Bluegrasspreps.com 2018 - Inside the 8th Region 1-28-18

By ColonelMike - As we head into month #3 of the 2017-18 season, the 8th region continues to have no clear-cut favorite. The Big Three remain the Big Three - but all three are showing reasons why they should be number one - and reasons why they shouldn't be. Meanwhile, at least four schools are showing the ability to make a run for the 2018 title. If that's not cause enough for excitement, how about this: 7 of the top 8 teams appear headed for the Region 8 Tournament in New Castle, assuming no upsets in the district tournaments. I’ve been covering the 8th region since 1979….and I was watching it closely... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com Region 16 Week in Review (1-28-18)

By 24Bricks - 16th Region Basketball in Review Teams in the 16th were able to play a full schedule for the first time in the last three weeks and it didn’t disappoint. I'm more convinced then ever that the total disparity in the region is minuscule. With Fleming County beginning to win games and the top teams looking vulnerable it appears the region is truly up for grabs. 1. Ashland (17-2) – The Tomcats came away with two victories this week, but both were hard fought and much closer than most, including myself, would have expected. Early in the week Ashland barely escaped with a 1-point win... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com 4th Region Weekly Rankings (1/28/18)

By DragonFire - Fourth Region Rankings 1) Warren Central (18-3) - 1/23 69-56 W at #11 South Warren, 1/26 57-66 L #2 Bowling Green Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 1/30 vs. Taylor County, 2/2 vs. #7 Warren East, 2/3 at Elizabethtown A huge run in the second quarter decided each game for the Dragons this week. Unfortunately for them, only one of those was by them. The Dragons blew open the game against South Warren with a 19-1 run, turning a 4 point lead into 22 midway through the quarter. Perhaps it was ominous that the Dragons then sleptwalked through much of the rest of the game, including... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps.com 8th Region rankings 1-23-18

By ColonelMike - The 8th Region once again claimed some nice victories against powerful competition from outside the region this past week....Kudos to Walton-Verona for a big win over Campbell County, one of the top two ranked teams in the 10th region, and ranked in the top 20 of the Bluegrasspreps.com statewide poll....have to think the Bearcats should be getting a little more love statewide... Ditto for Collins; the red-hot Titans needed overtime, but they defeated 6th region power Valley, 100-94. Valley is unranked, but beat Mayfield twice and PRP, while losing to Butler and Paducah Tilghman each in... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps.com 3rd Region Rankings 1/23/2018

By ApolloFan98 - The 3rd region is starting to become a 1 horse race. The Owensboro Red Devils have emerged now as the overwhelming favorite to rep the 3rd at Rupp Arena. Not only are they winning region games, they are blowing teams out. With the way they play, it would be hard to foresee them being upset in an elimination game. Its time to start looking at the Devils in the state polls. 1.Owensboro Red Devils (14-4) – SAME – The Devils continued to show their dominance inside the region with a 82-65 win at Daviess County on Saturday. The game was never in doubt. OHS was led by Cory Gardner's 27. ... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com 6th Region Week in review (1/22/18)

By coachlee - Going to be a little shorter edition due to an out of town trip, but wanted to be sure to get a new Top Rankings out in the 6th region as we have a new #1 for the first time since early in the 2016/2017 season, the Doss Dragons. Doss outworked the Fern Creek team to flip rankings with the Tigers and claim the #1 spot with a 65-59 victory in the LIT semifinals on Saturday. But Butler is right there with them as they actually played eventual LIT champion to a very tight game losing on a last second shot by the Shamrocks. There is not much separation with these 3 and it will be a battle to... Read More →

BluegrassPreps.com 10th Region Week in Review 1-22-18

By mcpapa - Last week's number one took care of number three, only to fall the next day. But last week's biggest news was Robertson County winning the regional All-A title as a heavy underdog; and becoming possibly the first sports team in recent memory (although they did have a really good debate team a while back) to advance to a "state tournament" of any kind. 1. Clark County (16-3, 7-1 region). The Cardinals are riding a six-game winning streak on the strength of home wins over Rowan County (78-42) and 12th-region powerhouse Pulaski County. Will Philpot led a quartet of Cardinals in double... Read More →

BluegrassPreps.com 16th Region Review (1-22-18)

By 24Bricks - 16th Region Basketball Week in Review Winter weather once again disrupted play in the 16th Region, but the sun came out long enough this weekend to see Ashland collect it’s first in region loss, and finally get the All A underway. Outside of a Tomcat loss, everything else seemed to stay to course, in that there is no course. Consistency in shooting, defense, toughness, and turnovers or lack thereof, has been elusive for all but a few in the region. Which leads unpredictable results, close games, and at times some ummmm…not so pretty basketball. 1. Ashland (15-2) – The Tomcats... Read More →
