Biggest game this past week in region 2 was between Hopkinsville and Christian County. This was the first year in quite some time that this game wasn’t for who would be the number one seed in District 8 and a favorite to win region 2. This year, the second seed is up for grabs and neither are favored to go to Rupp Arena. Madisonville and UHA both still look to be on a collision for the Region 2 title Here are this week’s rankings:

1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse
BGP#5
2018-19 record: 22-4
Week’s Record: 1-1
All “A” Classic Champions

University Heights played an easy game against Fort Campbell winning almost 50 points. They then travelled to Eads, TN where they played one of the best teams in Tennessee, Briarcrest Christian. They didn’t play their best game of the year and they were unable to overcome some sloppy play and the Blazers lost 76-65. They play 3 of their last 4 games at home including rivals Christian County and Hopkinsville.

2. Madisonville North Hopkins – Coach Matt Beshear
2018-19 record: 19-5
Week’s Record: 4-0

The Maroons extend their winning streak to twelve games. They suffered through some very close games throughout the week. It started with a 54 point win against Dawson Springs before defeating Owensboro Catholic in a nail biter 58-57. The streak continued at Caldwell County as Madisonville won 80-70. They finished off in Bowling Green against Bardstown, coming away victorious 66-56. Evansville Day (IN) and Webster County this week.

3. Hopkinsville – Coach Larry Miller
2018-19 record: 14-9
Week’s Record: 1-0

The Tigers hosted crosstown rival Christian County in their only game of the week. James Nicholas scored 11 and Don Victor with Reece Jesse each scored 10 as Hopkinsville defeated the Colonels 53-51. Next up, the Tigers will travel across town to play University Heights Academy who they lost to by 6 early in December. It will be a tough match up for Hopkinsville.


4. Christian County – Coach Kerry Stovall
2018-19 record: 12-13
Week’s Record: 0-1

The Colonels lost to Hopkinsville in a heartbreaker 53-51. They have made some big improvements throughout the season, even if their record doesn’t show it. Coach Stovall has seen his team improve each week and will put up a big fight in the District tournament in the coming weeks. Until then they play Fort Campbell, UHA, Union, and Pulaski county.
