Week Two Review:

Region One had a Number 1 vs Number 2 early in the season, and the game lived up to the hype with No. 2 McCracken County pulling out the win 63-59 in Marshall. The Mustangs take over the top spot moving Marshall to No. 2. Murray stays at number 3 and could move even higher if they continue to play as they have been. Here is week 2 rankings.

1. McCracken County
Season Record: 3-2

Two big region 1 wins for the Mustangs place them atop the rankings this week. A 65-60 win over Calloway County and a 63-59 win over Marshall County. They did lose to out of state Mt. Vernon (IL) in a close match. Two easy games for the McCracken before the King of the Bluegrass opening round versus LaRue County.

2. Marshall County
Season Record: 2-4

Things have not gone well for the Marshalls this week losing 3 of their last 4 games including an important game against McCracken County. Harmon continues to impress, but there has not been as much support as expected. Stokes has been the only other offensive threat for Marshall County. If they canít get more players involved in the offense, then this season wonít go as planned. Lots of out of state opponents coming up including the City of Palms tournament.

3. Murray
Season Record: 4-1

The Tigers continued to prove they belong near the top of the region 1 ranking with wins over Graves County 57-37, and Calloway County 63-47. They did lose their first game of the season against Christian Brothers (TN) by 5 points. Big game against Marshall County on Tuesday.

4. Calloway County
Season Record: 3-2

The Lakers had a confusing week. They lost a very close game against McCracken County 65-60, but then were blown out by crosstown rival Murray 63-37. They also lost big to Carerville (IL) by 30 points. Graves County, University Heights, and Paducah Tilghman are up this week.

5. Carlisle County
Season Record: 3-3

The Comets dropped two of three this sweek, the first, a blowout to Marshall County, and the second, a 11 point loss to Lyon County. They were able to easily defeat Hickman County 66-53. Livingston Central, Fulton City, and Mayfield on schedule this week.

6. Paducah Tilghman
Season Record: 3-2

The Blue Tornado rebounded nicely from opening the season with two losses. They easily defeated St. Mary and Mayfield. Graves County gave them a very close game, but they were able to win by a single point. They will travel to Henderson County, before playing in the Paducah Tilghman Christmas Tournament.

7. St. Mary
Season Record: 5-1

The Vikings couldnít keep their undefeated season, but they did win 2 of 3 this week. The Viking defeated Ballard Memorial and Livingston Central, but couldnít figure out Paducah Tilghman, showing they still have some work to do to keep a place in the top 5 region 1 rankings. Mayfield and Graves County are up next.

8. Graves County
Season Record:1-4

The Eagles suffered two losses to region 1 teams ranked ahead of them. The first to Murray was a game the Eagles really didnít compete well in, however they lost by 1 point to Paducah Tilghman 53-52. Calloway County, Ballard Memorial, and St. Mary this week.

9. Mayfield
Season Record:0-1
