    Sophomore Courtney Danis and freshman Jarobia Hill had 16 points apiece to lead Campbellsville University, and the 13th ranked Lady Tigers cruised to a 96-64 win at Midway College on Thursday.

    Campbellsville jumped out to a 5-0 lead before Midway could get untracked and the Lady Eagles took a 9-8 lead with about 15:00 to play in the first half.  From that point, Campbellsville used its size advantage and built a 22-point half-time lead en route to the 32-point win.

  • Adair downs TC 51-45

    Adair County won the fourth frame 13-6 to down previously-unbeaten Taylor County 51-45 on the Cardinals’ home court on Friday night.

    The Cardinals raced out to a 9-3 lead as Lloyd Stotts had an up-and-under follow, a right-wing three-pointer and a left baseline jumper.

    However, the Indians crept within two at 11-9 by using a 6-2 run of their own.

    Tyler Moss’ 30-foot three-pointer to end the first frame put Taylor County back up 18-13 and the Cardinal lead grew to nine (22-13) on two straight Michael Coulter lay-ups.

    The advantage grew to 32-20 on a right-wing three-pointer and a lay-up by Morris, but CHS could manage only a basket and were 2-7 in free throws over the final 12 minutes.

  • TCHS girls fall to Adair 32-28.

    Coach Jenny Jessie’s Taylor County Lady Cardinals hit 13 of 14 first-half free throws to build a 20-12 cushion, but did not attempt a single second-half charity toss and dropped a 32-28 decision to visiting Adair County on Friday night.

    Adair County (2-2 overall and 1-1 in district play) used three D.J. Ballou baskets to cut the deficit to two (24-22) at the third-quarter stop and took the lead with baskets by McKenzie Martin and Chelsea Beard to start the final eight minutes.

  • Cardinals outlast home Eagles 68...

    Taylor County did not expect a "walk in the park" and, despite jumping out to a 17-point advantage, had to battle cross-town rival Campbellsville to the end before posting a 68-60 triumph in Paul J. coop Gymnasium.

    "We knew it would be a tough game," said Cardinal coach Troy Young whose team improves to 3-0. "We didn't expect to come over here and walk over them.

    "We knew it would a physical game and it was."

    Lloyd Stotts and Michael Coulter nailed a pair of three-pointers, which ignited the Cardinals to their early 25-8 lead.

    Taylor County’s Lady Cardinals used a 20-11 fourth quarter to overcome Meade County 54-46 at home on Thursday night.

    The Lady Waves fought back to a 24-24 deadlock at halftime and led 35-34 heading to the final eight minutes.

    However, Taylor County took the lead for good on Wigginton’s left base-line trey and used a Rucker three, her fifth of the night, to lead 45-40.

  • Lady Cards jump out early, take...

    It appeared to be another typical easy win in the Taylor County-Campbellsville girls' basketball series as the Lady Cardinals led by eight (15-7) in the second quarter and held a 34-25 advantage on Megan Peake's basket that started the fourth quarter.

    However, the Lady Eagles used nine of 10 free throws and a Brittany Vaught bucket to knot the score at 36-36 with 2:37 remaining.

    Campbellsville first-year coach Cameron Jackson was extremely pleased with his team's effort.

  • Tigers survive late score, hold...

    Zach Allender led three Tiger players in double figure scoring as Campbellsville University survived a late rally by Urbana University to win its fourth game in a row on Monday 70-64 in the Tigers' annual game at Gallatin County High School in Warsaw.

    The Blue Knights used a slow down style offense for much of the game until the Tigers were able to sprint out to a 57-42 lead with 3:21 remaining in the game.  At that point, Urbana went into a full court pressure defense and a more aggressive offense but never pulled closer than a five-point margin.
