Trigg County drew a familiar foe in this week’s Second Region Tournament.

The Wildcats were scheduled to play the final game of the first round Tuesday night against Hopkins County Central at Tiger Gym in Hopkinsville.

Trigg County beat the Storm 64-54 Jan. 7 in Cadiz, with Wildcat guard Jeremy Jones pouring in a career-high 40 points in the win.

The Storm (13-17) were the runner-up in the Seventh District, losing to Providence 85-53 in the title game last week.

“That was about as good a draw as we could get,” said Wildcat head coach Bill Chumbler.

Trigg County won the January game with starting guard Rodney Davis (injury) and reserve center Kenny Turner, who had not rejoined the team at that time.

Chumbler said Turner was scheduled to see a doctor Monday after experiencing some soreness in his knee in Trigg’s win over Caldwell County last week.

Trigg County is making their third straight appearance in the region tournament for the first time since 1981.

If the Wildcats win, they will face the winner of the University Heights-Union County game Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

Henderson County and host Hopkinsville played Monday’s opener, while Fifth District runner-up Caldwell County played Providence in the Monday nightcap.

The championship game of the region will be Saturday night.
