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 →

5th Region Week 11 Review: Teams Gearing Up For Postseason

By Sportslover32 - 1. John Hardin (28-0): The Bulldogs did this week what they have done all year which is win as they won all three games this week. They beat Bardstown on the road 83-63, they beat district foe North Hardin 58-51 on the road and beat Nelson County 86-61 on the road. John Hardin took care of business this week and did everything they was supposed to do. They are ranked second in the state in a lot of polls which is the highest they have ever been in programs history. In the win over Bardstown Aaron Scott led the team with 20 points. 2. Larue County (21-4): The Hawks played three games this... Read More →

1st Region Week 11 Review

By silo11 - There are three teams that look like they have a strong chance to win the Region 1 tournament. McCracken County, Mayfield, and Graves County have shown that they have what it takes to win it. All three teams have played at a high level during the year and will need their best to win. There are some teams that can throw a wrench into any of those teams dreams so it will not be a cake walk to get to that finals game. For now, here is this weeks rankings: 1. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower BGP #9 2018-19 record: 25-3 Week’s Record: 3-0 The Mustangs continue their impressive... Read More →

12th Region Week 11 Review: Regular Season Winding Down

By TDC - The final week of the regular season is upon us, and the 12th Region has lived up to the preseason billing of being wide open and having several teams with legitimate shots at taking the Region crown. Despite each enduring a down week where they looked imminently beatable, both Danville and Wayne County have demonstrated the most consistent performance and currently deserve to be considered Region tournament co-favorites. District play comes first, of course, and the Cardinals have a much easier path (they’re already in) to the Region Tournament than the Admirals, who will have to survive a... Read More →

2nd Region Week 11 Review

By silo11 - University Heights and Madisonville-North Hopkins continue to show they are the class of Region 2. As the season finishes up this week, the Blazers and Maroons have dominated the entire 2nd region and the only time they played each other, it took everything out of both teams and a last second shot for UHA to come away with the one point victory. Hopkinsville and Christian may have a chance to make some noise, but it is slim at best. This season it will come down to two teams. History is on UHA’s side as District 8 has one 16 straight region 2 titles. Here are the rankings for this week.... Read More →

16th Region Week 11 Review: Elliott County Remains On Top

By Carson Palmer - Believe it or not we have reached the final week of the regular season. Elliott County remains unblemished in regional play as the potential contenders continue to topple each other on a weekly basis. Rowan County took two losses this past week while Boyd County and East Carter saw winning streaks snapped as well. Lewis County has reeled off six straight wins to position themselves as contenders in March. Here is a look at this week's ratings: 1. ELLIOTT COUNTY (20-3) The Lions were challenged by both Morgan County and Boyd County and once again responded in typical Elliott County fashion.... Read More →

14th Region Week 11 Review: Movement Among Us

By All State Baseball - It's been another outstanding year for Kentucky high school basketball. We have one final week left in the regular season before we head to the main season. 1) Knott County Central (20-8): 93-50 W over June Buchanan, 93-66 W over Cordia, 58-51 L to George Rogers Clark. This week: 2/14 (Thurs) at Knox Central. Previous Rank: #1 The Patriots went 2 out of 3 this past week, picking up wins over two district foes, June Buchanan 93-50 and Corida 93-66. The Patriots suffered a not so bad loss to one of the states best in George Rogers Clark, 58-51. The Patriots will have one final... Read More →

3rd Region Week 11 Review - Final Week

By ApolloFan98 - With one week left in the regular season, Owensboro is the clear cut #1 in the region. Their 3rd win of the season over Owensboro Catholic moved them to 7-0 vs 9th district teams and 12-0 against 3rd region competition. Breckenridge County has bounced back from their 2 point home loss to the Devils and have since won 4 straight. Once you get out of the top 3 teams in this region, you can really throw a blanket over the rest of the region. Everyone is beating everyone and there is to much inconsistency to nail down an exact rankings. This week, I just threw records out the window and went... Read More →

4th Region Week 11 Review

By DragonFire - Getting down to the nitty gritty.... 1) Bowling Green (21-5) - 2/4 73-52 W at #9 Barren County, 2/5 65-73 L Owensboro, 2/8 84-50 W at #12 Warren East Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 2/12 vs. #16 Russellville, 2/15 at Hopkinsville The record is still stellar, but as described previously, the Purples have undergone some growing pains of late. The Purples are down to two seniors on the team with the dismissals of Davion Dice in January and now Trevor Dennis earlier this week. Dennis had averaged in double digits for the Purples, but has been a non-factor since mid-January. The cracks... Read More →

Intra-District Playoffs - Great work Commissioner Tackett

By theguru - I can tell from reading BGP most of you disagree with my sentiment here and stance on Commissioner Tackett and I think you are all wrong. I believe he is the 'adult in the room' and he did great work here. I believe the vast majority of us Kentucky High School Football fans agree too many teams get in the playoffs in each class. Additionally, we fans are all over the place on the number of classes we should have in Kentucky but six is certainly at the extreme high end in a state with only 222 schools playing football. Doing some "simple math" here, when you combine too many teams... Read More →

8th Region Week 10 in Review - Oh My Gosh

By ColonelMike - 8th Region Week 10 Review: Oh My Gosh Have you ever heard of “diagnosis by exception”? This term is used to describe situations where doctors have to diagnose an illness or condition by methodically eliminating numerous other diagnoses, each more likely than the actual diagnosis. Eventually, after multiple labs, imaging, and tests, the doctors eliminate all the likely diagnoses and land upon the correct diagnosis. This year, that looks like how we’re going to ultimately choose the 8th region favorite. And I have a feeling, with just two weeks left in the regular season, that we... Read More →

2nd Region Week 10 Review

By silo11 - Biggest game this past week in region 2 was between Hopkinsville and Christian County. This was the first year in quite some time that this game wasn’t for who would be the number one seed in District 8 and a favorite to win region 2. This year, the second seed is up for grabs and neither are favored to go to Rupp Arena. Madisonville and UHA both still look to be on a collision for the Region 2 title Here are this week’s rankings: 1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse BGP#5 2018-19 record: 22-4 Week’s Record: 1-1 All “A” Classic Champions University Heights played... Read More →

10th Region Week 10 in Review - Rounding the Corner and Heading for Home

By mcpapa - The weather reared its ugly head last week, causing a few cancellations with not enough time in the season for rescheduling. Our number one still holds the top spot; and not a lot has changed from top to bottom. 1. Campbell County (18-4, 9-0 region, 3-0 37th District). Campbell has now won 10 of 11; the only hiccup being a road loss at Walton-Verona. In fact, the Camels have lost three in-state games by a total of just nine points. Two of last week's three contests were cakewalks - a 32-point thumping of Harrison County and a 62-point demolition of Bracken County at home. Reid Jolly... Read More →
