Marion County High School landed a good year to host the boys 5th Region basketball tournament. With over half the field with a legitimate shot at winning the title and earning a trip to the state tournament, it could result in a week of capacity crowds and last possession games.

North Hardin, Taylor County, Adair County, Bardstown and John Hardin could all be seen as serious contenders to earn a trip to Rupp Arena. LaRue County brings a stellar record but has struggled against some of the teams in the tournament field. Here's a look at the schedule.
