By Getslow - Ranking the Teams 1. Trinity – In a year in which the Shamrocks were the Commonwealth’s top-ranked team for nearly the entire season, compiling a 31-6 record and winning the school’s third Seventh Region title, Trinity fell just short of their championship aspirations in a state semifinal loss to Scott County. The Shamrocks enter the 2014-15 season once again loaded for bear and the overwhelming favorite to win the Seventh Region and be among the top contenders for a state title. The Shamrocks will have to start by replacing the 10 ppg they lose from graduating point guard Trey Ivory... Read More →

By ElmerT - 3rd Region Boys Basketball Preview 1. OWENSBORO - Coach Rod Drake returns almost everyone from last year’s 3rd Region Championship team. 6’9” senior Aric Holman, who holds scholarship offers from some of the top universities in the nation, returns with an improved low post game to go along with his excellent top of the key jumper and intimidating shot blocking, making him one of the premier inside-outside players in the state. 6’5” senior Justin Miller will continue to be very tough to handle on the block and will be a match-up problem for just about any high school team in the...

By SHS Future - 2014-15 Kentucky High School Preview - 12th Region “Three-Peat” is the word everyone in Wayne County wants to be saying come Mid-March 2015. But, Three-Peat is a word heard very rarely in 12th region basketball when referring to region champions. As a matter of fact, the last team to be able to say the word “Three-Peat” was the 1960 Monticello Trojans after winning the region in 1958, 1959, and 1960. Well, the Cardinals want to once again be saying “Three-Peat” in Wayne County this year by matching their former cross town foes’ three consecutive 12th Region titles. But, to claim that...

2014-2015 Kentucky High School Basketball Preview - 4th Region

By DragonFire - Annually we open this first part of the 4th Region preview by waxing poetic about the dominance of the 14th District over the region. Last year everyone in Bowling Green loaded up and drove 45 minutes to Barren County High to watch Bowling Green knock off Warren Central in an all-14th District region final, the eight all-14th District final in the 13 straight seasons that district has won the title.

Plus the advantage of the region at MSU right in their backyard. 2. Boyd County - The Lions have steadily improved under Coach Randy Anderson and this season could be their year. Bobby Anderson, son of Randy, is jet quick and very experienced. Conner Guaze is a talented post... Read More →

2014-15 Kentucky High School Basketball Preview - 10th Region

By Randy Parker - 10TH REGION: OVERVIEW Campbell County turned back Montgomery County's attempt to repeat as Regional Champions in 2013-14. The Camels, who had to come from behind to defeat Scott just to qualify for the Regional Tournament, rode their three-headed monster of Corey Holbrook, Matt Wilson, and Dre Jackson to earn the 4th Sweet 16 trip in school history, and the first since 2001. One-third of the Camels' trio (Holbrook) has graduated, but Wilson and Jackson return as the 10th's top 2 players.
