Madisonville Keeps dancing in the Sweet 16


Madisonville North Hopkins made their first appearance to the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 for the first time since KSR’s Drew Franklin was a young lad at Madisonville, and their fans did not disappoint, bringing seemingly the whole city. The Maroons didn’t disappoint either as they advance to the Elite Eight beating Lincoln County 57-49.

While this game was never in certain, Madisonville took in the 2nd half, not allowing the Patriots to hold the lead at all in that time. Lincoln County did cut the lead to three a few times in the 2nd half, however, but the big shot never seemed to fall for the Patriots, missing several threes to tie the game in the fourth.

It was the Kenny White show for Madisonville as the 6’7 junior was all over the place with 21 points, eight boards, and six blocks. He was easily the main attraction on the court as you see below.

Kenny White currently has offers Tennesee-Martin, Kent State, and Evansville. If I were a betting man, I’d say he’ll get a few more calls after his stint in the tournament.

Madisonville’s big man Kshaun Casey chipped in a double-double in their winning efforts. He finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Lincoln County is a young group with an outstanding freshman point guard in Jaxon Smith. There is no doubt Lincoln County will be a big player in the 12th Region for the next few years. Don’t be surprised if we see Jaxon Smith’s name on the recruiting trail as well, he finished with 19 points and six assists.

Madisonville will play the winner of Warren Central and Mayfield Friday at 8:00 pm.

Warren Central and Mayfield will tip off at 8:30 pm, I’ll be bringing you coverage for the finale of the first round.

      Absolutely. I realize that sometimes you are trying to get something up quickly but there is no excuse for some of what is written in this post.

      The game was “never in certain?” “Madisonville took in the 2nd half” – what did they take? You don’t need both a “however” and a “but.”
