Due to the weather, there were not many games to really talk about in Region 2 this past week. Inclement weather wiped out all Friday and Saturday games, and the UHA/Christian County game was postponed until Jan 17 if the weather will hold in check. The two teams will pick up at halftime with UHA a 35-32 lead.

The Maroons won their only game this week, a blowout win at Caldwell County 83-57. Not much on the agenda till next week when they play Lyon County, Hopkins County Central, and Owensboro.

4. Hopkinsville – Coach Tim Haworth
2017-18 record: 6-10
Week’s Record: 0-1
Last Weeks Rank: 3

Hopkinsville lost a close game to Warren Central, again without all their weapons. Johnson was out with the flu. However the Tigers got seemingly good news this week that Shorty Cager will officially return to the team after his suspension was reduced. Talent wise this makes the Tigers the best team in Region 2, but can they actually prove that on the court.

Union lost at home to Livingston Central which would have allowed them to lose a spot in the rankings if LC didn’t then lose to Lyon County. They will play Hardin, IL, Christian Fellowship, and Evansville Day, IN this week.

The Cardinals got a big win at Union County 65-52. Cameron Dean threw down 31 points including 5 three pointers in the win. It was a big win for LC. Then they turn around 2 days later and lose to a 2 win Lyon County by double digits. They will have another chance to prove they are more the former team than the latter as they rematch Lyon County at the All “A” Classic.

ALL “A” CLASSIC Tournament Preview (at Crittenden County)

Lyon County vs Livingston Central 1/16
Livingston should be the easy favorite in this game, but after losing to Lyon County this past week, they may not get past the first round. It was probably a bad game for LC, but Lyon will come to play again so Cameron Dean and Seth Hosick should both come ready to play.

Caldwell County vs Crittenden County 1/16
Caldwell is the favorite in this game, however, Crittenden has been playing better basketball lately. Derrin Boyd (22 ppg) will lead the Tigers when they play in the first round.

BYE – University Heights
The Blazers are the huge favorite to win the Region 2 All “A” Classic tournament. In fact it would be one of the biggest upsets in the state if they do not reach the state tournament. UHA have the chance to win the whole thing if they play their best basketball.

SemiFinals – Friday, Jan 19
