Week Five Review:

Webster County is the only undefeated team (ky competition) left in Region 2 and Madisonville suffered its first losing streak, while playing one of the toughest schedule in the Commenwealth. Livingston Central and Hopkins County Central continue to remain winless. Lyon County and Union County were dealt considerable upsets, while Christian County starts to separate themselves from their district 8 foes. Here are the week 5 rankings:

1. Madisonville North Hopkins BGP #6
Season record: 11-3

The Maroons lost both of their games this week against higher ranked opponents. The first loss was to BGP#5 Lexington Catholic in the Traditional Bank Holiday Classic Championship Game at Lexington Catholic. The game went into overtime, but Madisonville still fell short 67-65. The second loss was much more concerning, a 72-58 loss to BGP#2 John Hardin. This is the largest margin of loss for the Maroons since December of last season.
They will finally get a home game December 7 against Hopkinsville, before heading away from home for 5 games, including a big game versus Male on Jan 11. The Maroons have only played 2 home games this season so far.

2. Webster County
Season Record: 12-1

Webster County won both their games this week including a 66-45 win against Bartram Trail (FL) in Panama City Beach, and a 77-47 win against Hopkins County Central. The Trojans will play Crittenden County and Calloway County this week. Calloway County could cause some problems for the Trojans, however they should be able to pull it out.

3. Christian County
Season Record: 6-8

Christian County won two of three games this week all against Region 1 foes. The Colonels were able to defeat both Calloway County and Graves County, and only lost to Paducah Tilghman by 3 points. They will play University Heights, Paducah Tilghman in a rematch, and Madison Central, all at home this week.

4. Henderson County
Season Record: 8-7

Henderson split 4 games this week, defeating both Crittenden County and Thomas Nelson significantly, however Lafayette and Central both handled the Colonels easily. The up and down season continues for Henderson. They hope to balance the ship this week with games against Evansville Harrison (IN) and Muhlenberg County.

5. Hopkinsville
Season Record: 7-7

Hopkinsville split their games this week against Fort Campbell and Bardstown, both home games. The Tigers won 61-48 versus Ft. Campbell, but lost 79-67 against Bardstown. Hoptown is struggling to find consistent scoring threats as only one player is averaging more than 10 ppg. Tough game against Madisonville on Tuesday, before heading over the University Heights on Friday.

6. Lyon County
Season Record: 8-6

The Lyons reversed their fortune this week, losing to both Crittenden County and Marshall County big. The 73-45 loss to Crittenden is confusing considering Lyon County beat Crittenden by 19 points earlier this season. Regardless, the Lyons will play Livingston Central and Hopkinsville this week. They can get their season back on track with wins against both.

7. Union County
Season Record: 6-7

Union got the smackdown in two games this week. BGP #8 Ashland soundly defeated the Braves 84-49, and Lewis County snapped an 8 game losing streak and defeated them 69-49 in an upset. Not sure what is going on with Union, but those scores seem problematic. They will try and right things in the Kentucky 2A Championship Sectional Tournaments where their opponents are still To Be Announced.

8. University Heights
Season Record:5-8

The Blazers lost the only game they played this week, which was in the Mustang Madness in Paducah. UHA lost 65-60 to Paducah Tilghman in a close game. They will play both crosstown rivals this week going to Christian County and hosting Hopkinsville.

9. Crittenden County
Season Record: 7-7

Crittenden lost two of three this week, but the one game they did win, was a big win. The Rockets lost big to BGP #9 McCracken County 76-43, and to Henderson County 81-66. However they pulled a big upset on Lyon County winning 73-45 at home, a great rebound from a 19 point loss to the Lyons in mid December. They will face off with Webster County and Trigg County this week. Do they have another upset in their future?

10. Caldwell County
Season Record: 5-7

The Tigers were able to win their sole game this week against Carlisle County 63-57. They will play Hopkins County Central before hosting Madisonville on Friday.

11. Trigg County
Season Record: 5-7

The Wildcats defeated Livingston Central by 19 points, 66-47. Four players scored in double digits in the victory. They will play Hopkins County Central and Crittenden County this week.

12. Dawson Springs
Season Record: 4-7

The Panthers split their two games this week. They defeated Evansville Christian 71-64 and lost to Apollo 75-45. They will play Fort Campbell and Madisonville this week.

13. Fort Campbell
Season Record: 5-7

Fort Campbell lost both their games this week, extending their losing streak to 6 games. They scored 48 points in both losses to Hopkinsville and Portland TN They will faceoff against Dawson Springs and Hopkins County Central this week.

14. Hopkins County Central
Season Record: 0-11

Hopkins County Central lost their 11th game of the season continuing their winless streak. They have opportunities this week against Caldwell County, Fort Campbell, and Trigg County. Could be their best chance to end the streak.

The Cardinals losing streak continues as well with a 47-66 loss to Trigg County. They will play St. Mary and Lyon County this week.
