By silo11 - 1st Region Boys Basketball Review Week 2 No huge games this past week to decide who sits atop Region 1, however that changes this week with a few big games. Paducah Tilghman vs Graves County, and Mayfield vs McCracken County. The top 4 square off against each other to see who will rise to the top, and who will have to continue looking up. Here are this week's rankings in Region 1. 1. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas 2017-18 record: 3-2 Weeks record: 1-1 Last Week’s Rank: 1 There are a lot of arguments to be made on whether the Blue Tornado deserve...

By mooremiller31 - Another exciting week has come and gone in the 11th Region. As predicted these rankings will most likely change a lot from week to week especially early on in the season. Some big time matchups were unfortunately cancelled due to weather this weekend but still plenty to talk about! Team of the Week Madison Central - The Indians only had one game this week but they made it count coming away with a huge 20 point win over 10th Region favorite George Rogers Clark.

By MidwestUnited - Game of the Week: Newport Central Catholic(4) vs. Covington Catholic(1) Before the game started, Covington Catholic and Newport Central Catholic honored the life of Bob “Bopper” Finnell for his support of northern Kentucky high school sports. For the first sell-out game of the year, Newport Central Catholic came to Park Hills without three injured starters. Covington Catholic was also without three players as members of the football team sat out a week after winning the 5A state championship. CovCath started the first quarter off by scoring 34 points. The Colonels were led by Aiden Ruthsatz... Read More →'s Seventh Region update and rankings - 12/11/17

By Smallhoops - Trinity showed why it is top-ranked in the Seventh Region (and in the state) in its 76-67 defeat of Sixth Region favorite Fern Creek on Saturday. As MentschTrachtGottLacht said in the thread about the game, it was big boy basketball. Perhaps the second most notable game of the week in the Seventh Region was Waggener’s 83-70 win over the St. Xavier Tigers. While St. X was playing without two expected starters who are just returning to the hardwood after the end of the football season, the win improved Waggener’s record to 4-0 and moves them up to third in this week’s rankings. At... Read More → 12th Region Week 2 Review (12/11/17)

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.
