4th Region Week 2 Review: The Middle's A Mess But The Top Is Certain

By DragonFire - 1) Warren Central (2-0) - 12/4 81-68 W at Owensboro Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 12/10 at #3 Glasgow, 12/13 at #16 Franklin-Simpson Central played only one game this week thanks to Paducah pulling out of their game due to the ACT, but they stayed hot with an 81-68 victory at Owensboro, their second 80+ point effort of the year. Dre Boyd led the way with 19 points on 7/12 shooting, and a perfect 5-5 from the foul line to go with 13 rebounds. The win didn't come easy, as the Dragons trailed after the first and third quarters. A late surge was keyed by an Antonio Barbee basket coupled... Read More →


7th Region Review Week 2: Waggener beats Ballard; Central over Male; Trinity the best

By Smallhoops - The big news in the Seventh Region this week was Waggener’s 80-74 win over Ballard on Tuesday night, its first victory in 71 tries against the Bruins. Ballard Coach Chris Renner attended Waggener and had previously coached at Waggener, while Waggener Coach Bryan O’Neill attended Ballard and had both played for and coached with Coach Renner. It was a fun, competitive game between two well-coached teams. There was plenty of other action in the Seventh Region this week. Central beat Male 84-73 in a classic old school Seventh Region match-up Friday night. Trinity continued to show why it... Read More →

11th Region Week 1 Review

By mooremiller31 - The first week of the season has come and gone. The more things change the more they stay the same is a good theme for this week. While most of the normal power brokers remain near the top their have been some surprises. Overall it was a good first week for the 11th Region. Team Rankings 1. Scott County (3-0) - What a start to the season for the Cardinals! They knocked off 2 top 25 teams in the state in South Laurel and Ballard by 30 points each and then traveled to Marshall County for the Hoopfest and knocked off Olive Branch, Mississippi who was ranked in the preseason top 50 in the...

3rd Region Week 1 Review

By ApolloFan98 - With all of the turnover in the rosters, it was interesting to watch the results come in from the first week of action. A few things really jumped out. Owensboro Catholic was expected to be pretty talented but they may be even better than anyone had thought. They have enough talent to maybe make a dent in the Bluegrass Preps top 20 if they can play to their potential. Daviess County turned some heads, pushing a very good Madisonville team late into the 4th quarter before falling short. Lastly, Whitesville Trinity may have one of its most talented rosters in school history. It will be... Read More →


13th Region Week 1 Review

By Les - 1. South Laurel (1-1 overall, 0-0 vs. 13th Region competition) The Cardinals were able to rebound from their loss to Scott County and notch a big win during Friday’s Legacy Nissan Classic win over Tennessee’s Athens Prep. Junior Matthew Cromer scored 33 points in the 88-80 win while senior JJ Ramey added 28 points. The duo was also the leading scorers during South Laurel’s 96-65 loss to top-ranked Scott County. A loss is a loss, but I feel a whole lot better about this Cardinals team after I saw Scott County knock off No. 4 ranked Ballard by 28 points. 2. Knox Central (1-0, 1-0)... Read More →


10th Region Week 1 Review

By One Great Scorer - 1. Campbell County The Camels proved with 9 point win over GRC they are still the top dogs in the 10th Region. They lost the next day to Walnut Ridge, OH. Drew Wilson led the Camels in scoring I believe with 21 (stats not on KHSAA). Reid Jolly was in foul trouble early in the 1st half but still managed a double double. 2. George Rogers Clark They lost to Campbell County, but they are still tough to beat. Jordan Graham only scored 4 points in this one, Brennan Canada scored 13. They started off the week with a blowout over Bath County. 3. Scott Scott had led by 17 in the 2nd... Read More →


6th Region Week 1 Review

By SportsLife - Every 6th Region boys' basketball team made its 2018-19 debut in the new season's opening week. The early 6th Region rankings follow. 1. Butler (3-0): Preseason favorite Butler opened the 2018-19 season with close single-digit wins over 6th Region rival Valley as well as Seneca and Franklin County. The Bears, under the direction of head coach Kentreal Goodin, edged Valley 63-61 in a season opener on Tuesday, Nov. 27. Butler is set to Bullitt East, Moore and Frankfort during the second week of the 2018-19 season. 2. Fern Creek (1-1): Fern Creek didn't have an ideal start to its latest... Read More →


15th Region Week 1 Review

By 15th Region - Overview: The 15th Region saw one of their top teams push one of the best in the 16th to double overtime, a few teams stumble and some early surprises after one week of play. This will be a fun, competitive region to follow throughout the year. Updated rankings are as follows. Rankings (overall record): 1. (-) Johnson Central (1-0) - The Golden Eagles opened the season strong with a dominating win over Jackson County at home by a final of 81-52. Never trailing in the game, JC put four players in double figures led by Cory VanHoose who posted 21 points and 12 rebounds. Isaiah May (15... Read More →


8th Region Week 1 Review: Way Too Early to Tell How This Will Shake Out

By ColonelMike - 8th Region Week 1 in Review OK, I may not get any other prediction right this year, but I'm already right about one thing: this poll may be the most "fluid" we've seen in a while. I think it's going to see significant movements, including some teams that may sink early, only to rise again late in the year. (or this may be the year the joke about a blind squirrel finding an acorn every now and then may apply to this ranking!) Last year, I felt really comfortable with that pre-season preview, and, in the end, the final rankings were a practical mirror of that pre-season ranking. ... Read More →


2nd Region Week 1 Review

By silo11 - This is not the 2nd region we are used to seeing here in Kentucky. With the exception of UHA, the top teams in the region have all taken significant losses already. At the moment it seems that University Heights is the cream of the crop for the region, and then everyone else is looking up with lots of questions. As of now UHA looks to be worthy of the excitement. Here is what happened in Region 2 this week. 1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse BGP#4 2018-19 record: 3-0 Week’s Record: 3-0 The Blazers surprised a lot of people when they opened the season as #4 in... Read More →


5th Region Week 1 Review

By Sportslover32 - 1. Larue County (1-0): The region favorite Larue, started the year with an overtime win. They beat a good team in Valley 64-60 going to overtime in the Corky Cox Classic at home. Mark Goode was fantastic for the Hawks as he had 22 points and 16 rebounds. The Hawks have only had four of the five starters for a week due to their football team making State Semis, so this team getting this win to start off the year is impressive. 2. Central Hardin (2-0): The Bruins had a good start to the year with two lopsided victories. They beat Nelson County at home 78-47 and beat Owensboro in the KY 811... Read More →


9th Region Week 1 Review: A little anti-climactic

By PP1 - 1. Covington Catholic (2-0): No real tests for the Colonels the first week of the season. They got in triple digits on opening night against Ludlow and won 67-52 Thursday against Lexington Catholic. They travel to Ft Thomas on Monday night for a showdown against the 2-0 Bluebirds. 2. Cooper (1-1): Cooper’s loss to Dunbar is surprising in that they only scored 46 points. They travel across the river Friday to take on Elder, prior to that they host, district opponent, Conner Tuesday night. 3. Newport (1-0): The Wildcats defeated Bishop Brossart to move up a slot this week. They... Read More →


4th Region Week 1 Review

By DragonFire - 1) Warren Central (1-0) - 11/30 84-45 W at Apollo Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 12/4 at Owensboro, 12/8 vs. Paducah Tilghman (at South Warren) The Dragons opened their region title defense in style, throttling Apollo on the road in a running clock effort. The Dragons were led by Kobe Brents with 21 points while Kamden Lawrence was a perfect 5/5 from the perimeter to contribute 20. 2) Bowling Green (1-0) - 11/30 84-53 W at #9 Todd County Central Previous Rank: 2 This Week: 12/4 vs. #3 Glasgow, 12/8 vs. Central Hardin (at South Warren) Read More →
