The Rockets will open All A Classic Tournament play tonight in the semifinals of the Second Region at Dawson Springs. Crittenden received a first-round bye and will face Caldwell County tonight. Tipoff is at 7:30. It's the second game of a doubleheader. Livingston Central faces UHA in the 6 p.m. game.

WMJL Radio will not be carrying tonight's game because an access line was not available at the Dawson Springs gym.

The Tigers, 10-5 with the fifth best record in the region, have won four their last five games – granted two of them were against Dawson Springs, which is the worst team in the region. Still, Caldwell is a formidable foe. The Tigers beat CCHS 65-44 at Rocket Arena in the season-opener.

Crittenden, now 5-13, has lost five straight games. The last loss, at Fort Campbell, was especially tough to swallow. The Falcons had just one victory coming into that matchup.

Travis Gilbert (pictured above) started at Fort Campbell and scored 11 points. Starting two-guard Landon Young missed that game because of a mild concussion. Young will be out again tonight and Gilbert will likely get the starting nod. Gilbert's 11 against Fort Campbell was second only to Devin Belt's team-high 12 points.
