    The St. Catharine College Patriots played three basketball games last week against teams with a combined record of 3-16. But while head coach J.T. Burton recognized the talent level his team faced, he also credited his own squad for taking care of business.

    “We didn’t look ready to play Friday and it showed with 28 turnovers,” said Burton. “But Saturday we came out focused. We are up 60 points in that game and our guys are still taking charges.”

    The Washington County Commanders tuned up for the season-opening game against Taylor County by hosting a scrimmage vs. Garrard County Nov. 23. While head coach Russell Burkhead liked what he saw in the early going, he saw some things that need some attention and focus.

    “I liked what I saw until the fourth quarter,” said Burkhead. “We got tired, especially with the football players who have been here for about a week.”

    C'mon get rhythm

    Remember the days before free agency, when professional athletics were pretty much slaves to whatever team owned them? Now while a lot of that old way of doing business is now looked down upon, it also had its good points, as hard as that may be to believe.

    It’s that time again. People have been raking up fallen leaves by the bagful, hooded sweatshirts and jeans replace tee-shirts and shorts as the choice of daily attire, and the morning air is filled with the scent of burning firewood. Yes, it’s time for high school basketball in Washington County.

    In his first season as head coach of the St. Catharine College Patriots, J.T. Burton notched a not-so-enviable 5-24 record. Now, two weeks into his second campaign, Burton has already equaled last year’s win total.

    The Patriots upped their record to 5-0 last week with road wins against Southern Polytechnic State (Marietta, Ga.), 77-67, and Tennessee Wesleyan 76-64, the latter being Burton’s alma mater.
