FORT KNOX — Bardstown had little trouble with Green County in the 5th Region All A Classic semifinals Wednesday, cruising into tonight’s championship with a 78-53 win.
The Tigers (14-5) will look to make a third straight trip to the statewide Touchstone Energy All A Classic — which is next week in Frankfort — if they can get past the winner of Thursday’s other semifinal between Bethlehem and Fort Knox, which was too late for press time for this edition. Tonight’s championship is at 6 p.m.
Dee Yocum got all seven of his points in the first quarter as Bardstown claimed a 24-12 lead and never looked back. Devonte Grundy (16 points), Tavon Johnson (15) and Marcus Cosby (11) each had three three-pointers as the Tigers lit it up behind the arc, dropping in 14 treys. Twelve Tiger players cracked the scorebook.
Bardstown has won nine of its last 10.
Green County’s Kyle Patterson led all scorers with 24.
Bardstown and Green County were originally scheduled to play Tuesday, but an ice storm forced the postponement of Tuesday’s games to Wednesday, while Bethlehem’s semifinal game with Fort Knox was moved from Wednesday to Thursday.

Kasia Stone’s 16 points led the way for Bardstown. Green County had three players hit for double-figure scoring, led by Rachel Marr’s 16.
Bardstown visits Washington County in the front end of a girls-boys district doubleheader Tuesday.
