Last Night's Boys' Basketball Scores

Only four games last night, so 62 teams are still dancing.  Ballard and Trinity -- the two best teams in the Commonwealth -- reached the 7th Region Final.  That game, which tips off at 2 PM on Saturday, should be the high school game of the year in Kentucky.

7th Region Semi-Finals (at Louisville Valley):
Lou. Ballard 59, Lou. Male 49
Lou. Trinity 52, Lou. Central 41

16th Region Quarter-Finals (at Morehead State):
Rowan Co. 66, Morgan Co. 50
Russell 77, Boyd Co. 69

Tonight there are only four games across the Commonwealth, but one of them is a biggie:  Bullitt East (29-4) will meet PRP (23-7) in a 6th Region Semi-Final.  Last year, this was the Regional Final, and Bullitt East won 47-44 at the buzzer.  PRP will be looking for revenge tonight.


  1. Here are the last 10 teams to win the 7th Region:

    2012: Lou. Trinity (STATE CHAMPS)
    2011: Lou. Eastern
    2010: Lou. Ballard (State Runner-up)
    2009: Lou. Eastern
    2008: Lou. Jeffersontown
    2007: Lou. Ballard (State Runner-up)
    2006: Lou. Jeffersontown (STATE CHAMPS)
    2005: Lou. Ballard
    2004: Lou. Trinity
    2003: Lou. Ballard (State Runner-up)

    Yes, that's right, Ballard lost the state title game in 2003, 2007, and 2010. Plus they were the only team to challenge Trinity last year. They may be due for a breakthrough.

  2. Here are the last 10 champs of the 16th Region:

    2012: Rowan Co.
    2011: Rowan Co. (State Runner-up)
    2010: E. Carter
    2009: Elliott Co.
    2008: Elliott Co.
    2007: Elliott Co.
    2006: Russell
    2005: Rowan Co.
    2004: Morgan Co.
    2003: Rose Hill Christian

    No team from the 16th Region has gone all the way since Larry Conley took Ashland to the 1961 title.
