By SHS Future - 2017-2018 12th Region Weekly Updates It was a great week of basketball last week as records were broken and some teams are getting off to the best start they have had in a few years. Pulaski County is hanging firm at the top of the rankings but there was still some movement due to district competition getting underway. Take a look at this week's 12th Region rankings. 12th Region Rankings: 1) Pulaski County Maroons (3-1) – The Maroons went undefeated last week but the talk of the town was Stephen Fitzgerald. He set a Pulaski County single game scoring record with 54 points in the... Read More → 3rd Region Rankings 12/18/17

By ApolloFan98 - Early in the season, it looks like the 9th district is the class of the 3rd Region. At least as of right now, their is a major drop off after the top 3 teams in Daviess County, Owensboro Catholic and Owensboro. The Devils may have the highest of any team in the region, as they turned a lot of heads state wide with a big win over Christian County this past week. It will be interesting to see if anyone outside the city can compete with the teams from Owensboro. 1.Daviess County Panthers (6-1) – UP 1 - DC moves into the top spot this week after their huge win over Owensboro Catholic on...

By 24Bricks - 16th Region Basketball Week 3 Things in the 16th Region still aren’t becoming any clearer. Ashland is looking strong in the region going into a match up with George Roger’s Clark. Boyd County suffered a lose against Louisville Ballard but played a decent game and bounced back the next day with a win. Lewis and Morgan are playing well within the region, but the remainder of the region is a toss-up. Any given night could mean a win or a loss to any other team. The upcoming week brings holiday showcases, with mostly local matchups. 1. Ashland (7-0) – Ashland went 3-0, again... Read More → Inside the 14th Region Week 3 Re-Cap

By All State Baseball - 1. Knott County Central (5-1): The Patriots continue rolling and piling up the wins. Knott Central didn’t have a problem getting past district foe, Cordia as they routed the Lions 83-65. The Patriots would pick up another win on Saturday as they defeated 15th region’s Belfry 52-49 in the Buffalo Wild Wings Shootout at Pike County Central. Knott Central travels to Breathitt County on Tuesday, hosts Letcher Central on Wednesday and will participate in the KY Bank Challenge at Rowan County this weekend where they will face Louisville Central on Friday. 2. Perry County Central (3-3):... Read More → 5th Region Weekly Rankings (12/17/17)

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (6-0): John continued its winning ways, by winning both district games this week. They blew out Central Hardin 93-69, and beat North Hardin at North in their first close game of the year, 55-51. John has shown they are the class of the 5th region, so far this year. Pearson and Wright have been great, but Alex Matthews has been a pleasant surprise, as he had 20 and 15 vs Central. He has provided great rebounding for John for an already big team. 2. Larue County (6-0): Larue, like John, is still undefeated this year, and they blew out two teams this week. They beat Edmonson at... Read More →'s Seventh Region update and rankings - 12/18/17

By Smallhoops - Three weeks into the season and we are down to two unbeaten teams in the Seventh Region, the Trinity Shamrocks and the Waggener Wildcats. Both face big challenges this week, with Trinity playing in the ultra-competitive King of the Bluegrass tournament and Waggener facing Scott County and George Rogers Clark (and Covington Holmes). Conversely, there now are no winless teams remaining in the Seventh Region. Seneca and Central were the last to get on the victory train, and they did so in impressive and exciting fashion this week, with Seneca beating St. X in overtime and Central beating... Read More →

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

By Les - 1. (tie) Knox Central (7-1 overall, 0-0 vs. 13th Region competition) The Panthers got off to their best start in more than 20 years after beating Johnson Central Friday, 77-69, but suffered their first loss of the season to West Virginia’s George Washington High School on Saturday, losing, 74-65. Senior guard Markelle Turner led the way with 27 points. With both Knox Central and Corbin being so close, I’ve gotta leave both of them tied atop the rankings. I’m thinking next week’s Cumberland Falls Invitational will show who the best team is. 1. (tie) Corbin (5-1, 3-0) The Redhounds had a... Read More → 6th Region Weekly Rankings (12/18)

By coachlee - 1. Fern Creek (6-1): After the Trinity loss, Fern Creek went back to business with 2 wins in local games (Whitefield & Male) and one very significant win at the Ramey Showdown Showcase in St. Louis versus the #1 ranked team in Missouri, Webster Groves. Fern Creek entered the contest with their three top players fighting nagging ailments. Ahmad Price has a bad thumb on his shooting hand, Anthony Wales had been battling the flu bug most of the week, and Clint Wickliffe has a banged up shoulder. Wickliffe did not play, but Wales bounced back with 24 and Price added 15 in the upset of Webster... Read More →

2nd Region Team Rankings 12/17/17

By WKY - Through the first 3 weeks of the season it has become clear that the region will indeed be a 4 horse race, maybe fewer. We are still waiting for our first power matchup of the season between the big 4, but there has been a lot of action in the middle of the pack that made ranking teams 5-9 very tough. Rank (Preseason Rank) Team (Overall Record, Region Record) 1 (1) Christian County (8-2, 3-0) - The Lady Colonels continue to blow past region competition and their only 2 losses have been by a combined 6 points. 6-3 center Trinitee Jackson is playing to her potential and that is a scary...

Inside the 4th Region (12/16/17)

By DragonFire - 1) Warren Central (7-0) - 12/11 72-49 W #5 Glasgow, 12/12 85-57 W #9 Logan County, 12/14 73-50 W at #11 Franklin-Simpson Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 12/21 vs. Jeffersontown (at Oldham County), 12/22 vs. TBA (at Oldham County), 12/23 vs. TBA (at Oldham County) The Dragons are out to their first 7-0 start in 16 years, completing a stretch that saw them win four games in six days, including their first three region games of the year. Skyelar Potter has stayed hot, scoring above 20 points in every game this year and posting a double-double in every game. Micale Mee averaged almost 15... Read More → 2nd Region Week 2 Review

By silo11 - It has been a long time since Region 2 has been this volatile and unpredictable. The top 3 teams are still from District 8, but none of the 3 have shown they are head and heels better than anyone else, and none are top 25 teams in the state, despite the current BGP rankings (those will change). Hopkinsville have lost their top 3 players, otherwise it would be a different story. Christian County has a superstar in D.Ware, but if he is shut down, they will probably lose. UHA is much of the same story, huge superstar in KyKy Tandy, but if he is contained, what do they have. The surprise... Read More →

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 15th Region - Overview: Top rated Pikeville opened the season, Floyd Central had a strong showing at the WYMT Classic, and Johnson Central faced tough times in the 13th region with a young squad in week two. No major surprises in the 15th Region as we quickly approach full holiday tournament mode. Let’s see how the rankings have changed after two weeks of play. Rankings after two weeks of play: 1.
