If Mother Nature will allow it, the Adair County Indians will pay a visit to the Roby Dome tonight for a 20th District match-up with the Marion County Knights.  The Indians (10-6) are on a four-game winning streak and have won six of their last seven contests.

Top-ranked freshman Zion Harmon leads the Indians in scoring at 34.0 PPG, which includes an eye-popping 54 points in a 119-103 win over Caverna last week.  (Amazingly, Harmon did not score the most points in that game.  That honor belongs to Caverna's Jobby Howard, who poured in 65 points to set his school's record.  Howard and his Caverna teammates are scheduled to visit the Roby Dome to take on the Knights on February 13.)  Adair County's second-leading scorer, senior Corey Melton, did not play when the Indians and Knights met in Columbia back on December 8th.  Marion County held a lead in that game at the half, 37-34, but eventually came up short, 88-77, as Adair County's Dre Boyd and Anthony Payne combined for 28 second-half points.

Tip-off for the Knights and Indians is scheduled for 7:45 PM Eastern time (6:45 PM Central) following a girls varsity game between the Lady Knights and Lady Indians at 6:30 PM Eastern time (5:30 PM Central).

Notes: * Should tonight's game be affected by the winter weather, updates will be posted here as soon as they are announced.
** The Marion County Knights 2017 baseball team will be honored between games this evening for reaching the semi-finals of the 2017 KHSAA/Whitaker Bank State Tournament.  The team won its first Fifth Region Championship in school history and finished the season with a record of 28-7, the most wins in school history.  Senior guard Luke Thomas was a key member of that team and set the school record for most pitching wins in a season.
*** Saturday's road game at Bethlehem has been moved to January 27 due to scheduling conflicts.  The Knights are now scheduled to make up last Friday's postponed game at Campbellsville this Saturday.  You can see the current up-to-date schedule by clicking here.

 

Campbellsville Game Postponed (1/12/2018)

Tonight's basketball between the Marion County Knights and Campbellsville Eagles has been postponed.  A rescheduled date will be announced at a later time.  

Also, Saturday's Autism Classic games have been canceled.  No announcement has been made regarding a make-up date.

Knights Play Back-To-Back Again This Weekend (1/12/2018)

Once again, the Marion County Knights will face opponents on back-to-back nights.  Tonight Marion County will head to Campbellsville High School for their second match-up of the season with the Eagles, and Saturday the Knights will face the Taylor County Cardinals in the final game of the annual Autism Classic at the Roby Dome.  However, both games will be dependent on how severe the approaching winter storm will be.

The Eagles are currently 7-9 on the season and suffered a disappointing 63-59 loss at Hart County on Tuesday.  But last Friday the Eagles defeated their cross-town rival Taylor County in a thrilling 66-63 overtime win, giving Campbellsville a sweep in their season series with the Cardinals for the first time since the 2009-2010 season.  In their balanced offense, junior forward Nataj Sanders leads the Eagles in scoring at 12.2 PPG, and is closely followed by sophomore Malachi Corley at 11.0 PPG and Connor Wilson at 9.6 PPG. But seniors Chanson Atkinson and Ethan Lay as well as freshman Arren Hash are also capable of putting up double figures.  With tonight's game scheduled to be a girl/boy double-header, the Knights and Eagles are scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM following the girls Varsity game at 6:00 PM.

The Cardinals suffered a major blow to their hopes this season when junior guard DeJhon Irvin suffered a broken arm in practice before their first game, and have since struggled to a 3-11 record, including those two losses to Campbellsville, but picked up a 49-45 win at North Hardin on Thursday..  Junior guard TreVon Smith has still looked impressive, leading Taylor in both scoring and rebounding (19.5 PPG and 5.9 RPG).  But head coach Maze Stallworth is still looking for more consistant production from his supporting cast.  The Knights and the Cards are scheduled to tip off at 8:00 PM in the final of three games in Marion County's Autism Classic.  The Lady Knights will play Green County at 6:00 PM, following a girls Varsity game between Bullitt East and North Hardin at 4:00 PM.  Funds raised for this event will be contributed to efforts supporting those with Autism.

Of course, all of these games are subject to the incoming winter weather storm that will hit central Kentucky Friday morning into Saturday.  As soon as administrators make a decision on whether or not to play, this page will be updated.

 

Knights Hold Off Late Run; Defeat Dragons (1/10/2017)


Marion County's Luke Thomas (0) hits one of his four 3-Pt. FGs over Green County's Zyler Bardin (20).

The Marion County Knights held a 10-point lead after three quarters and watched the Green County Dragons cut it all the way to just one point with 0:34.2 left in the game before holding on for a 60-57 win Tuesday night at the Roby Dome.  Luke Thomas drained three of his four three-point field goals in the first half, then clinched the win with a pair of free-throws with 8.5 seconds left to play.

With the Knights still short-handed on their front line, Green County attacked inside early by feeding their big man Isaac Young.  Young scored seven of his game-high 25 points in the first quarter, but Marion County countered with outside shooting, first taking the lead 6-4 on a three-pointer from Thomas midway through the period.  The Knights would never trail after that point, but the Dragons refused to be put away, either.  Marion County's largest lead of the first half came with a little more than a minute left in the second half when Mason Sullivan swiped an errant Dragons pass and found Tyshay Epps streaking up the floor for a transition lay-up for a nine point advantage, but had to settle for a 35-28 lead at the half.

The Knights went on a 10-2 run in the third quarter and held their largest lead of the game, 47-37, to start the fourth period.  Green County went back to pounding the ball inside to Young who came away each time with either a basket or a trip to the free-throw line.  After scoring just one point while fighting off foul trouble against Marion County last month, this time Young finished with 25 points while creating foul trouble for the Knights.  Young went to the charity stripe nine time in the fourth quarter, converting seven attempts as the Dragons slowly chipped away at the lead.  Sullivan fouled out attempting to guard Young with 0:34.2 remaining in the game, and Young hit both free-throws to cut Marion County's lead to just one, 58-57.  Marion County head coach Montrelle Irvin called time twice as the Knights tried to drain the clock and eventually Thomas was fouled by Green County's Hunter McCubbins with 0:08.5 showing on the clock.  Thomas calmly made both free-throws to put Marion County back on top by three, 60-57.  Green County still had a chance to tie the game and force overtime, but McCubbins' three-point attempt from the top of the key as time expired wouldn't go down and the Knights claimed the victory.

Thomas finished the game with 16 points to lead the Knights in scoring and also posted three rebounds and four steals.  Epps scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half while tying his career-high in assists with nine.  Sullivan also tied a career-high with 13 rebounds to go with his nine points and three steals before fouling out late.  Lez Means scored 12 points with seven rebounds.  You can read more about this game by clicking on the score in the right-hand column, or by clicking here.

The Knights return to game-action this weekend with another pair of back-to-back games.  On Friday Marion County will travel to Campbellsville High School for a match-up with the Eagles in the second game of a girl/boy double-header at 7:30 PM, then on Saturday will face the Taylor County Cardinals in the final game of the Autism Awareness Classic at the Roby Dome.

JV Knights Claim Win Over JV Dragons -- Marion County's JV Knights also claimed a win over Green County on Tueday in the opening game of the night, 53-39.  Spencer Lucas led the JV Knights with 15 points.

 

Dragons Visit Roby Dome For Rematch (1/9/2018)


Green County's Brody Bush (11) scores two of his team-high 15 points over Mason Sullivan (10) in the Dragons' loss to Marion County on December 12.

When the Marion County Knights and Green County Dragons last met on December 12 in Greensburg, Dragons' leading scorer Isaac Young picked up two quick fouls early in the first quarter and only managed to score one point in his team's 61-48 loss to the Knights.  Young and the Dragons are clearly hoping for better results this time when they visit the Roby Dome this evening for a JV/Varsity double-header.

Young still leads the Dragons in both scoring (12.4 PPG) and rebounding (6.9 RPG).  But to make up for the loss of his production in the game against the Knights last month, juniors Brody Bush and Zyler Bardin picked up the slack, scoring 15 and 13 points, respectively, to try to keep their team in the game.  Marion County also had issues with foul trouble in the last match-up with the Dragons as starters Lez Means and Luke Thomas both spent a considerable amount of time in the first half on the bench.  But sophomore Tyshay Epps led the way for the Knights with 17 points and five assists as Marion County got a balanced scoring attack for the 13-point win.

Game-time for the Varsity game tonight is scheduled for 8:00 PM Eastern time (7:00 PM Central), following the Junior Varsity contest at 6:30 PM Eastern time (5:30 PM Central).
