No big changes in this week’s rankings. Webster Count had a nice win over Caldwell County, but can’t seem to get enough consistency to move up in the rankings. UHA suffered a loss to a very good Mayfield team, and Madisonville keeps on trucking, while Hopkinsville tries to get back on track. Here is week 7 rankings:

1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse
2018-19 record: 15-3
Week’s Record: 1-1

University Heights put a hurting on their old rivals Christian County to the tune of 85-53. Tandy scored 31 points and Hollowell add 21. The Blazers were then tripped up by Mayfield 87-78, even with Tandy scoring 44. This could be a preview of the All A State Championship later on. For now the 2nd Region All A Classic starts this week. UHA should have no problem advancing to the All A State Tournament

2. Madisonville North Hopkins – Coach Matt Beshear
2018-19 record: 12-5
Week’s Record: 2-0

Cade Cunningham scored 21 points and Ksuan Casey added 19 points and 10 rebounds as 5 Maroons scored in double digits in the victory against Caldwell County 85-68. They went on to defeat Henderson County just as soundly 82-67. Casey led the team with 23 and Gilber had 15 as once again 5 different players scored at least 11 points. Webster County and Paducah Tilghman are next. The Tilghman game is at home, but should be a pretty good game.

3. Hopkinsville – Coach Larry Miller
2018-19 record: 11-8
Week’s Record: 3-0

The Tigers stopped their five game losing streak by defeating Warren Central 51-49 in a close one. Jacarius Burks was the only player to score in double digits with 11. Hopkinsville then finally found some offense as they defeated Fort Campbell 66-23 (although that is the lowest score they have had since before the Haworth era), and Doss 77-63. The Tigers will play Northeast, TN and Madison Central on Saturday.

4. Caldwell County – Coach Daniel Kukahiko
2018-19 record: 10-6
Week’s Record: 0-2

The Tigers didn’t have a good week in losing to Madisonville big and Webster County. They have now lost 3 of 4 heading into a week where they need to upright the ship. The loss to MNH was expected, but Caldwell really needed to win the game against Webster County to prove their ranking. However, the teams below them haven’t proven they can win consistently either, it’s the only reason they are not dropping.

5. Christian County – Coach Kerry Stovall
2018-19 record: 9-9
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Colonels took a beatdown to city rivals University Heights 85-53. They recovered nicely and delivered their own victory 75-57 over Jeffersontown. CCHS will host Bowling Green before heading to Scott County for the Toyota Classic where they will play Trinity Catholic from Florida in the opener.

6. Henderson County – Coach Tyler Smithhart
2018-19 record: 10-7
Week’s Record: 1-1

Henderson County played two games this week. In the first game, the Colonels defeated Henderson County 74-65. This was an important win for HC as it keeps them ahead of Webster in the region rankings. In the second game they played Madisonville North Hopkins, who reminded the Colonels, they have a lot of work to do in order to compete with the top tier teams as HC took a 82-67 loss.

7. Lyon County – Coach Jeff Embrey
2018-19 record: 11-6
Week’s Record: 1-0

The Lyons won the only game they played this week. Travis Perry scored 23 points leading them to a 65-44 victory over Fort Campbell. Jackson Shoulders and Gabe Board added 15 in the win. They will play Crittenden County and McLean County next.

8. Union County – Coach Shane Smith
2018-19 record: 7-6
Week’s Record: 0-0

Union stayed idle this week as they did not play any games. They will play Hardin County, IL, Christian Fellowship, and Evansville Day, IN this week.

9. Webster County – Coach Jon Newton
2018-19 record: 12-6
Week’s Record: 2-1

Busy week for the Trojans as they defeated Caldwell County 71-64 and then Allen County-Scottsville 66-50. Both were impressive wins for Webster. They couldn’t quite get past Glasgow losing 54-48. They have two very tough games this week as they host Madisonville North Hopkins and play Knox Central in Owensboro.

10. Hopkins County Central – Coach Lee James
2018-19 record: 5-9
Week’s Record: 0-1

Hopkins County lost another game, that makes 4 of their last 5 and 8 of 11. They need to find something to get back on track. They play Muhlenberg County, Trigg County, Caldwell County, and Calloway County this week. This week could make or break their season. They can get back to .500, or solidify a losing record for the season.

11. Livingston Central – Coach Chris Green
2018-19 record: 9-8
Week’s Record: 1-0

The Cardinals were able to defeat Carlisle County 40-36 in a low scoring affair. They will play in the 2nd Region All “A” Classic starting this week.

12. Trigg County – Coach Payton Croft
2018-19 record: 6-11
Week’s Record: 0-1

Trigg County’s losing streak was extended to 6 and 9 of 11 as they lost 64-60 in a close game with Ohio County. Kendric Adams led the Wildcats with 27. They play Hopkins County Central and Community Christian this week.

13. Fort Campbell – Coach Robbie Townsend
2018-19 record: 5-8
Week’s Record: 1-2

The Falcons got a win at Dawson Spring 73-67 in a good game. However 3 days later they only scored 23 points in a loss to Hopkinsville. Things got a little better, but still lost to Lyon County 65-44. They play McCracken County before starting the All A Classic.

14. Dawson Springs – Coach Chad Burgett
2018-19 record: 5-10
Week’s Record: 0-1

The Panthers only played one game this week, but it extended their losing streak to 5 games and now they have lost 8 of 9. They rematch Fort Campbell this week to start the All A Classic

15. Crittenden County – Coach Denis Hodge
2018-19 record: 5-10
Week’s Record: 0-0

The Rockets did not play this week as they prepare for the All A Classic starting Tuesday.
