Logan sweeps Clash, but Panthers turn boys game into nail-biter

After the Logan County Lady Cougars dominated their Clash with visiting Russellville 66-32 with their reserves playing much of the second half, it appeared more of the same was coming in the boys game. Coach Lonnie Mason's Cougars led by 14 points at halftime, thanks primarily to the shooting of senior guard Austin Rayno, who had piled up 22 points at the intermission. He had hit four 3-pointers by the end of the second quarter, including one from even longer distance at the buzzer. But the Panthers had other ideas. They came back by forcing Cougar turnovers and getting Rayno in foul trouble. Coach Rex Booth's team came back to take two fourth-quarter leads, including by four at 60-56. But Rayno scored four points to tie it. He and Mycah Hampton hit some big free throws at the end, and Tommy Krohn and Third Bell got some key rebounds and steals on the way to a 68-64 win. Caden McKinnis dominated inside early, and Kelby Epley played a big role in building the halftime lead. Raynor finished with 28 points, Krohn 13, Epley 12 and McKinnis 9. Krohn was a steady factor throughout. Jacob Naylor scored 25, Anthony Woodard 17, Elijah Kemp and Devin Quarles 9 each for the Panthers, but the rest of the team managed only four points. See more basketball news on The LoJo in later posts.

McLeans absent from dream matchup

Today's Music City Bowl in Nashville usually would have found former Russellvillians Porter and Linda McLean enjoying themselves watching their favorite team(s). The McLeans met and married as students at the University of Kentucky, which is one of the participants in today's bowl. Their daughter Mandy, however, played her collegiate soccer at Northwestern University, the other team in the Music City Bowl. And they could have visited with their brother and sister-in-law, Jack and Betty McLean of Russellville. They don't have to decide which team to support publicly today, though, since this is their 50th wedding anniversary and they are celebrating with their extended family in Chicago and Wisconsin. The McLeans are still relishing the World Series championship 14 months ago recorded by their beloved Chicago Cubs.

Sindelar of Caldwell County played baseball against Logan County High at LCHS and basketball against Russellville at Jim Young Gymasium in the First Southern National Bank/Roy's/WRUS Christmas Classic. The defensive coordinator for Purdue is Nick Holt, the former WKU defensive coordinator who was passed over for the Toppers' head coaching job when Brohm left last season.

Pedro Bradshaw no longer part of Belmont basketball

When Belmont University visits WKU tonight in a matchup of two of the nation's traditionally top mid-major men's basketball programs, Russellvillle's Pedro Bradshaw will not be in a Belmont uniform.
