  • Late dry spell costs NB big...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Following an exchange of baskets to open the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday had a 51-50 lead over visiting Nelson County, the state’s 19th ranked team.

    Unfortunately, that turned out to be the high-water mark for the green and gold as Nelson County scored 12 of the next 14 points over a five-minute span to take control of the game. By the final buzzer, the Lady Cardinals had pulled out a 71-62 victory by outscoring North Bullitt 23-13 in the final quarter.

  • East, North both in Girls’ LIT

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the third straight season, both Bullitt East and North Bullitt earned spots in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Consolidated Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament set to start on Jan. 24 at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

  • Snow grabs two NB games

     HEBRON ESTATES – On Thursday of last week, North Bullitt and Assumption had to postpone a game because of inclement weather.

    This was actually the second time this game has had to be moved. It was originally scheduled for the first week of the season, but Assumption asked that it be moved because of an ‘open house’ at the school that night.

    Still, as of Friday, no new date for the game had been set.

  • BC teams split two

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite scoring just eight points in the fourth quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars managed to hold off a spirited comeback by visiting Meade County 65-63 on Tuesday.

    The Green Wave had opened the season with a 7-1 record and while the team has been struggling of late, they were a big school with a winning record at 8-5 when they got to Shepherdsville. However, the youthful Cougars did enough right to get perhaps the most impressive victory to this part of the season.

  • BE rolls on a holiday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the fact that it was basically a national holiday and there was wall-to-wall football on TV at home, but the Bullitt East Chargers focused very well on basketball last Monday as they crushed visiting Whitefield Academy 89-38.

  • ‘Revenge’ tour not working out...

     HODGENVILLE – To this point, the 2016-2017 basketball season as been the ‘revenge’ tour for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    Unfortunately, the Eagles are not the ones exacting the revenge.

    A year ago, coach Korey Craddock’s team opened the season 14-1 with an undefeated record against Kentucky teams up until the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament. That winning streak included holiday tournament titles at both Spencer County and LaRue County.

  • East finishes third at Ashland...

     ASHLAND – A little extra time together over the holidays could prove to be a boost for a Bullitt East squad that has a number of big games on the horizon.

    Between the two holidays, the Chargers headed east and played in the 62nd annual Ashland Invitational. Bullitt East dropped the middle game and then finished third in one of the state’s oldest holiday events.

  • Cougars learn new lessons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Not a lot of high school basketball games are played at 9 a.m. in the morning.

    That was just one of the lessons that a young Bullitt Central team had to learn last week as they played three games in the South Central Bank-Helton Classic at Allen County-Scottsville High School.

  • Lady Eagles have a dolphin good...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming just a few days after a ‘lost’ week playing in the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament with overall team sickness, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got back on the winning track during a trip to Florida last week in which the green and gold won two of three games.

  • East girls romp in Florida

      FORT MYERS, FLORIDA – It is very true that Bullitt East has played one of the most difficult schedules in the state this season.

    Coach Chris Stallings’ team enters the new year with an 11-4 record. Of the three teams that have beaten the Lady Chargers (they have lost twice to Male), those three teams have a combined 33-2 record through the first of the year.

    So yes, Bullitt East has had more than their share of ‘big games.’
