#1 versus #2 did not disappoint this week in their second game in two weeks, while the lower part of the region beat up on each other. Calloway almost pulled a big upset going into double overtime with Graves, and Mayfield represented region 1 in the All A State Tournament. Here is this weeks rankings:

1. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower
BGP #11
2018-19 record: 19-3
Week’s Record: 3-0

The Mustangs had an early easy week leading up to and #1 and #2 ranked teams in the region. They disposed of Carlisle County and St Mary. Two weeks ago Graves County defeated McCracken 67-56. This time, it would be for the number 1 ranking in region 1. The two teams didn’t disappoint. It was a great back and forth game and in the end, the Mustangs came out on top 66-62. Jackson Sivills carried the team on his back as he scored 30 points, allowing them to keep their #1 ranking in the region and top 10 ranking in the BGP. Marshall County awaits the Mustangs on Saturday.

2. Graves County – Coach Joshua Frick
2018-19 record: 17-6
Week’s Record: 2-1

The Eagles had a pretty tough schedule this week hosting Hopkinsville, and McCracken, and going to Calloway County. They started well by defeating an improving Hoptown team 66-52. They survived a surprise game with Calloway. It went into double overtime and Graves finally came out on top 82-77. The biggest game of the week was against the top team in Region 1. Graves played a great game, but just couldn’t beat them a second time. They can’t sit on the loss as they will go to Paducah Tilghman and Marshall County this week.

3. Mayfield – Coach Chris Guhy
BGP #18
2018-19 record: 16-7
Week’s Record: 1-1

Mayfield played in the All “A” State Classic this week. The goal was at the least to make the finals, but the Cardinals have the talent to win it. They started well as they dominated Campbellsville 70-43. They then ran into eventual finalist Lexington Christian. Mayfield fell behind early and then came storming back. They got to 36-33 with a couple minutes left in the 3rd, but couldn’t finish it. LCA pulled away eventually winning 62-50, ending the Cardinals run at the All A Classic.

4. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas
2018-19 record: 10-8
Week’s Record: 1-0

Paducah Tilghman only played one game this week, but it was a tough one again versus Marshall County. Amirion Joyce scored 20 points in leading the Tornado to a close 66-62 win. Tilghman is right in the middle of the toughest streak of games on their schedule. They are 2-2 during that streak. They will wrap up this group of games by hosting Graves County on Tuesday. After that they get some reprieve as they play St. Mary.


5. Murray – Coach Dior Curtis
2018-19 record: 9-11
Week’s Record: 0-0

Murray did not play last week. They will play St. Mary and Calloway County this week.

6. Marshall County – Terry Birdsong
2018-19 record: 9-13
Week’s Record: 0-3

Marshall County lost a close game to Paducah Tilghman before boarding a plane and heading out to Napa, California to play in the Crush in the Valley Classic. They played Bishop O’Dowd (CA) and St. Patrick-St.Vincent (CA), and unfortunately lost both games by 3 points. Jonathan Stokes led the Marshalls in both games. Things don’t get easier for Marshall County as they will have to play Graves and McCracken by Saturday.

7. Calloway County – Coach Brad Cleaver
2018-19 record: 10-12
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Lakers have played very well the second half of the season and they didn’t let up this week. After easily defeating Christian Fellowship, Calloway County gave Graves County all they could handle and took them into double overtime before bowing out 82-77. Chandler Steele and Cade Butler both scored 19 points and 3 other scored at least 10 in the loss. The next three games will be very difficult. They will host Mayfield and Murray before travelling to McCracken County .

8 Carlisle County – Coach Brian O’Neil
2018-19 record: 12-10
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Comets were reminded that they still have a lot of growing to do as the Mustangs of McCracken defeated them 72-46. However, Carlisle turned around and did the same thing to Ballard Memorial, winning 73-44. They should win all 3 games this week as they play Fulton County, Fulton City, and Community Christian. The first will be the toughest however.

9. Fulton County – Coach Jamie Madding
2018-19 record: 9-10
Week’s Record: 2-1

The Pilots are really pushing to reach the .500 for the season. Things didn’t go well down in Tennessee, so we won’t talk about that, however, things did go well here in Kentucky as they defeated Ballard Memorial and Community Christian. They will play 3 more games this week as their quest for .500 continues.

10. St. Mary – Coach Greg Overstreet
2018-19 record: 10-11
Week’s Record: 0-1

St. Mary lost their only game this week 60-29 to McCracken County. They have upcoming games versus Murray and Paducah Tilghman along with Lyon County.

11. Community Christian Paducah – Coach Daniel Durrett
2018-19 record: 6-12
Week’s Record: 0-1

The Warriors suffered a disappointing loss to Fulton County 55-49. Things won’t get better as they start the week playing McCracken before playing winnable games against Dawson Springs and Christian Fellowship.

12. Hickman County – Coach Wynn Harris
2018-19 record: 6-13
Week’s Record: 1-1

Hickman lost Ballard Memorial 63-55 while defeating Fulton City 59-53. They will play Christian Fellowship and Fulton County this week.

13. Fulton City – Coach Jon Dillard
2018-19 record: 6-16
Week’s Record: 0-4

Lots of games for Fulton City this past week, however not a lot of wins, zero to be exact. The Bulldogs fell to South Fulton (TN), Hickman County, Trigg County, and Lake County (TN). The first two were close, but Fulton just couldn’t get over the hump.

14. Ballard Memorial – Coach Marla Cooper
2018-19 record: 3-14
Week’s Record: 1-2

The Bombers won just their 3rd game of the season, defeating Hickman County 63-55. Things didn’t go as well in the other two games losing by 30 to Fulton County and Carlisle County.


15. Christian Fellowship – Coach Tyler Ryan
2018-19 record: 3-18
Week’s Record: 0-2

Christian Fellowship lost to Calloway County and Livingston Central. They will have a rubber match against Community Christian before playing Fort Campbell.
