  • Looking to the future

    When the Lady Tigers took the floor Thursday morning for a first-round match-up in the 29th Annual Women's NAIA Division 1 Basketball National Championship Tournament, coach Ginger Colvin was in familiar surroundings.

    Colvin's history with the Lady Tigers in Jackson, Tenn. dates back to 1990 when she was a senior guard for then Campbellsville College. The second-year coach tied up some loose ends of a trifecta of sorts ... trips to the national tournament as a player, assistant coach and head coach.

    Ginger Colvin was a starting point guard for Campbellsville University in the NAIA Division 1 Women's Basketball Championship and was an assistant on NAIA Hall of Fame Lady Tiger coach Donna Wise's staff for several trips to Jackson, Tenn.

    However, today she will guide her first team to the national tourney when the Lady Tigers battle Columbia (Mo.) in a first-round game at 10 this morning.

    The 32-team tourney began yesterday with two other teams (University of the Cumberlands and Lindsey Wilson College) from the Mid-South Conference also in the field.

    Taylor County High School's season ended on Sunday afternoon with a 57-56 heart-breaking loss to North Hardin in the Fifth Region Tournament semifinals at Marion County High School.

    The Cardinals (24-7) had tied the score at 56-56 on Chase Cox's 35-foot right-wing three-pointer with 7.1 seconds left. However, jubilation quickly turned to despair when Jordan Bramblett was fouled before midcourt at 0.8 seconds and awarded three shots, hitting the third, to pin the loss on Taylor County.
