The song of choice in the club this week is "Black and Gold" by Sam Sparro.
Ashland's Alexis Robinson and Bath County's Sarah Price are apparently motivated by the colors. Fleming County's Troy Steward, too.
Robinson notched a career-high 31 points against Madison Central on Saturday on the strength of six 3-pointers. She recently committed to Colorado, which dons the black and gold.
With Vanderbilt representation in the crowd, Bath County's sensational sophomore Sarah Price collected 30 points, 20 rebounds and seven blocks against Rowan County.
Steward went ballistic for a career-best 47 points against Knott County Central on Sunday. Hey, whaddaya know? Fleming County sports black and gold.
Larry Conley will be honored at Tuesday's Rowan County-Ashland game for being selected to the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame's second class last summer.
While the former Ashland Tomcat star won't be at the game, his sister, Tomcat scorekeeper Linda Meyers, will be given a plaque in Larry's absence. The school will also receive a plaque for the recognition.
Conley and former Paintsville High School star J.R. VanHoose were among the second class of inductees to bring the number of the Hall of Fame Centennial Class to 33 members.
The KHSBHF will culminate its Centennial Class in 2018 with a total of 100 inductees, representing the first 100 years of Kentucky high school basketball.
