    OWENSBORO, Ky.—Many college athletes come to regret their choice of schools, but Lauren Goffinet, a junior on Kentucky Wesleyan’s women’s basketball team, said last week, “I love it here.”

    Then again, why shouldn’t the Tell City graduate love it, as the Panthers have enjoyed unprecedented postseason success with her in the lineup.
    Last year they made it into the NCAA Division II national tourney for the first time.

  • No clear favorite in sectional

    With neither Forest Park nor Mater Dei having as dominant a team as they have had some years and with Perry Central having its best record in 13 years, this week’s Class 2A Southridge boys basketball sectional is as wide open as it has ever been.
    Perry Central, 16-5, enters the sectional with the best record. The Commodores’ victories include a 59-57 home win over Mater Dei Dec. 10.
    Perry Central lost at Forest Park 56-49 Jan. 7, though, and lost at home to North Posey, which it will face in the first round of the sectional Wednesday.

    The Commodores slowed the pace of the game in the second half.
