Mayfield proved they deserved the No. 1 ranking for now, but they have to continue to play at a high level to do so as Tilghman, McCracken, Marshall, and Graves all are playing well and can make a run to the top. Meanwhile Community Christian and St. Mary are playing surprisingly well and have moved out of the bottom of the rankings. The big news is that Zion Harmon maybe close to playing for the Marshals, we will see, in the meantime here are the rankings for week 2.

1. Mayfield – Coach Chris Guhy
BGP #9
2018-19 record: 1-2
Week’s Record: 1-2
Mayfield silenced any Region 1 critics by defeating Paducah Tilghman in their season opener. However, they travelled to Memphis and played two nationally ranked teams and got destroyed. They were without two starters in those losses, but they did not look good. Another big game awaits the Cardinals this week against McCracken County. We will see if they have recovered from the drubbing they received in Tennessee.

2. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas
2018-19 record: 3-1
Week’s Record: 0-1
Paducah Tilghman won their first 3 games in hoping it would be good preparation for Region 1 favorite, Mayfield. However, things didn’t turn out like they wanted as they were defeated 62-56. They can’t dwell long on the loss as Graves County awaits them this week, and could mean a shake up in the rankings.

3. Graves County – Coach Joshua Frick
2018-19 record: 5-1
Week’s Record: 2-1
The Eagles had a tough game against Murray this past week squeaking out a win by 2 points. They played Calloway County and defeated them solidly before heading to Memphis to play Briarcrest Christian. It wasn’t a pretty game as Graves lost by almost 30 points. This week, there is a tough game at home against Paducah Tilghman.

4. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower
2018-19 record: 4-0
Week’s Record: 2-0
The Mustangs continue their hot start by defeating Calloway County and Cairo, IL. The Mustangs have the chance to show they are for real. They play two top 20 BGP teams at home, Mayfield and Bowling Green. It can be a huge successful week, or a good learning experience. Maybe a bit of both.

5. Marshall County – Terry Birdsong
2018-19 record: 3-2
Week’s Record: 2-0
Marshall County rebounded nicely this week by defeating Carlisle County and Christian Brothers from Tennessee. They will play Murray this week before heading to Washington DC to play in the National Monument Hoop Fest.
BTW...Zion Harmon is now on Marshall County roster, but until he sees the court, the Marshals will remain here in the rankings.

6. Murray – Coach Dior Curtis
2018-19 record: 1-4
Week’s Record: 0-2
Murray has played much better than their record shows. They were a last second shot from defeated Graves County this week before having a subpar showing against Christian Brothers in Memphis. The Tigers can make a big statement by defeating Marshall County this week in the only opponent they face.

7 Carlisle County – Coach Brian O’Neil
2018-19 record: 3-2
Week’s Record: 2-1
The Comets defeated Hickman County 82-55 and CCA 53-30 after losing to Marshall County 56-68. Reese Anderson leads Carlisle in scoring with 15.6 ppg.


8. Calloway County – Coach Brad Cleaver
2018-19 record: 1-4
Week’s Record: 0-3
The Lakers had a very tough week after winning their first game of the season. Calloway faced some tough teams in McCracken Co, Graves Co, and Hopkins County Central. This week gives some relief, but the games will still be tough against Webster Co and Hickman Co.

9. Fulton County – Coach Jamie Madding
2018-19 record: 1-2
Week’s Record: 1-1
The Pilots got their first win of the season 78-37 versus Christian Fellowship. They will not play a team from Kentucky until Dec 27, a rematch with CF.

10. St. Mary – Coach Greg Overstreet
2018-19 record: 3-2
Week’s Record: 1-1
St. Mary looked pretty good so far this year. With the exception of the first game, the Vikings have played well and they have surprised a lot of people. We will really see what they are made out of as they play the top two teams in the region this week as a visiting team. If they can keep it close, it will say a lot.

11. Community Christian Paducah – Coach Daniel Durrett
2018-19 record: 1-3
Week’s Record: 1-1
The Warriors are playing competition much closer this season, and got a surprise win at home versus Ballard Memorial. So far, 2 of their losses have come by a total of 6 points. There could be many wins on the horizon.

12. Ballard Memorial – Coach Marla Cooper
2018-19 record: 2-3
Week’s Record: 1-2
The Bombers defeated Christian Fellowship, but fell to St. Mary and Community Christian. They have tough games against Graves County and McCracken County upcoming.



13. Hickman County – Coach Wynn Harris
2018-19 record: 1-4
Week’s Record: 1-1
Hickman has had a rough go of it so far this season. They did get their first win against a team from Gleason, TN, however every Kentucky team they have faces this season has defeated them soundly. They will try and change that when they play Ballard Memorial and Christian Fellowship.


14. Fulton City – Coach Jon Dillard
2018-19 record: 1-4
Week’s Record: 0-2
Fulton dropped 2 games this week to Tennessee teams. They were not a threat in either game. They play Carlisle County this week.


[B]Player of the Week
Reese Anderson, Carlisle County. Anderson scored 24 points, including 4 treys, en route to defeating Hickman County. He is now averaging 15.6 ppg on the season.
