1.Owensboro Red Devils (15-5) SAME On Tuesday Owensboro grinded out a 70-63 win over Madisonville. The Devils put 5 players in double figure, led by Lance Lewis's 13. Gardener, Hogg and Tinsley chipped in 11 and Deonte Douglas added 10. On Friday, OHS came up short vs #1 in Indiana class 3A Evansville Bosse. The Bulldogs poured it in from long range and the Devils just could not keep pace. The Devils get back home this Tuesday vs Breck. On Friday, they have a 9th district showdown at Apollo.

2.Daviess County Panthers (14-8) SAME The Panthers split a pair of games this past week. They opened with an impressive 76-55 win over Henderson. The Colonels could not keep pace with the uptempo style of the Panthers. Blake Bosewell led all scorers with 23. Seth Fenwick continued his breakout campaign with 19. On Saturday, the Panthers fell to Central Hardin 66-63. They trailed most of the game but made a nice run to cut the Bruin lead to 3, before coming up short. They travel to Muhlenberg County tomorrow for a tough test before returning home this weekend for more regional action against Catholic Friday and Meade County on Saturday.

3.Owensboro Catholic Aces (13-7) - SAME The Aces fell in the first round of the All-A state tournament this week. Knott Central held Catholic to only 33 points in the loss. Ty Vincent rolled his ankle in the game and will miss some time. The Aces will miss his spark off the bench. The Aces have 3 tough road games this week, starting tomorrow at Madisonville. Friday they travel to Daviess County in a big game for 9th district seeding. Saturday, they are at Breck County.

4.Apollo Eagles (8-10) UP 2 The Eagles continue to trend upward this week, as they knocked off Muhlenberg County in overtime, 62-60. Zach Greer hit a put back at the buzzer to lift Apollo to the win.

They went 2-0 last week, starting with a 49-39 win over Grayson County. Kobe Poole scored 20. Friday, they got a huge district win down in Meade County, 67-61. Kobe Poole had 25, while Tanner Whitworth had 15. Whitworth has played limited minutes this season, but if they can get him going, lookout.

6.Muhlenberg County Mustangs (9-11) DOWN 1 The Mustangs went 0-2 this week, but they were in prime position to get 2 big wins. On Tuesday, they lost to Bowling Green 55-50. The Stangs led the Purples 50-49 with under 2 minutes but could not hang on. On the road against Apollo on Friday, Muhlenberg led late but missed key free throws that allowed Apollo to steal one. Keep in mind this is a very young team, and they continue to improve as the season rolls along. For my money, no coach in the region has done more than Kyle Eades. The Mustangs will be a tough out come tournament time. They will look to make a statement at home on Tuesday, hosting Daviess County. On Friday they travel to Mclean County.

7.Meade County Greenwave (9-6) DOWN 3 The Waves drop 3 spots this week, but take that with a grain of salt. You could throw a blanket over the teams in the middle of this poll. With 3 straight, 3rd region championship game appearances under their belt, they expect to figure into things down the stretch. The dropped games to Louisville Valley Tuesday & Breck County on Friday. As long as they arent upset in another district contest they will still hold the #1 seed. Aiden Mattews stayed the constant this week, scoring 33 against Valley and 22 against Breck. They host North Hardin Tuesday & Cloverport on Friday. On Saturday, they travel to Daviess County for a big one.

9.Hancock County Hornets (11-9) UP 2 The Hornets have won 2 straight. On Tuesday they knocked of Cloverport. Friday they got a nice 71-61 win on the road at Mclean County. They play South Spencer Indiana tonight before hosting the Hancock County classic this weekend.

10.Whitesville Trinity Raiders (12-11) - DOWN 1 - Trinity split a pair of games this past week, opening with a tough 70-67 loss at Mclean County. They did bounce back however with a big district win in Grayson County, 51-47. While seeding isnt all that important in the very even 12th district, as of right now the Raiders control their own destiny for the #1 seed. They have two big district road games this week at Edmonson and Butler Co.

11.Butler County Bears (8-9) SAME The Bears knocked off Caverna this week 93-80. Will Moore scored 35 and joined the 1000 point club. Moore continues to be one of the best scorers in the region.

15.Cloverport Aces (2-17) SAME The Aces dropped a pair of games this week to Bethlehem and Hancock County. They are back in action on Friday at Meade County before hosting Dawson Springs on Saturday.

Breck County - games at Apollo & OHS, plus a home games against Ohio County and Catholic this weekend. If they can go 3-1, heads will turn.
TUE - Daviess County at Muhlenberg - should be a great game. Can Muhlenberg finish off a big win they missed last week? Catholic at Madisonville - tough road test for the Aces, can they start trending things in the right direction this week?
FRI - 9th District Games - Can Apollo close the gap with Owensboro & can DC hold off Catholic to keep the tie with Owensboro for the 1 seed?
SAT - Meade Co @ Daviess Co - measuring stick game for the Waves. A win on the road would show that they can compete with anyone in the region.
