74 Teams Left

Lots of action all over the Commonwealth yesterday as schools are racing to complete the 16 boys' basketball regional tournaments.  Here were the scores from yesterday's 37(!) games.  One big story was that 9th-ranked -- and defending state champs -- Covington Catholic survived an overtime scare against Newport.  Once again, the Ninth Region is putting on a great show.  An even bigger story was that Mason County -- who was ranked 10th in the Commonwealth with a record of 27-2 -- was eliminated on its home floor by the Harrison County Thorobreds.  Huge win for Joe Hall and all the folks in Cynthiana. Harrison County's record is now 16-14.
