Top seeds dominate Sweet 16



RALEIGH, N.C. RALEIGH, N.C. The path to the Final Four will not be easy for Zion Williamson, Luke Maye, De’Andre Hunter and the other top-seeded stars in the NCAA Tournament. For the first time in a decade, the remaining tournament field entering the Sweet 16 looks a lot like the one set on Selection Sunday. The headlining teams are still […]

Herro never thinks about missing a foul shot



He’s held the record for 40 years, but former Kentucky All- American Kyle Macy says he never really fretted about freshman Tyler Herro breaking his single season free throw accuracy record. “He is doing a great job. A lot of guys don’t spend time working on foul shooting like they should,” said Macy, the starting point guard on UK’s 1978 […]

Struttin’ Time:

Memories were made in Florida hunt

Turkey season is off and running. I took four of my friends to Florida recently to finish their “Grand Slams” or just to hunt at the Watermelon Pond Plantation. My friends from Illinois, Rhett Rossi and Jamie Malcom, were both after their “Slams.” Rhett got his the first day, a nice long beard with 10 inches hanging, and one and […]

Where to look for bass and crappie

The calendar says it is spring and the warmer weather is a true sign of the times. If what I have seen and heard already about the bass fishing, this spring should be great. I have not gotten to go fishing yet, but I will soon. There have been some really nice-sized bass already caught this year, many of which […]

More on state’s hunting license cost

Well my baby girl and myself are in Florida hunting wild boar, Osceola turkey, quail, and doing some fishing as well. We wanted to go for a “gator hunt” but time, because of her job, put a stop to that. I can’t wait until she retires and we won’t worry about the days. I have gotten several e-mails and text […]

Beware of tourney upsets



LAS VEGAS Picking a perfect bracket has become a nearly impossible act, the ritual of ripping up brackets an annual rite of the NCAA Tournament. UMBC proved the point early last year by beating Virginia to become the first No. 16 seed to topple a No. 1 in tournament history. Loyola-Chicago proved it late by taking Sister Jean all the […]

Duke clear favorite for NCAA crown



Think of the greatest rivalries in college sports. Michigan vs. Ohio State. Alabama vs. Auburn. Miami vs. Florida State. Everybody vs. Notre Dame. Duke vs. North Carolina is as good as any, if not better. They have met in basketball 251 times. They now have a combined 93 NCAA Tournament appearances. They’ve played a combined 318 NCAA Tournament games. They […]

Where Quickley plays, sister and aunt follow



When Kentucky opens NCAA Tournament play in Jacksonville against Abilene Christian Thursday, it is a given that Immanuel Quickley’s aunt, Demetria Caldwell, will be there supporting the Wildcats. Actually, no matter where the Cats would have been playing, she was going to come. “I did not miss any UK home games, including Big Blue Madness and the Blue/White game,” said […]

Gabby’s fishing fever

Where to look for bass and crappie

I think everyone is ready for spring and warmer weather. This winter has been very wet and cold, and many of lakes and streams were flooded. This really put a big stop to any early spring fishing and set anglers back some. But now everything has settled down and looking much better. The lakes are now at normal levels and […]

Dontaie Allen ‘surprised, grateful’ for honor



  Now that he has been named Mr. Basketball, it won’t be long before Dontaie Allen will certainly see road signs coming into Pendleton County proclaiming it the home of the 2019 Mr. Basketball. “That is just crazy to even think about,” said Allen after he won the award last week given to the state’s top senior player. “I really […]
