Sixth Region Week 8 Review: The Butler Bears Roar

By Smallhoops - The big news in the Sixth Region this week came Saturday night when the Butler Bears took down the previously undefeated Elizabethtown Panthers by a 89-68 margin. Quite a win for the Bears, and perhaps Butler is the best team in the region. I chose not to move them up in the rankings this week because Fern Creek, with wins over Moore and Seneca, certainly did nothing to take away from being ranked in the top spot. Fern Creek and Butler don't play each other until February 14, so I guess we'll just continue to watch some really good basketball being played in the Sixth Region and debate the... Read More →

Seventh Region Week 8 Review - Ballard and Male Are On A Collision Course

By Smallhoops - It is hard to escape the thought that Ballard and Male are the top two teams in the Seventh Region. But who is the better of the two? They played each other in the semi-finals of the LIT, with Ballard winning 71-58. That game had lots of people looking forward to the two playing each other again, which happens this coming Friday night at Male. And to make things even more exciting, if anything else is needed, it appears that Male's Howard Fleming will be back for the game. That one has the potential to be a classic. TEAM RANKINGS 1. Ballard Bruins (18-2) Rashad Bishop has... Read More →

By All State Baseball - 1) Hazard (16-3): The Bulldogs come up short in the All "A" State Tournament at EKU McBrayer Arena. Hazard traveled to Richmond this past week to participate in the All "A" State Tournament. The Bulldogs got things started off with a thrilling 42-39 win over Louisville Collegiate thanks to a buzzer beating 3.

By ColonelMike - 8th Region Week 7 Review: The Big Three Don’t Settle the Debate - Yet By Colonelmike Week 7 was about as exciting a week as we’ve had this season, and when the dust settled, Collins, Oldham County, Gallatin County, and Woodford County all owned big victories…South Oldham was left contemplating “what if”…and Anderson County missed an opportunity for some statement wins. And yet – we still don’t have clear separation among the top three teams in the rankings. Although Collins earned a big win on the road against South Oldham in Crestwood, the Titans had to survive by hitting three... Read More →

By se7ens - 1) Somerset (16-2) – The Briar Jumpers punched their ticket for the All A State Tournament where they face 8th region champion Gallatin County in the opening round.
