Scott County State Tournament Preview

By JokersWild24 - When I look at Scott County, I see a team capable of winning it, but not one that I'd call the favorite. Of all the teams being bantered about as title hopefuls, they probably have the easiest path to the semis though, and Billy Hicks has been here before, so the players will know the routine. Scott County did beat Trinity head-to-head, and more than a few people are proclaiming Trinity as the best team left in it (or at least 2nd best to Hopkinsville), so you'd think that those people would recognize Scott County as a very serious threat. I think that if you were to take an... Read More →

The... Read More →

Bowling Green State Tournament Preview

By DragonFire - BOWLING GREEN PURPLES For a team that is now making their 2nd trip in 3 seasons to the Sweet 16 and 3rd in 6 seasons, Bowling Green (27-6) was a bit overshadowed this year in their own region. They had a 10 game winning streak in December but took a backseat to Warren Central until the postseason. But now the Purples are riding high with an 8 game winning streak including two wins over the Dragons, and appear to be playing their best ball of the year at just the right time. Coach D.G. Sherrill has his team in top form, as they have won by an average of 20.5 PPG during their win streak with... Read More →

Campbell County State Tournament Preview

By Randy Parker - Campbell County Camels (21-8) Aric Russell brings Campbell County back to Rupp Arena for the first time since the 2000-01 season. The Camels lost 3 of their last 4 regular season games, but quickly regrouped for a 5-game post-season run, starting with a come-from-behind 65-62 victory over Scott in the semifinals of the 37th District Tournament and ending with a 68-61 10th Region title win over defending champ Montgomery County. Russell himself will be on familiar ground, as he led Newport to the Sweet 16 in 2010, but the fourth-year Camels coach presently has his alma mater ... Read More →

2014 7th Region Tournament Preview

By Getslow - The Seventh Region tournament isn’t quite what it once was; realignment took its toll as did a few coaching changes and small declines in certain longtime powerhouses in the area. Still, this is unquestionably one of the deepest regional tournaments you’re likely to find anywhere in the Commonwealth and it should still manage to provide some great entertainment over the next week. Ballard and Trinity are the clear favorites to meet in the finals but both have played in hard-fought games with other teams in this field already this year. That, as they say, is why they play the games… and some... Read More →
