111 Teams Left

Snow is finally starting to release its grip on the Beloved Commonwealth, and seven games in the boys' basketball regionals were played last night.  Those games featured a big upset, as Newport Central Catholic becomes the first top-10 team to be eliminated:

4th Region Quarter-Finals (at W. Kentucky U.):
Barren Co. 79, Logan Co. 66
Bowling Green 58, Clinton Co. 47
Warren Cent. 46, Russell Co. 44

9th Region Quarter-Finals (at Bank of Kentucky Center):
Dixie Heights 48, Boone Co. 45
Cov. Holmes 58, (6) Newport Cent. Catholic 51

Note:  I love this quote from Holmes coach Mike Listerman:  "I know that we have a good basketball team.  We didn't win 22 games for nothing.  Have we not performed up to expectations in a couple of games?  Absolutely.  But this group is resiliant, I love this group of kids.  They're playing hard for me, they're giving their hearts.  We'll let the chips fall."

WE'LL LET THE CHIPS FALL!  That's my new motto.

13th Region Quarter-Finals (at Corbin):
Knox Cent. 69, Harlan Co. 63 (OT)
Clay Co. 57, Corbin 52
