The state Sweet Sixteen boys high school tournament got underway on Wednesday. By the end of week, one team will be crowned state champs.
The first game tipped off at noon on Wednesday between University Heights and the favored Lexington Catholic High School.
The last time these two teams met was in 1992 and Catholic's coach, Brandon Salsman, was a player for the Knights. University Heights won that game, but Lexington Catholic fans say this is their year.
On paper, it was a pretty even match-up. Lexington Catholic came into the game with a 30 -3 record and University Heights had a 30-4 record.
In the end, Catholic came out on top, 69-54.
The second game tipped off at 1:30 between Central High School from the 6th region and Owensboro from the 3rd region.
Owensboro won that contest easily, 63-48.
The evening session on Wednesday includes Jeffersontown and Paintsville, tipping off at 6:30 and Holmes and Bardstown scheduled for 8:00.
