3rd Region Tournament Preview...

By ApolloFan98 - Wednesday Edmonson Co(19-10) vs Meade Co(10-21) These two teams did not meet in the regular season. Meade is a bit of a wild card with James Baker back in the fold. He dropped 28 points to help eliminate red hot Breck County. Edmonson has had a consistently solid season, and sport two of the better scoring guards in the region in Board & Skaggs. Slight Favorite: Meade County Owensboro Catholic(21-10) vs Ohio County(15-13) Both teams were in hard fought district finals with very close outcomes. The Eagles knocked off the Aces in the last week of the season on a Dylan Decker 3 pointer... Read More →



8th regional tourney pre-view

By 8th Region Warrior - The Roy Winchester Gymnasium on the campus of Henry County High School has been hosting the 8th region tournament for quite sometime, I am thinking 1962-63 may have been the first year? A history guru, "Calling Colonel Mike"..... may know for sure. In that span there has been some of the best basketball that our state has ever witnessed. The coaches and players that have been a part of this region are incredible, and these teams are hoping to cement themselves into that conversation. I would go out on a limb and say that the favorite has not won this region in the last 4 years, and the... Read More →

14th Region Tournament Preview

By All State Baseball - It’s that time once again, post season in basketball. We’ve had a lot of good games throughout each region this season and the 14th region is no different. People may feel and believe that there is only one heavy favorite in Perry Central but I feel different. You have Knott Central who won the region 4 straight years going into last season, Wolfe County who only lost to Knott Central, who people think is the only team that can give the Commodores a run for the regional crown, by 5 earlier in the season. Breathitt County who only lost by 9 to Perry Central on Breathitt’s own home floor, the... Read More →

2nd Region Tournament Preview & Predictions

By WKY - Power Rankings 1. Henderson County (24-5, 9-1) Despite losing to Webster County in the 6th District championship game, the Lady Colonels are still the team to beat in this tournament. They have the best player in the region in Alisha Owens and they surround her with outstanding shooters. It will take a special game plan and a special performance, much like Webster County was able to do, to beat this team. 2. Webster County (19-12, 12-3) The Lady Trojans pulled off one of the biggest upsets in postseason play so far in the state. It was the 1st time they have won a district championship in...

My plan for getting fired

By ChiefSmoke - I like to plan for everything(Bill Walsh influence).... even "what to do if I am getting ready to get fired." In September of 2012, we had lost 7 games in a row(going back to 2011), and #7 was the ugliest of all. John Combs was a sophomore and I began to be concerned that I was not going to be able to be his coach all through high school because we were performing so poorly. So, the thought went through my mind, "If I am about to get fired, how am I going out and how do I want to be remembered?" This is what I came up with: 1- I wanted the kids to say that I never blamed them for the... Read More →


Does the Northern Kentucky Boys Basketball Coaches Assoc. need to look in the mirror?

By theguru - The NKBBCA (Northern Kentucky Boys Basketball Coaches Association) announced their all-conference team this past weekend. Coaches from Dixie, Cooper, Covington Catholic, Ryle, Boone County, Campbell County, Simon Kenton, Conner, and Scott voted. One player, Covington Catholic's top player and D1 recruit CJ Fredrick, was voted as the 8th best player among those 9 schools. I spoke to numerous NKY Basketball Experts and NKY Basketball Coaches about CJ Fredrick being ranked 8th and below are their comments: "This is an example of a group either not seeing a player enough, putting too much...

Inside the 8th region Final Edition

By 8th Region Warrior - With the regular season wrapping up, it is tourney time in the Bluegrass State. Games got under way last night, with mostly 4/5 seed play in games, however some were 1 vs. 4 seeds. Everyone likes looking forward to Wednesday games because generally that is 2 vs. 3 and in our region there are some games on slate that will send 3 of our top 6 teams home already and make someone's path a lot easier in getting to Rupp Arena. It is an absolute blast to cover this region, I do it for the kids and I hope it has been a good read for BGP. Let us not forget that there are some awful good seniors... Read More →


Inside the 12th Region Final Edition

By SHS Future - 12th Region Basketball The 2016-2017 season started on November 28th and twelve weeks later the regular season has come to an end. The post season is upon us and it’s win or go home. This season has proven that there is no true favorite in the 12th Region. Although Pulaski County has held the #1 spot for most of the year, they have shown vulnerability down the stretch. Southwestern is picking up momentum at the right time and currently sits in the top spot to end the regular season. But, don’t count out Mercer County or Lincoln County because both of those teams are capable of putting... Read More →
