125 Games to Go

Only two games tonight, both in the First Region:

First Region Quarter-Finals (at Murray State U.):
Mayfield 64, Calloway Co. 54
(10) McCracken Co. 57, Fulton Co. 26


  1. 20 regional games on tap tonight, with action in the 1st, 2d, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th regions.

  2. St. X takes out Manual 66-65 in overtime. Manual finishes with a record of 21-6.

  3. Hoptown pounds Crittenden County 82-46. Hopkins County Central beats Henderson County 63-52.

  4. Murray beats Graves County 72 to 53.

  5. Lyon County beats Christian County 63-51 in Eddyville.

  6. Madisonville beats Union County 81-75 in overtime. So the Second Region Semi-Finals look like this:

    Lyon Co. v. Madisonville-N. Hopkins
    Hopkinsville v. Hopkins Co. Cent.

    1. I saw a woman wearing a Lyon County shirt in an Evansville, Indiana, Target on Saturday, so I stopped her to say that I had noted both the Lady Lyons and Lyons were having good seasons. She seemed delighted to chat about both teams a little bit. On Monday night, the Lyon County girls' season ended, with a loss in the Second Region tournament at Madisonville-North Hopkins to the Lady Maroons. Thursday's boys' game at Hopkinsville is going to be something. Lyon County is 21-0 in the region; North is 15-3, with one of the losses being at home by five to the Lyons in January.

  7. In Louisville, Ballard beats Trinity 66-55. So the Shamrocks are out.

  8. Tilghman beats Carlisle County 71-34. So the First Region semi-finals look like this:

    Mayfield v. McCracken Co.
    Tilghman v. Murray

  9. In the Fourth Region, Bowling Green beats Franklin Simpson 62-45. But I think we all know we're just waiting for the rematch between BGHS and Warren Central.
