  • Nuernberger kicking in inaugural CFP

    The teams were going up on the TV screen at Sean Nuernberger’s girlfriend’s apartment at 12:45 p.m. on Dec. 7.

    First the University of Alabama. Then Oregon. Then Florida State.

    There was one slot left to be announced in the inaugural College Football Playoff bracket. Big 12 Conference co-champions Baylor and TCU and Nuernberger’s team, Big 10 Conference champ Ohio State, were the options to fill it.

  • 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.

  • Best in Hoops Classic: Colonels beat St. X, advance to finals

    BUCKNER – Oldham County had done plenty to impress going into its Best in Hoops Tournament this weekend, starting 7-0 and beating all but one opponent by at least 20 points.

    But the Colonels hadn’t shown they could win a close game under heavy pressure from the other team.

    OC won its first such game 67-61 against Central Thursday night, then won another tense contest Saturday in the tournament semifinals.

    St. Xavier cut a 14-point Colonel lead to 32-30 in the third quarter before OC re-gathered and rallied for a 60-48 home win.

  • Boys Basketball: OC gets tested in win vs. Central

    BUCKNER – Oldham County was undefeated and unchallenged heading into its game against Central Thursday night.

    The Yellowjackets changed that, disrupting the Colonels’ offense, leading at halftime and staying close throughout the second half.

    But OC fought through and came out with a hard-fought 67-61 home win in the first round of the Best in Hoops Classic.

    Senior guards Hayden Hawes and Connor Hicks had 14 points each for the Colonels (8-0), who will meet St. Xavier at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the tournament semifinals.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Colonels fall at Anderson

    LAWRENCEBURG – Anderson County's post-game locker room chat took longer than usual last Tuesday.

    Much longer.

    To be sure, Anderson County was happy with its 49-43 win over regional foe Oldham County.

    It was how the Lady Bearcats closed things out – or, more accurately, did not close them out, on the home court at that – that had Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell in less than a jovial mood.

  • Boys Basketball: Colonels reach 100 in blowout of KCD

    BUCKNER – Improved defense led to Oldham County’s best offensive output in nearly 14 years Saturday night.

    The Colonels led Kentucky Country Day 38-36 at halftime before scoring 35 points in the third quarter and running away to a 100-66 home win in the 12th Annual Ronald McDonald House Classic.

    Six OC players scored in double-figures as the Colonels moved to 6-0 on the season.

  • Girls Basketball: Davis, Stewart lead Lady Colonels past Presentation

    BUCKNER – One day after its worst offensive performance of the year, Oldham County had its best Saturday afternoon.

    The Lady Colonels scored their most points of the young season in a 62-44 home win over the Toppers in the 12th Annual Ronald McDonald House Classic.

    OC (2-4) shot 43 percent from the floor and 44 percent from 3-point range against Presentation (2-4).

    Senior wing Jayla Davis scored a game-high 21 points with senior center Abigail Stewart scoring 16.

  • Boys Basketball: Colonels overwhelm Trimble in easy win

    BEDFORD – Oldham County is still undefeated and still rolling.

    The latest obstacle for the Colonels was district foe Trimble County Friday night.

    OC handled the Raiders, forcing a running clock and cruising to a 64-29 road win.

    The Colonels (5-0, 1-0 District 29) have won each of their five games this season by at least 11 points and their last three (wins at University Heights, Anderson County and Trimble) by an average of 29.7 points.
