The nominations are in for the next LINK nky Team of the Week competition.

To be the winning team, fan votes play a heavy role, along with consideration from our sports team here at LINK.

Nominations are reader-submitted or recommended by our sports team. Our Team of the Week program honors all local sports at all levels, whether it’s youth- or adult-oriented recreation, high school or college, professional or amateur.

NORTHERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY NORSE MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM

The Norse welcomed the Cincinnati Bearcats to Truist Arena and managed to knock off their northern neighbors in front of an historic crowd in Highland Heights. The 64-51 triumph was the first over UC in NKU’s history.

By the way, our Team of the Week poll runs a week behind the current week, so we’re looking at performances from Nov. 14 – 20. The Nov. 16 victory over Cincinnati was historic for the Norse, so they are nominated here for that, and not the three consecutive losses that have happened since.

NKU (2-4) welcomes Tennessee Tech (2-4) to Truist Arena on Sunday, Nov. 27.

Lloyd Memorial is in the state football semifinals for the first time since 2003. The Juggernauts knocked off Breathitt County last week for their fifth straight win.

Lloyd is now 10-3 on the season and will face neighbor Beechwood in Friday night’s semifinal match-up with a trip to the Class 2A state championship on the line.

BEECHWOOD HIGH SCHOOL TIGERS FOOTBALL

Despite losing their star player (Mitchell Berger) earlier in the season, the Tigers have not missed a beat – but have handed out a string of beatdowns. Beechwood is now 12-1 on the year and is riding an eight-game winning streak into this week’s semifinal match-up against Lloyd in Ft. Mitchell.

One of these teams will advance to the Class 2A state championship in Lexington.
