  • Eagles, Lady Cards and TCHS...

    Regular-season play concluded on Friday in high school basketball, and Campbellsville’s boys’ and Taylor County’s girls’ and boys’ teams chalked up triumphs on either Thursday or Friday.

    Campbellsville hit 19 second-half free throws to win a physically-played game 49-41 over visiting Nelson County on Friday night.

    The Eagles, who finish regular-season play with a 22-4 record (just like North Hardin) were led by the back-court duo of Matthew Davis and Bryton Taylor with 14 and 12 points, respectively.

  • CU men maintain MSC lead

    In a league where coaches are happy with their next one-game winning streak, eighth-ranked Campbellsville University has put together an improbable four-game streak against some of the league’s best to hold down first place in the Mid-South Conference with an 8-2 (20-6) record.

    The latest victim is the University of Rio Grande, which the Tigers dispatched 77-57 Saturday evening in Ohio. It was the seventh win in the Tigers’ last eight games, a 56-53 blemish to St. Catharine being the only loss in the Tigers’ last five conference games.

  • Tough Tuesday for local hoop...

    All four local high school basketball teams dropped Tuesday night tilts on the road as regular-season play winded down.

    Campbellsville’s boys fell 59-58 at Green County when Justin Givens’ lane jumper came just before the final buzzer to offset Myan Rice’s three, which had put the Eagles up.

    The Lady Dragons rolled 81-31 over the Lady Eagles behind Kelsea Mitchell’s 18 points while Tiffany Slone led CHS with 15.

    TCHS’ Lady Cardinals fell 72-59 at Hart County as the Lady Raiders placed five in double figures.

  • No. 5-rated Lady Tigers remain...

    Ginger Colvin thought she might need to call the Rio Grande (Ohio) EMS on Saturday afternoon to see if her team had a heartbeat. And it wasn’t a false alarm. The Lady Tigers chucked the resuscitator, though, and extended their Mid-South win streak to 10, and a sparkling 25-1 overall record, with a 79-67 victory over the Red Storm.

    “We just came out flat,” Colvin said. “I thought Whitney (Ballinger) got hammered early, and it took us awhile to get things going.”

  • Tiger teams sweep Georgetown at...

    Campbellsville University completed a rare sweep (women’s and men’s basketball plus football in the same season) by taking a pair of basketball games from visiting Georgetown College on Saturday.

    Coach Ginger Colvin’s Lady Tigers (23-1 overall and 8-0 vs. Mid-South Conference foes) started the sweep by racing out to a 54-38 half-time lead behind Wendi Messer’s 22 points and 18 by Whitney Ballinger.

  • CHS wins 20th, 21st while TC...

    Campbellsville won its 20th and 21st games of the season with road wins at Elizabethtown and Bethlehem while Taylor County notched Nos. 14 and 15 with a home victory vs. Grayson County and a road triumph at LaRue County.

    Taylor’s double-double (39 points, 10 rebounds) enables Eagles to win by double digits at E-town

    Bryton Taylor may have missed 11 of his 24 free throws, but the senior guard still managed 39 points as Campbellsville upended Elizabethtown 85-75 on the road Thursday night.

  • Tigers, Lady Tigers increase MSC...

    The Campbellsville University women increased their lead to two games while the CU men broke away from a first-play tie as the No. 8-rated squads posted road wins at Pikeville College on Thursday night.

    The Lady Tigers’ 85-67 triumph coupled with Cumberlands’ loss at Georgetown gave coach Ginger Colvin’s club a two-game lead in the Mid-South Conference race.

  • Cards grab No. 2 district seed

    Taylor County assured itself of the No. 2 seed vs. Adair County in the 20th District Tournament later this month with a 53-46 triumph over visiting Marion County on Friday.

    The Cardinals (13-10) trailed 31-30 going to the fourth quarter after a 16-point fourth quarter by Knight senior Austin Spalding.

    However, Taylor County tallied the first 14 points of the final frame with seniors Tyler Moss, Tevin Webster and Lloyd Stotts scoring 17 TCHS points in the quarter.

  • Pollock joins 1,000-point club...

    Taylor County’s Lady Cardinals won every quarter on Saturday in posting a 68-43 home victory over Cumberland County.

    Mercedes Cox led coach Jenny Jessie’s team (13-10) with 19 points while Hope Wigginton contributed 14 and MeLeigha Pollock.

    With Pollock’s seventh point, she became the Lady Cardinals’ 11th 1,000-point scorer.

    Taylor County visits LaRue County on Friday and plays McCreary Central at Pulaski County on Saturday.

  • Tigers move into MSC first-place...

    The Campbellsville University men downed West Virginia Tech, 83-56, to move back into a first-place tie in the Mid-South Conference.

    The Tigers (17-6, 5-2) dropped from the top spot Monday after losing at home by three points to St. Catharine College with poor shooting and ball control. Thursday was a much different story, as the Tigers impressed their fans at times with their ability to work the ball around the perimeter early.
