Remembering Larry Gilbert, a Kentucky golf legend, who passed away 20 years ago today at age 55. A rags-to-riches story, Larry was a 3-time Senior PGA Tour winner, 3-time National Club Pro champ, 3-time Kentucky Open champ & a shining example of a blue-collar work ethic. https://t.co/LhBXc0yUOd
37 years ago today (Jan. 20, 1981) Simon Kenton's Troy McKinley had 26 points, 17 rebounds in a 76-66 win over Walton-Verona. Exactly two months later (March 20, 1981) McKinley’s 39 points, 13 rebounds led Pioneers by Virgie 84-83 in Sweet 16 QFs, and eventually to state title.
28 years ago today (Jan. 19, 1990) Rowan County 6-foot-6 senior Kelly Wells had 47 points & 13 rebounds in an 82-67 win over Bath County. Wells hit 20 of 30 FGs. He finished the season averaging 24.7 points & 8.9 rebounds.
66 years ago today (Jan. 18, 1952) Reigning state champ Clark County set a state record with its 38th win in a row by beating Lafayette 52-34 in front of 13,600 fans in UK's Memorial Coliseum. Lewis Snowden had 20 points and Linville Puckett 16 for Letcher Norton's Cardinals.
@ball_coach I'm sure you remember. Kelly Middleton's 24 points and your 20 points led Mason County to a 69-64 upset of Bryan Station in the quarterfinals.
