    On the night of March 3, 2017, Bob Osborne coached his final game of basketball for Owen County.
    That night Grant County defeated Owen County in the semifinals of the 8th Region Tournament ending his 12-year stint as head coach of the Lady Rebels. As the final seconds ticked away Osborne said his thoughts were not about himself.
    “I really felt bad for the girls,” he said. “We didn’t bring our ‘A’ game, and they did.”  
    This year’s seniors have been especially fun to coach, Osborne said.
