  • BASKETBALL: Hawks defeat Green...

     Wanting, and perhaps needing, to get over the hump against visiting 18th District rival Green County, the LaRue County Hawks leaned on a pair of seniors to make it happen Friday night.

    Forward Caleb Sheffer and guard Micah Wiseman combined to score 34 of the Hawks’ final 36 points as they rallied for a 69-64 overtime win against the Dragons.

    Hawks coach Paul Childress said it drives him crazy when Sheffer misses easy baskets inside and Childress was none too thrilled when he was forced to send Wiseman to the bench in the second half with four fouls.
