1st Region Tournament Preview

By silo11 - Region 1 Tournament Preview – Murray State University At the beginning of the year all the hype was about two teams and two players. Zion Harmon with Marshall County and Jackson Sivills with McCracken County. It seemed that Marshall would be the favorite this season because they were going to have the one of the best players in the state and were playing a national schedule against some of the best teams in the country. Reality set in quickly that they were not ready for that type of schedule and McCracken defeating them on their on court. When they finally met a second time, Marshall... Read More →

2nd Region Tournament Preview

By silo11 - Region 2 Preview: Region 2 has been about one particular team the entire season, Madisonville-North Central. They did not lose a single game in the region and were ranked in the BGP top 10 the whole year. That is not to say a few teams gave them a scare during the year. Henderson County played them to an 8 point game and Lyon County played them to a 7 point game, the closest score for them in the region. The tournament will no doubt be theirs to lose, and they have been playing extremely well over the past month. In fact they haven’t had a close game since the 7 point win at Lyon... Read More →

3rd Region Tournament Preview

By ApolloFan98 - Team Rankings... 1. Owensboro Red Devils (19-10) If Owensboro continues to play the way they have over the past few weeks, they will be going to Rupp Arena. Baring a night of a barriage of 3 pointers, it's hard to see a scenario where they loose in this tournament. Freshman PG Kenyatta Carbon has really turned the corner and has become a star late in the season. Mix him with junior big man Gavin Wimsatt and junior slasher, Amari Robinson Wales and the Devils look primed for a back to back title run. 6th man and spark plug Jaiden Greathouse leads the Devils in scoring and won the 9th...

Sixth Region Tournament Preview

By Smallhoops - While there seemed to be a lot of parity in the Sixth Region this season, here we are heading into the Sixth Region tournament and the Fern Creek Tigers are 14-0 against Sixth Region competition this season. While perhaps the Tigers have separated themselves from the competition, the post season is a new season, and none of the other participants are ready to hand the trophy to the Tigers.

16th Region Week 12 Review and Post Season Preview

By zebraman - The real tournament starts!! Regular season is out of the way now the real fun starts. 1) Ashland (Season: 28-0 This week: 2-0) Ashland finished the regular season flawless. According to local historians, this is the first time it has happened in the 16th region since the 1920’s. Ashland has certainly exceeded expectations. When watching them live, what I was most impressed with is the collective vision on the court and their ball movement. Opposing teams seems to spend a lot of time trying to “catch-up to the ball” this allows for many uncontested shots. The Tomcats finished... Read More →
