  1. Cayson Conner, Marshall Co. committed to Murray State last Thursday. Congrats Cayson! #shoesup
  2. I don't think that will happen, and it shouldn't because of one year. I've confirmed with a former voter that the ballots are cast before the Sweet 16, and have been since the award was started in 1954. How would fans of mountain basketball have felt if Cawood's Phil Cox hadn't won it in '81? Troy McKinley of Simon Kenton is tournament MVP and the Pioneers bring home the 9th Region's first championship. Cox, like Lex Cath's Ben Johnson this year, never made a tournament appearance. This happens often. Just trying to keep the conversation lively 😃. I voted for Sam in the poll above, and you "liked" when I bumped this thread a few weeks ago. I'm a fan, even if I prefer a different shade of blue. Do you think Ross Neltner would've traded his '03 award for a chance to play in and win the tournament that year? Do you think Sam would? I think the vote would've been close pre tournament. At that time, Johnson had more "exposure" from being on the top ranked team and the numbers he put up. Vinson showed out in the Sweet 16 after votes were cast. Truth is, there isn't much of a correlation between being a great player on a title winning team and being awarded Mr. Basketball - it happens about 25% of the time. Winning the tournament MVP, the state championship, and Mr. Basketball trifecta is even rarer - it's only happened to a handful of players since the MVP award was revived in 1981. Again, I'm a fan of Sam. I wonder too, when there are now MaxPreps (which Sam has won) and Gatorade Players of the Year (which includes postseason performance), how relevant Mr. Basketball is today. Lots of folks in the Kentucky may know the history and the significance of winning Mr. Basketball, and I think that group skews older. The two newer awards don't always align with the older one either. MaxPreps and Gatorade have each have a big nationwide social media presence. Would more people recognize the winner of those awards as a more legitimate POY? How do today's players feel about it? In the end, I wouldn't be surprised if either Johnson or Vinson wins Mr Basketball. Both have had great careers, and both have bright futures. And remember again please, I'm a Vinson fan. 🤓
  3. Mr. Football was shared for the first time this year. Could the same happen for Mr. Basketball? It's happened once before - 1958, when Ralph Richardson of Russell Co. and Harry Todd of Earlington shared the award.
  4. 🌟 Bethlehem's win sends them to the statewide All "A" Classic tournament in Owensboro. Banshees on the All-Tournament Team ~ Kaitlyn Cissell, Rylee French, Maggie Mattingly, and Paige Miller.

  7. The KHSAA/Riherds Scoreboard has it listed as as a McCracken Co. win, which one would assume is official. Just checked Elder Baseball Twitter and the Panthers claim a 3-2 win. GCL South website doesn't have the score listed. It's a head scratcher. Go ahead and tell me about folks who assume ... 😆
  8. 🏆 The Miss Basketball award is due to be announced later today. From these candidates, who wins? If I had a ballot, Lady Flyer Brooklyn Miles name would be written on it. ✓ by PrepSpin
  9. 🏆 Congratulations Amiya! The Anderson County junior led the Lady Bearcats to the Sweet 16 semi-finals. Maybe a nice warm up for next year's Miss Basketball award? "Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades." Here's a review of Amiya's season ~ https://www-maxpreps/amiya-jenkins-named-2020-21-maxpreps-kentucky-high-school-girls-basketball-player-of-the-year.
  10. They did. Had a brain poot there. 🤔 Elder has losses to Cov Cath and McCracken Co. this year.
  11. I tell myself every year - don't forget about WKY, and well ... From last month at the Invitational of the South: Ben Fiser, a junior at Marshall Co. threw a 52-2.5 SP (KY #1), and a 157-2 DT (KY#2). Chase Thompson, a senior at Marshall Co. threw a 49-6.5 SP (KY# 7).
  12. Final from Louisville. Very nice win by the Mustangs over one of Ohio's best. Cincinnati Elder finishes the season 0-3 vs teams South of the river. Up next ~ McCracken Co. plays at Lyon Co. on Mon. (6:00). Elder resumes their GCL South schedule, hosting Moeller on Mon. (5:00).
