    During a break in practice Monday afternoon, LaRue County freshman guard Presley Brown said the Lady Hawks could shock the 18th District on Tuesday night in tournament semifinals against second-seeded Caverna.

    Had her midcourt, buzzer-beating 3-pointer fallen instead of rimming out, Brown and the third-seeded Lady Hawks might have pulled off a shocker. Instead, the balanced — and sometimes lucky — Lady Colonels survived, 58-55.


    The LaRue County Hawks lost Tuesday night in the opening round of the 18th District Tournament.

    Third-seeded Green County built a double-digit lead less than 8 minutes and never trailed in a 65-61 win over the second-seeded Hawks at Hawk gym.

    LaRue County shot 34.5 percent in the first half to Green County’s scorching 60 percent, but the Hawks were still within 34-27 at the break after senior forward Caleb Sheffer made 1-of-2 free throws during a lonely trip to the foul line since he was fouled at the buzzer.
