8th region re-cap 2/13/17 week 11

By 8th Region Warrior - Last week of the regular season...What a ride thus far and with our region we have some great match ups in district play. Valentines day this week could mean heart break for teams heading into tournament play. Let us not overlook some games that we have this upcoming week. Most of the coaches like a challenging game this week to sharpen the saw to say, while others may like to slide into district play. My hopes are that all players stay healthy this last week, and others get healthy as we make the push for the regional tourney at the Roy. We had a wild week in the 8th region that saw...

Inside the 6th Region (02/13/2017)

By coachlee - This is an early edition of the 6th region recap, but all of the past week games are in. It was a wild week with many of the top teams losing to make this week's groupings look a little different to account for who is getting hot at the right time. Only one week in the regular season is left and most teams have a pair of games. The big question now is if Fern Creek can run the table against 6th region opponents. The only teams left in their way of an undefeated regular season in the 6th region are PRP & Moore. Both of those teams are capable of producing an upset if Fern Creek does not... Read More →

Another Tackling Drill for LBs: Tackling Rings

By ChiefSmoke - Here is another great drill from Coach Brian Rowland. The inside LBs react to their key and scrape to the ball. It is a race. The frontside LB tries to get to the frontside of the ring and the backside LB tries to get to the backside of the ring... first. It is great that we are able to practice tackling in February without pads. We need to the work and this is a safe way to get in the reps that we need. The drill also helps with taking the proper angle to the ball and eliminating a false step. Good job Coach Rowland! BlackShoes&WhiteShoeStrings: Tackling Drill with Tackling Rings:... Read More →

Inside the 1st Region - Week 10

By silo11 - Some movement taking place within the region this week. Graves solidified its position as the top team in region 1, even with the loss of Ryan Mathis. Paducah Tilghman has come on strong and really making a push for title considerations. McCracken County and Marshall are both still in the mix and Mayfield will round out the top tier of the region. Should be interesting final couple weeks and the region tournament should be filled with great games. This week pits Graves against Mayfield and Tilghman vs McCracken. 1. Graves County Eagles Overall record: 19-7 Record this week: 3-0... Read More →

Inside the 9th Region 2/7

By Walter - With two weeks left in the regular season, the district seeds have been determined and we have a pretty clear idea of who SHOULD represent each district in the region tournament. Here is where each team is ranked as of now: 1. Covington Catholic (22-4) The Colonels continue to dominate the area as they extended their win streak to 10 games with wins over Scott (82-46) and Beechwood (77-37). Aiden Ruthsatz (23 pts), Cole Vonhandorf (20 pts), and AJ Mayer (18 pts) led a balanced attack in the blowout win over Scott. In the win over Beechwood, Vonhandorf led the way with 22 points, 10...

Inside the 3rd Region(2/7)

By ApolloFan98 - Overall, it was a rough week for the 3rd Region. First, the sweet 16 draw did no favors, as the 3rd drew the 9th. Then it seemed like everyone took their lumps, some more than others. Although they still sport an impressive in region record, Apollo has started to slip against solid competition from outside the region. Owensboro and Daviess County appear to be fading. Just when it looked like Ohio County turned the corner, they suffer a lopsided defeat at home to Breck County. While the district seeding has become clear over the past week(listed below), the favorites are far from clear.... Read More →

Inside the 6th Region (02/06/2017)

By coachlee - The finish line is getting closer and each week mixes in a surprise or two just when you think you have it figured out. The one thing that remains clear is currently Fern Creek continues to hold up as the region favorite while building their record to a very impressive 24-2 on the season. Their last 4 games will match them against 6th region opponents who will all be lining up to give the Tigers their first regional loss. This week rankings will continue with the tier groupings as a way of identifying the top challengers to Fern Creek, those that have a chance to contend, and then the... Read More →

10th Region Recap and Rankings - 2/6/17

By mcpapa - As we draw near to the end of the regular season, the usual issues and questions begin to percolate. Will Mason County be able to take advantage of that nearly insurmountable home-court edge? Will this be Bracken County's year to finally capture that elusive 39th district crown? Who is poised to take the 40th district title? Is popcorn superior to bbq? Can Scott upset Campbell in the 37th? Who will capture player-of-the-year honors? For now though, we focus on the previous week and the ramp-up to the postseason. 1. Campbell County (23-2, 9-1 region). Don't look now, but the... Read More →

By SHS Future - 12th region Basketball February rolls in with the 12th Region as wide open as it has been in a few years.

Inside the 7th Region (2-6-17)

By PurplePride92 - News and Notes: In the department of not much has changed Trinity is still the top team in the 7th Region. With Jacob King back in the fold Trinity is every bit as powerful now as they were at the beginning of the season when they were without him. With four players averaging double figures in points it will not be an easy feat for any team to knock Trinity out of the postseason. Waggener has added Devin Cooper back onto their team and he is averaging around 23 points a game right now for Waggener. Waggener has gone 2-5 since Cooper has joined the team but they have lost those... Read More →

By Les - 1. Knox Central (18-5 overall, 9-2 vs. 13th Region competition) The Panthers are the real deal, and become the fourth different team int he 13th Region to claim the top spot this season. Knox Central has now won six games in a row thanks to a high-octane offense attack led by Markelle Turner and Wade Liford. The Panthers haven’t played the toughest of schedules in the 13th Region, but they’ve shown that they are the region’s best team at the present time. They do get a chance to show just how good they are with upcoming games against Clay County, Cordia and North Laurel coming up. 2.... Read More →
