Bluegrasspreps' 2015-16 12th Region Basketball Preview

By Ram - Basketball season begins in less than a month and fans across the state are gearing up for what should be another exciting season of Kentucky high school basketball.

Class 2A Notebook: Reflections of the Empire State Building

By ATLCat - This past week I had the privilege of taking my wife to New York for our anniversary. She had previously never been to the Big Apple so we set our minds at being tourists. The very first attraction we visited upon arrival was the Empire State Building. We were presented with a "True or False" statement. True or False: Lightning never strikes the same spot twice 53372 The answer? FALSE! Each year lightning strikes the Empire State Building an average of 10 times. In perfect harmony with this, we now present the 2A Regional Final Round where lightning definitely struck twice, if not... Read More →

3A Notebook - Final Four, and Boy Can I Pick 'Em?!

By gchs_uk9 - I told you they would be close. Readers of last week's Notebook saw me pick three of the four regional finals to be very close games. I predicted only an eight point total differential in three of the games and it turned out to be thirteen. I'm a genius, right? Well, only at spotting games that will be tight. Because in all three close games I had the wrong team winning! After a week of excitement leading up to the regional finals few of us were disappointed. We saw one game decided on two missed field goals, one on a Hail Mary, one a confirmation of a win earlier in the season, and... Read More →

2015-16 Bluegrasspreps' Girls 6th Region Preview

By Jesse James - Another exciting high school basketball season is just around the corner. The girls 6th region should be very interesting this year with several teams in the mix to compete in the State Tournament which will be held at Northern Kentucky University for the first time after a long stint at Diddle Arena on the campus of Western Kentucky University. A couple of weeks ago, there were what most considered two preseason favorites in Butler and Bullitt East. An unfortunate season-ending surgery for Bullitt East star and recent University of Kentucky commit, Lindsey Duvall, may have separated Butler... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' 2015-16 15th Region Basketball Preview

By 15th Region - 15th Region Overview (Anticipation versus Reality): Last season Johnson Central won their 4th straight 15th Region crown. A feat only previously accomplished by Inez (1934-1937) and Paintsville (1995-1998). The anticipation is that JC will hand over the crown to another team, but the reality is they are still very good and have the best coach in the region in Tommy McKenzie. Notice I did not say the most accomplished coach as there are some very good ones in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, but it is hard to argue anyone is doing a better job than he is right now (not to say he is not...

Bluegrasspreps' 2015-16 6th Region Basketball Preview

By Ram - This basketball season in the 6th Region will be much different than last season in many ways. For starters: Before last season began, it was a toss-up between two teams in PRP & Doss; this season has one team entering the season as an overwhelming favorite in Bullitt East without a serious threat unless the talented young team from Fern Creek has matured fast enough to challenge. Last season Doss beat PRP in the first game and never looked back going 16-0 in their 6th region games; Doss lost their 3 senior stars from that team making a repeat run improbable for the Dragons, but Bullitt...

Bluegrasspreps' 2015-16 4th Region Basketball Preview

By Ram - Entering last season, it seemed like the time was as good as ever for a team outside the 14th District to compete for a title, and the region felt a little more wide open than usual. Sure, we ended with an all-14th final yet again, but Barren County pushed Bowling Green to the brink and Monroe County took down Warren Central in the regular season before faltering in the region. This year, however, entertains none of those notions. And instead of it being 14th District dominance, dominance wears a single color this time around – Purple. Preseason 4th Region Rankings 1. Bowling Green –... Read More →

3A Notebook - Elizabethtown, Central Make Second Round Statements

By gchs_uk9 - Elizabethtown Runs Away from Tilghman Late, Runs on to Caldwell County The questions have been there all season. Whether right or wrong, many around Kentucky 3A have wondered aloud if undefeated and sixth ranked Elizabethtown was as good as the record said. There was reason for doubt. The Panthers' twelve opponents have combined for a 53-80 record, a far cry from the opponent records of the rest of the 3A contenders. But last Friday night had always been pointed to as the chance for E-town to put itself right in the midst of the state title hopefuls. And after finishing off a 42-14 win... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' 2015-16 13th Region Basketball Preview

By Ram - Things are going to be interesting in the 13th Region this season with both South Laurel and Clay County leading the way while the deep and talented North Laurel Jaguars not far behind. The Cardinals haven’t reached the 13th Region Tournament the past two seasons, but return the best starting five in the region. The twin tower combo of Caleb Taylor and Andrew Griffith is going to make South Laurel hard to defend while the Tigers possess two of the best seniors in the region in Blake Smith and Trey Farmer. The Jaguars are the wildcard in the region. North Laurel will be led by talented... Read More →
