Week Three Review:

Webster County is the only undefeated team left in Region 2 since Madisonville suffered its first loss. Livingston Central and Hopkins County Central continue to remain winless, while Lyon County, Caldwell County, and Crittenden all had big weeks. Lots of teams playing in Holiday tournaments after Christmas. Here are the week 3 rankings:

1. Madisonville North Hopkins – BGP #6
Season record: 7-1

The Maroons continue to prove they are one of the best teams in Kentucky, even in losing their first game of the year at the King of the Bluegrass. Madisonville took a 71-70 loss to BGP#4 Collins in overtime in one of the best games of the tournament. The Maroons had a 12 point lead at the half, but could hold off the Titans. Both Casey and White had Double/Doubles for the game. White had 24/10 and Casey has 21/11. They will play McCracken County for the 5th place game. They defeated the Mustangs earlier this year by 5.

2. Webster County
Season Record: 9-0

Webster County remains the only undefeated team in Region 2 after winning games against Davies County, Hopkinsville, Nelson County, and Livingston Central. They will play in the Martin Classic next week down in Panama City Beach, Florida. Their first matchup will be against Shelbyville Central (TN). The Trojans are being led this season by Tyler Camplin (18 ppg) and Destin Allen (14.3 ppg).

3. Lyon County
Season Record: 6-2

The Lyons are coming on strong and continue to move up in the rankings. They picked up two more wins this week against Trigg County and Union County. Travis Perry is becoming a scoring monster for the Lyons. He had 29 in the win against Union, and backed that up with 31 against Trigg. He is averaging 21.4 ppg so far this year. Ballard Memorial and Campbellsville are next, both are very winnable games.

4. Christian County
Season Record: 3-5

Christian County took two losses this week, one to Owensboro 59-56, and the other to Bowling Green 66-51. The Colonels have played a pretty tough schedule so far this season and hope to get some relief that the Ashland Invitational next week, but don’t count on it. Butler is the first game out of the gate, and should matchup well.

5. Henderson County
Season Record: 4-4

Henderson were able to defeat Grayson County this week, however the Colonels took losses to both Paducah Tilghman and North Bullitt. Their next three games are winnable games, but Todd County Central and especially undefeated Ohio County will be close.

6. Union County
Season Record: 4-3

Union took a step back this week losing two close region 2 games. In the first, the Braves lost to Lyon County 74-70 despite 29 points from Gaither. In the second loss, Caldwell County defeated Union 76-68. While the Braves will have a rematch with Lyon later in the year, they won’t see Caldwell again until the region tournament.

7. Hopkinsville
Season Record: 4-5

Hopkinsville won their game against Nelson County, 53-48, however they dropped their next two games to Webster County 61-54 and to Daviess County 63-53. Great Crossing is next and then another holiday tournament at Logan County

8. University Heights
Season Record:3-6

The Blazers are another region 2 team that won 1 and loss 2. They were able to defeat Cairo (IL), but loss to region 1 teams Calloway County and Paducah Tilghman. Somerset is next up for UHA in a rebuilding season.

9. Crittenden County
Season Record: 6-3

Crittenden was one of the few region 2 teams that had a good week. The Rockets won all 4 games they played this week against Hardin County (IL), Christian Fellowship, Livingston Central, and Trinity (Whitesville). While these aren’t the strongest opponents, they played well. They will try to continue their win streak next week at the Stewart County Christmas Classic.

10. Caldwell County
Season Record: 4-5

What a week for the Tigers! After starting the year off 0-5, something clicked and Caldwell now has a 4 game winning streak. They defeated Todd County Central, Dawson Springs, and Russellville in their first three games of the week. Then Caldwell pulled an upset against Union County, defeating them 76-68 at Union. They do not play again until after the new year, so hopefully this time away will not hurt their sudden success.

11. Trigg County
Season Record: 3-6

Tough week for the Wildcats as they dropped all three games this week and are currently in a 4 game skid. They lost to Lyon County, Hancock County, and St. Mary. They will attempt to get back on track when they play in the Lions Club Classic next week in Martin, TN.

12. Dawson Springs
Season Record: 3-6

The Panthers couldn’t continue the success from last week and lost to all three opponents this week. McLean County, Ballard Memorial, and Caldwell County all defeated Dawson Springs. Their next game will be Dec 30 against Apollo.

13. Fort Campbell
Season Record: 5-3

Fort Campbell suffered its first losing week of the season dropping both games against University Heights and Mayfield. They will play in the Zaxby’s Holiday Tournament next week.

14. Hopkins County Central
Season Record: 0-10

The Storm’s dreadful beginning to the season continue as they lost all four games at the Twin Lakes Classic. They are currently on a 12 game losing streak going back to last year. They play Livingston Central next week in hopes to break out of the funk.

15. Livingston Central
Season Record: 0-9

The Cardinals also continue their terrible start to this season losing 3 more games and still winless. They play four games this week, and if the continue the way they’ve played, that Dec 30 game will break one of the 2 winless teams in region two streak.

Player of the Week

Travis Perry, Lyon County
Perry scored 29 points in a big win over Union County, then he backed that up with a 31 point effort against Trigg County.
