9th Region District Preview and Final Rankings

By PP1 - Regional Rankings 1. Covington Catholic (24-5): The Colonels beat Madison Central. They begin their trek on Tuesday in Ft. Mitchell as they play the Holy Cross Indians. Some people (not necessarily me) are worried about their free throw shooting. 2. Conner (20-5): The Cougars continue to play well. I did not predict a record as good as 20-5. Are they turning into a Powerhouse? They open district tournament play Wednesday and will probably play Boone County. 3. Highlands (24-3): Highlands lost to St. Henry and beat Beechwood last week. #14 for the Bluebirds hit several... Read More →

But Seneca’s win over Ballard this week suggests that other teams may be involved in deciding who advances to the state tournament from the Seventh Region. The first step in deciding who that team will be occurs on Monday with the start of the 25th-28th district tournaments. Should be a lot of good basketball around town this week!

Sixth Region Final Rankings and Postseason Preview

By Smallhoops - Lest anyone think that Fern Creek and Butler have separated themselves from the rest of the Sixth Region, in the last week of the regular season Fern Creek needed overtime to beat the Doss Dragons and Butler lost to the Jeffersontown Chargers. So I guess we will let things sort themselves out on the court in the post season, which starts in the Sixth Region tomorrow with games in the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd district. It looks like there will be some interesting games this week in the district tournaments. I hope every high school basketball fan can get out and see some of the action this... Read More →

9th Region Week 11 Review: A little more movement but nothing major.

1st Region Week 11 Review

By silo11 - Week Eleven Review: Some clarity took place this week, and some thing became more murky. McCracken County will be the team to beat going into the region tournament. Marshall seemed like they had number two locked up, however Calloway tripped them up this week, and then Murray is still playing strong. Paducah Tilghman took a step back and did not look like a team that could compete against those top three, or even Calloway. Here are the week 11 rankings : 1. McCracken County – BGP #10 Season Record: 24-5 McCracken spent this week trying to put away any doubt they are the number... Read More →
