    Trinity 50 Scott County 40 (KHSAA Boys Sweet Sixteen® Finals)

    Final congrats to Trinity on the state title. Tough loss for the 2nd straight year for Scott Co. These kids had great careers just could not get that last game. This is Scott County's 3rd loss in the state championship in the last 6 years.

    Great fourth quarter for Trinity.

    Congrats to the Rocks! Heck of a ball team.

    Coach Billy Hicks maybe 14-0 in the first round of the state tournament but his finals record is not so good. I know that is 0-3 in the last 6 years. I'd say a lot of programs would like to have those opportunities but that's not very good.

    Really happy for Trinity, congrats to the Rocks on finishing this off!

    Also, another great season and post-season run for the Cards.

    Congrats to Trinity! Based just off the results and not the eye test, I'm thinking that maybe Campbell County was the second-best team in the whole shebang.

    Coach Hicks and Scott Co. have now lost two titles to both Covington Catholic and Trinity.

    Anyone have an idea of when the last time (if ever) a team has lost in consecutive finals?

    Congratulations to the Rocks.

    Trinity owned the fourth quarter, outscoring Scott County 21-7. Both teams were jackin’ up three balls during a crucial stretch in the final frame. Trinity's were falling, Scott County's weren't. There was your separation.

    In past 22 years Scott Co. is 2-5 in State Championship games. That is pretty impressive to have played in 7 title games in 22 years.

    I would like to give props to 16th Region official Nathan Sutton for getting 3 games in this years tournament including the state final. Congrats Nathan!

    Dunbar lost in the finals in 1993 and 1994.

    Scott County lacked an elite wing scorer I think and the last 2 years both teams had one with CJ Frederick and David Johnson.
