1st Region Week 7 Review
Week Seven Review:
McCracken County dominated the number Tilghman further separating themselves from the rest of the region. Murray gets back on track and looks to continue to improve as does Marshall County. The last few weeks of the season should be good as team ready themselves for district and region tournaments. Here is week 7 review:
1. McCracken County – BGP #8
Season Record: 16-4
McCracken crushed Christian County 65-32 and then turned around and smacked Paducah Tilghman 58-39. The Mustangs have now won 9 straight games and seem to be getting stronger each week. In January, McCracken has won all but one of its games (Marshall Co) in blowout fashion. The only team that looks like it may be able to stop the Mustangs is Marshall County, and that is only if they get their act together.
2. Marshall County
Season Record: 10-9
Marshall had their first undefeated week of the season going 3-0 and finally get back above .500. They defeated Graves County and Fulton City in blowouts, and defeated Prodigy Prep (FL) 79-67. This was a team they lost to earlier this year at Hoopfest. They play a tough game against Calloway County this week.
Season Record: 15-3
The Tigers didn’t miss a beat after having their 8 game winning streak snapped a couple weeks ago. They defeated St. Mary and Mayfield this week to extend a new winning streak to 3 games. They also won the 1st Region All A Classic and will advance to play at the state tournament classic at EKU this week.
