Cougars hold off Panthers to win district

Kade Wall gave the Logan County Cougars a lead they would never relinquish with 30 seconds remaining in the first quarter Friday. With 0:09 remaining in the game, Wall hit two free throws to clinch a 54-49 win over Russellville for the 13th District championship. In between, the lead was never more than 8 and seven times the Panthers drew within three or fewer points. It was that close a game, befitting a finals. Whenever RHS closed in, Brady Hinton, Davin Yates or another teammate rose to the occasion, which Coach Josh Frick termed “finding a way to win on both ends of the court.” Big men Samson Hightower of Logan (16-15) and Too Two McKeage of RHS (6-26) tended to nullify each other with great defensive performances. Hightower was held to 12 points and McKeage to 7. Wall scored 17 and Hinton 11 for the champs with Eli McMurry leading the Panthers with11 and Kein Gray and Noah Stovall adding 10 points each for Coach Phil Todd’s team. Both teams advance to next week’s regional. Tournament brackets will be drawn Saturday morning at Warren East.

Cougars hold off Rebels to set up district finals Clash

When the Logan County Cougars hit only one of their first eight free throws in their district tournament opener Tuesday night, it looked like they might let a great opportunity to go to region slip away. But Coach Josh Frick's team hit five straight foul shots in the last 48 seconds on the way to a 59-54 win over Todd Central. Juniors Samson Hightower and Brady Hinton led the way, scoring 22 and 12 points, respectively, and playing great defense on star Todd center Jamison Glass, who didn't score a single point the first 20 minutes of the game. Glass ended with 17 points, well below his average, and made two straight turnovers in the final 25 seconds. Kade Wall hit the clinching free throw, scored 9 points, and directed the Cougar offense from his point guard slot.
Cougar perimeter defenders kept the ball from going inside to Glass. As a result, the Rebels shot just 8 free throws while the Cougars shot 23. With the win, the Cougars advance to Friday's 7 p.m. finals against Russellville, which upset top-seeded Franklin-Simpson Monday. Logan won the two regular season Clashes of the Cats by narrow margins.

Panthers shock Franklin 59-54 to advance in district

Franklin-Simpson had a 6-0 district record. Russellville had won only five total games all season. But the Panthers have the region's top coach and some young guys who carried out his game plan perfectly. As a result, Coach Phil Todd's Panthers upset visiting F-S 59-54 in the first round of the 13th District Tournament Monday. With Noah Stovall hitting 10 free throws and Too Two McKeage and Jerius Coleman each hitting a pair of foul shots in the final 15 seconds, the Panthers ended the F-S season 59-54 to earn a berth in Friday's finals and next week's regional tournament. McKeage hit a trio of three-pointers in the second quarter as RHS outscored Franklin 16-6 to take a 30-21 point lead into halftime. The Wildcats cut the lead to three several times late and even got within a point, but the Panthers refused to fold. McKeage finished with 21 points, Stovall 14, Jamarion Gardner 9, Coleman 8 and Eli McMurry 7. Cam Ray led the Kats with 16.
