    BluegrassPreps.com 1st Region Boys Basketball Review Week 7
    Not a whole lot changed this past week as the weather did not cooperate and most teams only played 1 game. Things will be much of the same this week as even more snow fell in Western Kentucky. Hopefully the roads can get cleared and basketball will get underway again, especially the All “A” Classic where state contender Mayfield will open play!

    1. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas
    BGP #13
    2017-18 record:14-3
    Weeks record: 5-1-
    Last Week’s Rank: 1 --
    Paducah Tilghman dominated Marshall County 74-52 with balanced scoring. The Tornado had 4 players score in double figures lead by Jerome Reed with 18. Tilghman is scheduled to play in the Superman Classic this week.

    2. Mayfield – Coach Chris Guhy
    2017-18 record: 13-4
    Week’s Record: 3-0
    Last Week’s Rank: 2

    Mayfield was one of the few teams that got in 3 games this past week. They beat a very good John Hardin team 71-64. The Cardinals got a great game from Desean Jones who scored 26 points. The Guthries add 26 together. Statement game for Mayfield.
    They also defeated Ballard Memorial and South Fulton, TN in easy wins.
    The Cardinals will open play in the All “A” Classic which they will be heavily favored to win, however a big game with Paducah Tilghman looms next Tuesday.


    3. Graves County – Coach Joshua Frick
    2017-18 record: 12-5
    Week’s Record: 0-0

    Player of the Week
    Desean Jones, Mayfield – 26 points on 7-10 shooting from the field including 4 of 5 from 3. He also pulled down 6 rebounds in the big win against John Hardin.

    1st Region ALL “A” CLASSIC Tournament.

    Mayfield is the big, big favorite in this competition. In fact, Mayfield has to be one of the favorites to win the All “A” State Tournament. Anything but winning the whole things may feel like a let down. There are no Region 1 teams that should even give the Cardinals a close game. Here are the first round games:

    St. Mary vs Ballard Memorial
    Hickman County vs Community Christian
    Carlisle County vs Fulton County
