  • Girls Basketball: Lady Dragons...

    CRESTWOOD – The home team’s first game at the South Oldham Lady Dragon Hoop Fest on Friday didn’t go how it had hoped.

    Central overwhelmed South with a 22-6 first quarter and cruised to a 64-40 win in first round action.

    The Lady Dragons (3-3) will play Barren County Saturday afternoon in a second-round loser’s bracket game.

    Central (4-1) turned South over a staggering 42 times, meaning the Lady Dragons tallied two more turnovers than points.

  • Boys Basketball: OC gets tested...

    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.

  • Boys Basketball: Henry breaks...

    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.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Mustangs...

    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.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Colonels...

    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.

  • Levitch seeing bigger role for...

    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.

  • Boys Basketball: Trimble’s...

    CRESTWOOD – Minutes after his team beat Trimble County by 35 points Friday, Oldham County coach Coy Zerhusen said the Raiders would “surprise some people in a couple of games this year.”

    Zerhusen’s prediction came true three nights later.

    Center Michael Dunaway scored 33 points and Trimble stunned South Oldham 65-53 Monday night on the Dragons’ home court.

    It was the Raiders’ first win against South since a 59-56 victory on Dec. 15, 2000 – nine games into coach Steve Simpson’s first season in Crestwood.
