14th Region Week 6 Review: All "A" Classic Preview, Records Broken.

By All State Baseball - With Christmas break already over with, it’s time to get back to the games that matter, district and region games. Although it’s early January these district and region games have a lot of meaning as for district seedings and possible region implications. With that said, let’s take a look back at week #6 in the 14th region. Breathitt County (6-5): The Bobcats put their #1 ranking on the line this week when they hosted the Commodores of Perry County Central. What a game it was as the Breathitt County Bobcats pulled out a thrilling 45-44 victory to remain unbeaten in region play at 5-0.... Read More →


12th Region Week 6 Review: Milestones and Rivalries

By TDC - Week 6 wrapped up the holiday break, some District action commenced this past week but most of the District rivalry games are still in front of us. There are some clear contenders (Wayne, Danville, Lincoln), some potential contenders with the talent to win the Region that have yet to play their best (Mercer, West Jessamine), and some rising young potential contenders that could really shake things up if they continue to improve (Pulaski, Somerset, Garrard). The next tier is for Boyle County alone, who doesn’t currently appear to be a serious contender but that could change with the return of... Read More →


10th Region Week 5 Review - Nobody Can Break Away From the Pack

By mcpapa - The 10th didn't exactly distinguish itself in the week 5 holiday tournaments - with one exception. Our "powerhouses" aren't so powerful at the moment - maybe a new calendar year will ring in better results. 1. Campbell County (9-3, 2-0 region, 0-0 district). The Camels went 2-1 in the Central Bank Classic at Lexington Christian, routing Oldham County and West Jessamine; while falling to the host school in a two-point nailbiter. Big man Reid Jolly is still averaging a double-double; while senior guard Drew Wilson actually gets to the line a bit more often and averages over 19PPG. ... Read More →


8th Region Week 5 Review: Collins Still #1 After Rough Week for Region teams

By ColonelMike - The last week of the calendar year is typically when teams head off to some out of town place for three days of tournament competition. It's a great environment, a tremendous opportunity to pick up a trophy or two, and a chance to build friendships and memories. But if winning proves elusive, then sometimes it's not so much fun. Last year, the 8th Region teams truly enjoyed the tournaments in the final two weeks of the season. Walton-Verona did extraordinarily well in the King of the Bluegrass....Oldham County won the Pegasus Sports Best in Hoops...ad infinitum. This year...well,... Read More →



6th Region Week 5 Review

By SportsLife - 1. Butler (12-3): The Bears continued to win in Week 5, notching three straight wins and claiming the Ashland Invitational Tournament (AIT) title. Butler pulled away to beat longtime rival DeSales 62-42 in the AIT title game. The Bears are slated to host the Colts for another matchup on Friday, Jan. 4. 2. Jeffersontown (10-4): The Chargers finished 2-1 in Week 5, claiming back-to-back wins in the Jean Schumm Operation Parent Classic at South Oldham High School, beating Holmes and Dixie Heights after falling to North Oldham. Jeffersontown is one of four 6th Region boys' basketball teams... Read More →


13th Region Week 5 Review

By Les - 1. South Laurel (12-1 overall, 4-0 vs. 13th Region opposition) The Cardinals are winners of 12 straight after posting a 3-0 record in the Legacy Nissan Dribble Drive Challenge. They were able to capture two Tournament titles during Christmas Break, and will face-off against Harlan County for the second time this season on Saturday during the Raymond Reed Classic. 2. Clay County (14-0, 4-0) The Tigers are rolling, and look quite impressive. Glenn Gray’s squad hasn’t lost yet this season, and added another tournament championship after winning the Cumberland Falls Invitational... Read More →


3rd Region Week 5 Review: Wide Open

By ApolloFan98 - With the Holiday Tournament season in the books, this region looks as wide open as ever. While last weeks #1 Owensboro doesn't quite have the record of a top team, their strength of schedule is by far the toughest of any other team in the region. Middle of the pack teams like Muhlenberg, Butler County and Ohio County all had a very good holiday tournament season. Expect these rankings to continue to be fluid from week to week. 1. Breckenridge County Tigers (11-2) UP 2 The Tigers have now won 7 straight games and picked up 2 holiday tournament trophies along the way. This past week... Read More →


16th Region Week 5 Review

By Carson Palmer - The Christmas break barrage of games is history. Elliott County took the week off but still remains atop the region rankings. Rowan County is still unbeaten and teams 3-12 continue to fluctuate from week to week. 1. ELLIOTT COUNTY (10-1) Greg Adkins may have this Christmas break hoop marathon figured out. He gave his Lions a week off to recharge their batteries and not play six games in 10 days. The Lions will jump back in action at home against Lewis County Thursday. 2. ROWAN COUNTY (14-0) The Vikings dominated an inferior field to win a tournament at Williamstown. Mason Moore and... Read More →


11th Region Week 5 Review

By mooremiller31 - A week full of holiday tournaments have passed and the season is in full swing. This past week some of the top teams in the region made some statements while others are still trying to find their identity. One team is not only starting to distance themselves from the rest of the region but maybe the state as a whole. Lets get to the rankings! Team Rankings 1. Scott County (13-0) - The Cardinals traveled to Myrtle Beach this week for the prestigious Beach Ball Classic and at the time of this post are preparing to play in the championship game against Westchester, California. During the... Read More →


15th Region Week 5 Review: No Undefeated Teams Left

By 15th Region - Overview: Johnson Central brought home their second tournament win of the year and third to the region, Shelby Valley suffered their first loss, Paintsville continues to roll and the 2A Classic is set to tip off for regional teams. Rankings are as follows: Rankings (overall record): 1. (-) Shelby Valley (10-1) – Shelby Valley lost their first game of the year, but remain number one as they finished 2-1 in week five. In the Mountain School Boy Classic at Belfry, the Wildcats fell to Bourbon County 47-61 despite 29 points from Cody Potter. They would bounce back with a 65-53 win over... Read More →


2nd Region Week 5 Review

By silo11 - Holiday Tournaments have completed and nothing really of note to change. University Heights showed that they are one of the top teams in the state and have establish themselves as a favorite for the All “A” Classic State Tournament coming up later in January. A big game between Madisonville and Hopkinsville is on June 3rd, both teams want to establish themselves as the number 2 team in the region. Here are the rankings: 1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse BGP#3 2018-19 record: 10-2 Week’s Record: 4-0 The Blazers won the championship game of the Traditional Bank... Read More →


5th Region Week 5 Review: Top Three Continue To Impress

By Sportslover32 - 1. Larue County (10-2): The Hawks won all three games and won the Magnolia Bank Holiday Classic. They beat Carlisle County 68-29, beat Bullitt Central 52-50, and beat Southwestern 80-40. The Hawks took care of business and had to win a close game against Bullitt Central to get to the finals. Mark Goode had 23 points and 7 rebounds in the win over Bullitt Central. They can throw so many big bodies at you that it makes it tough for its opponents. This team hasn’t done anything to make you think this team can’t represent the 5th Region in State. 2. John Hardin (12-0): The Bulldogs won all... Read More →


9th Region Week 5 Review: The 9th Represented well in Holiday Tournaments!!!!

By PP1 - We all love this game. We remember coaches and teammates for the rest of our lives. We replay games and even specific plays in our minds as we get older. But alas, it is a mere game. When a member of the basketball brotherhood passes away, even those of us that were not close to him feel the loss. I only knew Bob Burkhart from Starbucks and even then, we never exchanged names. I remember he gave my son a High-Five once and I have read stories about him training young officials and leaving a positive mark in this community. I am reminded of a time when Jesus told a crowd of people “whatever... Read More →


7th Region Week 5 Review: A Tough Week

By Smallhoops - This was not a great week for Seventh Region teams. Teams were spread across the Commonwealth plus Tennessee and Florida playing in Holiday tournaments, and only one escaped without a loss; the Waggener Wildcats went to Pensacola, Florida, and returned as champions of the Crusader Classic. Congratulations to the Wildcats. Every other team that played this week lost at least once, and many lost multiple games. Most teams have not had an opportunity to update their statistics on the KHSAA website, so I am a little light on stats this week. I am hoping teams can catch up on those this... Read More →


1st Region Week 5 Review

By silo11 - No movement this week in the rankings. The top 3 teams all went 2-1 in their respective holiday play. McCracken County lost their first game of the season in a championship game and Graves County suffered their first loss to a Kentucky team. Here is what happened this week around Region 1: 1. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower BGP #11 2018-19 record: 11-1 Week’s Record: 2-1 The Mustangs went to Palm Springs to play in the Holiday Basketball Classic. They won the first to games they played against Calvary Day School and the host school Dwyer. However they were unable to... Read More →
