  • BASKETBALL: Ivy Brown signs with Western

    Then-Western Kentucky University coach Mary Taylor Cowles was one of the first NCAA Division-I coaches to come calling for LaRue County’s Ivy Brown.

    When WKU fired Cowles in March – during Brown’s junior season with the Lady Hawks – Brown wondered what would happen.

    It didn’t take her long to find out. Just two weeks later, Michelle Clark-Heard, a former University of Louisville assistant and a former Lady Topper standout, was named WKU’s coach.

    And not soon after, Brown was back in contact with WKU.
