High School Basketball Notes

With just one week left in the regular season, here are a few high school basketball notes:
  • When Conner Sweeney scored 32 points against Clark County Friday night and Antwavon "Pig" Williams poured in 36 points versus Montgomery County Tuesday night it was the first time in the history of the Mason County Royals basketball program that two different players had a 30-point game in back to back games. It's only the eighth season with 30-point games by two different players. The other seasons and players are: 1960-61 (Rusty Ryan and Larry Jones), 1971-72 (Mike Corde and Denny Barbour), 1979-80 (Mike Thomas and Allen Feldhaus Jr.), 1980-81 (Kelly Middleton and Allen Feldhaus Jr.), 1991-92 (Orlando Myrick and Timmy Myrick), 2001-02 (Chris Lofton and Robert Myrick), 2003-04 (Chris Lofton and Jarrod Litzinger).

  • The Mason County Lady Royals routed the Nicholas County Lady Jackets 66-12 last week. That's not the fewest points allowed by a Mason County girls' team. In their first season, 1974-75, Mason County defeated Nicholas County 65-10.

  • The Mason County Royals host the Harrison County Thorobreds tonight. Mason County players and cheerleaders from the 1960s and 70s will be introduced at halftime of the varsity game. Another recognition night is scheduled Friday, February 19 during a girls and boys doubleheader at the Fieldhouse. The Lady Royals host Bishop Brossart at 6 p.m. followed by the Royals against Pendleton County. The 1976 and 1986 Mason County Lady Royals 10th Region champions and state final four teams will be introduced at halftime of the girls' game. Maysville and Fee High School players and cheerleaders from the 1950s will be introduced at halftime of the boys' game.
