McCracken County shows they are the best in the region after defeating number 2. They play number 3 this coming week. Paducah Tilghman has the chance to make some big noise this week after beating Murray. Mayfield is looking strong as they move up the rankings. Here is week 6 review:
1. McCracken County – BGP #9
Season Record: 14-4
McCracken continues to prove they are the top team in Region 1 after defeating Marshall County for a second time this season. It was still a close game and they needed Jackson Sivills 20 points and Noah Dumas 15 to pull it out. Christian County and Paducah Tilghman will try and knock of the top team this week.
2. Marshall County
Season Record: 7-9
Marshall had the lone game against McCracken County but just couldn’t pull it out. Zion Harmon hit 25 points, but only shot 29% from the field. A trend that has really hurt the Marshalls this season. Jonathan Stokes had 14 and Tyler Powell 11, both shot 50+% from the field, but put together, didn’t get shoot as much as Harmon. Only four players from Marshall scored in the game. They need more balance to compete within the BGP Top 20.
3. Paducah Tilghman
Season Record: 11-5
The Blue Tornado got a huge win hosting Murray. Michael Laster led Tilghman with 17 points and Eli Brown added 14 points. They are in the middle of the playing the top 3 teams in the region. One down, Two to go. Marshall County is first, and then McCracken County on the 17th. If they win those two games, they could break back into the top 20 and maybe even gain the number spot in the region.
Season Record: 11-3
The Tigers couldn’t keep their winning streak going as a visit to Paducah Tilghman snapped it to a tune of 55-51. Grant Whitaker was the only player to score in double figures with 16. Fulton City should be an easy win this week.
5. Calloway County
Season Record: 12-6
The Lakers defeated Carlisle County, Webster County, and Trigg County. The win gave Webster County their first loss to a Kentucky team this season.
