Kentucky High-school Girls' Basketball, 16 Teams Left

Those are the 16 teams who are competing for the 2017 Kentucky High School Athletic Association girls' basketball championshipdepicting the routes of the eight with state-tournament games today at BB&T Arena in Newport:

Noon Eastern, Louisville Sacred Heart Valkyries (29-5) vs. Louisville Butler Bearettes (32-2)

1:30 p.m., Murray Lady Tigers (26-5) vs. Nelson County Lady Cards (30-3)

6:30 p.m., Boyd County Lady Lions (26-8) vs. Mercer County Titans (27-6)

8 p.m., Winchester George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals (29-4) vs. Harlan Lady Dragons (27-8)


  1. Indeed, WNBStubblefield is on the air with Game 2 of the state tournament. It's the third quarter, and Nelson County just completed a three-point play to pull within 46-14 of Murray [sic].

  2. Well, I feel like an idiot. BB&T Arena is on the campus of Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights. I knew NKU played there, but I thought it was a separate property in Newport. The Kentucky desk regrets the error.

  3. "Our concession stands offer traditional arena fare such as hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn, nachos, assorted Pepsi products and a variety of beers featuring Anheuser-Busch products," and pretend me probably has had a hot dog, some popcorn and maybe a Crystal Pepsi this afternoon. But supper at the pretend HP Luxury Suite is a far fancier affair, with the Above the Rim Package from Northern Class Catering:

    -- Bottomless Popcorn
    -- Salsa Sampler
    -- Cheese Platter
    -- Market Fresh Fruit
    -- Deconstructed Steakhouse Salad
    -- Homemade Macaroni and Cheese
    -- Pulled Pork Sliders
    -- Gourmet Cookies and Brownies

    I imagine we have all the former HP Kentuckian of the Year winners there and some of our other frequent guest stars--Ashley Monroe, some mucky mucks from King William's College on the Isle of Man, Viswanathan Anand, Alberto Contador, Mel Renfro, etc.
