9th Region Week 10 Review: Things are pretty settled.

By PP1 - Regional Rankings 1. Covington Catholic (22-4): The Colonels beat Boone County and Beechwood last week. I have not seen them play in person but have watched the games via the YouTube channel on three occasions. The boys in blue are a very good team. I do not think that they are unbeatable though. I predicted earlier that they would lose to a NKY team this year. I think it will not happen. 2. Conner (17-5): Conner may run the table to the regional tournament. The Cougars are very hard to guard. 3. St. Henry (19-3): St. Henry has four tough opponents before the district tournament. The... Read More →

11th Region Week 10 Review

By mooremiller31 - The weather and sickness ruled the week in the 11th Region as some big time district matchups had to be moved due to illness and schools being closed in Fayette County. However the games that were played this week and weekend have helped to paint the picture of how this region will play out. It has become clear that at this point it is a 2 team race to Rupp Arena and baring some sort of unforeseen circumstances the Knights or the Blue Devils should represent the Region this season. As I said last week I am convinced you could throw around 10 teams in a hat and rank the 3-13 spots in this... Read More →

16th Region Week 10 Review Flu is undefeated against 16th Region Teams

By zebraman - Games in the 16th Region were few and far between. As a result of the flu outbreak several games were cancelled this week. The region looks will have a chaotic finish as the scheduling gets completed. 1) Ashland (Season: 23-0 This week: 0-0) Ashland did not have any games during week 10 due to the flu outbreak. 2) Rowan County (Season: 19-6 This week: 1-0) Rowan County has some cancellations and only ended up playing one game this week, against Menifee County.

Madisonville North Hopkins – BGP #8 Season record: 23-3 Madisonville-North Hopkins keeps on trucking along plowing through whoever they play. This past week, the Maroons dispatched Owensboro Catholic by 40 points, Caldwell... Read More →

By teeroy - 1. Bourbon County (21-5) - The Colonels picked up a big 75-63 victory over George Rogers Clark and also knocked off Paris 81-73. That means they finished in a tie in the district with George Rogers Clark, and that the 40th district top seed will be decided by a coin flip. The winner of the coin flip will face Paris and the loser has to play Montgomery County. Against the Cardinals, the Colonels found themselves in a hole early but battled back behind a 29 performance from star Amirion Joyce. Brycen Collins chipped in 20 points and also some game changing plays on defense. Poor three point... Read More →
