    This list will definitely shrink this week.

    Oldham Co, Warren Central, and John Hardin all play in the Oldham Co tournament this week.
    Cov Cath, Cooper, and Trinity are all in the KOB.

    Agreed... these holiday tourneys typically see many of these undefeated team begin to drop like flies.

    Last season by Dec. 29 there were only 2 remaining, when on Dec. 23 when I began this list last season there were 8.

    I'm a few days ahead of that this season, so whereas we have 13 presently on the list, I'm expecting to see this quickly drop in numbers in the coming days.

    Here's every Ky State Champ since 1981 when the KOB Tourney began, so the next question would be which of these teams only lost 1 game in the season that they won the Sweet 16, and which of those teams actually played in the KOB, and which of those team's only loss came in the KOB.

    I don't know where there might be a list of win/loss records for every state champ, but that sounds like the place to begin to help narrow down your question by first finding which ones had only lost 1 game in their State Title season, and then proceed to determine if it came at the hands of a KOB Tourney loss.

    1982 Laurel County
    1983 Henry Clay

    It’s not what you asked, but just last season Bowling Green finished with only two losses, both of which came in the KOB. The semifinals and third place game.

    I imagine the LIT knocked out plenty as well, especially when it wasn’t just a Louisville tourney. If a team played in both the KOB and LIT, chances are they didn’t win both.

    I just checked on the KOB website comparing each year's winner to the Sweet 16, and it's never happened where a team has won both in the same season.

    If you mean simply has a team ever won both, but not necessarily in the same season, I will recheck now to see as I believe that it's happened with numerous teams over the course of the history of the tourney.

    What a great question! In the same season it has happened 16 times.

    I'm misunderstanding what you are saying here?

    I read the Prof's question to be, "winning both in the same season."

    Your much more detailed answer is more correct, as it meets all criteria. Excellent research, by the way. Thank you.

    Thanks... I thought that he might've been asking about winning both tourneys in the same season, and if that's what he was asking I didn't come up with any teams that had done that.

    Could have gone either way. I blame a certain HS English department for our comprehension difficulties.
