No big changes in this week’s rankings. Caldwell fell behind Christian County and there was some movement at the bottom of the rankings. Tournaments and weather affected play this week as the season begins to wind down. Here is week 7 rankings:

1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse
2018-19 record: 16-3
Week’s Record: 2-0

University Heights rebounded from their lost to Mayfield last week by easily winning the Region 2 All A Classic. They defeated Lyon County 86-63 and Livingston Central 78-56. Tandy led UHA in both game with 30 and 31 respectively. Next up is the All A State tournament where the Blazers have a real chance of winning, but will have plenty of good teams they may have to face (Newport, Danville, LCA, Mayfield, Walton-Verona). They will open against the Bishop Brossart/Paris winner.

2. Madisonville North Hopkins – Coach Matt Beshear
2018-19 record: 13-5
Week’s Record: 1-0

The Maroons extend their winning streak to six games as they defeated Paducah Tilghman 64-61 at home. They will face Owensboro and county rival Hopkins County Central this week. Depending on which Owensboro team shows up, it could be a tough matchup, and anytime rivals play each other anything can happen.

3. Hopkinsville – Coach Larry Miller
2018-19 record: 12-8
Week’s Record: 1-0

The Tigers defeated Northeast High out of Clarksville, TN 54-49. They had a game against Madison Central cancelled due to the weekend weather. That would have been a good measuring stick to how much the Tigers have improved. Instead that will come this week when they travel to Graves County and then host DuPont Manual.

4. Christian County – Coach Kerry Stovall
2018-19 record: 11-11
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Colonels had one of their busiest weeks of the season in playing four games, 3 of them at Scott County’s Toyota Classic. While hosting Bowling Green, the Colonels found themselves in a very physical game which was close through 2 quarters, but the Purples pulled away and won 72-55. In the Toyota Classic, Christian County lost their opener by one 57-56, then went on to defeat Christian Academy from Myrtle Beach and Wayne County. They will play games against Castle, IN and Dupont Manual this week.

5. Caldwell County – Coach Daniel Kukahiko
2018-19 record: 11-7
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Tigers trying to get back on track after losing 3 of 4 started well as they defeated Calloway County 71-63. Derrin Boyd scored 27 points in the win. Caldwell then travelled to Hopkins County Central where they should have had a pretty easy win, but instead they stumbled and ended up losing 67-66. Now they will take on Trigg Co. and Lyon Co.

6. Henderson County – Coach Tyler Smithhart
2018-19 record: 10-8
Week’s Record: 0-1

Henderson County lost their only game to Castle, IN 84-56. They hope to rebound as the travel to Union County and Webster County while hosting Daviess County.

7. Lyon County – Coach Jeff Embrey
2018-19 record: 12-7
Week’s Record: 1-1

The Lyons won their first game in the 2nd Region All A Classic against Crittenden County 61-41. Gabe Board led the Lyons with 17, Jackson Shoulders added 15 in the win. Then game BGP #5 University Heights in the championship game. Lyons played well, but just couldn’t hang falling 86-63. They will try to get back on track by playing Livingston Central, Caldwell County, and Dawson Springs this week.

8. Union County – Coach Shane Smith
2018-19 record: 8-6
Week’s Record: 1-0

Union County only were able to play Hardin County, IL this week defeating them 74-45. The other games were affected because of weather. This means the Braves have only played 1 game since Jan 5. We will see if this affects how they play in the future against Henderson County and Crittenden County.

9. Webster County – Coach Jon Newton
2018-19 record: 12-8
Week’s Record: 2-1

Webster played in the Ky 2A Sectional and State Classics. They were defeated by Glasgow 54-48 and then Knox Central 65-59. They will only play Henderson County this week as they attempt to get back on track after losing 4 of 6.

10. Hopkins County Central – Coach Lee James
2018-19 record: 8-9
Week’s Record: 3-0

Hopkins County had their best week of the year winning all three games they played. Muhlenberg County, Trigg County, and Caldwell County all fell to the Storm. They will try to extend that winning streak this week against Dawson Springs and Madisonville.

11. Livingston Central – Coach Chris Green
2018-19 record: 10-8
