2nd Region Week 11 Review
Week Eleven Review:
Madisonville-North Hopkins is a monster and they seem to be clicking on all cylinders. They are without a doubt a top 10 team in the state with a legit shot at winning it all. Henderson County has overtaken Webster as the number 2 team and Lyon County is making a case for being the number 3 team, but they are not quite there yet. Here are the week 11 rankings:
1. Madisonville North Hopkins – BGP #7
Season record: 24-3
Madisonville-North Hopkins had a very convincing win over University Heights, winning 73-58. They have two more games left in the regular season, both at home. First versus Apollo and then Ohio County. The Maroons have consistently stayed in the top 10 in the BGP rankings all season and have shown they are a legit contender for the state title. Kenny White won the region 2 Player of the Year award and will have an opportunity to win Mr. Basketball, although he isn’t a favorite.
2. Henderson County
Season Record: 17-10
Henderson County has definitely found their groove and they have overtaken Webster County for the #2 ranking in the region. They defeated Webster for a second time in two weeks. This time they won 73-65. They also defeated Apollo. The Colonels have three games left in the regular season, at home versus Hancock County and Hopkinsville, and then at Owensboro.
3. Webster County
Season Record: 19-5
Webster County lost their only game they played this week, but it was a big loss. The Trojans lost to Henderson County for the second time this season and in the process forfeited the second place ranking in the region. This was a spot they have held onto for quite some time. They will have a chance to rebound as they finish the season against Trinity (Whitesville), University Heights, and Union County.
4. University Heights
The Blazers won 2 of 3 this week, defeating Christian County in a close game and Fort Campbell in an easy game. They were overmatched once again in their game against Madisonville-North Hopkins. The Blazers still have four games on their schedule, all away: Owensboro Catholic, Caldwell County, Webster County, and Fort Campbell.
5. Lyon County
