Ware’s The Scholly, The Vest Divestiture & Summer’s Heat

Take that Brandon Bender. U of L’s Cardinals have fought back to a draw with former part time b-baller Brandon Bender. By all accounts the woefully underachieving former Ballard Bruin steered Seneca QB DaMarcus Smith to Central Florida. Apparently, much to Smith’s chagrin, after he learned that Bender was just woofin’, and that CF’s star […]

Purging That Title Game Malaise

No, I didn’t go down like Uncle Mo in the Bluegrass. Yes, I’ve been away. From here, anyway. It was that cockamamie ending to the college hoops season that took hold like Swine Flu with an added Ohio Valley crud strain and wouldn’t let go. It was like my fingers couldn’t hit the keyboard, even […]

Duke Schadenfreude, Apologies to Sir Chaz & Other Tourney Notes

I love those cable TV shows, usually called something like “How It’s Made.” They go through, step by step, and show how, say, a Swiss Army Knife is made. Or airplane tires. Or a whistle. Well, watching Arizona eviscerate Duke last night was like watching one of those shows explain how hamburger is made. From […]

Where James Naismith, looking for a new form of indoor exercise, hung a couple peach baskets on the overhang at each end of a gymnasium floor, inventing a game that became our passion. Springfield, Mass. Where […]

Derby City Smackdown: Best in Town: Scotty, Jeff or The Rick

In the wake of Louisville’s meltdown against Morehead State, the women’s team’s stunning upset of #5 Xavier on the Lady Musketeers’ home court, and Bellarmine’s continuing quest for a Division II title, the question has to be asked. Who is the best basketball coach in Louisville? The more appropriate process might be to forget the […]

Elite Eight Bound Bellarmine Bashes Ferris State 85-66

In retrospect, despite its sterling play and marksmanship, Ferris State never had a chance. This one was destined to be. Down by a deuce at the half, Bellarmine struck immediately. Braydon Hobbs hit a follow to tie the score at 39. The Knights really never looked back. At one point, Knights Hall was a din […]

Bellarmine Knights survive Norse, Face Ferris for Elite Eight Spot

Scotty Davenport’s 29-2 Knights zoomed off from a six point halftime advantage over rival Northern Kentucky to lead the Round of 32 tilt by 18. Then something happened but I’m not sure what it was.
