  1. We are officially in basketball season with a week behind us. We've had several surprises thus far in the 14th Region. 1) Breathitt County: (1-0): The 14th region crown has eluded the Breathitt Bobcats. No matter how good the teams Breathitt County has fielded, the 14th region crown has been out of their reach. With a new man at the helm and another talented team, can this finally be the year the Bobcats cut down the nets? They certainly got off to a good start. After a close back and forth battle, Breathitt County was able to get past Lee County 73-54. Schedule doesn't get any easier as they will open up the WYMT Mountain Classic with Martin County who just completely thrashed Cordia 84-15. 2) Perry County Central: (2-1): The defending 14th region champions, can they make it a repeat? They got off to a 2-1 start this past week. Falling to Harlan County but picking up wins over Leslie County 80-48 and Magoffin County 80-63. Commodores don't have an easy task ahead this week with undefeated Betsy Layne in the WYMT Classic. Betsy Layne has won all of their games by double digits. 3) Hazard: (3-0): Big Al has his Bulldogs off to a fantastic start, winning all three games to open up the season. Winning all three games by 29+ points. Defeating Paris 74-46, Powell County 71-36, Whitley County 71-42. Much like the top two teams, the schedule for this week won't be any easier as the Bulldogs will tip it up with Harlan Green Dragons in the WYMT Mountain Classic. Both teams come into the contest undefeated. 4) Letcher County Central: (2-3): The Cougars played 5 games with just 1 day off in between plus made the long trip down from the Mountains to Lexington where they took on Frederick Douglass and Bryan Station on back to back nights. Cougars opened up the season with a 84-63 loss to Pikeville but would bounce back and win they're next two games defeating Phelps 90-68 and Lee VA 87-51. This is when the Cougars would make the long trip down from the Mountains to Lexington where they would take on both Frederick Douglass and Bryan Station. Both would be losses for the Cougars as they would fall to Frederick Douglass 83-69 and Bryan Station 85-68. Letcher County Central will host Twin Springs VA this week. 5) Wolfe County: (1-2): Wolfe County picked up a big win thrashing Jackson City 87-34 but would fall in they're next two games losing 74-61 to Scott County and 75=58 to Whitley County in DJ Begley Classic at Hazard. Wolfe County will host Cordia and travel to Estill County this week. Can they regroup or will L's continue to stock pile up? 6) Estill County: (0-1): The Engineers took one on the chin when they fell to Sayre 73-47. Schedule doesn't get any easier this week with Wolfe County and Owsley County both lurking. 7) Lee County: (1-1): The Bobcats surprised folks this past week when they defeated Knott County Central 77-73 and gave the #1 Breathitt Bobcats all they wanted for a half before eventually falling 73-54. Three big games for the Bobcats this week. At Jackson County, at home vs. Jackson City and at Buckhorn. 8 ) Buckhorn: (2-0): Buckhron is off to a great start picking up two solid wins defeating Red Bird 73-46 and Onedia Baptist Institute 99-75 in the PRTC Classic at Jackson County. The Wildcats will be home all this week hosting both Cordia and Lee County. Can they remain undefeated or will someone hand them they're first loss on the season. 9) Knott County Central: (1-1): The Patriots have a new look this season and so far it's not a good look. The Patriots opened up the season falling on the road to Lee County 77-73. However, the Patriots would bounce back and defeat Barbourville 62-45 in the DJ Begley Classic at Hazard. Patriots have a long road ahead this week as they take on the Black Bears of Harlan County in the WYMT Mountain Classic. 10) Leslie County: (0-3): The Eagles have not had the start they've wanted. Getting blown out in they're first three games of the season. Have yet to even score 50 points in a game. I'm sure Coach Noble is hoping for a big turn around this week as they host both Jenkins and Wellspring Gaurdians Home school. 11) Powell County: (1-2): The Pirates opened up the season with a 73-55 over Menifee County but would fall in they're next two games losing 71-36 to Hazard and 59-55 to Montgomery County. Pirates will be on road this week at Burgin and Paris. 12) Owsley County: (2-1): Owsley County opened up the season with two wins defeating OBI 70-52 and Ligon Home School 78-46 but would fall to Jackson County 74-55. Owsley will host Pineville before going to Whitley County this week. 13) Jackson City: (1-2): Dropped two of their first three games, losing 87-34 to Wolfe County, 83-82 to Jenkins in Overtime. Tigers did beat Ligon Home School 76-44 to begin the season. 14) Cordia: (0-3): The Lions are an old shell of they're former selves. Cordia has taken beatings this season. Losing all three games by right around 50 points each. Two of the three games they haven't scored 23 points in either of those two games.
  2. Yep. Sounds like NCAA dropped it on this case if true.
  3. From what I was reading the NCAA knew he was ineligible but failed to tell anyone. Officials, UK, Coaches anyone then hit UK with big fine.
  4. Oscar told Kyle Tucker that they don’t really run what Cal is telling them too. If true, then that’s not good. Toppin made the comment that some guys can’t step up.
  5. Kentucky just flat out stinks this year. Might as well just call the season before they keep embarrassing everyone. Can we please go ahead and get rid of Cal?
  6. That was a quick little break from last season as we are here for the new basketball season. We've had couple movements inside the 14th region this offseason. John Noble left Breathitt County to become the Leslie County Eagles head coach. Knott County Central head coach BB King left the Patriots to become Breathitt County's head coach. We'll have to wait and see if these movements effect each team. Several questions to be asked. Can Perry County Central repeat as 14th region champions? They will be hard to beat on their own home court come tournament time. Is Breathitt County the favorite with what they return and new head coach in BB King who just so happens to know how to win big ball games? How much better will Leslie County be with John Noble leading the helm? Estill County ended up being the dark horse last season, outlasting two different teams in 4 OT's (Wolfe County 3 OT) (Cordia OT), will that be the case this season or will their be a new dark horse that can surprise some people? Does Losing BB King affect Knott County Central? 1) Perry County Central: Perry County Central dominated the 14th region last season going 16-0 throughout the season and defeating two out of the three teams in the 14th region tournament by double digits. The Commodores lost bulk of their scoring in Landon Napier, Lance McKenzie and Dylan Brock. Those three were also their leading rebounders. The Commodores have a ways to go if t hey wanna repeat as 14th region champions but until someone knocks them off they are King of the 14th Region. 2) Breahtitt County: Biggest news coming out of the 14th region this offseason is the Bobcats snagging Knott Central head coach BB King to lead the helm after John Noble left to take over the head coaching position down the road at Leslie County. Breathitt County returns the bulk of their offense from last season in Austin Sperry, Luke Bellamy and Christian Collins. Tough schedule should have the Bobcats ready by tournament time but will this be the year they get over the hump and cut down the nets? 3) Hazard: As long as Al Holland is leading the way, the Bulldogs will always be a top 5 team in the 14th region. This year should be no different especially with Hazard returning most of their core players from a year ago and as Big Al always does, loads the schedule down. Hazard went 5-5 down the stretch last season, let's see how this year plays out. 4) Letcher County Central: This could be one of the best Cougars team to hit the floor in recent years as they return most of their team from a year ago. Coach Matthew Taylor has beefed up the schedule a tad bit for the Cougars as they will head to Marion County for two day tournament before heading to Gatlinburg TN for Smoky Mountain Classic where they will open up with Travelers Rest SC. 5 games in 5 days. They've also added Pikeville to the schedule, that should be a fun game to kick off the season. 5) Estill County: Can the Engineers repeat the effort they made last year upsetting both Wolfe County and Cordia in the 14th region tournament? No new teams on the schedule this season other than Smoky Mountain Classic at Gatlinburg TN. Engineers will open up Blue Bracket with Landrum SC. Estill County will be hosting the rail road classic at the end of December. Engineers kick off the tournament against Menifee County and await either Paintsville or Jackson City. 6) Wolfe County: The Wolves season ended in heart break last season as they fell to Estill County in triple overtime in the first round of the 14th region tournament. Wolfe County also lost big chunk of their scoring but they return both their leading scorer in Swayer Thompson and leading rebounder Skylar Ritchie. As always Coach Creech has a beefed up schedule. Second game of the season at Scott County. 7) Knott County Central: Patriots struggled last season not even winning 10 games. Patriots will have a new look this season as Coach BB King left to become the head coach of Breathitt County. Casey Huff was hired to lead the Patriots. Can the Patriots regroup or will they struggle again this season? 8 ) Cordia: Cordia seen their season come to an end in heart break last year falling to Estill County in overtime in the semi-finals of the 14th region tournament. Cordia has a new head coach in Mitch Smith. Judging by KHSAA roster several of their top leading scorers are no longer listed. 9) Buckhorn: The Wildcats return their scoring from a year ago and will be tested throughout the year this year with the schedule. Can they get past Hazard or Perry to get back to the regional tournament? 10) Lee County: First time in a long time that the Bobcats have been ranked in the top 10. This year will be a make or bust year for the Bobcats and leading scorer Zach Watterson. Can the Bobcats make some noise? 11) Leslie County: Eagles made a big splash this offseason when they hired John Noble to lead the Eagles. Will his presence be enough to get the Eagles to where they wanna be or does he have a long ways to go? 12) Powell County: Pirates have had a rough past couple years. Will this year be any different or will they be one of the bottom feeders of the 14th region? 13) Jackson City: Tigers struggled last season and it doesn't help that they are stuck in a district with both Breathitt and Wolfe County. Is their anything they can do to get past both Breathitt and Wolfe this season? 14) Owsley County: The Owls have been stuck at #14 for quite sometime, can they get out of this slot or will this be another year they don't move? Top 10 Players: 1) Austin Sperry (Breathitt County) 2) Christian Collins (Breathitt County) 3) Swayer Thompson (Wolfe County) 4) Rydge Beverly (Perry County Central) 5) Bryce Hoskins (Breathitt County) 6) Kaden Adams (Letcher County Central) 7) Kade Benton (Estill County) 8 ) Tyler Day (Perry County Central) 9) Mel Hazell (Hazard) 10) Luke Bellamy (Wolfe County)
  7. Estill County’s Jordan Marcum won class 3A district 5 coach of year. who were the other winners?
  8. I’m assuming Estill, Powell and Jackson County will be in same district. any news when the actual draft will be made and available for viewing?
  9. Anyone have the sections brackets? Not the state tournament bracket but the sectional?
