Story from Mark Hardin - NKY.com

Boone County senior Cooper Downs was fouled with 11.2 seconds remaining in the Rebels’ 54-49 Ninth Region boys’ basketball tournament championship game victory over Newport Central Catholic on Sunday at Bank of Kentucky Center. He broke into a smile as he walked to the free-throw line.

“Right at that moment, it hit me,” Downs said. “There was 11 seconds left on the clock and we’re up by five and I’m at the line. I knew we could seal it.”

Downs stepped to the line and sank two foul shots for the Rebels’ 12th consecutive converted free throw in the final quarter, giving Boone County a seven-point lead. Moments later, at the sound of the final buzzer, the Rebels’ bench ran to greet their teammates at mid-court to celebrate Boone County’s first regional title since 1996.

“I was two the last time it happened, so it’s been a long time,” said Boone senior Zane McQueary, who finished with a team-high 14 points and was named tournament most valuable player. “It’s a dream come true for us; several years in the works, beginning with the guys who came before us. Playing in Rupp Arena is going to be great.”

McQueary, the lone Boone County starter taller than 6 feet, will play for the first time on the University of Kentucky’s Rupp Arena floor when the Rebels take on the 14th Region champion at 1:30 p.m. March 15 in the first round of the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 state tournament in Lexington. The 14th Region title game is Tuesday.

Other heroes for Boone on Sunday were Chase Stanley, who scored 11 points, and Keenan Palmer, who added nine. Palmer was an early spark with eight in the first quarter. Downs finished with seven points. Boone converted 18 of 20 free throws in the game. Downs and Palmer were named to the all-tournament team.

Boone coach Greg McQueary said the victory was a team effort. When he was asked about his key players, he named nearly every one on the roster.

“I’m excited, because I’ve been on that other bench too many times and not won,” the coach said. “I went to the (state tournament) as a player for Taylor County in 1983. I was a junior. But I’ve never been as a coach.”

Boone, the top-ranked team in the final Enquirer Northern Kentucky coaches’ poll, got past the regional semifinal after three straight years advancing that far and improved its record to 27-7. NewCath, ranked seventh, finished 22-9 and runner-up for the second year in a row.

The Rebels took control early, surging to an 11-point second-quarter lead after a 1-for-7 first-quarter shooting performance by the Thoroughbreds. NewCath cut it to one in the third behind freshman center Drew McDonald, who finished with 14 points, and tied it at 33 on a 3-pointer by Zach Ryan.

Downs gave Boone the lead for good on a trey with 5:35 to play. NewCath’s Brady Hightchew drove the lane for a basket but McQueary drilled a 3 and Stanley hit a pair of free throws to push the lead back to six with 3:39 left.

“They got up on us early and we had to fight back,” said coach Grant Brennen, who was trying to lead the ’Breds to their first regional crown since 2000. “We tied it and had a chance in the open court and Brady and Zach got tangled up going for the ball and we lost it. After a play like that, you just shake your head and say, it’s not to be.”

Michael Bueter led the ’Breds with 17 points. Hightchew and Jake Schulte were named all-tournament but Hightchew was limited to seven points Sunday, five below his average, and Schulte was held scoreless.

Story from Mark Hardin - NKY.com

It was such a special season for Lloyd that the Juggernauts did not want it to end.

But Boone County had other ideas and stopped Lloyd’s surprising postseason run with a 50-41 victory in Saturday’s second semifinal of the Ninth Region tournament at Bank of Kentucky Center.

Lloyd won a district championship for the first time in 13 years and upset defending regional champion Dixie Heights in the process, then beat Highlands in the first round of the regional for its first win since 1996. Boone County, in the regional for the sixth time in nine years, was impressed with the Juggernauts’ late-season run.

“They got hot at the right time,” Boone coach Greg McQueary said.

The Rebels had no intention of letting it continue because they believe they can win the region with their band of guards. Boone will play Newport Central Catholic in Sunday’s 1 p.m. final.

“You get there enough, you get a chance to get past it,” McQueary said of Boone’s fourth consecutive regional semifinal appearance. “The big key (in the final) is we got to make shots and we got to rebound. They (the Thoroughbreds) are going to be bigger than we are.”

Boone, with just one starter standing taller than 6 feet, held a bigger Lloyd squad to 34.9 percent shooting (15-for-43) from the floor and outrebounded the Juggernauts, 31-19. Zane McQueary, a 6-6 Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference first-team selection, led all scorers with 18 points and Reenan Palmer pulled down a game-high nine rebounds.

Boone led by 11 in the second quarter but Lloyd tied it at 26 midway through the third. The Rebels’ responded with a free throw and a basket in transition by McQueary to end the third up by three. McQueary’s jumper early in the fourth and an ensuing free throw completed a 7-0 Boone run to begin the quarter and the Rebels’ lead was back to 10.

“I think the biggest thing is we went on one of those counter runs,” Zane McQueary said.

JaKeith Pitts scored 13 points and had three steals for the Rebels. Boone converted 15 of 20 free-throw attempts and made 11 of 14 from the line in the fourth. Tyler Bray led Lloyd with 11 points and keyed a 9-0 Juggernauts third-quarter run that helped tie the score.

“I think (free throws) were a big factor,” said Zane McQueary, who finished 4-for-5 from the line. Cooper Downs shot 4-for-4 on foul shots and finished with seven points.

Boone made just one three-pointer while concentrating on the drive-and-dish. Lloyd, which relied on the 3-pointer all season, shot 6-for-24 from behind the arc.

“We had a miserable shooting (performance),” Juggernauts coach Mike Key said. “But they saw that if they just competed, good things will happen.”

Story from Mark Hardin - NKY.com

When the final buzzer sounded, wrapping up Newport Central Catholic’s 52-38 Ninth Region tournament semifinal victory over Cooper on Saturday at Bank of Kentucky Center, both school’s cheering sections stood and applauded.

NewCath fans clapped as the Thoroughbreds made it back to the final for the second year in a row, this time without last season’s Enquirer Northern Kentucky player of the year, Jake Giesler.

“It’s an amazing accomplishment,” said Thoroughbreds senior Brady Hightchew who scored his 1,000th career point against Cooper on the way to a game-high 16 and six assists. “I’m so proud of the team because we worked hard.”

NewCath (22-8) seeks its first regional title in 11 years in today’s 1 p.m. final against Boone County. The ’Breds lost last year’s final to Dixie Heights in quadruple-overtime. Cooper finishes the season 16-15.

“Anytime you go back-to-back to the regional final is important,” said coach Grant Brannen, who was an assistant under Ron Dawn when NewCath last won the region in 2001. “But we’re not satisfied getting there again. We want to to win it.”

NewCath, ranked seventh in the final Enquirer Northern Kentucky coaches’ poll, ended 10th-ranked Cooper’s season with a clamp-down on the perimeter. The Jaguars shot 1-for-12 from 3-point range and 13-for-34 (38.2 percent) overall while the ’Breds shot 51.2 percent (20-for-39).

“Coach told me and Zach Ryan not to let their shooters put the ball on the floor,” said Hightchew, who held A.J. Collins to four points.

Jake Schulte scored 13 points for NewCath and Michael Bueter added 10.

Cooper supporters cheered the end of the most successful season in the Jaguars’ four-year history. Cooper posted its first winning season under coach Tim Sullivan, won its first district title and its first regional tournament game. Junior center Louis Maniacci led the Jaguars Saturday with 15 points.

Senior Alex Webster has been with Cooper from the beginning. He endured a 2-25 first season and a 17-game losing streak as a freshman and a 5-25 season as a sophomore. When Webster fouled out in the fourth quarter and headed to the end of the bench, Sullivan stopped him and gave him a long hug.

“Our seniors are special, but he is the heart and soul of what we’re all about,” Sullivan said of Webster, who was held to four points. “He took the team this year and put them on his back. He took us on a real special ride.”

Story from Richard Skinner - NKY.com

Lloyd (16-15), which upset Dixie Heights to win the 33rd District title, got 23 points from senior forward Tyler Bray, including a tiebreaking three-pointer with 4:20 left to defeat Highlands 42-39 in Thursday’s other quarterfinal. It’s the first time Lloyd has advanced to the semifinal round since finishing as regional runner-up in 1996, according to head coach Mike Key.

The high-flying Bray, who was the Class AA state high jump champion last year, poured in 10 first-quarter points, including a one-handed dunk off a lob helping the Juggernauts to a 14-7 lead.

Lloyd, which has won seven of its last eight games after a 9-14 start to the season, held a 30-22 lead early in the fourth quarter before Highlands (10-19) went on an 8-0 run and tied the score at 30-30 on senior guard Samson Lewis’ three-pointer from the left corner with 5:50 remaining.

Bray then made his tiebreaking three, but Lloyd didn’t put the game away until it made two free throws in the final nine seconds and had to withstand a desperation three from beyond midcourt at the buzzer.

“I don’t think we played particularly well, we didn’t really execute, but our kids played with great poise and played really, really hard,” said Key. “They just toughed through some things. The kids just kind of persevered.”

The Juggernauts will face Boone County (25-7), who advanced to at least the semifinal round for the fourth straight season by defeating Holmes, 51-43, in Thursday night's other quarterfinal.

Bray had nine of his points in the final quarter.

“He really showed up tonight,” said Key. “Anybody that’s been around Ninth Region basketball knows he’s an athlete. What he didn’t have was that basketball skill that you just have to develop. It just takes time and he’s finally starting to develop it. He’s starting to make basketball plays rather than just athlete plays. That’s really turned it around for him and it’s turned it around for us.”

Story from Richard Skinner - NKY.com

Boone County is in a familiar place of late in the Ninth Region tournament thanks to its offensive patience, while it’s been a long time since its next opponent has advanced as far as it has.

Boone County got 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists from junior forward Zane McQueary, and made 18 of 19 free throws, including all 14 it took in the fourth quarter, to hold off Holmes, 51-43, in a quarterfinal game of the Ninth Region tournament on Thursday night at Bank of Kentucky Center.

The Rebels (25-7), who advanced to at least the semifinal round for the fourth straight season, will face the surprise team of the postseason, Lloyd, at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Boone County, which beat Holmes 61-51 on Feb. 7, started sluggishly in its win as it had a hard time executing against the Bulldogs’ 2-3 zone defense. Part of the reason was the defense kept the ball from getting into the hands of Boone County’s leading scorer Zane McQueary, who is averaging 18.9 points per game and had 21 points in the earlier meeting.

The Rebels trailed 12-8 after one quarter and the 6-foot-5 McQueary didn’t score for the almost the 14 minutes of the game. His first basket came as he was being fouled and he made the subsequent free throw to put Boone County on top for good at 18-17. He followed it up with an assist and then another basket to give the Rebels a 22-15 lead.

“The first time we played them they didn’t zone us, but we knew they would this time,” said Boone County coach Greg McQueary, Zane’s father. “I felt if we could the ball to Zane they would converge on him and it would open some guys up. The first six minutes he didn’t get very many touches and after we were able to get him the ball, he drew the defense and he’s a pretty good passer and we were able to score. Once we made the adjustment we did a better job. I think we relaxed finally once we got a couple of buckets.”

Boone County, which beat Holmes in the first round last season after losing to the Bulldogs in the 2010 semifinals and 2009 championship game, extended the lead to 33-24 through three quarters and then 35-24 early in the fourth quarter.

Holmes closed within 47-43 on B.J. Coston’s three-pointer with 39 seconds left, but got no closer.

“We had a pretty good idea they were going to try to take me away,” said Zane McQueary. “I had to tell myself this is the scouting report, and this is what we’ve been practicing three days on and eventually it will happen. As long as somebody’s scoring and making the play, that’s the key right there.”

Story from Richard Skinner - NKY.com

In NewCath’s win it survived having standout senior guard Brady Hightchew on the bench for almost the entire first half with two fouls and got a big game from 6-foot-6 sophomore center Jake Schulte and a solid performance from 6-6 freshman Drew McDonald. CovCath had only one player over 6-2 to battle them, and that was 6-5 junior center Zack Tobler, who sat out much of the second quarter with two fouls and picked up two more fouls in the third quarter, which limited his playing time.

“The key was when Tobler picked up his second foul and the size advantage for us was big when we had Schulte and McDonald in there at the same time,” said NewCath coach Grant Brannen. “We started pounding it inside. We were patient I think for the first time all year.”

Hightchew then scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half.

Story from Richard Skinner - NKY.com

It had been 54 years between Ninth Region boys’ basketball championships for Dixie Heights when it won last season, but it’s taken Cooper just four years as a program to move within two wins of its first after bouncing the defending champion Colonels Wednesday night.

Junior center Louis Maniacci scored eight of his 19 points in a 10-0 fourth quarter spurt that pushed Cooper from a 38-36 lead to a 48-36 advantage, and the Jaguars went on to pull away for a 56-43 quarterfinal victory at Bank of Kentucky Center.

 

Cooper (16-14), which avenged a 59-48 regular-season loss to Dixie, will face last year’s Ninth Region runner-up, Newport Central Catholic, in a 1 p.m. semifinal game on Saturday. NewCath (21-8) advanced with a 59-41 win over Covington Catholic in Wednesday’s other quarterfinal.

Cooper coach Tim Sullivan said he knows people around the state will be quite surprised at seeing the final score.

“This is what we’ve been working for four years and what we’ve built the foundation of our program on, which is getting in your face and guarding people,” said Sullivan. “I don’t know if it’s fun to watch, but its’ fun as heck to coach.”

Dixie (20-11), which has lost its three games against Ninth Region opponents after winning 31 of its previous 32 against regional foes the last two seasons, struggled to consistently get good shots against Cooper’s hard-nosed half court man-to-man defense. Still, the Colonels got within 38-36 with 5:20 remaining when sophomore guard Brandon Hatton swished a three-pointer at the top of the key behind a double screen. Hatton finished with 16 of his 18 points in the second half, including all 11 of Dixie’s third-quarter points, many on tough shots in traffic.

“Brandon is a phenomenal player,” said Sullivan. “I think that just goes to show the toughness of our kids and the ability to just keep grinding every possession out and making him try to score. You saw what happened late, because of all a sudden there was an in-and-out here and an in-and-out there and I truly believe that was just our guys willing to grind every possession defensive that it just wears on people.”

Just moments before Hatton’s three, the 6-foot-7 Maniacci had picked up the fourth and fifth fouls on Dixie’s 6-foot-5 senior Brandon Hatton within 30 seconds of each other.

With Stansberry out of the game, Maniacci went to work, tallying the final eight points of the key 10-0 run that put the game away.

“That was huge getting Parker to foul out,” said Sullivan. “A goal of ours was to get paint touches and go right at them and get into that bench, and we really thought then we could get the ball and go right to the rim. It’s a credit to Louis he went right to the rim and didn’t shoot those fadeaway jump shots.”

Cooper also got a huge lift from junior guard A.J. Collins, who led all scorers with 23 points, including 19 in the second half and 12 in the third quarter alone when he made four straight three-pointers.

“The last month he’s kind of hit a cold streak,” said Sullivan. “The last two days in practice he had been hitting and we said if he can hit a couple of shots it will open things up for Louis down low.”

The loss marked a disappointing end for Dixie, which returned three starters from last year’s regional championship team and added standout sophomore guard Jordan Fox as a transfer.

“We knew we were sitting on a great opportunity thus year with the returning players we had from last year’s team and really felt like we were going to be one of the top teams in the region and we were,” said Dixie coach Ken Chevalier. “To go out in the first round of the regional tournament as well as lose in the district final … it’s frustrating, it really is.”

ERLANGER KY: What a great game. The banner in the gym says 1999 for their last District Championship. They last made the region in Coach Key's first year which was 2006-07. For once, we weren't the last ones out of the gym last night as they continued to celebrate this one. They may not have won their own tournament at Christmas, they didn't win the All "A", but they took a big leap with this win over Dixie. The Dixie Highway rivalry may have gotten bigger now.

Dixie would take the lead and not give it up until the 5 minute mark in the second quarter when Tyler Bray hit a jumper, giving Lloyd Memorial it's first lead at 17-16. This would be a huge look at things to come as the game went on. The game would be tied at 23 going into halftime. It seemed that everytime Dixie would make a run, Lloyd would come right back. Dixie led by as many as 8 in the first half, before the Juggernauts would come back to tie at halftime.

Our hats off to the Colonels as well. Williams was face guarding Hatton, but that didn't stop him from his 27 points. Fox showed he can step up and run the team when needed. Stansberry was a little quiet but made a few three pointers in the early going. Wigger hit a couple of threes in the second half. They will do well next week.

There's a lot of parity in the Region this year. It will be a fun week of ball at the Bank of Kentucky Center. Both teams will advance to Sunday morning's draw at the Bank of Kentucky Center.

All of K.T. Williams 12 points came from behind the arc. The 4th quarter belonged to Bray. 16 of his 25 points came in the 4th quarter including 7-8 from the FT line in the 4th then the huge 3 with 1.4 seconds to go.

Midway through the second period, WV's Matt Hargett picked up a loose ball and dunked it to go up 25-20.  Then the Braves went on a 4-0 run. GC then had the ball to extend the run,  But WV's Tanner Moeves grabbed what would look like a huge opportunity for a four point play.
Moeves stole the ball and was about to score when GC's Austin Johnson went to defend what looked like a shot attempt, instead Johnson was called for an intentional foul.  Moeves missed both free throws and WV did not convert after the inbounds pass.  The score stayed 25-24 at the intermission.
Grant County head coach Jim Hicks did not see the call, but expressed his opinion, "It is what it is.  The basketball angel looked out for us," Hicks said laughingly.  "We tell our kids, 'Officiating is uncontrollable.' I thought the officials let both teams play."
When the teams came out in the second half, Grant County went on an 11 point run to take a double digit lead, 35-25.  But the Bearcats went on an 11 point run of its own to regain the lead.  The game played out like this to the end with Grant County upsetting the visiting team.
The Braves senior guard Trevor Hunt led all scoring with a double-double, he had 21 points and 10 boards and sophomore guard Tyler Carr added 16 points.
"They beat us three times in a row and we beat them tonight," said Hunt.  "[It's} definitely an upset.  We proved everybody wrong."
The Braves will host the number one seeded Simon Kenton Pioneers Friday night at Grant County High School.

ALEXANDRIA, KY: Calvary Christian has not had the best of years in the 2011-12 season. Coming into the 37th District Tournament, the Cougars had just 1 win. Things start over during tournament time, everyone starts over at 0-0. The Cougars made the best of that, when the game started against Silver Grove on Monday night in the opening game of the 37th District Tournament.

Calvary Christian would jump out to a 10-6 lead after the first quarter with 4 points each from John Turner and Nick Whitt. Jake Lamb, the leading scorer for the Cougars received a technical foul and sat for most of the first half, but Nick Whitt put the Cougars on his back and led them through.

Silver Grove outscored the Cougars 16-15 in the second quarter as Trains leading scorer Chris Lambert came alive with 5 points. Christian Pollitt added a three pointer as well for the Trains. Whitt paced the Cougars in the second quarter with 7 of the 15 points and the Cougars big man Travis Theaderman added 4 as the Cougars took a 25-22 lead into the locker room.

The third quarter saw the same result as the second as Silver Grove continued to chip away at the lead. By quarters end, with was a 2 point game 38-36. Billy Miller added 6 points for the Grove and Nick Whitt punched in another 6 for Calvary in the 3rd frame.

The 4th quarter saw 4 lead changes and 3 ties as Silver Grove would take the lead early in the quarter. It went back and forth for 8 minutes like that, but a last second shot failed by Silver Grove as Calvary Christina would go on to win the game at the buzzer 59-58. Calvary would shoot 24 free throws in the 4th quarter alone, connecting on 12 of them.

HEBRON, KY: It was senior night in Hebron as the Holmes Bulldogs came in to take on the Conner Cougars.

Holmes had a hot hand coming into the game, coming off an overtime win against Newport Central Catholic in Ot and it carried over to the game Tuesday night as the trio of Dontel Rice, Chris Engelmon, Daquan Palmer and James Bolden took the game into their hands as the Bulldogs jumped out to a 25-9 first quarter lead and never looked back.

Conner's leading scorer, Sam Hennerich went down in the early part of the quarter and would not return.

Balanced scoring by Conner in the second quarter and by DaQuan Palmer from Holmes made up the offense in the second as Holmes would extend their lead to 43-25 going into the locker room at the half.

Conner would outscore Holmes 21-20 in the third frame as Carter Byrns added 11 of the 21 points, while Palmer would punch in 8 more for the Bulldogs making the score 63-46 going into the 4th quarter.

Holmes would put the game away in the 4th quarter, outscoring the Cougars 16-11 to take the 79-57 win, giving the Bulldogs one of their season goals, a 20 win season as they improve to 20-6 on the year.

Dontel Rice led all scorers for Holmes with 21 points, while Carter Byrns paced Conner with 15.

DaQuan Palmer had taught a clinic in the first 3 quarters, giving himself 20 points and his effort garnered him our seventh Custom Trophy & Apparel Player of the Game.

Our Sixth Custom Trophy & Apparel Player Of the Game

 

 

BELLEVUE, KY: As the regular season comes to the close, we normally talk about seniors in their final games. From what I saw last night, we shuld be talking about the freshmen and underclassmen that start to make a stand and say "it's my time now too".

That's what I saw last night at Bellevue as Freshman Austin Woodyard who started in his 4th varsity game, came to play. As we broadcast our firsy Calvary Christian Cougar game as they came to Ben Flora Gymnasium on Tuesday night to take on the Bellevue Tigers.

The first quarter saw Woodyard set the tone of the game by pouring in 8 of the Tigers 18 first quarter points as the Tigers took an 18-13 lead after the first 8 minutes. Calvary came back from being down 6-0 to cut the deficit to 5 at quarter end. Jake Lamb paced the Cougard with 6 points in the quarter.

The second quarter saw balanced scoring from 5 Tigers as the lead was extended to 11 at the half, 35-24. John Moran led the Cougars with 6 points in the second .

Turnovers were the story of the game and eventually Calvary's undoing. Although I don't have a total, they were many and the points that Bellevue was abe to capitalize with put the game out of reach. An 11 point output by Brandon Hoffman ion the 4th quarter sealed the deal for the Tigers as they went on to win the game 72-42.

Jake Lamb led the Cougars with 14 points. Austin Woodyard and Brandon Hoffman both led all scorers for Bellevue with 16 points each.

Austin Woodyard set the pace for the Tigers in the first quarter had 16 points and 13 reboundstotal for the game. For his efforts, he was given our 6th Custom Trophy & Apparel Player of the Game award.

FRANKFORT, KY: It was 1999.....the last time that Holy Crossw made it to the All "A" Classic. They have never been to the finals, but they find themselves 32 minutes away from the title with a game against Bardstown standing between them and the hardware.

Holy Cross would take an early 6-0 lead before Bardstown would come back to eventually cut the Indians lead to just 2 points by the end of the first quarter. Led by Jake Burger's 6 points, the Indians would force 5 Bardstown turnovers. The Indians would take a 14-12 lead after the first quarter.

Bardstown would take the lead in the second quarter as they would outscore the Indians by a 18-13 margin as they took a 30-27 lead into the locker room. The Indians would force another 5 Bardstown turnovers but would not be able to capitalize those into points.

Bardstown would hold Holy Cross to 3 points coming out of the locker room on the way to a 42-30 3rd quarter score. The Indians shot 1-14 for just 7% in the quarter.

Holy Cross would go on a 7 point run to cut the lead to 5 coming into the 4th quarter. It would end up being a 22 point quarter for the Indians as they outscored Bardstown, 22-9. The end of the game was outstanding. Anthony Myrks would hit a layup to break a 49-49 tie with 2 seconds left, 51-49. A long pass from the Indians State Champion Football Quarterback Kyle Fuller put the ball 3/4 the way down the floor, but a Bardstown player touched the ball as it went out of bounds. Travis Thompson would inbound the ball to Jake Fuller who put up an off balanced three point shot with 1.8 seconds to go and banked it in as time expired. The Holy Cross Indians were crowned 2012 All "A" Classic State Champions.

FRANKFORT, KY:During the football season, we did not get the opportunity to broadcast the Owen County/Holy Cross Game. We make up for that tonight as we are able to present the video of the Owen County/Holy Cross Game in the second round of the 2012 Boys All "A" Classic State Tournament. Owen County hasn't seen the semifinals since 1996, Holy Cross since 1995, so both teams are due.

Holy Cross came out a bit flat in the first quarter, shooting just 21% (3-14) to Owen County's 60% (6-10). Owen County also had 3 blocked shots in the first quarter to take a 12-7 lead after the first period.

Holy Cross came back and reversed the trend in the second quarter, outscoring the Rebels 16-9 in the second frame. For the half, Owen County had shot 62.5% from the free throw line, where as Holy Cross had yet to shoot a free throw. Jake Burger led the Indians with 9 points at the half, while Stone Osborne paced the Rebels with 8 points. 9 Rebel turnovers in the half turned into 11 points for the Indians in the first 16 minutes.

Holy Cross would extend their lead to 6 by the end of the 3rd quarter. Jake Burger led the Indians with 7 of the 11 points in the third frame. The Holy Cross press really didn't bother the Rebels that much, but 4 more turnovers added to 6 of the Holy Cross points in the quarter.

In the end, it was the ball just not falling through the basket. The Rebels did a good job in keeping Tony Campbell away from the ball and they were crashing the boards, but the ball just would not fall. Holy Cross would extend the lead to 13 points and move on to the Semi-finals with a 48-35 final score.

1/26/12 - 2012 All "A" Classic - Boys Day 1

 

 

A great night for our local teams in their first day of competition in the 2012 All "A" Classic in Frankfort. Holy Cross represented the 9th Region well with a 57-47 win over Barbourville. Owen County definately had the largest fan base that we saw tonight and that helped the Rebels to a 56-37 win over Buckhorn. Bishop Brossart and Louisville Collegiate went to an extra frame after tying the game at 49 at the end of regulation, but the Titans proved to be just that much more than the Mustangs as Brossart fell 57-52 in OT.

Tonight's results make the Northern Kentucky teams of the 8th, 9th and 10th regions go 5-6 for the first round of games. Holy Cross will take on Owen County in a rematch of the 2011 Football Playoffs with the Rebels looking for a little payback. That game will be at 8:00pm. We will have complete game video of the game right here on the webpage along with pictures as well.

CRESTVIEW HILLS, KY: When I attend a basketball game, I hope for the type of atmosphere that I saw on Tuesday night as Lloyd Memorial came down Dixie Highway to face the Dixie Heights Colonels. Both teams swere undefeated in District Play. The winner, more than likely would garner the number 1 seed in the 34th District tournament that will be played at Lloyd Memorial this year.

Both teams came out firing in the first quarter. Both teams made 3 three pointers. for Dixie, Parker Stansberry dropped in 2 while Nick Niehaus added another, for Lloyd, KT Williams drained a couple and Tyler Bray added another as both teams were tied at 14 after the first quarter.

Brandon Hatton found something in the second quarter, adding 8 points in the frame, while Lloyd Memorial mixed it up, addiing 2 more three poiinters and going 7-8 from the free throw line to stay within 2 points at the half, 33-31.

Dixie Heights would start to pull away in the third quarter. after being tied at 40, the Colonels would go on an 8-2 run by the end of the quarter it would be a 6 point lead for Dixie at the end of the third quarter, 48-42.

That lead would increase to 15, but the Juggernauts would come back. Their first 4 made baskets in the 4th quarter would be three pointers and Lloyd would tie the game again with about a minute and a half to go. A couple of costly turnovers and some greatly timed free throws by the Colonels would give them a 60-58 win over Lloyd.

Brandon Hatton was given our Custom Trophy & Apparel player of the game for his 25 point effort to lead all scorers.

Story from Kevin Kelly, NKY.com:

FT. MITCHELL, KY: Beechwood (5-10) scored first in its game but that was the only time the Tigers led Friday. NewCath went on 13-0 run capped by a Michael Bueter score that made it 30-13 with 5:13 remaining in the first half.

The junior guard hit four three-pointers and finished with a game-high 19 points. Senior guard Brady Hightchew added 12 points and junior forward Nick Seibert finished with 10 points.

Forwards Corey Cruse and Chase Maus led Beechwood with six points each.

"I can't wait," Bueter said of the match-up against Holy Cross. "It's going to be fun. We've really improved and they're a good team. A very good team. We've got to play hard. We know what they're all about. We're ready."

Brannen called Holy Cross as good a team as there is in the 9th Region.

"I think everybody is looking forward to it," he said. "They've got two studs in Campbell and Burger. Everybody else fills in their role to a 't.' We've got a lot of work ahead of us tomorrow."

"It should be a really good atmosphere, that's for sure," NewCath head coach Grant Brannen said.

Saturday's final is scheduled for 7 p.m. And for both teams, it represents an opportunity to avenge earlier losses.

NewCath (11-4) defeated the Indians by 29 points to win the All "A" 9th Region last year. Last month, Holy Cross was four points better than the Thoroughbreds, who are ranked No. 3 in the Enquirer Northern Kentucky Coaches' poll.

"We're both two different teams now," Indians senior guard Jake Burger said. "We've both progressed. We're just going to come ready to play tomorrow."

Story from Kevin Kelly, NKY.com:

FT. MITCHELL, KY: Jake Burger and junior center Tony Campbell recorded double-doubles in Friday's victory against St. Henry. Holy Cross led by as many as 28 points in the second half and improved its record to 17-2 this season.

The Indians, ranked fourth in the Enquirer Northern Kentucky Coaches' poll, befuddled St. Henry (8-10) with their pressure defense throughout.

The game was tied at 11 with 2:43 remaining in the first quarter when Holy Cross started what turned out to be a 17-0 run that put them ahead 28-11 with 4:56 remaining in the first half.

Burger scored 11 of his game-high 19 points in the first half and finished with 12 rebounds. Campbell overcame early foul trouble to finish with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Junior guard Darius Meiman led St. Henry with 10 points in the game while junior center Zach Carr grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.

"You have to handle their pressure and we didn't do a very good job," St. Henry head coach Dave Faust said. "You don't see that kind of pressure a lot. Early in the game when we were close we missed quite a few shots and free throws and then it just started snow-balling."

Owen County came out smoking in the first quarter, fueled by 9 points on 3 three pointers from Stone Osborne & 5 points from Sawyer Williams. The Rebels would jump out to a 20-7 1st quarter lead.

The second quarter saw the Wildcats come out of their funk and increased the pressure causing quite a few Rebels turnovers. Gallatin capitalized and outscored the Rebels 19-9 in the second quarter and found themselves down just 3 points at the half, 29-26.

The Wildcats started another run to start off the 3rd quarter that saw them take the lead for the first time in the game after a couple of minutes. Led by Travis Davis, the Wildcats were able to tie it up at the end of the 3rd quarter at 40-40.

The final quarter saw the Rebels bring the game to a half court game which is what Coach Jones didn't want. Gallatin tried to up tempo, but the ball just wouldn't fall the Wildcats way. The Rebels would go on a 9-1 run to end the game and took a 57-52 final to remain unbeated in district play.

Stone Osborne was given our Custom Trophy & Apparel player of the game for his 22 points, 5 rebounds and 5 steals.

Coach Mike Code had surpassed Coach Willie Schlarman as the programs winningest coach and the Mustangs had jumped out to a program best 10-0 to start the season.

The 4th quarter saw 25 free throws taken in the final 8 minutes.

The Tigers would take home the 3rd place trophy from the Lloyd Memorial Invitational with a 62-57 win over Bishop Brossart.

Game Recap by TriSchoolSports & KYPost.com

Simon Kenton traveled south Friday night to take on District 32 rival Walton-Verona. The two teams have split every time they have played during the past two years, including two district tournament championships.

The home team started off strong and Simon Kenton matched Walton-Verona basket for basket. Senior guard, Cody Chambers, tied the game at six with a drive to the basket. On the next trip down the court, Cody Monson found Chambers all alone to the right of the key, and he drained it to give the Pioneers its only lead of the night., because Simon Kenton blazed a trail that left the Bearcats behind the rest of the game.

Trailing 22-11, Walton-Verona was setting up for the final bucket of the first period with 30 seconds left, and WV's Zach McNeil's pocket was picked by SK's Cody Monson. He hit a streaking Riley Barnes on the fast break for the lay-up to lead 24-11 at the first break.

The Pioneers extended its lead to 19 points at the half, 37-18. The Bearcats could not keep pace with SK's three point shooting. The Pioneers shot nearly 50 percent from the perimeter (8-17) for 24 points.

The Bearcats trailed by as many as 26 points, twice, in the second half. With close to four minutes left in the game, WV's head coach, Dan Trame, put his junior varsity squad on the floor.

SK's JV players made the best of it. Taylor Morrison got a bucket and Trevor Montgomery hit a three pointer for the final score of the night.

Cody Chambers was given our third Custom Trophy & Apparel Player of the Game for his 21 point effort.
