In the bottom bracket, a tantalizing matchup between #2 Lexington Catholic and #3 Dunbar will send one of the State's top 20 teams packing right away.

By JokersWild24 - Teams mentioned in Guard, Forward, Center format with each position sorted alphabetically. Player of the Year: F - Matt Rose, Lexington Christian Academy I know there are some very deserving players, and feel as thought it's only right that this one goes to the senior in Rose.

Inside the 1st Region (2-17-15)

Murray is still playing good but not as well as they were. Graves is on a 4 game winning streak. The Eagles have developed depth this year and Andrew Smith has been a star. Ballard Memorial jumps up to the highest ranking all year to #5. They had a good win against Carlisle this past week. After the top 3... Read More →
