21 Teams Left

Last night was one of the best nights of the year in Kentucky sports, with 10 tickets for the State Tournament being handed out.  There was also an enormous game in Union County, where Hoptown took a huge step toward its fourth consecutive to the State Tournament with a big win over Henderson County.  You will recall that Hoptown thought it was rolling to the State Title last year, when it was humiliated by Louisville Trinity (74-56) in the state quarter-finals.  This year, Hoptown lost 75-73 to Henderson County at home, and was crushed 71-42 at Trinity in early February.  But since then the Tigers have won eight games in a row, and Henderson County and Trinity have both been eliminated:
