Conference Preview

Posted On: 09/23/19 5:00 AM

Over the next 2 months, we'll preview the top teams and players in each of the 16 regions as we move toward the 2019-2020 regular season. As part of our preview, we'll break down the regional title contenders and the top college prospects in every region. We start with the first region, where McCracken County is the favorite to get back to Rupp Arena in a region that has been hit hard by graduation since last season.

Top Five Regional Title Contenders:

McCracken County - They return two of the best players in the region with Noah Dumas and Jackson Sivills. After going 31-4 last season and losing the regional title game to Mayfield, these Mustangs are the heavy favorites in the first region.

Marshall County - Coach Birdsong's team returns the entire roster from a 13-19 team that went through some growing pains last year and added the most impactful transfer in the state as Zion Harmon is now eligible after sitting out his Sophomore season.

Murray - The Tigers graduated 6 guys last year but the cupboard is not bare in Murray. Hunter Utley is back for his Senior year after averaging 12 points per game
