Kentucky School f/t Deaf 52, Cincinnati St. Rita School f/t Deaf 43 — At Danville, KSD (11-8) bounced back from an 0-2 run at last week’s Mason-Dixon Tournament to beat St. Rita.
Andrew Floyd scored 23 points and Bradley Chappell added 15 for the Colonels, who pulled away from a 32-all tie by outscoring St. Rita 20-9 to close the game.
Chappell went 6 for 6 at the free-throw line in the fourth quarter, and he also had eight assists and three steals.
"I thought our passing game was a little better than last week where we had zero assists in the Mason-Dixon Tournament,” KSD coach Mike Yance said. “We did not play with much energy, but our defense carried us. We probably were still tired from the long trip to eastern Kentucky and then South Carolina."
Floyd had 11 rebounds, including nine off the offensive glass, and Aaron Smith had eight boards.
Woodford County 69, Mercer County 68 — At Harrodsburg, Mercer (13-8) fell to Woodford (14-6) after its last-ditch attempt to salvage a win failed.
The Titans got the ball with six seconds left, and Clay Cinnamon drove to the rim only to see his shot fall short.
However, Mercer also went just 15 for 30 at the free-throw line.
“There was obviously plenty of room there to make a difference of one point,” Mercer assistant coach Steve Quattrocchi said. “And our defense was much better, but we sort of wore out down the stretch and lost our legs.”
Aaron Lee led Mercer with 23 points. Woodford’s Jay Johnson scored 16 of his team-high 18 points in the second half.
Russell County 63, Casey County 49 — At Liberty, Casey fell to archrival Russell (13-7) for the second time this season after it was outscored 18-9 in the third quarter.
The Rebels led 26-24 at halftime before the Lakers took control.
“There was a spot in the third quarter where we quit executing and took some bad shots,” Casey coach Todd Carman said. “Overall our effort was really good and we played hard for for quarters, but there was just a small span in the third quarter that we rushed a few things and didn’t execute.”
Brad Jeffries led Casey with 18 points, and James Burton had 13 points and 10 rebounds. Jordan Ellison contributed five assists, and Luke Carman had eight rebounds.
Casey had only 11 turnovers but shot just 32 percent after going 2 for 17 from 3-point range.
Paris 76, Burgin 52 — At Burgin, Burgin (7-8) lost to Paris (5-15) for the second time in eight days after being outscored 27-12 in the third quarter.
