11th Region Season Recap, Awards and Championship game Preview

By Wildcatfan25 - Some Random thoughts before handing out some imaginary awards: • Would have been interested to see how good Bryan Station would have been with a healthy Dishman all season. • Impressive coaching job by Nate Valentine at LCA to have success with mostly freshmen and sophomores. If Trevor Hill and Tre King had been consistent, LCA would have had a realistic shot to make the region for the first time ever. • Disappointed with Frankfort this season. The senior heavy team failed to make the regional for another year. • I don’t think anyone realized just how bad of shape Tates Creek was... Read More →

Second Region Tournament Preview

By The Scribe - The Road to Rupp has been a one-way street between Lexington and the Eighth District over the past 15 years. Since 2001, Hopkinsville, University Heights, or Christian County has been the Second Region rep at the Sweet 16. There’s a good chance that streak extends to 16 this year. Christian County (26-2) has been the top-ranked team in the state for most of the season and hasn’t lost to a Kentucky school all season. The Colonels rolled to their first district title in six years, holding off Hopkinsville for the third time this year. Christian County opens play in the region... Read More →

Region 1 Tournament Preview

By silo11 - Graves County vs Marshall County These two teams met twice during the regular season. In the first game the Marshalls kept it close but still fell 53-48. The second meeting was all Graves as they soundly defeated Marshall 60-35. This game should probably be more like the fist than the second. Graves is definitely the favorite in this game and should win, but Marshall County is a scrappy team that plays very hard. They have been in most of their games this season and if they can stick around they can pull the upset. Graves has been prone to an upset as was proved earlier this year... Read More →

By GoHardITP - All 1st round games played Tuesday Bullitt East (25-5) at North Bullitt (23-6), 7 p.m- Their only previous game this season was held 3 weeks ago which Bullitt East won at home 80-71. This game is held at North with their 23rd district victory and the upset loss suffered by Bullitt East. How Bullitt East responds to that loss will dictate what happens in this game. North Bullitt will not resemble Fern Creek in any way who gave Bullitt East trouble with their defense and rebounding. North Bullitt will need to out rebound the taller BE team if they have a chance.
