    Riding high from their overtime win at district rival Owen County, the Panthers were pulled back down to earth Tuesday by the paws of the Henry County Wildcats. The visiting Wildcats defeated the Panthers 59-57 in a nail biter Dec. 11.

    “I didn’t think we were anywhere near as sharp as we have been,” head coach Carroll Yager said. “… I don’t think we were as focused and ready to play. We were coming off of a big win at Owen, and I don’t think we were as mentally into it as we needed to be.”

    The Panthers dominated on the inside, out-rebounding the Raiders 33-21 and shooting 43 percent from two-point range, while the Raiders drained 12 threes from the outside. But it was Carroll’s pressure defense that gave them a plus-11 turnover margin and secured a 67-56 win at home.

    Stone coached the past 11 seasons at Bardstown High School; the Lady Tigers were 11-18 last season.
