North Oldham

  • Boys: Runnin' Rebels outrace North

    Like a horse that struggles to break from the starting gate, the North Oldham boys’ basketball team watched another game slip through their hands after a slow start Tuesday.

    The Mustangs (15-13) fell on their home court to region foe Owen County (23-4), 58-55 after North Oldham’s last minute 3-point attempt fell well short of the basket.

    The fact North was even in the game at the buzzer was a testament to their play, coach Rob Burton said.

    GOSHEN – North Oldham junior Seth Hagan is known more for his rebounding and defense than his scoring.

    But his coach, Rob Burton, has been telling Hagan he’d get his chance to hit a big shot.

    “I actually talked to Seth earlier in the week,” Burton said, “and I said, ‘Be ready, because you’re going to have some moments here.’”

    One such moment came Tuesday night against North Bullitt.

    Jalen Henry cracked up Monday when he was asked how a team might go about guarding his older brother, Jon Jon Henry.

    “I really don’t know,” Jalen said. “I guess you’d have to play him really close, just don’t let him get the ball… But I don’t think you can stop that, really.”

    Not many people have stopped Jon Jon Henry this season.
