Madison Central Wins Sweet 16 with Epic Comeback




Despite being down by as many as 16 points in the third quarter, Madison Central staged a fourth quarter comeback to win the Boys Sweet 16 in Rupp Arena this afternoon. Although Dominque Hawkins led the way for the Indians with 21 points and 10 rebounds (while UK’s Coach Orlando Antigua watched for the fourth time this week…) it was Ken-Jah Bosley with the game winning three pointer with less than five seconds to play. Bosley finished with 20 points (14 of which came in the fourth quarter), and Quan Taylor also added 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Indians.


On Ballard’s side of the ball, Louisville commit Quentin Snider missed a half court heave at the buzzer for the game winner but led Ballard with 23 points. He joined Lavone Holland, Kelan Martin, Hawkins, Taylor, and Bosley on the All Tournament team.


Hawkins, the Sweet 16 MVP, scored 107 points in four games, the twelfth-highest point total of all time (h/t Kyle Tucker), and more importantly, he showed a willingness to have the ball in his hands with the game on the line. I’m guessing Coach O liked what he saw today.

    Refs did everything to give Madison that game. Ballard gift wrapped the win for them.

    Ballard was up 16 in the 3rd quarter, refs had nothing to do with it. And most of those “hicks” came from the louisville area anyway. Central was clearly the better team, proud to have played ball there, Indians!

    It’s good to see pitino is involving local schools in his “there’s an excuse for ever loss” life philosophy. Refs can’t give away 16 points. Stay classy l-ville. Ballard’s kids were today, but that’s too much for the pitino disciple adults.

    10. There would have been a lot of crying from billy bob in his trailer while collecting his “disability” check because of his bad back. He can thank the tax payers from Louisville for that. He probably blowed up dat meth lab to celebrate.

    What do you louiville people expect? The refs have always done things like that. Especially when they called a terrible blocking call at the end of the third quarter. They did the same thing to Male in 2001. Madison Played good but they definitely had extra help. especially when Renner gift wrapped the win for them by calling a timeout with 15 seconds left.

    If by Billy Bob you mean Tom Jurich, and by “disability” check you mean the Yum! Center, then you are spot on in terms of who deserves thanks from the Louisville taxpayers.

    I see the Louisville people continue to complain (it’s in their nature.) As an ex-pat Richmondian, I couldn’t be happier for Madison Central and Richmond. It was hard enough for us to win the 11th Region with all of the Lexington schools, and now it’s sweet to beat a Louisville school to win the state title. For the Richmond people . . . Family Dog, Big Daddy’s, and Breck Avenue.

    Worse call (or should I say non-call) was when Charles Hurt stuck his hand up THROUGH the net and knocked out a shot by the Beal-led Holmes Bulldogs in the Championship game… a blind man could’ve seen that boo-shit !!!

    Congrats to the ville leading the state in heroin overdoses! By the way, you are welcome for our coal tax money footing the bill for your money pit Yum center. If all the idiots in the ville and mt washington would like a championship shirt, we have plenty for sale here in Richmond.

    Just curious, what does the scholarship situation look like for next year. Obviously, you have to wait and see what happens with this year’s team and who decides to return (the only near sure thing being Noel gone). But, is there an available scholarship to offer the hawkins kid? Or would that be taking one reserved (hopefully) for Randle or Wiggins? Insight anyone?

    The Sweet 16 crowds and the refs hate Louisville teams and it shows in the calls. Ballard was the best team but they gave it away. Congrats to coach Allen Feldhaus on a great year.
