By All State Baseball - Well folks it's that time again. Basketball in the Bluegrass. The 14th Region has been an exciting one over the past several years and this season shouldn't be any different with any of the top 5 teams capable of bringing home the hardware. 1) Hazard Bulldogs: Hazard made it to the regional championship game last season but came up short to crosstown rival, Perry County Central 53-48. The Bulldogs open up the 2019/20 season as the odds on favorite to claim the 14th region crown with both leading scorers, Logan Hall and Wade Pelphrey returning along with a good core of players could make...

By Smallhoops - The Butler Bears prevailed as the champions of the Sixth Region last season, putting an end to Fern Creek’s two-year streak as regional champion. With several key contributors returning, Coach K.C. Goodin is sure to have the Bears at or near the top of the region again this year. But Fern Creek’s outstanding trio of sophomores return as an outstanding trio of juniors. And they won’t be the only challengers for Sixth Region supremacy, as there are a number of teams that might end up at the top of the heap by season’s end. As has been the case the past several years, the competition in... Read More →

1A Notebook - The New and Improved? Round 3

By Voice of Reason - The BGP 1A predictions are clicking on all cylinders going 8 for 8 in predicting the teams left standing as we enter round 3. As we all well know now, round 3 is where the new KHSAA RPI finally kicks in. That also puts a twist in the bracketing and it had an immediate impact in year one. Instead of the brackets flowing straight out by district, the RPI has shifted opponents around on both sides of the state. Here are the RPI standings for the final eight in 1A with their overall ranking in the entire class in parenthesis at the end: 1. Kentucky Country Day ………… .81404 (1) 2. Pikeville... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps Mr. Football Watchlist (11/20)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Round 2: Beau Allen closed out his illustrious high school career on a sour note, throwing a couple of interceptions in a 54-7 loss to Boyle County. On the bright side, he'll never have to see the Rebels (aka, the bane of his existence) again. Though his career may not have ended in the fashion he would have preferred, Allen has left an indelible mark on both Lexington Catholic football and the KHSAA record books. He ranks fifth all time in both career passing yards (11,439) and touchdown passes (127) Season to date: 234/341 for 3,682... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 11/20- The Best Is Yet to Come or Already Happened?

By ATLCat - WEST So how did we get here? In District 1, Mayfield did exactly what you would expect Mayfield to do. The Cardinals did not necessarily explode out of the gates against Murray, but once they got going it was an avalanche of points that ensued as Mayfield polished off the Tigers 56-24. Jayden Stinson was superb throwing for over 300 yards and 6 TD's. Moving to District 2, we got the playoff upset we all love seeing. McLean County shocked Owensboro Catholic by following the blueprint laid out last week in The Notebook to secure a 36-36 shocker. The Cougars had two backs eclipse the... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (11/19) - Round 2 Recap

By DragonFire - District 1 We start with District 1, but they were the last game played in the state this week for any class. With the snow days earlier in the week, it was agree to delay the #8 Hopkinsville/#7 Madisonville-North Hopkins game until mid-day on Saturday. Tens of Tiger fans lined the home side. Unlike the first matchup where Madisonville got out to a great start, it was the Tigers who jumped out first with a long and sloooow march up the field, draining nearly 7 minutes on the game’s opening drive to take a 7-0 lead. The Tigers briefly held a 14-0 lead before settling into a 14-7... Read More → 2nd Region Boys Basketball Preview

By silo11 - Defending Region 2 Champions: Madisonville North-Hopkins Last Year was the first year in a very long time a team from District 8 didn’t win the Region 2 Championship. This will be the first time in a long time that a District 8 team didn’t sit a top the preseason standings. In fact, it has been a while since there was so much separation between first place and second place. Madisonville North-Hopkins is the team to beat hands down this year. If they do not win the Region 2 championship, it will be considered a big upset. After that it gets really tricky on the rankings. Some... Read More →

Class 6A Notebook (11/18): Regional Championships

By Tigerpride94 - 6A Notebook: Regional Championships After two rounds of District play, we are down to 8 teams with the four winners of this round being regional champions. Four of the top 5 teams remain with #1 Male, #2 Trinity, #4 North Hardin, and #5 St. Xavier. No surprise that Male and Trinity are still alive as they have dominated this decade with winning multiple championships. North Hardin looks to be the best chance for an outside of Jefferson County team to win a championship. Oldham County in their first year of 6A makes it to the regional round. #9 Simon Kenton has played well of late which now... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (11/17): The champ gets KO'd and Cinderella arrives at the ball

By DevilMayCare - The new playoff format ensured that, one way or another, we'd be saying goodbye to a couple of state powers earlier than usual in the postseason. Scott County did what most expected and played better football in their rematch with Frederick Douglass, but were ultimately outclassed by a superior opponent. And South Warren couldn't overcome its offensive struggles against Bowling Green this season, suffering their earliest playoff exit in eight years. That game was one of four that went down to the wire. Before casting our gaze upon the quarterfinals, let's take a look back at the events of... Read More →

3A Notebook: Familiarity Breeds Humiliation in Half Dozen Round Two Romps

By gchs_uk9 - District Championship Week Turns into Blowout Friday When the KHSAA implemented intra-district postseason play in 2019 it was guaranteed that the first two rounds would be rematches of regular season games. Six of the eight district championship games played Friday pitted a one seed versus a two, and the two three seeds that won first round games (Union County and Christian Academy of Louisville) were hardly surprises. If you expected round two to be more competitive that the regular season game, you had another thing coming. Average margin of victory in the first meetings between...

By ApolloFan98 - 1. Owensboro Red Devils Coach: Rod Drake -- Last Year: 23-8 - 3rd Region & 9th District Champions Key Losses: Darion Wimsatt 19 ppg Outlook: The Red Devils defeated Breckenridge County in overtime, to win the 3rd Region title last season. An injury to their best player, Darion Wimsatt may have cost them in the Sweet 16, but the Devils are primed for another run in 2020. They return a ton of size in their front court in Gavin Wimsatt (10 ppg / 7 rpg), Jaden Greathouse ( 9ppg / 6 rpg) and Issac Humphrey. They also return Amari Robinson Wales, who is coming of a big sophomore season. Expect... Read More →

6A Notebook: District Championships

By Tigerpride94 - 6A Notebook: District Championships We are now into the second round of the playoffs where the remaining teams will play for their district championship. The first round was dominated by the higher seeds winning in every case but one. The lone lower seed winning was Dixie Heights over Ryle and that was a 2 vs 3 matchup. The second round has some better matchups that we’ll look at. District 1 #1 McCracken County (8-3) is coming off a great performance in all phases with a 57-0 victory over #4 Apollo (4-7). #2 Henderson County (8-3) defeated #3 Daviess County 36-16 with a good...

By ColonelMike - Region 8 2019-20 Boy’s Basketball Preview By Colonelmike In 2019, “the streak” came to an end in the 8th Region. Since re-districting occurred before the 2006 region tournament, the 8th Region title has been the exclusive property of the “South End” – namely, the two southernmost districts, district 29 and district 30. For thirteen consecutive seasons, five teams from those two districts monopolized the titles, with Oldham County claiming 4 region championships, followed by South Oldham (3), Shelby County (3), Collins (2), and Anderson County (1). The last time the 31st or the... Read More → 1st Region Boys Basketball Preview

By silo11 - Defending Region 1 Champions: Mayfield Cardinals Region 1 last year had some very entertaining movement throughout the season. Lots of talent throughout the region made for some very exciting games. Mayfield was the preseason favorite but dropped games in the early going. McCracken showed they were a tremendous force and opened a lot of eyes on how quickly they can rebuild. Marshall County looked like it would have a great team, but Harmon was ruled ineligible and the season didn’t turn out like people had hoped. Graves County had one of their most talented teams and had a fantastic... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps Mr. Football Watchlist (11/13)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Round 1: Allen guided the Knights past Bourbon County, 43-23, with 244 yards of total offense and five touchdowns - three passing, two rushing. Attention quickly shifts to Round 2 at Boyle County. For the future Kentucky Wildcat, all roads lead through Danville. His status as one of the state's best quarterback prospects in recent memory has long been secured, but the Rebels have proven themselves a persistent barrier between him and a deep playoff run. For all of his accolades, he has yet to advance beyond a region final. This Friday... Read More →
