Greensburg, KY.— Due to inclement weather the 5th region tournament was moved to Saturday and the first match up included a 10 a.m. tip off.
Favored Caverna was upset by Elizabethtown 76-63 to move on to the semis against Bardstown who easily handled Adair County 59-38.
The first semifinal sets up to be a dandy with Mr. Basketball finalist Elizah Cowherd and defending 5th region champs Bardstown against a scrappy and athletic Elizabethtown team. The two are set to tip off March 9th at 6pm.
In the bottom of the bracket Taylor County blew out Bethelem 75-50 and North Hardin handled Green County 85-69. This sets up a highly athletic North Hardin team against junior sensation Quentin Goodin and his talented Taylor County cast. The two tip off at 8:45 or following the first semifinal.
No doubtly this region is talent packed. From Mr. Basketball nominees to highly recruited underclassmen this region is filled with players who can pour in 40 on any given night. Whoever wins this region should be proud to hoist the 2015 5th region trophy and will represent it well in Rupp Arena.
