Things finished up in the Region 1 All A Classic this week as Mayfield came out on top as expected. No real change in the rankings, however that could change as Graves County and McCracken meet this week to see who is on top. Marshall County and Tilghman play this week as well, which could have repercussions on the rankings. Here is the week 8 rankings:

1. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower
BGP #11
2018-19 record: 4-3
Week’s Record: 2-1

The Mustangs went to Massac County, Illinois for the Superman Classic where they were the number 1 seed. In their first game they handily defeated Fort Campbell, 66-27. In their second game they were surprised by Charleston, MO 50-44. They rebounded nicely against Goreville, IL 53-47. McCracken plays 3 games this week, none bigger than when they travel to Graves County on Saturday. They lost at home by 11 points early in January, the only Kentucky team the Mustangs have lost to this season.

2. Graves County – Coach Joshua Frick
2018-19 record: 13-4
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Eagles also traveled to the Superman Classic where they were the number 3 seed Their first game was against Goreville, IL where they lost 65-55. This is an interesting game, because McCracken defeated Goreville by 6. They went on to defeat Vienna, IL by almost 30, and then defeated host Massac County 69-60. Graves has a tough schedule the rest of the month as they play host to Hopkinsville and McCracken County this week and travel to Calloway County, Paducah Tilghman, and Marshall County going into early February.

3. Mayfield – Coach Chris Guhy
BGP #18
2018-19 record: 15-6
Week’s Record: 3-0

Mayfield is rounding into form at the right time of year. They had what looked like 2 easy games this week (CCA and Fulton Co.) and a tougher game against Murray in the Region 1 All “A” State Classic. It turned out to be 3 easy games as they defeated CCA by 38, Fulton Co by 24, and surprisingly Murray by 30. They will now move to the All A State Tournament where their first round game will be against Campbellsville.

4. Murray – Coach Dior Curtis
2018-19 record: 9-11
Week’s Record: 2-1

Murray was focused on the 1st Region All A Classic this week. The opened against Hickman County and defeated them 77-39. They faced a tougher challenge in the second round, Carlisle County. Hunter and Duffy scored 17 and 15 to lead the Tigers to a a 54-46 victory. This led them to the championship game against Mayfield. They only lost to Mayfield by 9 in late December and hoped for a closer game, but it wasn’t to happen as BGP #18 Mayfield manhandled the Tigers 79-49.

5. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas
2018-19 record: 9-8
Week’s Record: 0-1

Paducah Tilghman only played one game this week, but it was a tough one at Madinsonville-Norht Hopkins. Michael Laster scored 19 points and Thomas Rodriguez had 14, but it wasn’t enough as the Blue Tornado lost 64-61. They will play another tough game this week as they host Marshall County in hopes of staying above .500 on the season.



6. Marshall County – Terry Birdsong
2018-19 record: 9-10
Week’s Record: 1-0

Marshall County is in the opposite seat as Paducah Tilghman this week as they are coming off a win in their only game, a 50 point win against Christian Fellowship. They will hope to jump over Paducah Tilghman in the standings when they play this week. If they can defeat Tilghman, they will move to .500 on the season. It will be a nice boost if they pull it off going into an exciting road trip to Napa, California to play in the “Crush in the Valley” tournament hosted by The Grind Session. They will play St. Patrick St. Vincent (CA).

7. Calloway County – Coach Brad Cleaver
2018-19 record: 9-11
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Lakers lost their first game of the week against Caldwell County 71-63. They were led by Cade Butler with 27 and Chandler Steele with 22. They went on to defeat St. Mary in their second game 61-38 with Kade Mize leading the way with 19. Two games this week will be polar opposites. Calloway should easily defeat Christian Fellowship, but they will be in for a tough game when they host Graves County on Thursday.

8 Carlisle County – Coach Brian O’Neil
2018-19 record: 11-9
Week’s Record: 0-1

The Comets lost their only game this week as they were defeated by Murray 54-46 in the semifinals of the Region 1 All A Classic. They will host McCracken County on Tuesday before Ballard Memorial comes to town on Saturday. Looking toward the end of the season, Carlisle has a great chance of finishing above .500, which will be the first time since the 2015-16 season.

Week’s Record: 0-1
