First off let me share this email I received from Trigg County High School Basketball Coach Mike Wright


I have enjoyed your coverage of the last part of our basketball season. The Cadiz Record sorely needed a sports writer and I am glad they found one. I was puzzled by your piece on the technicals in our Todd County game.

Here are the facts. Assistant Lucas Chesnut said, “He walked, come on call the walk!” He also made a traveling motion with his arms. He got a technical for that from official Jay Davis. He did nothing to get the second technical. Someone yelled from the stands that the official needed to learn the rules. Mr. Davis then turned around and assessed the second technical to Coach Chesnut.

He really was not deserving of the second one.

I agree the Mr. Davis is a veteran official and a very good one.

Therefore, one individual was responsible for the technical and now you know what he said.

Where are the several adults that caused this? I think the readers now have the impression that myself and other coaches were to blame for this also. In reality I have had a great relationship with officials all year, including Mr. Davis.

Feel free to call me anytime and I will be glad to give you any information you need.

Thanks and see you at the tournament!

Enthusiasm Makes the Difference,

Coach Mike Wright

With high school hoops coming to an end my world moves on to college hoops. This week you will not find me in Cadiz or Western Kentucky much as I gear up for a college hoops overdose I can only call “Music City Madness.”

Over the years, the Ohio Valley Conference - home to Austin Peay and Murray State - has used the name Music City Madness for their conference tournament in Nashville.
