Here are stories, stats and scores from boys and girls basketball games played in Louisville and across the Commonwealth on Jan. 6, 2016.

Facing rival South Oldham, ranked No. 15 in the Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous Rankings, right behind Oldham Co.’s No. 14 ranking, the Colonels prevailed, 62-56. In a back-and-forth game, it was the high pressure and defensive intensity displayed by the Colonels that helped them pull away at home.
“It was a heck of a game, Both teams went on runs back and forth and we were able to hold South Oldham,” Oldham Co. head coach Coy Zerhusen said. “We just played really hard and I think we wore them down as the game went on and we were able to make some plays in the fourth quarter. They were just winning plays. We got rebounds and hit free throws.”
Colonels junior guard Andre Brewer had three steals in the fourth quarter and helped his team overcome a third quarter deficit to outscore the Dragons 26-19 in the final period of play. Junior Jackson Gibson scored 16 points to lead the Colonels, including going a perfect 8 of 8 from the free throw line with six made free throws in the fourth. Junior Zach Larimore and senior Ismail Jones each chipped in with 14 points each.
South Oldham senior Jo Griffin struggled to play through illness, and was held to just six points in the game. Junior Devin Young led the team with 14 points.
