127 Games to Go

The district championships wrapped up over the weekend.  Here are the last results from Western Kentucky, which came in Friday night:

1st District Final (at Carlisle Co.):
Carlisle Co. 69, Hickman Co. 54

3d District Final (at Mayfield):
Mayfield 47, Graves Co. 37

5th District Final (at Livingston Cent.):
(9) Lyon Co. 88, Trigg Co. 47

7th District Final (at Hopkins Co. Cent.):
Madisonville-N. Hopkins 73, Hopkins Co. Cent. 49

Here's how the Media Poll's top 10 did in District Play:

1.  Warren Central (29-1) won the 14th District 75-56 over Bowling Green.
2.  Lex. Catholic (30-2) won the 43d District 61-39 over Lex. Christian.
3.  N. Oldham (24-5) won the 29th District 71-50 over Oldham Co.
4.  George Rogers Clark (24-5) won the 40th District 84-44 over Paris.
5.  Cov. Catholic (26-4) won the 35th District 61-53 over Beechwood.
6.  Lou. Ballard (25-4) won the 28th District 74-50 over Christian Academy-Louisville.
7.  Great Crossing (27-5) won the 41st District 78-73 over Western Hills.
8.  Lex. Frederick Douglass (28-2) won the 42d District 69-39 over Scott Co.
9.  Lyon Co. (27-5) won the 5th District 88-47 over Trigg Co.
10.  Lou. Evangel Christian (28-4) won the 23d District 85-58 over Lou. Moore.

So all ten teams have to feel really good about their chances going into regionals.  In fact, seven of them will be heavy favorites to win their region.  The other three -- Lex. Catholic, Great Crossing, and Lex. Frederick Douglass -- will battle for the 11th Region.  Douglass got a fortunate draw, and doesn't have to meet either Catholic or Great Crossing until the Regional Final.  Barring a huge upset, Catholic and Great Crossing will meet in the Regional Semi-Final.
