant baskets and runs were tough to come by.

    No player finished with more than five rebounds and no one on North Hardin scored in double figures.
