Inside the 8th Region 2-26-15

By ColonelMike - Hated to miss last Sunday's update, but wound up working...ugh. COMING UP IN THIS SPACE....analysis of all 8 teams headed to New Castle for the annual classic, the 8th Region tournament. For those unaware....the 8th Region is the longest-tenured region tournament in Kentucky at its current location. The 8th began playing in New Castle when the current gym was opened in 1963. It's been there ever since. It's become such a revered tradition that - a few years ago when Henry County HS performed some major renovations, amid serious parking concerns - they kept the tourney there,... Read More →

In this article there will be a recap on the season and a look on how close the Top Ten Preseason rankings compared to the Final rankings. At the end will be Awards for individual players and Coach of the Year. The season started with a bang when Doss beat PRP in the opener for both teams in a 62-61 thriller. PRP came from down 13 with less than 2 minutes to go and almost came back but fell short. Could the season have been different had PRP posted the win? Doss went on to post an 11-0 record against...

In this week's edition of "Inside the 9th Region" we will preview each district tournament, post the final 9th Region poll, as well as hand out some awards for regular season play. As my man Jay Bilas would say in his best Jeezy impersonation: "Let's Get It!" 33rd District Location: Cooper Schedule: February 23rd Read More →

Inside the 13th Region 2-23-15

By Les - 1. Knox Central (16-11 overall, 10-2 vs. 13th competition) The Panthers hold on to the top spot after slipping past Jackson County this past week, 67-64. This I do know — if you’re going to try and run with the Panthers, the odds are, you’re going to lose. Knox Central used a fast-pace tempo to wear down the Tigers during Tuesday’s win, and it worked. Matt Barger showed he is the best point guard in the region by dictating the pace and scoring 23 points while Chad Marsee added 23 points and 12 rebounds. Jeffrey Adams came off the bench and hit two key three-pointers, but the unsung heroes... Read More →

Inside the 15th Region - Season Review/Awards/57th, 58th, 59th, 60th District Preview

By 15th Region - 15th Region Overview: The regular season has come and gone and with it everyone's record is reset. Tournament time is here but before we break down the region district by district, let's recap the basketball season the 15th Region saw. Injury and illness seemed to plague the best teams in the region. Johnson Central saw the worst of it early by losing Senior PF Truman Salyer for the year to a football injury before the season began, Kyle Gullett to an ankle injury in the 3rd game of the season (missed 8 games), Patrick Rice (Morehead State University signee) for 6 weeks due to a...

37th District Tournament Preview

By Randy Parker - 37th District Tournament Preview The Campbell County Middle School is again the site for the 37th District Tournament, where Brad Carr's Scott Eagles are the top-seed. Campbell County, the defending District and Regional champs, claimed the #2 seed and will square off with bitter rival Bishop Brossart, the #3 seed. Silver Grove and Calvary Christian find themselves in familiar positions as the #4 and #5 seeds, respectively. The 37th is typically a dog-fight, and we don't expect that to change in 2015. Scott went through the regular season undefeated in district play, thanks in... Read More →

38th District Tournament Preview

By Randy Parker - 38th District Tournament Preview The 10th Region's newest home floor, Robertson County High School, will be the site for the 2015 38th District Tournament. One of four districts in Kentucky that uses a blind draw for its postseason, the 38th actually looks more like a seeded tournament than a drawn tournament this year. Harrison County and Pendleton County are opposite one another after having squared off in the opening round the last 3 seasons. This year, the Thorobreds will face Nicholas County, while the Wildcats take on the host Black Devils. Harrison County, the two-time... Read More →

39th District Tournament Preview

By Randy Parker - 39th District Tournament Preview The tradition rich Mason County Fieldhouse is the venue for the 2015 39th District Tournament. This annual February get-together has drawn statewide attention for the last two years, thanks to Augusta twice knocking off Mason County in the opening round. There will be no first round matchup between the two this year, as we'll see county rivals square off to start the tourney. The two-time defending champ Panthers will take on Bracken County, while the heavy-favorite Royals entertain St. Patrick. Undefeated in the 10th Region, and with only 2... Read More →

40th District Tournament Preview

By Randy Parker - 40th District Tournament Preview Bourbon County is the host for the 2015 40th District Tournament. While the bracket is set up exactly as it has been the last 2 seasons, there seems to be much more parity this year. Top-seeded Montgomery County lost its first district game to Paris by a score of 54-51 on December 9th. But the Indians won their last 5 district contests, including a couple of nail-biters against rival George Rogers Clark, and then avenged the Paris loss with a road victory two weeks ago. Four Indians have double-digit scoring averages, led by 6'3" junior Art... Read More →

2015 15th District Tournament Preview

By DragonFire - There are not many 4th Region records in any time recent that I would claim to not know, but Monroe County accomplished something this season that I am not certain of how long it has been since it occurred. The Falcons ran through their regular season unbeaten against 4th Region teams, and I cannot tell you the last time a team outside the 14th District accomplished that. It is very rare and Monroe County is to be applauded for it. I point that out so you may understand that it is a no-brainer that they are the clear cut favorite for the 15th District crown. That’s not to say they’re... Read More →

2015 13th District Tournament Preview

By DragonFire - Last year the 13th District was chaos, with seemingly anyone capable of beating any other team. There’s not nearly as much of that this season and everything settled into a nice package at the end, with Logan County sweeping everyone, Russellville sweeping everyone else, and Franklin-Simpson just sweeping Todd County Central. Which would seem to set up a boring 13th District tournament, but there is just a bit of intrigue out there thanks to a long midseason absence of the best player in the district, and what his return might bring to the postseason. To the matchups….. February 24th... Read More →

Coach Joe Prince - Thoughts on Football

By theguru - Coaches, 1st I am leaving KY to coach in another state. So my opinions are probably irrelevant, but here goes. I do not want to offend anyone in any way, form or fashion. So please just consider what I have to say. 2nd I was very active at one time in the FB Association. I appreciate what the coaches before me did for our programs, i.e.. Gerald Poynter, Lynn Ray, Sam Harp, Jack Morris, etc. Football has been great for me and my family throughout my life. It truly saved me from being just another poor uneducated person. 3rd We did all the 7 on 7 in June, workouts in July,... Read More →
