* The Shamrocks defeated rival St. Xavier at Freedom Hall 64-56 in front of an estimated 7,000 fans.  Trey Ivory scored 24 points and Ray Spalding added 17 points and 15 rebounds as the Rocks used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to pull away. 

Craig Owens and Michael Stafford also played important roles as Trinity defeated the Tigers for the eighth time in nine games.  

Ivory said, "It was a big win against a big-time rival. It was definitely a special moment."

* Trinity defeated Muhlenberg County 55-34 in the 1st Security Bank of Kentucky New Year's Bash. Ivory had 18 points and four steals, and Spalding had six points and six rebounds for the top-five-ranked Rocks (10-2).


* The freshman team ran its record to 11-2 this past Friday with a victory over St. X.  Jacob King’s 14 points and David Burton’s 10 helped the Rocks cruise to a 42-30 victory.  Lukas Burkman, Brendan King and the Smith twins all contributed as well as the Rocks raced out to early leads and kept the Tigers at bay. 

The JV sqaud put forth a solid effort but ultimately fell to the Tigers 50-40.  Sophomores Isiah Knight and Nathan Rose led the way for the Rocks as Christian Terry, Burton and Jacob King also played well.
