  • Boys Basketball: Henry breaks school scoring record in North win

    GOSHEN – Under normal circumstances, North Oldham coach Rob Burton would’ve had Jon Jon Henry out the game long before the fourth quarter.

    The Mustangs were well on their way to their first win, leading District 29 foe Trimble County 70-39 heading into the fourth.

    But Henry was in the midst of something special and Burton said he wanted to give him the chance to finish it.

    So the coach left his senior guard out on the floor to try to break David Levitch’s school single-game scoring record.

    GOSHEN – North Oldham went into its game against Atherton 2-2 but yet to play a close game.

    So when Lady Rebel forward Jasmine Lewis knocked down two free throws to trim North’s lead to 52-50 with less than two minutes to play Tuesday, Lady Mustangs coach Dan Pfaff wanted to see how his team would respond.

    North got the job done, holding on for a 62-56 win behind 24 points from junior guard Cat Fiorito. Fiorito hit all eight free throws she took in the final minute to seal the victory.

  • Levitch seeing bigger role for No. 4 Cards

    Facing a pesky Marshall University team last month, Louisville coach Rick Pitino was looking for a second-half lineup that could put the game away.

    Pitino turned to Cardinals regulars like Wayne Blackshear, Chris Jones and Montrezl Harrell.

    He also turned to walk-on sophomore guard David Levitch.

    The former North Oldham star played 15 minutes, scoring six points and grabbing two steals in what turned out to be an 85-67 U of L win.
