SHELBYVILLE – Oldham County had plenty of motivation heading into its game Friday against Shelby County.
The Colonels, ranked No. 14 in the state, were playing a fellow Region 8 contender in front of a big road crowd in perhaps the region’s most storied rivalry.
Then came the fact the Rockets chose this game as their basketball Homecoming.
“At first we were kind of confused why they would have us in on Homecoming night,” senior guard Connor Hicks said. “(Coach Coy Zerhusen) said that was going to be a mistake.”
