By Randy Parker - 2015 10th Region Region Tournament Preview Mason County's historic Fieldhouse is again the site for the 10th Region Tournament. Aric Russell's Campbell County Camels claimed last year's crown and could very well cut the nets again, but judging by regular season standards, the favorite is host Mason County.The Royals largely plowed through the 10th Region from the season's outset until now, earning 15 wins and a big fat zilch in the loss department. Paris and Pendleton County enter as the most surprising District champions out of the 40th and 38th Districts, respectively. Harrison County... Read More →

Inside the 8th Region 3-1-15

By ColonelMike - The Region tournament is finally here, and six teams return from last year, with two newcomers. It will be hard to match the drama of the 2014 tournament, won by South Oldham. Last year's tourney featured six games decided by 8 or fewer points, and three of those went to overtime, including South's 60-57 win over Simon Kenton in the finals. Only Oldham County's 13 point win over Henry County in the first round had a double-digit margin - and even that game was no cakewalk for the victors. The 29th district has won the last four titles....and no team outside the "current" 29th and... Read More →

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.

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 →

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

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 →

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 →
