    When South Oldham coach Steve Simpson started the team’s Christmas break tournament last year, he wanted to name the event each year after a different person who was important to the school.

  • Best in Hoops Tournament finals: Eastern too much for OC

    BUCKNER – After watching Oldham County win its first nine games, future opponents got a glimpse of what it takes to beat the Colonels on Sunday.

    Unfortunately for those teams, they don’t have the combination of Cameron Reed, a 6-foot-6 wing who can shoot-and-make from anywhere on the floor, Jonathan Lane, a power forward with a 7-foot wingspan and Trey Moses, a 6-9 center who takes away the paint.

    That’s the buzz saw OC ran into against Eastern in the Best in Hoops Tournament finals Sunday night.
