12th Region: District Tournament Previews and Predictions

By TDC - District-by-District Preview and Predictions 45th District: Why Danville will win– Depth, athleticism and defense, they were 6-0 in the District giving them a possible mental edge over the District opponents. Sophomore Guard Dante Hayden has NBA range, opening up driving lanes for Thornton and post scoring opportunities for St. Martin and Wood. Quite simply, they have the best overall roster of players and should be the favorite to win both the 45th District and 12th Region Tournaments. Why Danville will lose – Stretches of poor shot selection sometimes show up under pressure, and they... Read More →

Campbell County (22-4, 10-0 region, 3-0 37th District).

9th Region Week 11 Review: Can't wait till next week!!!!

By PP1 - Folks, it’s been a fun ride. I have come to the realization that after week 9, I have run out of interesting stories to talk about. I also secretly loathe the final week of the regular season because everyone is hyped up for the district tournament and every time I go to a gym I am sitting through a senior night ceremony. There was not a lot of drama last week. The biggest news was St. Henry giving a loss to the Newport Wildcats at Newport. As far as games this week, Beechwood playing at Highlands should be a good one and Cov-Cath travels to Simon Kenton on Tuesday. The top 7 spots... Read More →

7th Region Week 11 Review - Trinity strong, Waggener not losing, Male maybe the best

By Smallhoops - While the Seventh Region tournament has been dominated by Trinity and Ballard the past several years, things look to be different this year. Trinity and Ballard certainly are contenders once again, but teams like Waggener, which already has won more games than any other Waggener team in history, and Male, which beat both Trinity and Ballard in a 7-day span, are also serious contenders. Seneca, Central and St. X cannot be written off. It is going to be a good Seventh Region tournament. But we have both another week of the regular season and district tournament week before we get there. ... Read More →

13th Region Week 11 Review

By Les - 1. South Laurel (24-2 overall, 15-0 vs. 13th Region competition) The Cardinals are winners of eight in a row and 23 of their last 24 games. Coach Jeff Davis has dine a fantastic job with this year’s team, and has South Laurel in a fine position to capture another 13th Region championship. Players such as JJ Ramey, Matt Cromer and Brett Norvell have been solid contributors the entire season, but Micah Anders, Alex Hostettler, Landon Wombles and Peyton Parker have been stepping up as well. 2. Knox Central (23-4, 8-2) Just a few weeks ago, many were ready to write off the Panthers. Knox... Read More →

8th Region Week 11 Review - Chaos to the End

By ColonelMike - 8th Region Week 11 Review – Chaos to the End As the result of a crazy week that actually seemed to clear a few things up (a little), the rankings are going to see their biggest upheaval of the season this week. #1 remains #1, but a whopping 12 of 17 teams moved at least one spot this week, with Simon Kenton and Carroll County each making the biggest moves as each tumbled three spots. The rankings could yet turn out to be as bogus as a $3 bill, but they should serve as fodder for plenty of debate. (Just remember, reasonable people can disagree!) I can’t tell you how long I debated... Read More →
