10th Region Week 3 Review

    1. Campbell County (5-0, 1-0 region). In order to be the man, you have to beat the man; and the Camels have already taken on the other presumptive regional favorite in Clark County and come out on top. Their only loss on the season was to Walnut Ridge of Columbus. Reid Jolly has emerged as an early 10th region first-team selection; and averages a double-double (19.3 and 10.7) while shooting nearly 55% from the field. Senior guard Drew Wilson leads the squad in scoring at 21.5 (59% FG). Their biggest test this week will come at 8-1 Beechwood.

    2. George Rogers Clark (5-2, 2-1 region). The Cardinals started the season ranked in the BGP state top 20; and although they dropped out this week on the heels of their second loss of the season at home to Woodford County; they're still the class of their district and (to me) the clear #2 in the 10th; bolstered by 36 (Paris away) and 28 (Doss at Mason County) wins on consecutive nights last week. A balanced scoring attack (five players between 7.6 and 12.3 PPG) keeps opposing defenses honest.

    This is where the rankings get interesting. You can probably throw the next 5 or 6 teams in the proverbial hat, draw them out and do a better job than me.

    3. Scott (4-4, 4-0 region). The Eagles look to right a 3-game skid this week at Simon Kenton. They have marched unscathed through the 10th; their last win a convincing 32-point rout of Mason County. Their most recent loss to Holy Cross has them teetering on the edge of their current ranking; however.

    4. Pendleton County (7-3, 5-3 region). I know, Coach Belcher's Wildcats got thumped on Saturday at the hands of Bourbon County; but I'm chalking that one up to Mr. Everything Dontaie Allen (43.9/15.4; 93/125 FTs) not getting much support in that one (Allen scored ALL of PC's second-half points). Pendleton's other games last week were 36, 39 and 36-point wins over some of the region's lesser lights. St. Henry, Bryan Station and (especially) Cooper at home on back-to-back-to-back nights/afternoons should be must-see.

    5. Bourbon County (3-4, 3-1 region). Let's show Coach Campbell's Colonels some love this week and slide them into the 5 slot. A puzzling loss to Montgomery County (their only loss in the 10th to date) was followed up with an 18-point thrashing of Pendleton County on the road.

    6. Mason County (3-4, 2-2 region). First-year coach Kirk's Royals seem to have righted the ship after a dismal start, reeling off three straight routs over Bracken County, East Carter and Robertson County at The Fieldhouse. Hot shooting and pressure defense have carried Mason County over the last three games.

    7. Bishop Brossart (5-3, 0-0 region). The Mustangs have yet to play a 10th region opponent and as such are tough to get a handle on for purposes of this review. They've handled the teams they should handle with relative ease; and have been thumped by superior competition. The duo of Schumacher and Eilerman (the elder) pace the 'stangs at 14.9 and 13.5, respectively.

    8. Montgomery County (2-4, 2-2 region). Like Mason County, Coach Daniel's Indians finally got on track last week with solid wins at Bourbon County and Bracken County. Myron Ralls, Pharoah Davis (GOTTA love the name) and Will Cockrell provide a nice three-headed scoring machine.

    9. Robertson County (5-2, 3-2 region). The Devils stepped up in competition this week and it showed, with a rout of Nicholas County sandwiched between big losses to Pendleton County and Mason County. This writer has said all along that Coach Kelsch's charges are a year away from making real noise in the region; and they do have the talent to turn some heads with Schalch, Becker and Dixon - all underclassmen - averaging double-digit scoring.

    10. Calvary Christian (6-2, 2-0 region). Let's give another team some props with a top-ten slot. Calvary's all-region candidate Mason Rusch (27.4 PPG) has been ably supported by Josh Moran and Cross Dugan.

    11. Harrison County (1-6, 1-3 region). The 'breds need to get back to full strength to challenge in the 38th; and are 0-6 since starting the season with a win over Breathitt County at home.

    12. Paris (1-7, 1-2 region). The Hounds look to snap a 5-game skid at Nicholas County on Tuesday. Shooting seems to be an issue so far this season (38.3% overall, 23.4% 3-PT and 58.3% FT).

    13. Bracken County (3-4, 2-4 region). The Polar Bears bounced back with a convincing win over St. Patrick after 33 (Mason County) and 23 (Montgomery County) losses earlier in the week. Freshman guard Kason Hinson (yes; they're related) is emerging as a solid PG option.

    14. Augusta (1-7, 1-3 region). The Panthers were blitzed in their only two contests last week (Pendleton County and R.U.L.H. Ripley, OH). They look to get back to their winning ways tonight against St. Patrick.

    15. Nicholas County (1-5, 1-4 region). The Jackets are EXTREMELY young this season, with four middle-schoolers listed on the roster.

    16. Silver Grove (3-5, 0-0 region). The other 10th region squad that hasn't faced regional competition (Brossart being the other). the Trains took one step forward - a squeaker over Dayton - and one step back - a blowout at the hands of Ludlow. A completely different team when Macke is in the lineup.

    17. St. Patrick (0-8, 0-2 region). Still looking for their first win, the Saints' third-leading scorer is seventh grader Jaylan Rigdon (again, yes - they're related).

    Nice job, mcpapa. Can't remember last time Paris and Harrison have been this deep in the season with a combined 2 victories and rated this low. What's happened to our powerful 10th?

    So hard to rank these teams after the top 3, but you've done a nice job here, O ancient one.

    I think the top 4 are solid. After that pull them out of a hat.

    Everyone, we need a replacement for the 10th Region. This is a paid position. Either send me a PM or email me at: theguru@fuse.net

    Scrap and Bones Joyce. No, that isn't their real name but what they go by. They were both at Frederick Douglass last year. Athletic guards and good defenders. Definitely improved the Colonels depth and skill level.

    According to Bourbon's most recent stats report, the tandem is averaging 17 PPG between the two of them. That's not counting what they did in last night's 90-71 win over Harrison County.

    I think Wallace is a transfer also, might of sat out last year.

    Have not seen Bourbon play since Lamont Campbell became coach. This thread made me look up his bio and watch a short interview. Got to say, this young man might be an up and comer in the 10th. His playing career is evidence that he should know the game and his interview personality (if genuine) sounds like he would play a fun style to play. Putting up 60 shots a game tells me lots of pressing, run and gun. The Colonels might be jumping into the 10th Region mix and replacing Scott before long. Of course, this comes from the same guy that thought Robertson County would arrive sooner, rather than later.

    I missed that Chad Ohmer has been out for Scott during their three loss streak. Can someone catch me current? Injury? Sickness? Other? Love his hustle. Must be in the DNA.
