    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.

  • 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.
