47th District Tournament Preview (12th Region)

By SHS Future - 47th District Tournament at Pulaski County Pulaski County Maroons (17-11) (5-1) - Pulaski County is on a roll when it comes to 47th District Tournaments. They have won the last five district titles and have won eight of the last nine 47th District Tournaments since the new alignment in 2006. They are once again poised to win another title sitting as the #1 seed in this year’s 47th District Tournament which is being played on their home court.

By SHS Future - 46th District Tournament at West Jessamine West Jessamine Colts (18-9) (5-1) – West Jessamine is the two time defending 46th District Tournament champions and are sitting as the #1 seed in this years’ tournament. They will face the #4 seed Burgin Bulldogs on Tuesday night. Look for this to be a win for the Colts by a comfortable margin as they should advance to the championship game Friday night.

45th District Tournament Preview (12th Region)

By SHS Future - 45th District Tournament at Garrard County Lincoln County Patriots (21-5) (5-1) – Lincoln County won the coin flip and received the #1 seed in the 45th District tournament. They are the defending 45th District Tournament champions and play the winner of #4 seed Garrard County and #5 seed Kentucky School for the Deaf. The Patriots did not play KSD in the regular season and more than likely will be playing Garrard County which they defeated twice by 33 points each time. Lincoln County should have no problem getting to the finals of the 45th District and moving on to the 12th Region... Read More →

Powell County is riding a 3 game losing streak going into the district tournament but has defeated Owsley County, the team they will meet in the first round of the district tournament, twice this season.

2015 54th District Tournament Preview

By All State Baseball - Site: Perry County Central High School Favorite: Perry County Central (19-10): Although Hazard is the defending district champions and own a victory over favorite Perry County Central this season, Perry County Central will be the favorite as they have torn through everyone in the district including a thrashing over Hazard. Perry County Central comes into the district tournament at 4-1. Close Behind: Buckhorn (17-8): Arguably one of the best seasons in school history. The Wildcats come into the district tournament at 5-2 and own wins over Hazard and Leslie County. Buckhorn played... Read More →

24th District Tournament Preview (6th Region)

By GoHardITP - 24th at Mercy * Wednesday – Whitefield Academy (4) vs. Bullitt East (1), 6:00 Tyler Sharpe and the Bullitt East team has already defeated Whitefield once this season in early January by 33 points. There is not any way that Whitefield can close that gap, and BE has been playing much better of late. BE wins by 20 or more in this one. * Wednesday - Jeffersontown (3) vs. Fern Creek (2), 7:30 This is going to be a tough battle that likely goes down to the end. Senior Brandon Johnson for JTown will not go down in his last game of a great career without a fight. If he goes off for one... Read More →

22nd District Tournament Preview (6th Region)

By GoHardITP - 22nd at Western * Monday – Iroquois (5) vs. Butler (4), 6:30 Butler has struggled this season with 5 wins and 18 losses. They have lost 6 in a row to end the season, but their last win was against Iroquois which leaves them hope in this game. In fact, Iroquois has only won 6 games and lost 21 with a 9 game losing streak. Both teams are incredibly young and are a mirror image of each other. I predict the team that has been able to continue believing in their coaching staff during the string of losses will win this one. On that note I am going to predict Iroquois given that Coach...

21st District Tournament Preview (6th Region)

By GoHardITP - 21st at Pleasure Ridge Park * Monday – Beth Haven (5) vs. Valley (4), 7:30 Just looking at records one could assume that Beth Haven with 19 wins on the season should win this game against a 5 win Valley to advance to play PRP in the semi-finals. But that is discounting the fact that Valley did not back away from playing a much tougher schedule despite being very young with little returning talent. In fact, one of the Valley wins was a victory over Beth Haven early in the season by a wide margin. This is why I ignore the win/loss record for the most part and focus on who teams have...

Inside The 11th Region (2/22/15)

By JokersWild24 - Alright folks, we've been snowed out for most of the week, so there hasn't been tons of change. With that in mind, I thought it'd be a good time to go ahead and give you a few links to get your palette ready for tournament tipoff. The updates include a preview of each district, my regular season All 11th Region squads, and a statistical rundown on the top performers in the 11th. The format for this week will be a little different, but if you click the links below, you'll find that there's even more information than usual. That should be plenty to keep us busy and full of discussion. ... Read More →

44th District Tournament Preview (11th Region)

By JokersWild24 - Things get underway in the 44th on Tuesday night, as EKU's McBeyer Arena will host the action. The 44th draws, and the two teams who'd likely be considered the top 2 wound up drawing one another in Madison Central and Madison Southern. In the other bracket, Model and Berea will battle it out with a berth to the regional tournament on the line. Madison Central vs. Madison Southern: Read More →

43rd District Tournament Preview (11th Region)

By JokersWild24 - The toughest district in the State should have the most interesting regional tournament. Tates Creek hosts this year, and will face #4 Lafayette, who lost the third place tiebreaker to Dunbar, in the 4/5 game. The winner of that one goes on to play #1 Lexington Christian Academy. In the bottom bracket, a tantalizing matchup between #2 Lexington Catholic and #3 Dunbar will send one of the State's top 20 teams packing right away. One big question given all the cancellations is whether or not the privates will have a bit of a built in advantage given that they have presumably been able... Read More →
