8th District Tournament Begins Monday at Hopkinsville

Hopkinsville and University Heights enter the Eighth District Basketball Tournaments as their favorites to repeat as champions. 

The guys begin play Monday at Hopkinsville’s Tiger Gym as the host Tigers (25-2) play Fort Campbell (3-16) at 6pm.  UHA (14-10) and Christian County (8-17) play in the 7:30 nightcap.

Hopkinsville won their six district games by an average of 39 points a game.

The best game should be the UHA/Christian County matchup.  The Blazers beat the Colonels 83-70 and 81-73 during the regular season.  Christian County is 15-8 all-time vs. the Blazers in the district tournament. 

The boys’ championship will be played Thursday at 7:30pm.

For the ladies, University Heights rolled through the regular season with only one loss to a region team – Madisonville last week.

The Lady Blazers (21-3) open defense of their district title Tuesday at 6pm against a Fort Campbell (2-21) team they beat 67-31 and 60-47 during the regular season.

Hopkinsville (13-13) and Christian County (11-12) play in the 7:30pm nightcap.  The teams only met once during the regular season, with Hoptown slipping away with a 49-44 win on Jan. 17.

Christian County has won 20 of their 30 career meetings with Hopkinsville in the district tournament, including eight of the last nine.

Hopkinsville won the district title two year ago.  Christian County last won a title in 2010, and Fort Campbell is looking to end a 17-year district title drought.

The girls' title game will be played Thursday at 6pm.
