26 Games Left

Huge night last night -- 23 big games, including championship games in five regions.  We  lost several more top-10 squads, as it was a pretty good night for upsets.  Top-10 squads Bullitt East, Covington Catholic, and Scott Co. were all eliminated.  Also, Tilghman got beat, and Hoptown will miss the State Tournament for the first time in a long time.  And someone from outside Warren County finally beat Warren Central.  Here we go:

1st Region Semi-Finals (at Murray St. U.):
McCracken Co. 58, Graves Co. 51 (2 OT)

So five teams -- (1) Christian Co., Lou. Doss, Newport Cent. Catholic, Lex. Dunbar, and South Laurel -- have qualified for the State Tournament.  That leaves eleven slots -- and, by coincidence, we are playing eleven regional title games tonight:
