By SHS Future - 12th Region Basketball Week 2 Week two of the young basketball season is finished and high school hoops is now in full swing. Although still a little rusty, teams are starting to figure out where they stand and what they need to do to improve. There was plenty of 12th Region action, along with some early district competition, causing some movement in this week’s rankings. So take a look and see what your favorite team did last week and see what they have on their slate this week. 12th Region Rankings: 1) Pulaski County Maroons (1-1) - The Maroons are not a team that shies away...

By ApolloFan98 - While competitive within the region, 3rd region teams have not faired well against outside competition. The top 5 teams have some bad losses to Warren East and Madisonville. Meanwhile top ranked teams Warren Central and John Hardin have also had their way with 3rd region opponents. The 3rd has a ways to go before they can prove they can hang with top state competition. 1.Owensboro Catholic Aces (4-1) - SAME - The Aces continued their hot start this week with big double digit wins over Muhlenberg 50-38 & Apollo 75-59. The win over Apollo was especially impressive with Apollo's solid... Read More → Region 8 Week 2 in Review - 12/10/17

By ColonelMike - Two weeks into the season, the favorites are still the favorites, but we have started to learn some things as the games have been played: ...Except for District 30, the favorites seem to have stepped forward in each district. Walton-Verona (32nd), Oldham County (29th), and Gallatin County (31st) seem to have established themselves as the clear front-runners in their respective districts. In the 30th, the view seems a bit more muddied. Defending 8th region champ Collins? Slumping Anderson? Up-and-coming Spencer? ...nobody can shoot free throws, or at least, it sure seems that...

By All State Baseball - 1. Knott County Central (3-1): The Patriot swent 2-1 last week in the WYMT Classic. They kicked things off by defeating Pike County Central 67-40 but they would fall in the very next game to Knox Central 74-57 in the semi-finals but would bounce back and defeat Clay County 68-57. Knott Central travels just down the road Friday to take on district foe, Cordia in a big district showdown. The Patriots will follow that up on Saturday by traveling to Pike Central to take on Belfry at 5:30 PM in the Buffalo Wild Wings Shootout. 2. Perry County Central (1-2): The Commodores split two games they... Read More → 6th Region Weekly Rankings (12/11)

By coachlee - 1. Fern Creek (3-1): Fern Creek lost to #1 Trinity on the Rocks home court after leading by 10 at the half. Trinity shot 18 for 19 from the free throw line while Fern Creek was 3/9. That was a major reason why, but the Tigers also failed to rebound on the defensive end and showed some cracks in the armor if they continue those trends in two key areas of play. The Tigers are getting 21.5 PPG from Ahmad Price, 19.5 from Anthony Wales and 12 from Clint Wickliffe to form a strong trio of scoring threats. They have also defeated both PRP and Doss on their home court by double figures to remain... Read More →

Inside the 13th Region (12/10/17)

By Les - 1. Knox Central (5-0 overall, 0-0 vs. 13th Region competition) The Panthers are coming off a top-notch effort in the WYMT Mountain Classic. They defeated Wolfe County, Knott central and Floyd Central to capture the program’s first WYMT Mountain Classic championship. Knox Central dominated all three games it played during the WYMT Mountain Classic, winning by an average of 26.6 points. People need to start paying attention to the play of senior guard Markelle Turner. Turner averaged 22.6 points per game during Knox Central’s three wins this past week. He also scored 24 points in the title... Read More → Region 16 Week 2

By 24Bricks - 16th Region Basketball Week 2 As week two ends in the 16th Region the picture isn’t much clearer for positions 3-13. Ashland and Boyd County both have proved to be as talented and capable as expected, with Ashland putting up a dominating performance against a talented Capital WV team. Past that the teams have proven that they can win/lose against the same team from one night to the next. Thus far it seems the ability to knock down shots with consistency will determine the winner on any given night. 1. Ashland (4-0) – Ashland went 3-0 for the week including a most impressive beating... Read More → 5th Region Weekly Rankings (12/10/17)

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (4-0): John Hardin got 3 lopsided wins this week. They beat Fort Knox on the road 98 to 42, beat Breckinridge county 80 to 55, and beat Dupont Manual 83 to 59 at Bardstown.

Larue County (4-0): Larue has moved up in the rankings after going 3 and 0 this week. They beat North Hardin 43 to 37, beat Hart County 72 to 37, and beat Muhlenberg county 67 to 50.

By mcpapa - Week 2 was a tumultuous one, and finds a new squad at the top of the heap. Two weeks in, and there's only one unbeaten left. But... 1. Campbell County (4-1, 2-0 Region). The Camels served notice this week that, after losing to Cooper in the season opener, they're still a force in the 10th. Coach Russell's Camels took a trio of contests this time around, beginning with a 77-59 win over Covington Holy Cross that found them down 8 at halftime. Reid Jolly and Tanner Clos had 26 and 21 respectively. The Camels then took to the 40th district on Friday and Saturday; first handling the... Read More →

By silo11 - Region 2 may have some very talented players on rosters, but this is probably the weakest the region has been overall in quite some time. Christian County is ranked number 13 in the latest BGP poll, however the season will need to progress to determine whether that ranking is warranted or not. Here are the updates for this week. 1. Christian County – Coach Kerry Stovall 2017-18 record: 1-0 Week’s Record: 1-0 *BGP #13 The Colonels have earned the top spot in the region with their win over Paducah Tilghman even though it posed some questions.

By silo11 - The top teams in Region 1 are pretty good. Mayfield made the preseason rankings coming in no. 18, but they don't have the topspot in the regions. At least not yet. Paducah Tighlman holds that spot until someone in the 1st takes it from them. But there are a quite a few teams who feel they can this year. Some strong statements have already been made by Graves County and Marshall County. This week already has some exciting matchups between the top teams, we could see some shake up in the standings by this time next week. 1. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas...

By mcpapa - Week one is in the books. The presumptive number one squad survived a nail-biter on the road, the preseason number two doesn't have its (possibly) best player; and if the first week is any indication, the season looks to be a great one for the 10th. Let's take a quick look at last week. 1. Clark County (2-0, 2-0 region) The Cardinals started the week with a 50-point thumping of Nicholas County. Chase Taylor led in scoring with 18, Brennan Canada filled the stat line with 13/6/4, and Ryan Cooper chipped in a dozen. The bench got significant playing time in this one. Game number 2...

Inside the 4th Region (12/4/17)

By DragonFire - Fourth Region Rankings 1) Warren Central (2-0) - 11/28 87-64 W at Henderson County, 12/1 58-57 W Apollo Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 12/5 vs. Owensboro, 12/9 vs. Paducah Tilghman (at South Warren) The Dragons got the desired results in some different ways, but are out to the 2-0 start. Henderson County jumped up 25-12 on the Dragons before Central blitzed back, leading by as many as 32 before settling in for the 23 point win. Against Apollo, Central had more trouble finding the shooting touch, and survived a driving layup attempt that would have felled them at the buzzer. Skyelar... Read More →
