  1. John Edge's record at Owensboro Catholic: 14 years: 130 wins, 50 losses. (.722 win %). Only 2 losing seasons. 8 seasons of 10 or more wins. (At least) 2 appearances in the Ky 2A State Championship game.
  2. Yep. South Spencer just issued a release this afternoon. The release was careful to note that Edge has not yet been hired, but that "the search committee...has named John Edge as its recommendation to the board as the new Rebel Head Football Coach. A public board meeting will take place on March 12th, 2018, where the board will give the recommendation official status." So that means an agreement in principle has been reached, nothing has yet been signed and nothing is yet 100% official. But I cannot imagine South Spencer issuing the release today if it weren't confident that the board would accept the recommendation. IMO, this (pending) hire is pretty much a home run for SSHS. Edge has been extremely successful at Owensboro Catholic. They are a perennial power in Kentucky and from what I can gather, he is very well respected as a head coach.
  3. HH wins 29-23. Tell City made a concerted effort to limit possessions & try to slow down the Patriots. But Heritage Hills was up to the task. Both teams were very good defensively as expected. Patriots were perhaps a little better as they held TC to just 35% shooting and forced 11 turnovers by our unofficial account. Blake Sisley hit 4 huge ft’s in the final minute to lead all scorers with 11. Mitchel Becher added 8. Murray Becher battled foul trouble & finished with 6. Scherry & Jones each had 2. Braeden Beard led TC with 8. Hunt had 5. Arnold & Blake both had 3, Lyons & Fest each had 2. Burying the lead a bit here, but the win ensures HH it’s first PAC boys basketball championship since 04-05 and the program’s 15th overall, the most of any PAC member.
  4. I’ll try to post something after the game if you can’t Dave. I’ve seen TC twice & been impressed with their defense each time. TC is also a relentless rebounding team when they are at their best. Those happen to be strengths of HH too. It’ll be interesting.
  5. Forest Park at Heritage Hills

    Thanks. I missed that score.
  6. Forest Park at Heritage Hills

    Arguably the best game Mitchel Becher has played. Great decision-making on offense and very, very good defense. His 3 at the end of the 3rd was a real dagger. Took a 7 pt lead up to 10 & put momentum squarely behind HH going to the 4th. overall, the defense for HH was very good after giving up a few things early. Patriots cannot rest on their laurels. Another opponent undefeated in conference awaits tonight at Pike Central.
  7. Heritage Hills 44 Jasper 29

    Very impressed with the Patriot defense today. Not a good shooting day for HH, but they were locked in on D. The performance on that end of the floor was how they were able to win by 15 at a place that is not easy to go into & win.
  8. PAC Conference 2017-2018

    Boonville had a nightmarish night in Lincoln City. They’ve been w/o starting guard Rylan Hicks for a few games. He has a cast on his wrist. Ross Kirkland injured an ankle during the week & was in street clothes. Then, during warmups, their all-Area, USI-bound leading scorer Glen Rouch hobbled off the floor with a leg injury & was done for the night. And if that wasn’t enough, guard Kenyon Bruner suffered an apparent knee injury 9 seconds into the game. That’s 4 of their top 6 or 7 players down before anyone had broken a sweat. Never seen anything like it.

    Yeah, I’d say that’s probably right. But I don’t actually know it for a fact.

    Also need to acknowledge a performance in the 3rd-place game. South Spencer’s Dylan Kelly was electric as he poured in 33. He was flat unstoppable in the 1st half as he scored 22 of his team’s 27. Sounds weird to say, but both teams were actually playing really good defense, despite Kelly going off. In the end, Tell City got a few more stops & gritted out a 5-point win
  11. 13th annual PSC Holiday Classic

    Very impressed with Crawford’s defense & how they have improved overall since I saw them earlier in Dec. critical point in this game came late in the 3rd and/or early in the 4th. Patriots led 28-27. Crawford had at least 5 or 6 possessions with a chance to take the lead. They spread the floor& ran dribble-drive, but the taller Patriots were up to the defensive challenge & got stop after stop to preserve the lead.
  12. PSC Holiday Classic, Day 1

    I remember that ending & that shot. I had forgotten that it was a PSC championship game & that it was against Crawford. HH & SS have played some wild games in that gym over the years. I’ll never forget the 100-point game!

    Dang it Dave! You beat me to it!
