Inside the 2nd Region (12/8/13)

By The Scribe - Mother Nature has always shown she is not a fan of high school sports, and weather cancellations in the first week of the basketball season further drives home this point. Teams that opened play earlier in the week were able to get their opening games played, but later week contests went by the wayside in what was one of the earliest weather postponements in recent memory. Hopping Along Hopkinsville opened defense of their region title on a different date and against a different opponent. The Tigers were scheduled to open at Russellville Thursday and then play Evansville Bosse... Read More →

Inside the 13th Region (12/8/13)

By Les - If the first week of play in the 13th Region is any signs of things to come, things could be very interesting to say the least. Both Corbin and Whitley County made some early season noise by pulling off upset wins while teams such as Barbourville are off to a surprising 2-0 start. But just when things look like they are changing, the more they are staying the same as defending 13th Region champion Clay County is off to an impressive 2-0 start after double-digit wins over Oneida Baptist and South Laurel. 13th Region Player of the Week Andrew Taylor, Corbin He might only be an...

By Bluegrasscard - Scott County is currently the largest high school in all of Kentucky with 2,374 students according to the official count. With over 1,200 boys this puts Scott County on par numerically with the Louisville Catholic schools. Scott County, in its current form, has the numbers to be a power and compete with the Super District. Last years 7 point loss to Trinity, at Trinity, proved that Scott County was ready for the long awaited break through. The State Championship for 6A is less than 24 hours away and McKee's Cardinals are the favorites. But Scott County is overcrowded with all the... Read More →

10th Region Player Profile: Shawn Johnson

By Randy Parker - 10th Region Player Profile: Shawn Johnson- 6'7" Sr. (Mason County) Mason County's Shawn Johnson is one of those players that you watch during the course of a 32-minute game and there's really nothing that stands out--nothing that screams, "This guy is one of the best players around." Then you take a look at the stat sheet after the game and you notice Johnson's final tallies: 21 points and 17 rebounds, going 9-11 from the floor and 3-4 from the free throw line. And you say to yourself, "I didn't realize he played that well." But that's what you get from Johnson--not much in terms of the... Read More →

10th Region Player Profile: Bryan Wallace

By Randy Parker - 10th Region Player Profile: Bryan Wallace- 6'0" Sr. (Montgomery County) Bryan Wallace came to Montgomery County last year from Shelby County and did not disappoint. As a junior the 6'0 guard was the Indians #2 scorer, behind the amazing Omar Prewitt, and seemed to have a knack for stepping up when the spotlight shined its brightest. In a 10th Region Tournament semifinal contest with Bishop Brossart, Wallace scored 21 points in helping his team to a convincing 16-point victory. When Montgomery arrived at Rupp Arena for just the second time in school history, Wallace averaged 17 points in... Read More →

In the search box type in "Alex Trentman dunk" and then enjoy.

What you'll see in the clips is visual confirmation as to why the Bishop Brossart big man is one of the 10th Region's elite individual performers. You'll the the Trentman follow-up rebound dunk. You'll see the... Read More →

2013-14 Kentucky High School Basketball Preview - 1st Region

By The Scribe - For the first time in five years, there are major changes in store for the alignment of the First Region. The creation of McCracken County caused the 14 schools to be aligned closer to geographical lines. All four Paducah schools are now in the Second District, with St. Mary leaving the Third District and Community Christian exiting the Fourth. The Third and Fourth Districts will now be three-team districts meaning the regular season champ gets an automatic trip to the region tournament by virtue of being seeded into the championship game of the district. Graves County is the... Read More →

10th Region Player Profile: Brent Bach

By Randy Parker - 10th Region Player Profile: Brent Bach- 6'1" Sr. (Augusta) There are two photographs, taken almost exactly one year apart, that best tell the Brent Bach story up to this point in his high school basketball career. The first one was taken on February 23, 2012 and shows a distraught Bach lying face down on the gym floor of "The Igloo"--the home of the Bracken County Polar Bears. The picture captures Bach's obvious disappointment after scoring 27 points, but missing a putback basket at the buzzer that would have given his Augusta Panthers an improbable 39th District championship win over...

The Tigers return senior big man Jaqualis Matlock and add guard Quan Poindexter from cross-town rival Christian County.

2013-14 Kentucky High School Basketball Preview- 9th Region

By Walter - When it comes to 9th region basketball, there is almost always never any guarantees. Last season the Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds and Cooper Jaguars came in as the preseason #1 and #2 teams in the region. Newcath ended up as All “A” Classic state champions and finished with a 30-3 record but were bounced from the region tournament in the first round. The Cooper Jaguars set a school record with 24 wins and 6 losses, winning 16 of their final 18 games, but were eliminated in the region semi finals on an overtime 3 pointer. That brings us to the #4 team in the coaches preseason... Read More →

2013-14 Kentucky High School Basketball Preview - 11th Region

By JokersWild24 - Ranking the 11th: 1. Scott County: Another year, another preseason #1 for Billy Hicksí Scott County Cardinals. With a few familiar faces returning in Trent Gilbert, Tony Martini, Seth Crank, and Dylan Portwood joining forces with newcomers like 7í0 Raekwon Long and smooth wing Teddy Ware, the Cards look to return to Rupp. One of the great unknowns for this team is who will be running the point against some of the more tenacious pressure defenses that the 11th will throw out. 2. Lexington Catholic: It seems as though itís been awhile since the Lexington Catholic Knights and Scott... Read More →
