  1. 2009 Boone County (regional runner up) was a pretty good team. 26-5 record, gave state champ Holmes one of its only defeats that year, and lost by only a point or so in the regional championship to them. Actually had a chance to beat them but missed a potential game winning bunny layup with 3 seconds left. Not sure I would put any of Boone's players from that team in "all-time" 9th-region players, but they played great team basketball.
  2. New Cath: Phil Popp from the old days. Went on to be All American at Bellarmine.
  3. Yes, I believe there was an 11-1 Dixie team back before there was a state championship playoff system. In the 80s, there was at "at large" state championship, and the winner of that would play the Louisville champ for the overall state championship. Nonetheless, this has been a great year for Dixie.
  4. Class of 81 and 85 both also won the regional championship. Both lost the next game. A banged up and injured 81 team lost to eventual state champs and nationally ranked Henry Clay who was the first non Louisville school to win state in the big school division. With a win vs Ballard this years Dixie team will have gone further. This Dixie team is very good. I see some similarities in talent. Both teams had similar records with their only regular season loss to Cov Cath. Class of 81 had Pike who played later at Georgia Tech and Derry who went on to play fullback at Uk plus three all staters in Shockey, Popp, and Lemker who also played at San Diego State. ..
  5. Is that the best you can come up with? Something that happened 35 years ago? "Past transgressions make him a suspect" you've got to be kidding.... I bet 99% of the people that comment on Hicks doesn't know anything about what happened in 1979. Hicks just has a good program that draws good players to Scott County. I don't think there would be a coach in the state that would run off any of the players that transferred into Scott Co. Since some people think that Hicks gets jobs at Toyota for the players parents; name the players parents that got these "so-called" jobs.
  6. Nice tournament. The old Kentucky Patriots won the A division 5 or 6 years ago.
  7. Obviously you don't know much about KY high school basketball. The 11th Region is always one of the top two or three regions in the state. Bryan Station Henry Clay Lafayette Tates Creek Paul Dunbar Lexington Catholic Lexington Christian Lexington Sayre Scott Co Woodford Co Franklin Co Frankfort Ind. Western Hills Madison Central Madison Southern Berea Richmond Model Cake walk????
  8. Madison Central was never in the game; Hicks played subs the majority of the 4th quarter. Players 11-15 actually got at least 3 minutes of playing time. Nobody on MC's team could guard Gilbert. He scored at will. With Scott Co's point guard not playing against Henry Clay, it should be a good game.
  9. Not sure about that. After all, Polson got quite a bit of PT at UK this year. Hawkins is a better player, IMO.
  10. I agree with the above post 100%. The 9th region doesn't do very well when they play outside of their region; especially when they play decent teams from other regions. The team representing the 9th last year in the sweet sixteen, was the worst team at the state tournament by far. Let's just face it, the 9th is a football region (excluding Covington Holmes).
  11. That's why you play the JV and don't schedule games with the girls. Watching girls play is similar to watching paint dry.
  12. I'm sure you know this, but for those that don't, D3 does not have any athletic scholarships.
