Seventh Region Tournament Preview

By Smallhoops - Since the current make-up of the Seventh Region was created following the 2010-11 season, the same group of teams have almost always found their way to the Seventh Region tournament. In fact, the same group of 8 teams that played in the 2011-12 Seventh Region tournament are playing in this season's Seventh Region tournament. Six of the teams (Ballard, Central, Male, Manual, St. Xavier, and Trinity) have played in the tournament every year since the 2011-12 season. Eastern has only missed one year (last year). Seneca is back after missing the tournament the past four years. The... Read More →

Board of Control addresses postseason formats, future sites and alignments

By theguru - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 21, 2018 During the course of its February meeting at the KHSAA offices on Wednesday, the Board of Control deliberated on the postseason formats, future sites and alignments for several sports. The most impactful decision made Wednesday concerned the future of the state softball tournament, with the Board voting for the event to transition to a single-elimination format in 2019. The move to single elimination will bring the softball championship more in-line with the baseball state tournament while also helping to alleviate concerns with the potential...

By silo11 - Districts are here and everyone will be watching what takes place in District 8 between University Heights and Hopkinsville. The winner of this game advances to the District title game against likely winner Christian County. The loser will be out. UHA has won 2 games against Hopkinsville this season, but the Tigers are at full strength and are playing well. Look for Madisonville and Henderson County to pull an upset when region tournament starts. 1. Christian County – Coach Kerry Stovall 2017-18 record: 19-6 Preseason Rank:2 The Colonels finished their season defeating defending... Read More → 1st Region Final Rankings & District Previews

By silo11 - 1st Region Boys Basketball Review Week 10 There are 4 legit teams that can win Region 1 and make a splash at Rupp. 2 of those teams have separated themselves from the field, Mayfield and McCracken County. Paducah Tilghman and Graves both have the talent to win the region tournament but need to improve play in order to do so. Fulton County has been playing great basketball lately and moved up to number 6 in the rankings. 1. Mayfield – Coach Chris Guhy BGP #15 2017-18 record: 25-5 Preseason Rank: 2 Mayfield won both their games this week finishing off a...

By ColonelMike - Another season has flown by. I think that feeling is heightened by my age, but perhaps not. It just seems that the preseason rankings were just released and we all began speculating on who would really have the breakout year and who would be holding the trophy in New Castle in March. Last week wasn't the best of weeks for the 8th region... Boyle County held off Oldham County in Danville, 67-61....North Bullitt stunned South Oldham, 75-61... Gallatin fell to Beechwood, 61-55....and Simon Kenton was walloped by Covington Catholic, 84-59 as four of the region's top teams fell to...

By 15th Region - 2017-2018 15th Region Season Review - District Tournament's Preview 15th Region Overview: Practiced started in October, games in November, today we start the greatest tournament in the state of Kentucky. The regular season in the 15th Region was filled with up’s and down’s. Pikeville was dominate until the injury to Cade Byers, Floyd Central and Johnson Central played brutal schedules, Shelby Valley and Paintsville proved to be better than expected. In a region devoid of any superior teams that can compete with anyone in the state, the 15th had plenty of competitive balance amongst its...

By 24Bricks - 16th Post Season Preview 1. Ashland (21-4) – After a terrific regular season, the Tomcats lost a game in each of the last two weeks. This week, Ashland fell to Russell at home, after defeating the Red Devils by 31 earlier in the year. I still look for the Tomcats to perform well in the district, but facing Fairview in the first round is anything but a sure win. If the Tomcats can put together a win, they are all but certain to face Boyd County for the fourth time this season. Despite the late season losses, Ashland is still the favorite, if only by a small margin, to win the Region. ... Read More → 11th Region Final Rankings and District Predictions

By mooremiller31 - The regular season has come to a close and the 11th Region sets at the top once again as the toughest region in the state of Kentucky. Weve had a lot of ups and downs in the rankings this season but one thing has remained the same....the Scott County Cardinals are the class of the region. Having said that their is a handful of teams that have proven they can compete with anyone in the state and will surely give the Cardinals a run for their money in the next few weeks!! Team of the Week Lexington Christian Academy - What a week for the Eagles. Possibly the best week any team in the 11th... Read More → Seventh Region recap and district tournament preview

By Smallhoops - Success means different things to different teams in the Seventh Region. For example, a successful season for the Trinity Shamrocks is measured differently than for the Walden Wolverines, even though the two schools are within walking distance of each other. Most teams in the Seventh Region achieved some level of success during the regular season, and they should celebrate those successes. There weren’t many major surprises in the regular season, although there were a few. The Collegiate Titans’ 23-win season, easily the best in school history, was not expected by many. Teams like the... Read More → 5th Region Final Rankings and District Tourney Preview

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (23-7): The Bulldogs won both games this week on the road. They beat Bullitt East at Bullitt East 76-62 and beat Daviess County at Daviess County 83-79. This is two very good road wins as the Daviess County win was against the favorite in the 3rd region. Their resume all year has been the best in the 5th Region. Mickey Pearson who was named 5th region player of the year had an insane 47 and 15 night in the win over Daviess County. In the 17th District they will play the winner of North Hardin and Fort Knox at Central Hardin. 2. Larue County (25-2): The Hawks have done...

By All State Baseball - And just like that, a blink of an eye, the basketball season has came and gone for the 2017/18 season. Post season starts tomorrow, meaning that 13 teams will see their season come to an end, fortunately, every team in the 14th region will have an extra day of practice as no boy games for the 14th region will be played tomorrow, those district games will get underway on Tuesday. 1. Knott County Central (24-5): The Patriots ended their season with a 55-41 road win at Hazard, picking up their 8th straight victory and 9 of their last 10 games. 7 of those 8 straight wins, have been blowouts,...

By MidwestUnited - The district tournaments begin this week around the 9th Region at various sites. CovCath, Cooper and Dixie Heights are prohibitive favorites in their districts. If any of those three teams lose in district action, it will be the result of a major upset. Keep an eye on the 36th District, as NewCath vs. Highlands could be a dandy in the first round. If NewCath defeats Highlands, they will likely face rival Newport in the championship game. Two weeks ago, Newport snapped a 16-game losing streak in the series against NewCath. That game was played on the Wildcats home floor, this one will be on... Read More →
