BluegrassPreps.com 13th Region Boys Basketball Preview

By Les - 13th Region Rankings 1. South Laurel (0-0 overall, 0-0 vs. 13th Region competition) The Cardinals return the best one-two punch in the 13th Region in JJ Ramey (19.3 points per game) and Matt Cromer (13.1). Ramey is the best player in the 13th Region while Cromer is right behind him at the No. 2 spot. If South Laurel is going to win its first region title since making a run to the Final Four a few years ago, the Cardinals must get production out of players such as Alex Hostettler (4.0), Brett Norvell (2.5) and Matt Dalton. 2. Knox Central (0-0, 0-0) The Panthers return a group of... Read More →

By ATLCat - Walton-Verona Earns First Semi-Finals Appearance Sometimes you just come to defining moment in your journey. Some people call it "watershed", some call it "turning point", but at the end of the day it is an opportunity to change your trajectory for the better. Walton-Verona may have found that moment Friday in their 18-14 win over visiting Glasgow. This was Walton-Verona's second Regional Finals in the program's relatively young history, but it was arguably their first real chance to make a statement and truly push their program forward to the next level. The win not only secures their... Read More →


3A Notebook: Big Three Advance along with a Surprise

By gchs_uk9 - Boyle County Win over Belfry Worth the Wait On May 13, 2014, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association released the final copy of the football alignment for 2015-18. In Class 3A, the obvious change was the addition of Boyle County, who had won seven state titles at that point, to the existing dominance of Belfry, who had won four titles at that point and would go on to win two more. Much discussion was had about who would be the best team in Class 3A: would it be Belfry, dominant for so long? Or would it be Boyle County, who'd toiled in Class 4A for the better part of a decade but was... Read More →

By silo11 - Defending Region 2 Champions: University Heights Academy Best Regular Season Region 2 Record: University Heights (15-2) Last year was a down year for Region 2 basketball. Both Hopkinsville and Christian County has huge expectations as some of the top players in their programs were seniors.

By silo11 - Defending Region 1 Champions: McCracken County Mustangs Best Regular Season Region 1 Record: Mayfield Cardinals (17-0) Region 1 last year had some very entertaining movement throughout the season.

However Graves Co and McCracken Co ended up in the finals with the Mustangs moving on to the Sweet 16. This year may not be much different than last year with a clear favorite to win the Region being Mayfield. They went undefeated in the regular season and they have the same basic... Read More →

By DragonFire - https://www.riteaid.com/shop/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/0/7/071662003203.jpg The 4A playoffs basically summed up in a single image. We're through two rounds of the 4A state playoffs. Two road teams have won in the sixteen games played, one in each round.

The margin may have been unexpected, but those were two teams that were considered basically even. But that... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook: Hooray for Murray, DeSales Wins the Horse Race

By ATLCat - Murray Stuns Owensboro Catholic, Take Aim at Mayfield Trailing 26-0 in the First Half, it appeared as if the heavy underdog Murray Tigers were more likely to have a running clock rather than a potential shocking First-Round win. Murray never faltered in the face of adversity and just executed key drive after key drive, coupled with a Defensive effort that held the high-powered Aces' Offense to only one score as the Tigers rallied to outscore them 41-6. Owensboro Catholic failed to score in the Second Half. Mark Thompson began the turn around with a pair of scores. Jaiden Jackson would... Read More →
