Tonight's game: SCHS girls at Spencer County

The Shelby County boys' basketball team won its first game of the season last week and tonight the Rockets' girls' team has a good opportunity to win its first game.

Shelby (0-8) plays at Spencer County (1-7) at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

The Bears' lone victory of the season was a 51-39 win at Campbellsville, and they haven't played since Dec. 22 so they may be a little rusty. Spencer County averages 40.3 points per game, while giving up 56.9.

The Rockets, meanwhile, are averaging 28 points per game, while giving up 60.1.

Max Performance leftovers

Here are some leftovers from last week's Max Performance Invitationals at Collins and Shelby County.

Why didn't Pitino go bigger?

One of the biggest questions from the UK-UofL men's basketball game the other day was...why didn't Rick Pitino go bigger?

Playing a virtual four-guard lineup the entire game the Cardinals made Wildcat big man Josh Harrellson look like an All-American...or maybe Enes Kanter (we'll never know).

Elzy makes second team AP All-State

From the Editor

There never seems to be a dearth of news in Shelby County.

Just today, we have crime, we have an interesting trial about to start and we have people around the state talking about a smoking ban.

The Sentinel-News has implored local government to set standards for restaurant smoking, and it seems that now might be an opportune time, to get a locally created ordinance on the books before the state establishes its policy, which likely would be much broader.
