  1. Unfortunately a lot of people do not know about this amazing highly competitive program. There are over 300 high school and middle school teams in the state covering more than 1500 students. The state of Kentucky is considered one of the top competitive Robotics states in the US and the world. There are 18,000 teams worldwide and the VEX World Robotics Championship takes place at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, and in Freedom Hall. There were 26 scheduled tournaments in Kentucky this year, including one of the largest tournaments in the World at Martha Layne Collins in Shelbyville with over 100 teams attending. This year's State Champions are Team 8349B and 8349B from Gateway Academy in Hopkinsville, Ky, which is the CTE school of Hopkinsville and Christian County High Schools. Here is a link to this year's game: There were 9 teams that qualified for the World Championship on April 24-27. 8349B - Gateway Academy 8349E - Gateway Academy 1859S - Jessamine County 9257R - Covington Catholic 6135K - Central Hardin 6135H - Central Hardin 41091A - Revelation Robotics Club 2886A - John Hardin 4104A - North Hardin Bob Lind from Covington Catholic received the KY VEX Coach of the Year.
  2. The jump shot has a handful of fathers, most of whom have been forgotten by all but the hardest-core of hardwood fans. Among these innovators was Joe Fulks, whose life story puts him in a singular category: he's the only Hall of Fame player—in Springfield, Canton, or Cooperstown—to have been murdered. Joe Fulks, who was from Birmingham, Kentucky, itself destroyed by Kentucky Lake, is often credited as an innovator of the jump-shot. Fulks transferred to Kuttawa after his town was submerged, played at Murray State, then spent several years in the NBA and its forerunners and was among the leading scorers each year. He was also murdered... Joe Fulks, the Jump Shot Innovator One Man Murdered and the Rest Forgot | VICE Sports
  3. Did everyone think the season was over when the Cats lost at Vanderbilt? Kentucky 81 Florida 76
  4. The 2012-13 12th Region Champion, Wayne County, ended their season with an 81-56 pasting given by the eventual state champion, Madison Central, in the opening game of the 2013 Sweet Sixteen tournament. The good news is that they return four starters from a team that posted a 17-3 record against 12th Region opponents last season. The bad news is that their dominance last season didn't go unnoticed and the offseason has brought new hope to many teams in the 12th Region trying to win the regional tournament in order to advance to Rupp Arena. Team Rankings 1. Wayne County - Wayne County returns four starters from last season's 12th Region championship team. Senior Jason Perkins, junior Peyton Woods and sophomores Corey Stearns and Trey Blevins. These four accounted for 52 points off of last season's team that averaged 69 points a game so scoring should not be an issue for the Cardinals this season. All four players are capable shooters who can handle the ball as well. Their lack of size is a concern but they hope that the experience that they gained last season will have some carryover to this season. The loss of their senior leader, Dagan Shelton, from last season's team may be felt early in the season but as the season progresses new leaders and new players in new roles should have Wayne County in a perfect position to defend their 12th Region title. Led by head coach Rodney Woods who is now starting his 28th year at Wayne County compiling a 562-305 record while at Wayne County(37 years,770-375 overall) the Cardinals are indeed the team to beat this season. 2. West Jessamine - West Jessamine ended last season with a heart breaking 67-66 loss to Wayne County in the 12th Region tournament semifinals. The defending 46th District champions, West Jessmine, return two of the best players in the region this season in seniors Will Henderson and Daulton Peters. While the Colts lost one of the top players in the region in Chase Fain they also return Rashawn Jackson, Siah Holifield, Landon Atkins and Dalton Crouse. Brooks Ely has transferred to West Jessamine and he looks to be in the rotation as well. Led by head coach, Damon Kelley, West Jessamine looks to remain as one of the top teams in the region as they have been while under Kelley's leadership. As usual, West Jessamine has a challenging schedule this season and if health is on their side they expect to be in the regional championship mix come March. 3. Boyle County - The Boyle County Rebels are the two-time defending 45th District champions and they fully expect to defend their title and make it three in a row. For the second consecutive year Coach Steve Adams will have to replace four starters from a district championship team. This year the Rebels may be more prepared to defend their title than last season. Led by returning leading scorer, junior Hagen Tyler, the Rebels look to be in the mix for the 12th Region title thanks to the emergence of post player, 6-6 sophomore Colton Elkins. Senior guard Clayton Ray has transferred from Garrard County and joined the Rebel team this season as well. The Rebels boast a strong junior class that includes returning 6th man and projected starter, Chapman Bean along with Keagan Hinkle, Zack Leigh and Tristin Bell. Bell is another who has had a strong offseason and looks to provide the Rebels with more depth at the guard spot. Sophomore Josiah Robbins was also a major contributor to last season's team and he returns with more experience in the system as well. With only one senior on the team this season the Rebels look to make a strong case for success this season and the future looks to be good as well. 4. Lincoln County - For the last two seasons Lincoln County has been the runner-up in the district tournament and this season they look to change their fortune. Like West Jessamine, Lincoln County returns two of the best players in the region in juniors Timmy Taylor and Jacob Conway. Taylor is regarded by some as the best point guard in the region and has had a very strong offseason on the AAU circuit. Lincoln County loses the inside presence of Luke Hill but Coach Jeff Jackson has done a fantastic job of maintaining consistency in his program and while the loss of Hill will hurt the Patriots expect to find a formidable replacement. Lincoln expects to finish as the district champs this season as playing second fiddle to Boyle County is not something that Lincoln County expects or plans to do this season. 5. Mercer County - Mercer County made it to the 12th Region tourney semifinals last season and Coach Brian Britt plans to have the Titans improve upon that this season. They return their top two leading scorers in sophomore Will Hager(13.6 point/game) and senior Russell Sims(13.1 points/game). The Titans hope that their depth will allow them to play at a fast pace to complement their ability to shoot from outside. They return a lot of experience from last year's team and they fully expect to be in the mix with an opportunity to play at Rupp Arena this season. The Titans leave for a trip to the Bahamas shortly after Thanksgiving and they hope that it is a great life experience for them as well as a team bonding experience. Much like Boyle County, the Titans have a lot of experienced youth on the team and while they expect to end their season in Rupp Arena they are also laying the groundwork for the future. 8th grader, Trevon Faulkner, is expected to contribute at the varsity level this season and some even expect to see him in the starting lineup at some point this season. With rumors of sophomore Drew Davis not expecting to play this season the addition of Faulkner should pay off for the present and the future of the Titans. 6. Southwestern - Southwestern went into the offseason stewing from an upset loss to Mercer County in the opening round of the 12th Region tournament. Southwestern went into last season as one of the top 2 teams in the region as was the favorite to advance to Rupp Arena last season with the nucleus of junior David Kapinga, junior Justin Edwards, sophomore Isaiah Collier and senior Justin Schultz. It is safe to say that the 22-9 season last year was a disappointing season for Southwestern and many 12th Region followers expected that the nucleus of seniors Kapinga and Edwards along with junior Isaiah Collier that Southwestern would be looking to redeem themselves this season. Ironically, Kapinga transferred out to St. Louis Christian and Isaiah Collier transferred to Jackson County leaving Justin Edwards as the lone experienced returnee for Southwestern. Edwards is regarded as the top player in the region but everyone else for Southwestern is an unknown. Adam Isaacs and Dylan Gaskin look to make some noise this season for Southwestern and we will find out soon just how good Southwestern will be this season. 7. Somerset - The 12th Region tourney runner-up, Somerset Briar Jumpers, returns two starters from that team in seniors Cam Cheuvront and Ryan Dishman. Somerset will unveil a brand new front court after the losses of Tyson Williams and Ryan Weddle. The Briar Jumpers boast a strong junior class and that should allow Somerset to be more athletic and give them a chance to increase the tempo and push the pace. Coach Jeff Cothron expects Somerset to be a strong contender for the 47th District title and they plan to be able to compete with all of the top teams by February. 8. East Jessamine - Coach Chris O'Bryan returns two juniors who had significant playing time last season in Ronnie Carson and Hayden Smith. Smith is regarded as one of the best pure jump shooters to ever don an East Jessamine uniform. Players expected to contribute to the Jaguars this season include senior guard Kahnan Leslie, sophomore post player TJ Ross, Mason County transfer Camryn Jones who is a sophomore guard and sophomores Shalah Nobles and TJ Downey will also be scoring options. East Jessamine has a lot of raw talent and chemistry could be an issue at the beginning of the season but they do expect to have themselves where they need to be by season's end to compete for the district title. East Jessamine is yet another team that has a ton of youth that will be gaining some valuable experience for on down the road. 9. Rockcastle County - Coach Benny Blanton fully expects his Rockcastle team to have taken what they learned from last season and apply it to this season. While Coach Blanton still considers Rockcastle to be a young team they will field four seniors on the roster this season to go along with three juniors. Their tallest player on the team is freshman Lucas Gentry and he is going to be relied upon to man the post for Rockcastle County. They return three starters in junior point guard Sam Pensol, senior forward Josh Mason and senior forward Corey McPhetridge. Rockcastle County and Coach Blanton have their sights set on being competitive in their district and strive to get better in practice everyday with hopes of making it to the region tournament. 10. Garrard County - Garrard County looks to erase the memory of last season, their first under head coach Dennis Pardue. They will led by six seniors this season including Austin Sebatian who is regarded by some as one of the top 10 players in the region. Garrard County will also have four sophomores dressing varsity that have experience from last season and all are at least 6-0 tall as well. Now that the team has had one year under Coach Pardue they look to improve from last season and aim to finish in the top 3 of the 45th District regular season standings with their sights set on the regional tournament. 11. Casey County - Casey County and first year coach Maze Stallworth look to surprise their district and region this season. Casey County has some talented freshmen joing the team along with Baylen Hill who some regard as one of the top players in the region. The opportunity for Casey County to catch people off guard and compete with the top teams in the region is expected by those who are loyal to Coach Stallworth and they feel that he will duplicate his coaching success in AAU(Team Manimal) at Casey County. 12. Danville - Danville has a new coach in Ed McKinney and this is his second go around at Danville. Coach McKinney's Danville team returns one senior in Jawan Grey and junior Cody Woolridge and sophomore Jakobi Turner are expected to lead the way for Danville. 13. Pulaski County - Replacing the threesome of Kody Johnson, Tyler Goins and Taylor Gover looks to be a tall task for Pulaski County and Coach Al Gover. Who replaces them and how quickly Pulaski County can recover remains to be seen. 14. Burgin - Burgin will return four starters in Tommy Lopresto, Mason Myers, John Price and Nick Beckerson. Coach Bryan Kirk expects the experience from these four returners to get them over the edge in close games and that it will translate into wins as the season goes on. 15. McCreary Central - Coach Robert Jones and McCreary Central look to improve from last season's 10 win season. 16. Kentucky School for the Deaf - KSD Coach Mike Yance returns a total of 10 players from a young team that ended last season on an 11 game losing streak. They have one senior on this year's team and KSD will be stronger and faster than last season's team as they look to put an end to that 11 game skind in their first game at Walden. Scoring and protecting the ball are issues the coaching staff look to resolve in this upcoming season as they continue to work hard in search of constant improvement. Player Rankings 1. Justin Edwards - Southwestern - senior- Justin is the near unanimous choice for top player in the region. A capable scorer with a knack for getting to the free throw line is facing his toughest challenge as the leader of this suddenly brand new looking Southwestern team. 2. Peyton Woods - Wayne County - junior - Peyton brings his 17 points/game average back to the Cardinals as they look to defend their region title. Like Edwards, Woods gets a ton of points from the free throw line and Woods also shot 83% from the line. 3. Daulton Peters - West Jessamine - senior - Daulton has rightfully ascended to leader of the West Jessamine Colts and this guard has been giving 12th Region coaches fits for years. He will be counted on to carry West Jessamine to where they want to be in March. 4. Ronnie Carson - East Jessamine - junior - Ronnie is arguably the most talented player in the region and his ability to score by penetrating or by shooting combined with his athleticism is hard to contain. If he gets on a roll then everyone should just sit back and enjoy his game. 5. Corey Stearns - Wayne County - sophomore - Corey brings his 16 points/game and 7 rebounds/game back to Wayne County for another run at the 12th Region title. 6. Hagen Tyler- Boyle County - junior - Hagen has proven to be an electric scorer since his freshman season at Boyle County. His deadeye jumpshot and his ability to knock down free throws at a high percentage makes him as dangerous as Edwards and Woods. 7. Will Hager - Mercer County - sophomore - Will caught the attention of opposing coaches during his freshman campaign as he adapted to varsity play quickly and by the end of the season was Mercer County's leading scorer. If he continues to grow physically and mentally he will likely end up as one of the greatest to ever play for Mercer County. 8. Timmy Taylor - Lincoln County - junior - Timmy is regarded as the best point guard in the region by some people. His ball handling ability, his basketball IQ and his ability to score and set teammates up along with his defensive skills help support that argument. 9. Jacob Conway - Lincoln County - junior - Jacob is going to be counted on to get buckets for Lincoln County any way he can. His inside/outside ability for his size makes him a capable and dangerous scorer. 10. Trey Blevins - Wayne County - sophomore - The third member of the new Big 3, Blevins brings his 13 points/game and 5 assists/game back to the table for the Wayne County Cardinals to being their march to March. 11. Will Henderson - West Jessamine - senior - Will made a name for himself early in his varsity career with his defense. One of the best defenders in the region, Henderson will now be counted on to provide some weight to the 1-2 punch of Peters and Henderson. 12. Austin Sebastian - Garrard County - senior - After a disappointing junior season, Austin looks to redeem himself and his name. A proven scorer, Austin will be looking to lead the Lions of Garrard County into the regional tournament. Honorable Mention Colton Elkins - Boyle County Baylen Hill - Casey County Russell Sims - Mercer County Sam Pensol - Rockcastle County Dylan Gaskin - Southwestern Adam Isaacs- Southwestern Camryn Jones - East Jessamine Jason Perkins - Wayne County Ryan Dishman-Somerset Cam Cheuvront-Somerset
  5. Said that with ESPN showing that Indiana last second shot over ans over it has kept his tem humble and focused over the course of the season and it still makes the team upset for how they let it happen. Davis said he hates it but uses it as motivation and Jones says that he just turns off the television every time it comes on. If we end up winning it all I will thank ESPN as well.
  6. The Wildcats finish a perfect 16-0 in the SEC. The game was 46-44 UK at one point as Florida utilized the transition game to get a horde of easy baskets, but UK then scored 8 straight to push the lead back out and cruised from there. The loss pushed Florida down to the #4 seed and bumped Tennessee and Vanderbilt up to #2 and #3 respectively. The new format was good to the former SEC East. UK will play the winner of LSU and Arkansas in the SEC quarters, and then with a win there would face either Florida, Alabama, or South Carolina.
  7. During post game interviews, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist told reporters: “I’m graduating here. I’m not going nowhere. I’m staying at Kentucky.” I must admit that it moved a little bit. :lol::lol:
  8. 51 straight wins at home for UK. This moves them to 14-0 in the SEC and clinches the regular season crown for the Wildcats.
  9. So much for the UK conspiracy, at least as far as the South/Midwest placement. I think it had to have come down to them realizing Missouri or Kansas would be the #2 in the Midwest. #1s are Kentucky, Syracuse, North Carolina, Michigan State.
  10. Jones hits a three - GOOD. Davis gets a foul - BAD.
  11. 5A #3 Warren Central travels to Franklin-Simpson this Friday to take on the 2011 4A runner-up Wildcats. The Dragons have won five straight over Franklin-Simpson, including a 34-6 waxing at Warren Central last year. The overall series between the two is tied at 17 all. The Dragons enter fresh off of a 42-28 win over 1A power Mayfield, while Franklin-Simpson opened the Doug Preston era with a 12-0 loss at home to Monroe County. My personal take is that this should be a walkover for Warren Central. The Wildcats have talent, but IMO they are too young to contend with a team like Warren Central. I like Central by 4-5 TDs. What say you?
  12. One of the games featured in the 5 for $500 Contest Sponsored by J & J Sports this week. Both teams are coming off losses to highly regarded 5A opponents, with Ryle falling 35-6 at #7 Cooper and Henry Clay falling 44-27 to #2 John Hardin. Which one bounces back in the iHigh Football Frenzy?
  13. Warren Central had 438 total yards. Mayfield had 250. Jonathan Jackson had 116 yards on 26 carries. Mayfield just couldn't stop the jet sweep. Central just wore the Cardinals down. Congrats to WC on the win.
