The 15th District is widely considered one of the best basketball districts in the state as all four teams have the potential to beat any team on any given night. The Glasgow High School Scotties and the Barren County Trojans proved just how true that is during the regular season when the teams split their previous two meetings with each team winning on its home floor.
But none of that matters now as the grudge match between these two rivals will be Monday when the Scotties and the Trojans meet in the first round of the boys district tournament at Barren County High School. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
“We’re the No. 1 seed, but we’re playing a really good No. 4 seed. The district is so balanced, so I don’t think it matters what seed you are,” said Barren County coach Warren Cunningham. “We split the meetings during the regular season and that just shows how balanced the district is.
“I don’t think there is a lot of pressure being the No. 1 seed. We were the No. 2 last year and our guys had a desire to get to the regional tournament. We want to continue to play with that desire this season.”
“They’re the most experienced team,” said Glasgow coach John Tinsley. “They have everyone back from a team that won the district and beat a Glasgow team last year that was the No. 1 team in the region. What else can you say? I don’t know why everyone forgets that. They’re the favorites.”
