Metro Sports Report

Hall of Fame coach Joe Kenney dies

I didn't know Joe Kenney well, but I knew him well enough.

I got to know Joe when he was an assistant baseball coach at Washington during the 1970s. He was the guy who was chalking and talking when you reached the baseball field at Washington, and he always had a kind word.

I was a gangly junior with a permanent spot on the Jefferson bench. I don't think Bopper knew my name. 

Joe knew me. He called me Koolbecky, as in "Well, Koolbecky, how are we doing today?"

Bohannon's 25 send No. 1 Lions past Cougars

The people who told Matt Bohannon he'll never be as good as his brother Jason could be right.

He might turn out better.

Bohannon popped in 25 points Friday night as No.1 Linn-Mar beat fourth-ranked Kennedy, 66-57, in a choppy Mississippi Valley Conference game before a near-capacity crowd at Linn-Mar.

Jason Bohannon helped Linn-Mar win the Class 4A state title in 2004 and was named Iowa's Mr. Basketball in 2006, then had a solid career at the University of Wisconsin. Matt is five years younger than Jason, but closing ground fast.
