The LaRue County Hawks fell 60-44 in the opening game of the six-team Henry County Holiday Classic.
The Louisville DeSales Colts bolted out to a 10-point lead less than 8 minutes into the Dec. 26 game. The Hawks scored 17 points to DeSales’ 10 in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to offset the deficit.
Senior forward Tyler Howell paced LaRue County with 12 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Junior forward Caleb Sheffer added eight points and four rebounds.
