T-minus four weeks to tourney time

The time to think about the basketball postseason begins now.

Only four weeks of the season remain, and the jockeying for seeds in the district tournaments will be over even sooner. Some of the No. 1 seeds around the 12th Region are starting to become clear; other races are very much up for grabs. Here’s a look at the current district standings around the region, with district and overall records for each team:

The district tournaments will be played the week of Feb. 26 at Garrard County (45th), East Jessamine (46th), Pulaski County (47th) and Wayne County (48th).

The 12th Region Tournaments begin the week of March 5 at Lincoln County (boys) and Pulaski County (girls).

The Girls Sweet Sixteen is March 14-17 in Bowling Green; the Boys Sweet Sixteen is March 21-24 in Lexington. The girls tourney is first this year because Rupp Arena is hosting NCAA Tournament games during the week that the boys tourney is usually played. Regional pairings for both tournaments will be drawn during a live telecast at 1 p.m. Friday that can be seen on WKYT-TV (Ch. 27).

    What is the schedule for the regional tournaments this year? I’ve seen some alteration in the 10th region and was curious what the 12th looked like.

    Nothing’s been set to my knowledge, but I think the tournaments will just be reversed from their usual schedule to accomodate having the girls state tourney first this year. That’s what’s been done in the past in the 12th, and I haven’t heard any discussion of anything different. That would mean the girls would play March 5-6 and 9-10, and the boys would play March 7-8 and 12-13.
