    Coming off its first 18th District loss in nearly two years, LaRue County rebounded behind Brown’s 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to top visiting Caverna, 67-45.

    Just two days after a slow start plagued them in a one-point loss to Green County, the Lady Hawks led by 13 after the first quarter and kept the lead in double digits throughout.
