Scott County head coach Billy Hicks earned career win No. 1,000 tonight when the Cardinals knocked off Frederick Douglass 70-38.
In a classy show of respect, Douglass took a timeout late in the game to honor Coach Hicks:
This was cool: Douglass takes a timeout and honors Billy Hicks for his 1,000th win in KHSAA history about 20 seconds before its official. pic.twitter.com/TZ1Jf9pMyB

How impressive is 1,000 wins? If a coach averages 25 wins per season…it will take that coach 40 years to get to 1,000. That’s quite an accomplishment.
Congratulations to Coach Hicks! He’s one of the all-time greats in Kentucky high school basketball history.
