5th Region Week 10 Review: Bulldogs Dominate 4th Region Favorite

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (25-0): The Bulldogs historic season continues as they won both games again this week. They beat district foe Elizabethtown 76-74 on the road in a dandy, and beat Bowling Green 86-59 at home. Bulldogs survived another scare as the Etown game came down to the wire but like every time this season they found a way.

12th Region Week 10 Review: The Gap is Closing

By TDC - Week 10 reminded us of just how wide open the 12th Region is. While Danville and Wayne County continue to maintain a consistent hold on the top two spots, teams from #3 to #12 have defeated teams ahead of them in the rankings and most have shown the potential to beat either one of the top two on any given night. The gap between the top two teams and the next ten teams below them seems to be closing. Despite it being a weekly statement, it bears repeating: the 45th District Tournament is going to be epic. It is also going to end two good team’s seasons early. Top 12 teams who are … ... Read More →


14th Region Week 10 Review: 1-5 Stays The Same But Some Changes 6-16.

By All State Baseball - It's the start of February, which means that post season play/district tournaments are about two weeks away. This means we only have about a month or so left of high school basketball for the 2018/19 season. We had lots of excitement this week throughout the state and 14th region but the top 10 remained the same. 1) Knott County Central (18-7): 1/30 79-61 W at June Buchanan, 2/1 51-47 W at #3 Perry County Central, 2/2 102-80 W at #8 Wolfe County. This week: 2/4 (Mon) vs. #14 June Buchanan, 2/7 (Thurs) vs. George Rogers Clark, 2/9 (Sat) vs. Western Hills. Previous Rank: #1 The... Read More →


4th Region Week 10 Review

By DragonFire - 1) Bowling Green (19-4) - 1/29 47-43 W #10 South Warren, 2/1 59-86 L at John Hardin Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 2/4 at #9 Barren County, 2/5 vs. Owensboro, 2/8 at #12 Warren East Bowling Green had a phenomenal week in Week 9 despite suffering through some personnel turmoil. This week.... they'd likely just as soon forget other than trying to take some lessons. First was a district game against South Warren that they had to have. The Spartans controlled the pace and simply would not go away. BG led by 12 at one point, but South ran them all the way down at 42 all before the Purples... Read More →

10th Region Week 9 Review - Lots of Movement After the Top 2

By mcpapa - There are only three weeks left in the regular season, and other than our top two squads, nothing seems to have settled into any kind of pattern. Last week was, however, a week that saw a couple of the 10th's smaller schools shine on different fronts. 1. Campbell County (15-4, 6-0 region, 2-0 37th District). The much anticipated game against Covington Catholic didn't take place, so the Camels had to settle for thumping St. Henry and Paris on consecutive days. Reid Jolly and Drew Wilson scored 23 and 19 as the squad made nearly 70% of their field goals against the Crusaders; and Jolly... Read More →


14th Region Week 9 Review: Everything Stays The Same

By All State Baseball - Mother nature finally showed up and does what she always does, cancelling games. Because of that, the games that got played wouldn't make any difference in the rankings this week. 1) Knott County Central (15-7): The Patriots had a good week but a not so good week if that makes any sense? The Patriots picked up two wins and extended their win streak to 10 straight games. Those wins came by defeating Letcher County Central 60-43 and Middlesboro 57-45 in the all a state tournament. The Patriots had took an earlier season defeat at Middlesboro, losing 45-40. The Patriots loss last week came in... Read More →

5th Region Week 9 Review: Bruins Show They Are A Contender

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (23-0): The Bulldogs did what they did all year this week by continuing to do nothing but win as they won both games this week. They beat district opponent Fort Knox 90-25 on the road and beat Scott 72-69 at home. This was the second game against Scott and like the first one Bulldogs was down a lot of the game, but this squad continues to find a way to win. John Hardin has won so many close games which shows they know how to win. In the blowout win over Fort Knox Aaron Scott led the team with 17 points. 2. Central Hardin (14-6): The Bruins had a great week winning both games... Read More →


13th Region Week 9 Review

By Les - 1. South Laurel (21-2 overall, 13-0 vs. 13th Region opponents) The Cardinals are winners of five straight, and remain the only team in the 13th Region to be unbeaten against regional teams. South Laurel picked up a big 21-point win at home against Corbin before surviving a scare at home against Middlesboro before winning, 70-62. The trio of JJ Ramey, Matt Cromer and Brett Norvell have been hard to contain as of late while the play of Matthew Dalton, Micah Anders and Alex Hostettler has been key to the Cardinals’ success, too. 2. Corbin (14-5, 9-4) The power ratings might not have the... Read More →

16th Region Week 9 Review: Is Elliott coming back to the Field?

By Carson Palmer - This past week may have provided some hope for the teams chasing Elliott County for the 16th Region crown. The Lions survived at Morgan County and then lost 69-54 to Danville in the state All A Classic. Is it just the ordinary January grind taking a toll or could someone make this region a lot more interesting? This week is HUGE in the 62nd District seeding as Morgan County, East Carter, and West Carter battle it out for the 2-4 seed in this ultra-competitive district. Let's take a look at this week's rankings. 1. ELLIOTT COUNTY (16-3) The Lions needed some late free throws from senior... Read More →


9th Region Week 9 Review: Movement in the middle of the pack as seeding tightens up.

By PP1 - The top four teams are the same as last week. There is a lot of movement between teams 8-18. District Tournament week is only about three and a half weeks away and it is looking to be exciting. Beechwood has the chance to move up if they can defend their home against Covington Catholic on Friday. The 35th District may have gotten more competitive as Holmes seems to be playing better. The 34th District is also looking to be more competitive as Dixie Heights is gaining some momentum. Even with the weak record, Dixie has the athletes to beat both St. Henry and Lloyd Memorial. Lloyd has a... Read More →
