  • Key and Ford take spotlight at Green

    Senior guard Kyle Sheeran scored 19 points Jan. 3 to lead four players in double figures as the Hawks cruised past the Campbellsville Eagles, 79-27.
    “This was a game in which a lot of our bench players got some good minutes,” said Coach Paul Childress.
    “Campbellsville is young and a little down right now. We came out a little slower than I wanted, but after a quick timeout we picked up our intensity. We did what we needed to do in this game. I knew we could turn them over with our pressure. The key was converting those into points.”
