  • Aces' hot shooting knocks...

    LINCOLN CITY—When two reserves combine for 33 points on 63 percent field-goal shooting, it usually bodes well for their basketball team and poorly for their opponent.

    Such was the case in Owensboro Catholic’s 61-48 win over Tell City for fifth place in the PSC Holiday Classic Saturday.
