In the opening game of the 2015 Forcht Bank King of the Bluegrass it was Top 25 opponents Ballard (3-4) and North Hardin (7-1). A slow start for the Bruins, which made just 3/18 first quarter field goals, put Ballard behind 9-7 at the quarter break. A 10-4 run by Ballard in the opening half of the second quarter pushed the Bruins ahead 17-14. The Trojans couldn't get any closer with Ballard taking their largest lead of the game 21-15 at halftime. The two teams shot a combined 22.4% in the opening half.

A Tony Jackson three-pointer helped North Hardin cut the Ballard lead to 21-20 three minutes into the second half. The Trojans Will Alexander tied the game at 26-26 with 1:35 remaining in the third quarter but Jamil Wilson put the Bruins back ahead 28-27 going into the fourth quarter. A putback by Tony Jackson gave the Trojans their first lead of the second half on the opening basket of the quarter. Jackson's three-pointer mid-way through the quarter pushed the North Hardin lead to 42-37. Ballard's Clivante Patterson pulled the Bruins within 42-41 with 2:40 remaining in play. Four straight free throws by the Bruins tied the game at 45-45 with just 1:17 remaining. The teams traded baskets in the final minute before North Hardin's Tony Jackson netted a floater from the lane at the buzzer to give North Hardin the 49-47 victory.

North Hardin's Tony Jackson led all scorers with a double-double performance that included 24 points and 19 rebounds and 5 blocks. Brandon Maxwell added 10 points for the Trojans. Jamil Wilson led Ballard with 13 points.
