    The 10th didn't exactly distinguish itself in the week 5 holiday tournaments - with one exception. Our "powerhouses" aren't so powerful at the moment - maybe a new calendar year will ring in better results.

    1. Campbell County (9-3, 2-0 region, 0-0 district). The Camels went 2-1 in the Central Bank Classic at Lexington Christian, routing Oldham County and West Jessamine; while falling to the host school in a two-point nailbiter. Big man Reid Jolly is still averaging a double-double; while senior guard Drew Wilson actually gets to the line a bit more often and averages over 19PPG. Campbell begins its regional schedule in earnest this week. facing off against Mason County and 37th district foe Bishop Brossart.

    2. Clark County (10-4, 2-1 region, 1-0 district). GRC finished 6th in the Traditional Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic last week. Their first matchup was a thriller; falling to eventual tourney runnerup Newport in overtime 65-62. According to BGP crack reporting staff at the scene, the Cardinals were ahead by 3 and shooting the 1-and-1 with less than 1:40 to play in the OT, but failed to convert and were plagued by turnovers down the stretch. Brennan Canada joined the ,000-point club in the loss. Wins over Knoxville's Webb H.S. and Bryan Station got the Cards into the 5th place game, where they fell to Frederick Douglass 66-58. The Cardinals entertain Paris on Friday, then face off against Wayne County in the Patriot Classic at Lincoln County on Saturday.

    3. Bourbon County (9-5, 4-1 region, 1-1 district). Coach Campbell's Colonels ran the table last week at the Mountain Schoolboy Classic in Pike County (Belfry) and as a result, jumps one spot in this week's rankings. Their only regional blemish continues to be a head-scratching loss to Montgomery County at home in early December. Through 9 games of stats, Bourbon had four players averaging in double figures - seniors CaMarr Myers, Jace Wallace, Billy Murphy and junior Nakyir Joyce. Calvary Christian and Powell County are on tap this week.

    4. Scott (6-5, 4-0 region, 0-0 district). As mentioned above, Scott drops a spot (to Bourbon) and was idle last week. The Eagles return to the hardwood on Friday against Highlands and hope that Chad Ohmer - who has missed five games - all of which were losses - gets back to full strength soon.

    5. Bishop Brossart (8-6, 1-0 region, 0-0 district). The Mustangs went 2-1 in Henry County's tournament last week, falling in the final by 8 to a nice Grant County squad. The Mustangs crushed Garrard County in the opener, then defeated the host school by sixteen behind J.D. Schumacher's 18 points and an impressive 9 steals from Carson Schirmer. Holmes and Campbell County are up this week.

    6. Pendleton County (9-7, 5-3 region, 3-0 district). It's tough placing the Wildcats accurately in week 5, as they were without the services of all-stater Dontaie Allen for all three of their games in the Ashland Invitational tournament. I think we all know that Pendleton is a COMPLETELY different team with number 11 on the court; and perhaps the 6th-place ranking is a bit artificially high based on the body of work early on. Cody Sullican paced the Cats with 20 in the opening A.I.T. loss to Seneca; but no one on the squad other than D. A. averages double figures. At Sayre this Friday; the Cats' only action in week 6.

    7. Montgomery County (6-6, 2-3 region, 1-1 district). The Indians went 2-1 in their own Gateway Classic in week 5; defeating Rockcastle by 7 and Middlesboro before falling to Frankfort 79-63. Another squad with a one-game week; at Madison Southern on Friday.

    8. Mason County (6-7, 3-2 region, 2-0 district). Coach Kirk's charges also went 2-1 at Montgomery County's tourney, losing the opener to Frankfort 94-68, but bouncing back against West Carter and Rockcastle County; with balanced scoring as four Royals reached double figures against the Rock. Mason County's only week 6 action is at regional number one Campbell County.

    9. Robertson County (10-4, 4-2 region, 1-1 district). The Black Devils stepped onto the big stage at LexCath's holiday affair, falling big to Simon Kenton (101-65) and being harassed by the 'neers' pressure; then losing by 43 to Frederick Douglass (no slouch) before getting a big win over 3-10 Hancock County. St. Patrick and Augusta (away and home) this Thursday and Friday.

    10. Paris (3-9, 2-2 region, 1-2 district). The Greyhounds were idle last week, and return to action at Clark County on Friday.

    11. Harrison County (3-10, 0-4 region, 0-2 district). Harrison won their first contest at the Gateway Classic, defeating West Carter 59-54 before being unceremoniously thumped by Frankfort and falling to Middlesboro. Spencer Free is one of the region's top scorers at nearly 24 per game. A tough stretch of games begins this week; home to Frederick Douglass and at Beechwood.

    12. Calvary Christian (7-3, 3-12 region, 1-0 district). Idle last week, the Cougars take on Bourbon County and {Portland Christian this week. CC puts up over 70 points per game, but the schedule is what it is.

    13. Bracken County (5-7, 2-4 region, 1-1 district). Coach Hinson's Polar Bears split a pair of games against Ohio competition last week, falling to Cincinnati Mariemont before rallying to defeat Cincinnati Gamble Montessori behind guards Jhace Cummins and Kason Hinson. The Bears have already equaled last season's win total, and look to get to .500 with home games against Bellevue and Williamstown.

    14. Nicholas County (4-8, 1-5 region, 1-2 district). The Bluejackets went 2-1 at Williamstown last week, eclipsing the 90-point mark in their victories over Dayton and Dawson Springs. Nicholas travels to Bath County on Friday.

    15. Augusta (2-11, 2-4 region, 1-1 district). Augusta lost to the same two squads that Bracken County faced in Ripley, and are on the wrong end of a four-game skid. Robertson County and West Union (Ohio) this week.

    16a. Silver Grove (3-7, 1-1 region, 1-1 district). The Big Trains were idle last week and travel to Maysville to take on St. Patrick on Saturday to see which of the two teams will stay out of the cellar.

    16b. St. Patrick (0-15, 0-4 region, 0-2 district). The Saints are improving, but still don't have a win to show for it. They have a real chance on Saturday when they lace them up against Silver Grove after hosting Robertson County on Thursday.

    Here's the stat of the week. While it's no surprise that UK commit Dontaie Allen leads the state in scoring at 42.9 PPG and rebounds at 14.2; St. Patrick's Riley Mastin - an 8th grader - leads the Commonwealth in free-throw percentage at 93.3 (42-45).

    Is GRC the team we thought they were? They started the year ranked pretty highly in the state and now have 2 losses to teams I think most people thought they would win (Newport & F. Douglass). I know it’s a long season, and Coach Cook is still working on his team, but I expected more from GRC than to have 4 losses being just 14 games in. Thoughts?

    I still think it's Campbell, Clark and everyone else. Woodford and Douglass were mild surprises to me; Campbell and Newport not so much. I really think that Clark wins 6 or 7 out of 10 against the first two and splits with the second two. Just didn't get it done when they played the one time this season.

    16b. St. Patrick (0-15, 0-4 region, 0-2 district). The Saints are improving, but still don't have a win to show for it. They have a real chance on Saturday when they lace them up against Silver Grove after hosting Robertson County on Thursday.

    Here's the stat of the week. While it's no surprise that UK commit Dontaie Allen leads the state in scoring at 42.9 PPG and rebounds at 14.2; St. Patrick's Riley Mastin - an 8th grader - leads the Commonwealth in free-throw percentage at 93.3 (42-45).
    I have a correction for Brossart. The 9 steals were actually done by Bryson Weiland.

    Nice job Mcpapa. Allen and Ohmer injuries sort of separated the pack of two plus the rest a little. When/if they get healthy, going to jam up 3 thru 6 even more. Bourbon is sure starting to get interesting. Thanks for your work.

    Don't know whether the Bourbon County 5 point loss to Butler or their 16 point win over PRP was the most impressive performance in the Henry Clay Invitational followed by 3 more wins in the Mountain Classic. The Colonels appear to be coming strong as they must be jelling as a unit. Wondering if these guys might be turning the dialogue from two to three and the rest of the region status?
