  1. is one of the sherrards out for the year as I have seen one of them hasn't played in awhile for Etown.
  2. Did one of Bethlehem’s best players transfer to Etown? I heard she did but not for sure.

  4. Season Recap The John Hardin Bulldogs amazing season continues as they are still undefeated as they ended up winning the 5th Region for the second straight year. The Bulldogs are the first team since Clay County in 1989 to enter the State Tournament undefeated. This was a team who wasn’t even picked to win their region at the start of the year and they have proved everyone wrong. Going into Rupp Arena they will have a record of 35-0. They average 73 points per game while they give up 54 points per game. The balance of John Hardin is why they are such a tough team to beat. They are one of the best rebounding teams in the State. This is a team who has blew out teams but also won games at the buzzer. They like to really pressure opponents on defense and try to make them uncomfortable. They have been down before in the second half and it never seems to bother them. They defeated Taylor County 62-51 in the region finals to win the 5th Region. At Rupp Arena they will be playing 10th region winner Campbell County who in the latest BGP Poll were ranked 8th in the state. This should be one of the better first round games. Starting Five Jachai Walker 6’0 PG Senior- Walker is averaging 9.5 points per game. He is their most consistent three-point shooter as he is shooting 37 percent from the three-point line. He is a player you don’t hear a lot about, but he always does his job and makes the Bulldogs go. For the point guard spot, he also rebounds well. Aaron Scott 6’0 SG Senior- Scott was second on the team in points averaging 14.5 points per game. Scott is an elite athlete who will make plays during the game that really makes your jaw drop. He can be an affective shooter as well as he is streaky when it comes to shooting. His driving game has got better as he has had a great Senior year. Trevon Harris 6’3 SF Junior- Harris averaged 13.3 points per game while being second on the team averaging 9.1 rebounds per game. Harris who is a slasher shoots an amazing 59.8 percent from the field. He has really come on this year and has been great for the Bulldogs. With his length he is also an elite defender to go along with a great driver on offense. Alex Matthews 6’4 PF Junior- Matthews is the Bulldogs best player and he’s proven it all year. He leads the team in points by averaging 17.5 points per game and leads the team with 10.9 rebounds per game. He shot an amazing 62.2 percent from the field this year. He has developed a good midrange game this year. Defensively he can guard multiple positions which shows his versatility. Matthews is a heck of a high school basketball player and his energy never stops. Preston Murrell 6’9 C Junior- Murrell averages 8.6 points per game and averages 5.9 rebounds per game. Murrell has improved tremendously since last year as he has become a big weapon for the Bulldogs inside. When he gets the ball deep down low there isn’t much you can do to stop him with his size. The big guy is also a good free throw shooter for his size.
  5. Even with a loss good to see Traynor come into his own to end the year. Expecting a big senior year for him next year.
  6. Goode was out with a illness. Since they don't play until Friday I would expect him to be back for that game.
  7. I think the Central Taylor game tonight could be a good one. I am really excited to watch that game tonight.
  8. If I had to predict I would say it will be Larue vs John. I would be very surprised if it didn't come down to the end once again.
  9. The 5th Region Tournament is here, and it looks to be an exciting Tournament this year. Hart County is hosting Region this year. There are two teams who are ranked in the top 10 of the state that will be playing in the 5th Region Tournament. By Saturday night we will know who will be representing the 5th Region at Rupp Arena. 1. John Hardin (32-0): The Bulldogs won the 17th district this last week as they remain undefeated. They beat North Hardin 82-54, and then beat Central Hardin 63-48 in the district championship. What a magical season it has been so far, but they still have more work to do. This is the most balanced team in the 5th Region as all 5 starters can be the leading scorer on any given night. Alex Matthews has been incredible all year and Aaron Scott has been there go to guard all year. They got a great draw and if they aren’t at least in the Region finals it would be a huge surprise. They have won in all ways this year so don’t be surprised if they end up cutting down the nets Saturday. 2. Larue County (25-4): The Hawks won the 18th district this last week. They opened the district beating Caverna 87-57 and beat Hart County 73-45 in the district championship. The Hawks have been waiting all year to get back to the regional tournament. They were one possession away last year from winning region and they want to make that nightmare go away this year. They have had a good year and they are led by big man Mark Goode and Anthony Adkins who overpowers most teams they play. Larue will be hoping that Saturday they get a regional final rematch with John Hardin and this time they end up cutting down the nets. 3. Central Hardin (19-9): The Bruins got runner up in the 17th district this last week. They beat Elizabethtown 67-54, and lost to John Hardin 63-48 in the district championship. The Bruins have had a good year and they have been a 5th region contender all year. They have lost three region games all year and all three has been to John Hardin. Jacob Hobbs is the guy for Central as he won region player of the year, however the Bruins have a lot of other nice pieces around him. Central plays Taylor first round which is probably the most anticipated first round match up. Centrals road is tough, but they are good enough if they play their best ball to have a chance to win the region. 4. Taylor County (21-7): The Cardinals won the 20th district this last week. They beat Campbellsville 79-75, and beat Marion County 71-58 in the district championship. They have had a great bounce back year after last year. They are a team with seniors who have played in the big moments, and three of the starters have won a region title. Trevon Smith is their best player as he is their go to guy when they need a bucket. They did get a very tough draw as they would most likely have to play Central Hardin, Larue County, and John Hardin to win region. They do have a great first round match up, and the Hobbs vs Smith match up will be awesome to watch. 5. Marion County (21-8): The Knights got runner up in the 20th district this last week. They beat Adair County 89-50 and lost to Taylor County 71-58 in the district championship. Losing the district championship at home is disappointing but the Knights have had a good year. They are a junior led team as their three best players are all Juniors. Tyshay Epps has been the guy and has improved a lot this year. They will play Bardstown again who they beat first game of the year, but if they beat them they will most likely have to play the region favorite John Hardin. 6. Bardstown (15-15): The Tigers won the 19th district for the sixth straight year this last week. They beat Thomas Nelson 76-57, and beat Washington County 72-62 in the district championship. The Tigers have been up and down all year but the past two weeks they have played their best basketball. They are led by JaRel Montgomery but lately they have got more help from Jayden Traynor as well. They will play Marion County who they lost to earlier but if the Tigers play like they have the Knights will have their hands full. 7. Washington County (19-12): The Commanders got runner up in the 19th district this last week. They beat Nelson County 63-60 and lost to Bardstown 72-62 in the district championship. The Commanders have struggled to end the year, but this has been a great year still. This is a senior led team who has done a lot for the Washington County program. They are led by their two senior sharpshooters Cameron Willis, and Drew Yates. Bad news is they drew Larue County, for them to have a chance they will have to make a lot of threes to cancel out LaRue’s easy buckets. 8. Hart County (10-18): The Raiders got runner up in the 18th district this last week. They beat Green County 79-72 and lost to Larue County 73-45 in the district championship. Harts record is misleading because of the injury to their best player in which they lost all seven games he was out. Since Shoulders has been back they have played well and have had a good year making region. They are hosting region, but they drew the region favorite John Hardin. 5th Region Draw Monday: 5:00 CST Washington County vs Larue County 7:30 CST Central Hardin vs Taylor County Tuesday: 5:00 CST Marion County vs Bardstown 7:30 CST Hart County vs John Hardin Friday: 5:00 CST Semifinal #1 7:45 CST Semifinal #2 Saturday: 6:00 CST Championship
  10. 1. John Hardin (30-0): The Bulldogs played two games this week and won both to end the regular season with a perfect record. They beat Hart County 89-66 on the road and beat Marion County 67-59 at home. What a year it has been for John Hardin as they are the only team in the state to be undefeated. In the win over Hart County, Aaron Scott had 24 points. The Bulldogs are looking to win the region for the second straight year. John Hardin will play the winner of North Hardin and Fort Knox in the 17th District Tournament at Elizabethtown. They are looking to win their third straight district title this week. 2. Larue County (23-4): The Hawks played two games this week and won both. They beat Elizabethtown 77-60 at home and beat Warren Central 54-52 on the road. This was a good last week, as they end the year with two solid wins. This has been a good year for the Hawks, but this team will be judged on how far they last in the postseason. In the win over Warren Central, Mark Goode had 21 points and 8 rebounds. Larue County plays Caverna in the 18th District Tournament at Hart County. They are looking to win their third straight district title. 3. Central Hardin (18-8): The Bruins ended the regular season playing two games where they won one and lost one. They lost to Breckinridge County 73-61 on the road and beat Meade County 72-62 at home. They lost to a good Breckinridge County team so that wasn’t a bad loss. The Bruins had a good year and have shown that they can compete with all the best 5th Region teams. Gavin George had 23 points in the win over Meade County. They will be playing Elizabethtown in the 17th District Tournament at Elizabethtown. This is probably the most anticipated first round game of the 5th Region. 4. Marion County (20-7): The Knights played two games this week and ended up winning one game and lost the other. They beat district foe Campbellsville 80-71 at home, and they lost to John Hardin 67-59 on the road. Marion competed with John Hardin, which must give them confidence going forward. They had a positive year and are playing good basketball to end the year. John Adams had 22 points and 10 rebounds in the win over Campbellsville. They will be playing Adair County in the 20th District Tournament at home. 5. Taylor County (19-7): The Cardinals played two games this week and they won both games. They beat Moore 76-69 on the road and beat Casey County 85-71 on the road. The Cardinals bounced back, after an embarrassing season the year before. This was a good way to end the regular season, by winning two road games. Trevon Smith had 32 points and 10 rebounds in the win over Casey County. They play Campbellsville in the 20th District Tournament at Marion County. 6. Elizabethtown (13-13): The Panthers played two games this week and lost both games. They lost to Larue County 77-60 on the road and lost to Bullitt East 70-61 on the road. Tough to lose both games to end the year, but both teams they lost to are very good. This has been a great year and the future is bright since they don’t start any seniors. Jaquais Franklin had 26 points in the loss to Bullitt East. They will be playing Central Hardin in the 17th District Tournament at home, which should be a fantastic game. 7. Campbellsville (18-12): The Eagles played three games this week, in which they won two of the games. They lost to district foe Marion County on the road 80-71, they beat Green County 68-62 at home, and beat Nelson County 73-61 on the road. The Eagles are playing their best ball at the right time. It has been a good year for the Eagles, and they will return several players for next year. Nataj Sanders had 16 points in the loss to Marion County. They will be playing Taylor County in the 20th District Tournament at Marion County, which could be a better game than most expect. 8. Bardstown (13-15): The Tigers played two games this week and won both games. They beat Oldham County 75-72 at home and beat North Hardin 51-47 on the road. What a way to end the regular season playing your best ball. The Oldham County win is a great win and must give them a lot of confidence. JaRel Montgomery had 21 points in the win over Oldham County. They play Thomas Nelson in the 19th District Tournament at Bethlehem. They are looking to win their 6th straight district title. 9. North Hardin (11-18): The Trojans played one game this week and they ended up losing that game. They lost to Bardstown 51-47 at home to end the regular season. Even though the Trojans only have 11 wins, they are a lot better than the record would indicate. They are a very athletic team who can play close against about anybody. They play Fort Knox in the 17th District Tournament at Elizabethtown where the winner will play John Hardin. 10. Washington County (18-11): The Commanders played three games this week and lost all three games. They lost to Adair County 51-46 on the road, they lost to Green County 78-61 on the road, and lost to Christian Academy Louisville 60-53 at home. They have had a good year, but this last week is disappointing going into tourney play. They were without their leading scorer in some of the games, so it will be important for Drew Yates to be back for them. In the loss to Green County, Cameron Willis had 38 points. They play the winner of Nelson County and Bethlehem in the 19th District Tournament at Bethlehem. 11. Hart County (9-17): The Raiders lost both games this week to end the regular season. It has been a disappointing year so far. Even though the record isn’t very good, when John Shoulders played this year, they were 9-10. They have a great shot to make region. They play Green County in the 18th District Tournament at home. 12. Adair County (12-18): The Indians played three games this week and won all three games. After losing their leading scorer, Adair has struggled. but ending the regular season with three wins should give them confidence heading into the postseason. Adair is looking to win their third straight district title. They play Marion County in the 20th District Tournament at Marion County. 13. Thomas Nelson (18-12): The Generals played three games this week and won two of the three. The magical regular season ended with 18 wins after getting only 2 wins last year. The only thing that would make this season even better would be to make region. They will play Bardstown in the 19th District at Bethlehem. 14. Green County (10-17): The Dragons played two games this week and won one and lost one. They have had a disappointing year, since they have so many seniors playing. The good part is that they are playing well right now going into postseason play. They will play Hart County in the 18th District Tournament at Hart County. 15. Bethlehem (8-19): The Eagles played two games this week which ended with two losses. The Eagles have had a transition year with a new coach and a lot of new players. The good news is the Eagles only graduate one senior. They play Nelson County in the 19th District Tournament at home, which the winner plays Washington County. 16. Nelson County (2-27): The Cardinals played two games this week and they lost both games. It has been a disappointing season as everything has seemed to just go wrong this year. They currently have a six-game losing streak. They will play Bethlehem in the 19th District Tournament at Bethlehem in which the winner will play Washington County. 17. Caverna (1-25): The Colonels played three games this week and they lost all three. The last couple of years they have been very successful, but this year hasn’t worked out that way. They currently have a twenty-five-game losing streak. They will play Larue County in the 18th District Tournament at Hart County. 18. Fort Knox (2-23): The Eagles played four games this week and were able to win only once. It was good for Fort Knox to get one more win on the year. It has been a long year as most losses have been blowout losses. They play North Hardin in the 17th District Tournament at Elizabethtown where the winner plays John Hardin. Top 10 Players 1. Jacob Hobbs (Sr, Central Hardin): The Region player of the year has averaged 18.8 points per game and 10.5 rebounds per game while shooting an efficient 57 percent from the field. He is a great athlete who is a difference maker on both sides of the ball. His shooting ability at his size makes him a tough cover. 2. Trevon Smith (Sr, Taylor County): The Mr. Basketball candidate has averaged 25.2 points per game and 8.7 rebounds per game while shooting 49 percent from the field. He has really improved on his outside shooting this year which has made him a hard guy to guard. The Lefty is a great slasher and gets to the line a lot. 3. Alex Matthews (Jr, John Hardin): Matthews has had a great year as he averages 17.4 points per game and 10.8 rebounds per game while shooting an amazing 61.6 percent from the field. The big man has improved a ton and is a big reason why the Bulldogs are undefeated. He’s a great athlete who is strong and seems to get every 50 50 ball. 4. Mark Goode (Jr, Larue County): Goode has been very good as he averages 16.1 points per game and 9 rebounds per game while shooting a great 59.7 percent from the field. Goode is a very skilled big man as he is a great free throw shooter as well. When he gets the ball in the paint, good things happen. 5. Anthony Adkins (Sr, Larue County): Adkins, the Army Football Commit, averages 15.4 points per game and 7.8 rebounds per game while shooting an amazing 63.6 percent from the field. Adkins is a good athlete for the size he is. He is such a good driver and finisher around the rim and his strength for high school is very rare. 6. Jaquais Franklin (So, Elizabethtown): Franklin has had a great year as he is averaging 20.7 points per game while shooting 49.1 percent from the field. Franklin is a big reason why Elizabethtown has had a good year. He can score by driving or with his jumper, as scoring seems to come easy to him. 7. John Shoulders (Sr, Hart County): Shoulders has been the guy for Hart this year, he averages 24.5 points per game while averaging 6.6 rebounds per game. He missed 7 games this year and Hart lost all seven, showing how valuable he is. Shoulders is a good athlete who can shoot from anywhere on the court. 8. Aaron Scott (Sr, John Hardin): Scott has stepped up this year and he is averaging 15 points per game while shooting 47 percent from the field. Scott leads the team in made threes. Scott is one of the best athletes in the 5th region and if you watch him in warmups you can see why. 9. Tyshay Epps (Jr, Marion County): Epps has been a pleasant surprise as he is averaging 17.3 points per game while shooting 45.9 from the field. No player on this list has improved as much from last year to this year as Epps. He is an athletic guard who can get to the rim and he can also be a good defender. 10. Malachi Corley (Jr, Campbellsville): Corley has been good this year as he is averaging 19.5 points per game, and 8.2 rebounds per game while shooting 54.8 percent. For a point guard, Corley rebounds great as he is a great athlete. He is mainly a driver and can be a pest on defense with his athleticism and strength.
  11. John Hardin is the smart pick, but Larue and Central could no doubt win region and it wouldn't surprise me at all. What would shock me is if someone wins region that isn't those three.
  12. 1. John Hardin (28-0): The Bulldogs did this week what they have done all year which is win as they won all three games this week. They beat Bardstown on the road 83-63, they beat district foe North Hardin 58-51 on the road and beat Nelson County 86-61 on the road. John Hardin took care of business this week and did everything they was supposed to do. They are ranked second in the state in a lot of polls which is the highest they have ever been in programs history. In the win over Bardstown Aaron Scott led the team with 20 points. 2. Larue County (21-4): The Hawks played three games this week and won all three games. They beat district foe Hart County 92-71 on the road, they beat Nelson County 79-33 at home, and beat Taylor County 85-56 on the road. This was an impressive week as they won easily all three games and beating Taylor by that much is impressive. The Hawks have 4 losses, but they have all been to quality teams, they are good enough to make a postseason run. Mark Goode had 26 points and 9 rebounds in the win over Taylor County. 3. Central Hardin (17-7): The Bruins played three games this week and ended up winning two of the three games. They lost to Eastern on the road 74-59, they beat South Oldham 74-72 in overtime at home, and beat Green County 63-43 on the road. The Bruins was upset to start the week as it was a surprise to lose to Eastern by 15. They did bounce back with a nice win and this is still a 5th Region Contender. Gavin George led the Bruins with 23 points in the win over South Oldham. 4. Marion County (19-6): The Knights had a short week as they only played one game and ended up with a win. Marion County beat North Hardin 54-45 at home. The Knights are currently on a six-game winning streak. The Knights have been playing very well lately and this week they have a chance to clinch the one seed in their district. Tyshay Epps has led the Knights in scoring this year by averaging 17 points per game. 5. Taylor County (17-7): The Cardinals played one game this week which was a home loss. The Cardinals lost to Larue County 85-56 at home. Losing to Larue isn’t a surprise as they are one of the best teams in the region, however losing by that much isn’t good. Taylor has lost three straight and hope to end that streak this week. Trevon Smith is leading the Cardinals with 25 points per game and 9 rebounds per game. 6. Elizabethtown (13-11): The Panthers played one game this week which was a win. They defeated Bardstown 89-83 in a home shootout. The Panthers have been a new team since Christmas break as they have shown they can compete with any team in the 5th Region. The scary part is they don’t graduate a starter, so this team will be a problem for years to come. Camden Williams had 32 points in the win over Bardstown. 7. Campbellsville (16-11): The Eagles played three games this week and they won all three games. The Eagles beat Caverna 79-62 on the road, beat Washington County 60-54 on the road, and defeated Bethlehem 68-53 at home. The Eagles are playing their best ball at the perfect time of the year. They currently have a five-game winning streak and the win against Washington on the road was very impressive. Malachi Corley had 28 points in the win against Washington County. 8. Washington County (18-8): The Commanders played three games this week and they won one of the three. They lost to Bullitt Central 60-56 on the road, lost to Campbellsville 60-54 at home, and defeated Whitefield Academy 56-40 on the road. Commanders had two close losses and the Bullitt Central loss would have been a great win. They are still set up well to make Region and possibly win a district title. Devin Hurst had 22 points and 9 rebounds in the loss to Campbellsville. 9. Bardstown (11-15): The Tigers played two games this week and lost both games. The Tigers lost to John Hardin 83-63 at home and lost to Elizabethtown 89-83 on the road. The Tigers played two good teams this week and lost a very competitive game to a good Etown team. The best news for the Tigers is they are set up great to make region once again. JaRel Montgomery had 31 points in the loss to Elizabethtown. 10. North Hardin (11-17): The Trojans played three games this week and ended up winning one of them. They beat Kentucky Country Day 81-70 on the road, they lost to district foe John Hardin 58-51 at home, and lost to Marion County 54-45 on the road. The Trojans played John very tough but couldn’t come out with a win. For an eleven-win team this team can play with most teams in the state. Jalen Sharps and Josh Moore both had 16 points in the win this week. 11. Hart County (9-15): The Raiders played three games this week in which they won one game. It has been a disappointing year but with John Shoulders on their side making region can still easily happen. 12. Thomas Nelson (16-11): The Generals played three games this week and won two of them. The great season has continued, and they are four wins away from twenty wins after having two wins last year. 13. Green County (9-16): The Dragons played three games this week and won one of them. It has been a disappointing year but with a veteran team they are hoping that leads to a region appearance. 14. Adair County (9-18): The Indians played three games this week and they won one of the games. It has been a disappointing year, but Adair did end a ten-game losing streak this week. 15. Bethlehem (8-17): The Eagles played three games this week and ended up winning two of those games. It has been a long year but if they could win two more to make ten wins that would help. 16. Nelson County (2-25): The Cardinals played two games this week and lost both. This week was one that you’d like to forget as they played two of the best teams in the region. 17. Caverna (1-22): The Colonels played three games this week and lost all three. Caverna has now loss twenty-two straight games after winning the season opener. 18. Fort Knox (1-20): The Eagles played four games this week which they lost all four. The Eagles almost got there second win of the year, but they couldn’t pull it out, they now have fifteen game losing streak.
  13. 1. John Hardin (25-0): The Bulldogs historic season continues as they won both games again this week. They beat district foe Elizabethtown 76-74 on the road in a dandy, and beat Bowling Green 86-59 at home. Bulldogs survived another scare as the Etown game came down to the wire but like every time this season they found a way. They than blew out 4th region favorite Bowling Green which was a nice statement win. Looking at the schedule there is a great shot they will be 30-0 going into postseason play. In the win over Elizabethtown freshman Devon Rogers led them with 18 points. 2. Central Hardin (15-6): The Bruins only played one game this week and that was a blowout district win. They defeated Fort Knox 87-36 at home. The Bruins have been challenged all year by tough teams and they have answered every tough test. The Bruins 6 losses have all been to very quality opponents. In the win over Fort Knox Jacob Hobbs had 27 points and 10 rebounds as he makes his case for region player of the year. 3. Larue County (18-4): The Hawks bounced back after a tough loss to end last week by winning both of their games this week. They beat Adair County 55-41 on the road and beat district opponent Green County 80-49 on the road. The Hawks four losses have all been to good teams and three of the four losses have been to top ten teams in the state. It is fair to say that Larue doesn’t have a great win yet and they are hoping that will come tourney time. In the win over Adair County Noah Davis led them with 15 points. 4. Taylor County (17-6): The Cardinals played three games this week and they ended up winning only one of them. They beat Caverna 102-64 on the road, lost to Warren Central 85-77 at home, and lost to district foe Marion County in overtime 86-84 on the road. Cardinals blew a 17-point halftime lead against Marion County which ended up being a fantastic game. Taylor would love to get a rematch against Marion County in the district championship game. In the loss to Warren Central Trevon Smith led them with 32 points and 10 rebounds. 5. Marion County (18-6): The Knights had a great week as they won all three games this week. They beat Franklin County 69-62 on the road, beat district foe Taylor County 86-84 in overtime at home, and beat Russel County 83-61 at home. The Knights had been struggling but this week was a major win for the Knights. They came back and beat Taylor after being down by 17 at half. In the win over Taylor Tyshay Epps ended up with 26 points to lead the Knights. 6. Elizabethtown (12-11): The Panthers played two games this week in which they won one and lost the other. They lost to district foe John Hardin 76-74 at home and beat district opponent Fort Knox 81-28 at home. The Panthers was one possession away from beating John Hardin. This is a team who has improved more throughout the year than any team in the 5th region. In the loss to John Hardin Jaquais Franklin and Camden Williams both had 19 points. 7. Washington County (17-6): The Commanders had a busy week which involved four games in which they won all of them. They beat Campbellsville 66-59 on the road, beat district foe Thomas Nelson 61-47 at home, beat Bluegrass United 91-60 at home, and beat Henry County 79-60 at home. Commanders keep on playing good ball and being led by a veteran group this isn’t a surprise at all. They are three wins away from getting a prestigious 20 wins for the Washington County program.
