While things at the top of Region 2 haven’t changed a whole lot, there was quite a bit of activity in the middle and lower rankings of the region. Dawson Springs pulled off the biggest upset this week, and Caldwell County looks to have righted the ship. The number two and three teams will have a shot at staking their claim at the top position as they play UHA this week.
1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse
2018-19 record: 4-0
Week’s Record: 1-0
The Blazers didn’t have much competition this week. They defeated Todd County Central 110 – 66. Drew McGowan led UHA with 24 points and Tandy added 23 with Crump pouring in 20. The next week should be very interesting for the Blazers. They will play the #2 and #3 teams in the region. They will go to Hopkinsville while having Madisonville at home.

2. Madisonville North Hopkins – Coach Matt Beshear
2018-19 record: 3-1
Week’s Record: 1-0
Madisonville only played one game this week as well. They went to Dawson Springs and won by 40. They only have one game upcoming this week, but its against UHA and the battle for the top spot in the region. We will get a good sense of just how good this Marroons team is.

3. Hopkinsville – Coach Larry Miller
2018-19 record: 4-1
Week’s Record: 2-0
Hopkinsville looks like things are starting to come together, although they still have lots of question marks. This week they defeated rival Christian County 79-64 in a convincing win. They also defeated Bardstown in the Tip-off Classic. One of the big question marks will be what the Tigers will do now that Alijah Watts has left the team. He was one of their best scoring weapons. Their biggest test of the year will be against the other rival, University Heights. They could make a big statement on Dec 11.

4. Christian County – Coach Kerry Stovall
2018-19 record: 1-2
Week’s Record: 1-1
The Colonels did not look like the team we have seen in past year thru their first two games. The talent level isn’t quite where it used to be. They took a difficult loss to Hopkinsville in a year with both teams are down. They turned around however and defeated Doss 59-56. Christian County is hoping this will boost them as they play at Henderson County and at a very good Madison Central team.

5. Webster County – Coach Jon Newton
2018-19 record: 4-1
Week’s Record: 2-1
The Trojans were one of the more active teams in Region 2 this week with 3 games. They won 2 games. Both were handy wins over Apollo and Fort Campbell. In between those two wins, Webster Co fell to Caldwell County. Douglas Malachi has been leading the charge averaging 20 ppg.

6. Hopkins County Central – Coach Lee James
2018-19 record: 2-1
Week’s Record: 1-0
Hopkins County won their only game this week against Calloway County from Region 1. Tyler Mann led storm with 24 points. They will play Madisonville and Hopkinsville this week. Both will be very tough games.

7. Henderson County – Coach Tyler Smithhart
2018-19 record: 4-0
Week’s Record: 2-0
Henderson County continues to show promise by winning two more games this week and remaining undefeated on the year, only one other team in the region remains undefeated. The Colonels won both their games against Evansville teams. Corey Stewart led Henderson in both games, 24 and 12 respectively.

8. Livingston Central – Coach Chris Green
2018-19 record: 4-3
Week’s Record: 2-1
The Cardinals have already played seven games this season. This week they defeated Trigg County and St. Mary, while taking a loss to Lyon County. Three more games on schedule for this week in Carlisle County, Webster County, and Crittenden County

9. Union County – Coach Shane Smith
2018-19 record: 1-2
Week’s Record: 1-2
Union didn’t play this week. They will play Lyon County, Trinity (Whitesville) and Dawson Springs this week.

10. Caldwell County – Coach Daniel Kukahiko
2018-19 record: 3-2
Week’s Record: 3-0
The Tigers started this season with two losses. It didn’t look like Caldwell was the team many thought they would be. But things changed this week as they won all three of their games. They were in control against Crittenden County and Webster County, and then squeaked out an overtime win against Muhlenberg County. They have a tough matchup versus Paducah Tilghman this week.

11. Trigg County – Coach Payton Croft
2018-19 record: 3-2
Week’s Record: 2-1
Trigg County had some very entertaining games this week as they defeated Crittenden County and Fort Campbell both by 12 points. They ended up on the losing side of a very close game versus Livingston Central 65-67.

12. Lyon County – Coach Jeff Embrey
2018-19 record: 3-3
Week’s Record: 2-1
After losing 2 games and only winning one last week, the Lyons turned things around to do the opposite this week. They defeated Livingston Central and Crittenden while falling to Dawson Springs, which was a slight shocker after the way they have been playing.

13. Fort Campbell – Coach Robbie Townsend
2018-19 record: 1-3
Week’s Record: 0-2
The Falcons took two losses this week against Trigg County and Webster County

14. Crittenden County – Coach Denis Hodge
2018-19 record: 0-4
Week’s Record: 0-4
The Rockets lost another two games. This time to Caldwell County and Lyon County. They could get their first win of the year as they face Christian Fellowship.

15. Dawson Springs – Coach Chad Burgett
2018-19 record: 3-2
Week’s Record: 2-1
The Panthers got a spanking at home versus Madisonville, but they turned that around and pulled off the biggest upset of the week in Region 2 by defeating Lyon County 84-83. They were led by Skyler Clark with 28 and Landon Pace with 27. They will try and keep things going against Livingston Central and Ft Campbell this week.

Player of the Week
Skyler Clark, Dawson Springs.
Clark was a huge part of this week’s biggest upset, hitting 5 three pointers on the way to scoring 28 points in the win. .
