Top Games this weekend:

 

Tuesday:

 

Cape Central @ McCracken County

Paducah Tilghman @ Marshall County, the last time these 2 met the Marshall were embarrassed with a loss in the finals of the Tilghman tournament. It was a running clock in the 2nd half.

 

 

Ballard Memorial @ Mayfield- battle of two district teams and two All A teams looking to make noise next week in the regional tournament. Ballard beat Mayfield big in a holiday tournament but Mayfield played without leading scorer Marshall Bacon.

 

 

Thursday:

 

Fulton City @ Hickman County: two teams that are struggling but this game has district implications. Both teams would like to avoid Carlisle County who is hosting the District this year.

 

 

Friday:

 

Calloway County vs. Murray: Murray looks to unseat the Lakers as the top seed in the district. Both teams stand 1-0 so far. The Tigers look to be the best team to knock off the Lakers in the region this year. Depth could play a big part. The Lakers typically only play 6-7 players where Murray plays 10-12. If the game is called tight it would favor the deeper Tigers.

 

 

Carlisle County @ Fulton County, A big District game that could go a long way in decided the #1 seed. Comets are 2-1 in district play and the Pilots are 1-1.

 

 

Marshall County @ Graves County, These 2 schools have a nice rivalry and this game should be no exception. The Eagles have been playing better of late. The Marshalls struggled early in the year but seem to be playing better.

 

 

Paducah Tilghman @ McCracken County, another district match-up that will help decide the #1 seed.

 

 

Saturday:

 

Graves County @ Webster County: a tough road match-up for the Eagles. Webster is 14-1 going into this week.
