March 7, 2012Bardstown High School
CECILIA — Bardstown's bid for back-to-back 5th Region titles fell just short Tuesday, as John Hardin's Brandon Price earned his tourney MVP performance with a 37-point, seven-assist night in the Bulldogs' 74-66 win.
The Tigers' season came to an end with a 25-10 mark, while the Bulldogs, who also knocked out 17th District representative Bethlehem in the first round, improve to 22-8 overall and will advance to next week's boys' Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena in Lexington, where they will face 15th Region champ Johnson Central (25-10).
Bardstown struggled offensively for much of the game, hitting 23-of-58 field goals. In the first half, the Tigers managed just 7-for-21 from the field and fell behind by 14 going into the locker room.
The Tigers rallied in the second half behind Anthony Myrks — who scored all of his team-high 21 points after the break following a first half where the senior was saddled with foul trouble — and managed to pull within five points on a couple occasions, but could never close the gap.
Bardstown also got 15 points from Devonte Grundy and 10 apiece from Jordan Brewer and Marcus Cosby. For John Hardin, Jeremy Harness and Daveon Greene scored 10 apiece, while Greene also grabbed 12 rebounds
