    TELL CITY—Tell City center Kassidie Hayes was named to the All-PAC girls basketball team in voting by conference coaches Wednesday.
    Hayes, a 6-foot senior, missed the first nine games of the season while recuperating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last summer and saw limited action in several after that.
    But she still blocked five times as many shots as anyone else on Tell City’s team and led the squad in rebounding with 6.1 per game.

    If he wanted to, Perry Central Coach Matt Carter could borrow a quote from a former college coach who once came to Perry Central to try to recruit him, Bobby Knight.
    Early in the 1976-77 season a reporter said something to Knight about his Indiana University Hoosiers being the defending national champion.
