Ashland 16th Region Champions/State Preview

By Carson Palmer - The Tomcats saved their best for last in winning their 33rd regional championship and first since 2002. First year head coach Jason Mays pushed all the right buttons in Morehead this past week. The Tomcats struggled to a 14-16 regular season mark playing a rugged schedule that included three Sweet 16 squads. It proved to be the right formula to produce a region title. Ashland squeaked by Lewis County in round 1, then pulled the upset of the season by knocking off Elliott County in overtime, and finished off their improbable run by beating rival Boyd County in their fifth matchup of the...

9th Region Championship Preview

By PP1 - Well considering that Bluesport kind of stole my thunder a little last night, this article is probably pointless, but I said I was going to do it and I try to keep me word. Only two 9th region teams left standing. One of them is a regular visitor to the championship game and the other is not. For the third time in 2019 the Tigers and the Colonels will battle. I was a little disappointed this week. For all the talk and anticipation regarding the 9th region tournament, there were not many intense 4th quarters. Saturday night has the potential to be a game that we cite for the next ten... Read More →

Seventh Region Championship Preview - the more things change . . .

By Smallhoops - I thought this year would be different. The Waggener Wildcats had their best season ever. They had only lost 3 times this season, an early season loss to St. X and two subsequent losses to Trinity. It had beaten Ballard 80-74 on December 4, the first time Waggener had ever beaten Ballard. Their collection of seniors, led by JJ Kalakon, is the best group of seniors in the Seventh Region. This was going to be the Wildcatsí year. If Waggener wants to see the Seventh Region championship game, they will need to stand in line and buy tickets to the game, just like every other... Read More →

Seventh Region Semi-Finals Preview

By Smallhoops - The first round of the Seventh Region tournament gave us Trinity v. Male, along with three other games; the second round now gives us Waggener v. Ballard and Trinity v. Eastern. Should be a good night of basketball Thursday night at Valley. Waggener Wildcats (29-3) v. Ballard Bruins (22-11) Prior to this season, Ballard had beaten Waggener each of the 70 times they had played. That streak ended on December 4 of this season when Waggener beat Ballard 80-74. Over the course of the season, Waggener has shown that it is one of the best teams in the state, losing only 3 times (two of... Read More →

11th Region Tournament Preview

By mooremiller31 - So it’s come to this! The final 8 left in the toughest region in the state. Everyone knows if you can get through this gauntlet and make it to Rupp Arena you can chase a bigger dream. One team has dominated this region all year but over the last week we’ve seen that it’s not an open and shut case as we all previously thought! Paul Laurence Dunbar vs. Frankfort The Panthers enter this matchup as the 41st District champions and with a school record 27 wins. The Panthers have been ranked towards the top of the region all year long and have lived up to the hype thus far. The three headed... Read More →

2nd Region Tournament Preview

By silo11 - The second region has been about two teams all year long. Right from the beginning, University Heights and Madisonville North-Hopkins showed they were the cream of the crop, and things never changed. For UHA, its about the continued 8th district dominance within the region. Since 2001, an 8th district team has won the region 2 title and advanced to Rupp Arena. The closest any team has come in recent memory to snap that streak was in 2015 when David Simmons and Henderson County dominated throughout the year, but fell to Hopkinsville in the semis. Madisonville-North Hopkins has the... Read More →

15th Region Tournament Preview

By 15th Region - District Tournament Recap: We were able to correctly predict 7 of the 8 regional tournament teams with one of the districts being perfect on winner and runner-up (57th). Competitive Balance has been the name of the game this season and didnít seem to slow down during the first week of the tournament. This should be one of the best regional tournaments in years as the draw could set up one of the biggest nights in 15th Region semifinal history. Upsets happen, however, as survive and advance is the name of the game this week. Below we break down the 15th region tournament and every... Read More →

1st Region Tournament Preview

By silo11 - The end of the road for all but one team in Region 1 is upon us. All the hard work these teams have put is about to come to a conclusion. Here is a very short recap of what happened in region 1 this season. Mayfield started out as the preseason number 1 since they went undefeated in the regular season in region play last year, and they didnít lose anything. They struggled out of the gate however and fell out of that number one spot. Paducah Tilghman lost a lot, but had some significant transfer additions and looked as they could be in it all season. The talent was there, but they... Read More →

16th Region Tournament Preview

By Carson Palmer - Game #1 ELLIOTT COUNTY vs BATH COUNTY The Lions definitely got the best opening round matchup on paper. The Wildcats have struggled down the stretch and will need a huge effort to knock off Elliott County. Look for the senior trio of Korbin Spencer, Gage Evans, and Tanner Dickerson to lead the Lions into the region semifinals on Friday. Prediction: ELLIOTT COUNTY Game #2 LEWIS COUNTY vs ASHLAND This game could be the best of the first round matchups. The Lions are on a ten-game winning streak and have the best fan following in the 16th Region. Sam O'Keefe and Seth Wright lead the... Read More →

10th Region Tournament Preview

By mcpapa - It's tenth region tournament time in Maysville. Nothing like it. Arguably the best high-school basketball atmosphere in the Commonwealth; and that's saying something. Seating for 5400 on wooden bleachers when the stage is opened up. The two state championship trophies and the uni shirts of Lyons, Feldhaus, Lofton and Miller in the trophy case as you walk in. Popcorn and pep bands (check out Mason County's version of that high-school pep band standard, Free Bird). Cars parked all the way out to U.S. Highway 68. If you're a high school hoops fan, it doesn't get any better than this. Win... Read More →

By ColonelMike - 8th Region Tournament Preview Week 1 of the “second season” is in the books – and nine of the seventeen 8th region teams are done for the season. Eight survivors remain, and they face a three-game gauntlet in order to reach the Sweet 16. For the most part, the results were what most expected, although Grant County gave an Spoints. In the 29th, North Oldham gave Oldham County a real scare in the semis, before fading late and losing, 59-53. Before taking a look at the 8th Region tournament, let’s look at how the districts played out. 29th District Read More →

3rd Region Tournament Preview

By ApolloFan98 - Monday at 6pm - Breckenridge County (24-3) v Ohio County (15-15) Breckenridge rolls into the 3rd Region Tournament with the best overall record in the region.

Poole comes into the regional tournament as the top scorer, putting up 20.7 points per game. The Tigers knocked off Ohio County 76-58 back on February 1st. Ohio County has been inconsistent all season, but they are dangerous. They have shown the ability to be a very physical team that can shoot the three.... Read More →
