Rockets prep for Hoptown on Friday

With about a month remaining in the high school basketball season, the Rockets take the first part of this week to rest their legs before going to Hopkinsville Friday to play perhaps the best team west of Louisville.

Hoptown’s Tigers are ranked eighth in Kentucky – the only team west of Louisville among the state’s top 10. Hopkinsville finished sixth after losing to top-ranked Louisville Trinity in the King of the Bluegrass Tournament last month.

The Tigers are certainly the top team in the region despite appearing a tad bit vulnerable in narrow wins over Henderson and Madisonville earlier this season. Otherwise, they’ve plastered all other teams in the Second Region by at least 14 points, most have been by 20 or more. Hopkinsville has beaten Graves County and Tilghman (among the best First Region teams) by 22 and 14 points, respectively.

The Tigers host the Second Region Tournament this year, so they’re no doubt favored to advance to the Kentucky Sweet 16.

Hopkinsville’s Jordan Majors and Jaqualis Matlock are likely the two best players in the region. Jamonte Davis also scores a great deal for the Tigers, who run a fast-paced offense and average about 75 points a game.
