1st Region District/Region Preview

By silo11 - Now the regular season has finished, we are ready for district and region tournaments. In the preseason, Graves County was a top the rankings.

Now they must take care of business in the district tournaments so they can meet each other at Murray State’s CSB Center. The prize for the region 1 winner at Rupp in the Sweet Sixteen, most likely Bowling Green…ugh. Gotta hate that draw, (McCracken lost the BG by 32 points in the regular season and... Read More →

2nd Region District Tournaments Preview & Predictions

By WKY - 5th District Tournament @ Trigg County 2/20 6:00 PM #2 Lyon County (18-9) vs. #4 Trigg County (6-19) The Lady Lyons have put together a nice record considering what they graduated last year. They are still a tough defensive team in the half court and still shoot the ball well. The Lady Cats have had to endure yet another rebuilding season, only capturing region wins against Fort Campbell. Their first 2 matchups saw Lyon County walk away victorious by double digits. I would expect more of the same in this matchup. Lyon County by 10-15 points. 2/20 7:30 PM #1 Crittenden County (23-7) vs.... Read More →

Inside the 3rd Region (2/13)

By ApolloFan98 - As we head into the final week of the regular season, there is a shake up at the top of the standings. Up to this point, it appears that Catholic, Hancock and Apollo are all playing some of their best basketball of the season. There isn't much separating the 3 at the top. Ohio County and Muhlenberg County are two teams that can beat anyone on any given night. Owensboro has proven to be a thorn in the side of Catholic this season, and play them in an elimination game in the 9th district tournament. A win there could set the Devils up for a run through the tourney. Daviess County is... Read More →
