Harlan vs. Harlan County (Girls)

13th Region Tournament (Championship)

Corbin Arena

Corbin, KY

March 4, 2017

 

Harlan overcame a lot of adversity this season to even reach the championship game but they overcame all these odds and defeated Harlan County by a score of 59-52.  They graduated two key players from last year, lost another key frontcourt player Emma Bianchi with an injury early in the season and had already lost three games this year to Harlan County.  Harlan star Jordan Brock got off to a cold start from the field but her teammates stepped up until she got back in the flow of the game.

George Rogers Clark vs. Mason County (Girls) 10th Region Tournament (Championship) March 4, 2017

George Rogers Clark vs. Mason County (Girls)

10th Region Tournament (Championship)

Harrison County High School

Cynthiana, KY

March 4, 2017

 

This game will be discussed and argued about as long as girls’ basketball is played in this region.  George Rogers Clark defeated Mason County 56-53 in overtime but the high drama came at the end of regulation.  Mason County rallied from 1 41-29 deficit in the third quarter and actually took a 50-48 lead on a basket with Jordan Frodge with two minutes left on the clock.  GRC’s Kennedy Igo connected on two free throws to knot the score at 50-50 with 1:28 on the clock.  Mason County held the bal for the last shot and thought they had won on a basket by Briana McNutt at the horn.  However the celebration turned to dismay as the basket was waved off on a controversial traveling call with one second remaining in regulation.

 

The game went to overtime and George Rogers Clark took the lead and Mason County was never able to overtake the Lady Cardinals.  George Rogers Clark shot 53.3% from the field including four of 12 from the three point line.  The Lady Cardinals connected on 12 of 16 free throws and pulled down 19 rebounds.  Mason County shot 33.3% from the field including four of 16 from beyond the arc.  The Lady Royals connected on 17 of 21 free throws and pulled down 29 rebounds.

 

5-7 Fr. Kennedy Igo led GRC with 22 points including six of seven free throws.  5-9 Jr. Shemaya Behanan added 13 points and six rebounds.  5-10 So. Malaeha Bell chipped in with eight points.

 

5-9 Sr. Jordan Frodge led Mason County with 15 points including six of seven free throws.  5-9 Sr. Whitney O’Mara added 13 points.  5-5 Jr. AJ Reed chipped in with 11 points. 5-9 Sr. Briana McNutt recorded eight points and 10 rebounds.

 

George Rogers Clark,13,22,8,7,6,56

George Rogers Clark (56) – Igo 22, Behanan 13, Bell 8, Hardiman 5, T. Flowers 3, J. Flowers 5.

 

Mason County (53) – Frodge 15, O’Mara 13, Reed 11, McNutt 8, Boone 6.

Nelson County breaks Elizabethtown’s stranglehold on the region title and improves to 30-3 for the season with a 69-56 victory over the Lady Panthers.  It seemed to be an omen when Nelson County’s Marly Walls threw up a desperation three point shot from half court that found its mark to end the first half.  Nelson County shot 45.5% from the field including five of 15 from the three point line.  The Lady Cardinals connected on 24 of 28 free throws and pulled down 29 rebounds.  Elizabethtown shot 36.7% from the field including five of 21 from beyond the arc.  The Lady Panthers connected on 15 of 21 free throws and pulled down 28 rebounds.

Scott County vs. Lexington Catholic (Boys)

Eastern Kentucky University

Richmond, KY

March 6, 2017

 

Scott County coach Billy Hicks started the following lineup: 6-6 So. Michael Moreno, 6-2 Jr. Cooper Robb, 6-4 Sr. Cooper Watts, 6-0 So. Lorenzo Williams, and 6-1 So.

Scott County utilized a stifling defense to defeat Lexington Catholic 56-44 in a very physical game that featured trainers trying to patch up Lexington Catholic’s Peter Whitman and Luke Johnson and attempting to clean the blood off the floor.  Whitman left first with a cut above the eye and minutes later Johnson left with a busted lip.  Both were able to return to the game.  Scott County led 39-21 late in the third quarter but Lexington Catholic fought back and cut the lead to eight points in the final quarter.

 

Scott County shot 36.2% from the field including two of 10 from the three point line.  The Cardinals connected on 20 of 36 free throws, pulled down 37 rebounds, and scored 17 points off 20 Lexington Catholic turnovers.  Lexington Catholic shot 26.8% from the field including three of eight from beyond the arc.  The Knights connected on 19 of 23 free throws, pulled down 39 rebounds, and scored 10 points off 14 Scott County turnovers.

 

Michael Moreno led Scott County with 20 points including nine of 11 free throws, six rebounds, two assists, three blocked shots, and two steals.  Cooper Robb added 17 points, three rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots, and eight steals.  Lorenzo Williams recorded eight points, seven rebounds, and four assists.  Cooper Watts pulled down eight rebounds.

 

Luke Johnson led Lexington Catholic with 18 points including eight of nine free throws, all in the second half and two blocked shots.  TC Price added nine points and four rebounds.  Zan Payne pulled down 10 rebounds and Peter Whitman pulled down seven rebounds and blocked two shots.
