10th Region Week 8 Review - Tighter at the Top

By mcpapa - The 10th's number 1 took a slight tumble last week in a tough road contest; while #2 looks to be close to tournament form once again. Numbers 3 and 4 staged an epic battle in the 2A, and the regional All-A is in full swing. 1. Campbell County (13-4, 5-0 region, 2-0 37th District). The Camels played a single game last week, venturing to the 8th region where Walton-Verona handed them a 54-48 loss. Campbell hit on an uncharacteristic 38% from the field and 56% from the line in defeat. Reid Jolly notched typical numbers with a 26/11 double-double, but no other Camel reached double...

16th Region Week 8 Review: Typical January

By Carson Palmer - You often hear the term "Tuesday Nights in January" in coaching circles. Translation: strange scores in January. The excitement of December turns into the grind of January leading to the pinnacle of the season: the postseason. Russell turned a 39 point loss in December to Bath County into a 16 point win. Bath County notched an upset over West Carter in the All A regional. Fairview pulled a mild upset over Raceland as well. Rowan County survived a couple tough games but one constant remained Elliott County steamrolled its way to another All A regional title. 1. ELLIOTT COUNTY (15-2) The... Read More →

Knox Central (17-3 overall, 5-1 vs. 13th Region opponents) The Panthers once again find themselves atop the 13th Region Rankings after reaching the 2A Classic title game before falling to John Hardin, 83-60.

South Laurel (18-2, 10-0) The Cardinals are the only team that hasn’t lost to a Region team yet, and their two losses have come against teams ranked in the Top 25.

9th Region Week 8 Review: Newport wins the All A!!!

By PP1 - This year’s All A Tournament did not disappoint. Several games came down to the final possession and the Newport Wildcats had to play hard and communicate defensively in order to win the tournament. I believe that since Newport had to execute late in these games, it may have prepared them for tough competition at EKU. The region’s top two teams do have big games this week as Covington Catholic hosts Campbell County and Cooper travels to Conner. This is an exciting time of year as we see the various districts solidify their post-season seeds. 1. Covington Catholic (16-5): Covington... Read More →


1st Region Week 8 Review

By silo11 - Things finished up in the Region 1 All A Classic this week as Mayfield came out on top as expected. No real change in the rankings, however that could change as Graves County and McCracken meet this week to see who is on top. Marshall County and Tilghman play this week as well, which could have repercussions on the rankings. Here is the week 8 rankings: 1. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower BGP #11 2018-19 record: 4-3 Week’s Record: 2-1 The Mustangs went to Massac County, Illinois for the Superman Classic where they were the number 1 seed. In their first game they handily... Read More →


8th Region Week 8 Review - Collins Stays at #1

By ColonelMike - Week 8 gave us a little more insight into how this season will play out… Simon Kenton beat Grant County by 17 in a District 32 game. Grant hasn’t played Walton-Verona yet, but they are going to have to make up some ground against one of those two if this team – winners of fourteen games already – is to make the region tourney. Walton-Verona beat #14 (per the Bluegrasspreps poll) Campbell County, 54-48, the best win for an 8th region team versus a team from another region this week. Oldham County slammed North Oldham by 15 in a rivalry matchup in District 29. Spencer County... Read More →


5th Region Week 8 Review: Bulldogs Win 2A Classic

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (21-0): The Bulldogs continue their amazing season by winning all four games this week which included winning the 2A Classic. They beat district opponent Elizabethtown 94-86 at home, they beat Scott in first round 67-56, beat Glasgow 67-40 in semis, and beat Knox Central 83-60 in title game.

Alex Matthews was the MVP of the 2A Tournament. 2. Larue County (14-3): The Hawks took care of business this week and... Read More →


14th Region Week 8 Review: Only One Change To The Top 5.

By All State Baseball - Another week in the basketball season has came and gone. We seen a lot of movement in the top 5 this season but this week, we only had one movement within the top 5. With that said, let's take a look back at week 8 in the 14th region. 1) Knott County Central (13-6): After hitting a rough spot during Christmas break, the Patriots have kicked it into another gear and have won 8 streak including last week's two wins.

12th Region Week 8 Review: Shifting Sands

By TDC - Week 8 was yet another exciting one in the 12th Region. There were several games that came down to a last-second shot, some near upsets of state powers by 12th Region teams, and some terrific individual performances. The not-so-shocking revelation for the week: there is a really good team or two in the 45th District who will not be playing in the 12th Region Tournament. Danville looks to be on path for the #1 seed in that District, while Boyle and Lincoln may be battling for #2, and Garrard County will have a say before all is said and done. I would not want to be the team that draws any... Read More →


7th Region Week 8 Review - With David Johnson Back, Trinity Is Looking Strong

By Smallhoops - Congratulations to the Trinity Shamrocks, winners of the 72nd Louisville Invitational Tournament. Seventh Region teams fared well in the LIT, with the semi-finals made up of four Seventh Region teams (Trinity, Waggener, Ballard, and Seneca). In fact, three of those teams (Trinity, Waggener, and Seneca) are all in the 27th district. Looking ahead, it will be a shame that one of those teams will not make it to the Seventh Region tournament. Congratulations also go out to the Christian Academy Centurions, who advanced to the semi-finals of the 2A tournament in Owensboro. The Centurions... Read More →
