  • Still time for sauger action

  • Lady Tigers, Tigers sweep LWC in...

    Crazy things happen in Mid-South Conference play. In a month that’s seen an ESPN Top 10 play and buzzer beating wins, one of the most unpredictable performances may be the fourth-ranked Lady Tigers’ 86-58 win at No. 12 Lindsey Wilson College in the Biggers Sports Center on Monday night.
    “With as talented as they are and as well as they’ve been playing, if anybody were to tell me that we’d win by 28, I’d say they were crazy,” CU head coach Ginger Colvin said.

  • Lady Cardinals double up Lady...

    Taylor County’s girls’ and boys’ squads swept a doubleheader from Campbellsville at home on Monday in make-up high school hoop play.

    In girls’ action:
    Brittany Vaught tallied the first hoop for the Lady Eagles, but the Lady Cardinals reeled off 12 straight points and then led 36-19 at half-time en route to a 60-30 victory.
    Taylor County (13-7), which closed the first half on a 6-0 run, scored the first 13 points of the second half before Heather Watson’s top-of-the-key three-pointer ended the 19-0 run.

  • Second-half rallies favor TC...

    Taylor County’s boys’ hoopsters came back from a five-point deficit in the third quarter to defeat visiting Green County 60-52 on Thursday night. However, the Lady Cardinals could not hold a seven-point, second-half advantage and fell 41-34 in the opener.
    The Cardinals used a 15-2 run to overcome a 28-23 Dragon lead as seniors Trae Wells (six) and Tevin Webster (four) tallied 10 points in the rally and TCHS hit eight of its first nine free throws in the fourth quarter to build a 55-41 cushion.

  • Crappie pro offers fishing tips

    When crappie fishing from a boat, is it better to push your lines or pull your baits? Why use all the same rods? Why number them? Why fish the rods out the front of the boat when trolling rather than the sides?
    These were some of the questions that Bill Braswell, a former Kentucky conservation officer, answered at a recent Crappie Master seminar at Bass Pro Shops store in Orlando, Fla. His tournament trail fishing partner, Dan Dannenmueller, also provided information and answers during the seminar.
