    The weather reared its ugly head last week, causing a few cancellations with not enough time in the season for rescheduling. Our number one still holds the top spot; and not a lot has changed from top to bottom.

    1. Campbell County (18-4, 9-0 region, 3-0 37th District). Campbell has now won 10 of 11; the only hiccup being a road loss at Walton-Verona. In fact, the Camels have lost three in-state games by a total of just nine points. Two of last week's three contests were cakewalks - a 32-point thumping of Harrison County and a 62-point demolition of Bracken County at home. Reid Jolly and Drew Wilson each scored 20 against the 'breds; and combined for another 40 against the Polar Bears and an even dozen players cracking the scoring column. The much-anticipated battle with Scott for district seeding honors was much closer, with Campbell ultimately prevailing 74-68 in a game in which they never trailed. Four games mark the schedule this week - Simon Kenton (H), Pendleton (A), Cooper (H) and Conner (A).

    2. Clark County (18-6, 8-1 region, 6-0 40th District). The Cardinals also secured their number one district seeding last week (in fact, it was already decided), although it may have been a bit closer than many expected. GRC squeaked by Bourbon County by a single point on the road, 65-64, in their only game last week. The Cards converted 16 of 17 charity tosses in the game, and Jared Wellman paced the squad with 24 points. Brennan Canada continued his double-double parade with 13 and 12. All of Coach Cook's contests over the course of the season's final two weeks are outside the region; and the squad faces Madison Southern, Knott County and Breathitt County - all on the road - this week.

    3. Bourbon County (18-9, 9-4 region, 2-4 40th District). Bourbon and Scott have flip-flopped spots the last couple of weeks; the Colonels won ol' pap's coin flip this time. Even though the Colonels lost their only game in week 10; it was the aforementioned 1-point loss to Clark. 7-15 free-throw shooting didn't help in this one; and the final score was as close as it was on the strength of a buzzer-beating three-pointer. Nakyir Joyce, Jace Wallace and CaMarr Myers had 17, 15 and 11. Bourbon hosts East Jessamine in their only week 11 action.

    4. Scott (12-9, 6-2 region, 1-1 37th District). Coach Fromeyer's Eagles went 1-2 last week; the two losses both at the hands of state top-20 teams. First was a 3-point loss to (still) undefeated John Hardin on the road; a game in which Chad Ohmer didn't play. Trey Meister, Nathan Joyce and Kyren Simpson provided the scoring punch in this one; scoring 52 of Scott's 69 points. Next was a 64-60 home win over Dixie Heights; then the close loss to Campbell County for district bragging rights. Ohmer played in this one; but re-aggravated his ankle and was forced to leave with 3 minutes remaining. Scott is busy this week, playing four games in five days - Brossart, Ryle, Simon Kenton and Conner. The Brossart game will decide the 2 seed in the 37th; but confidence is high that the Eagles and the Mustangs will meet in the semis regardless of the outcome. Scott did win the 10th region freshman tournament last week; 42-40 over Clark County in the finals.

    5. Bishop Brossart (16-8, 7-1 region, 0-1 37th District). The Mustangs continued their fine season last week with easy victories over Augusta and Newport Catholic. J.D. Schumacher led four in double figures with 20 and the team converted 27/50 (including 7/16 from distance ) from the field against the Panthers. The 'stangs got to the line early and often against NewCath, hitting 29 of 37; with Carson Schirmer converting 11 of 13 and Schumacher again topping the scoring column (21). Coach Code's crew faces off against district foes Scott and Calvary this week.

    6. Robertson County (17-6, 8-3 region, 2-1 38th District). The Devils dispatched Bluegrass United (Lexington home-school squad) by 34 and Berea by 20 in week 10 to retain their 6th-place spot in the rankings. Robertson went an outstanding 37-59 from the field, and hit 13 of their 22 triples against BU. Justin Becker and Sebastian Dixon went for 24 and 21. Becker and Alex Schalch combined for 49 points in the win over Berea; and they both recorded double-doubles as well. The Devils entertain St. Patrick and Harrison County this week.

    7. Montgomery County (13-11, 4-6 region, 2-3 40th District). The Indians got back on track last week with wins over Mason County (53-41) and Fleming County (71-34). Myron Ralls and Pharoah Davis went for 15 and 13 against the Royals; and MoCo hit 15 of 24 triples against Fleming. Paris (a critical district seeding matchup), Nicholas and Pendleton provide the competition in week 11.

    8a. Paris (6-14, 5-6 region, 1-4 40th district). The Greyhounds fell in both of last week's tilts; struggling to put the ball through the hoop in each. Paris went 14-44 from the field in a 50-40 loss to Dunbar; and pretty much repeated the performance in a 61-50 loss to Bourbon County; going just 15-49 from the floor. Jalen Byars did notch an impressive 26/13 against the Colonels. The Hounds look to get their shooting back on track Monday at home in the big district contest against Montgomery County; then play Augusta and Harrison on Tuesday and Wednesday; finishing the week on Saturday against Lawrence County.

    8b. Harrison County (7-15, 2-7 region, 1-2 38th District). The Breds fell hard against superior competition in both of last week's matchups; 72-40 at Campbell County and 75-51 at Madison Central. Quenton Turley was the only player to reach double figures against the Camels, and the team was held to 3-19 shooting from beyond the arc. Spencer Free and Turley cracked the double-figure mark against Central, but only gathered 13 rebounds as a team in that one. Week 11 will be busy - Williamstown, Paris and Robertson on the road, followed by Mason County on Saturday at home.

    10. Mason County (10-12, 4-6 region, 2-0 39th District). The Royals split a pair of games in week 10. First was a 12-point loss in Mt. Sterling to Montgomery County in which Mason again had trouble finding the basket (16-53; 3-19 from distance). Jaylen Lofton had 16; while Xylon Frey recorded a 13-10 double-double. The Royals followed up with a surprising 60-57 win at Ashland; with Jeremiah Jones netting a team-high 19. Three road games on this week's schedule - Highlands, Fleming and Harrison.

    11. Bracken County (11-13, 5-8 region, 2-1 39th district). First up was the 100-38 drubbing at the hands of region #1 Campbell County, but the Polar Bears bounced back with a 40-point thrashing of St.Patrick and a nip-and-tuck 64-61 defeat of Pendleton County. Kason Hinson and Collin Jefferson had 24 and 21 against the Saints. Tad Fisher provided the scoring (and rebounding) punch against the Wildcats with 27 and 12. Fleming County, Anderson County and Robertson County round out the week 11 schedule.

    12. Calvary Christian (15-10, 6-5 region, 2-2 37th district). The Cougars fell by a point at Bellevue last week, then followed up with a 66-60 defeat of Portland Christian and a 73-27 thrashing of Immaculate Conception (OH) in their home tourney. Mason Rusch tallied 67 points in the three games; while Cross Dugan notched a team-high 21 against IC. Dayton, Villa and Brossart are on tap this week.

    13. Pendleton County (10-13, 6-7 region, 3-1 38th District). Coach Belcher's Wildcats fell by 3 at the Igloo in their only action last week. Tredyn Thomas had 17 (7-8 from the field) and Cody Sullivan 16 (along with 11 boards) in the loss. Things don't get any easier this week - Campbell County at home and Montgomery County on the road.

    14. Augusta (8-14, 6-7 region, 3-1 39th District). The Panthers fell hard to Brossart in their lone week 10 contest; 82-51. Paris, Villa and Greenup County this week.

    15. Nicholas County (5-17, 1-10 region, 1-3 38th District). The Jackets lost two heartbreakers last week (75-74 to Berea; 78-71 to Sayre on OT) before dispatching Frankfort Christian by 39 last week. Dalton Davenport scorched the nets for 30 against the Royals of FC. Montgomery County (A) and Western Hills (H) this week.

    16. St. Patrick (1-24, 1-10 region, 0-5 40th District). The early January defeat of Silver Grove is a fading memory; and the Saints are currently on the wrong end of an eight-game streak; and could muster no more than 38 points in losses to Lewis County, Bracken County and Berea last week. Robertson County, Bellevue and Berea up this time around.

    17. Silver Grove (7-15, 0-4 region, 0-2 37th District). The Big Trains were 2-2 last week, losing big to Ludlow and Bellevue and defeating Heritage Academy and B3 (Big Bone Baptist home school). At last report, Spence Macke has taken over the state scoring lead. Williamstown on the road is the only game on the week 11 schedule.

    Games to watch:

    Montgomery County at Paris, 2/4
    Bishop Brossart at Scott, 2/4
    Simon Kenton at Campbell County, 2/5
    Harrison County at Paris, 2/6
    Harrison County at Robertson County, 2/8
    Cooper at Campbell County, 2/8
    Simon Kenton at Scott, 2/8

    Gredat job as usual Papa

    GRC's game against Bourbon Co was at GRC. We had beat them at Bourbon Co Jan 15th, 73-51. GRC was 100% from the Free throw line, 16-16, according to the radio announcers.


    I hate that the Mason Co and GRC game was canceled on Friday. Doesn't look like it will be made up.

    Congrats to the Scott Eagles on winning the 10th region Freshman tourney in OT over GRC.

    How is the 38th lining up for districts? Do the Breds throw Friday's game against the Devils to play Pendleton in the districts or do they try and win to play Robertson again in the districts.

    This is a great question. Let’s see beat Robertson County and then play them again at their place in the district or lose and play Pendleton County who by no fault of their own is a shell of what they were in December? What would you do??

    I always thought that the 38th drew (instead of seeding), but if not, it wouldn’t be the first time I’m wrong.

    If this is indeed how it lines up, I'm taking my chances with Pendleton in the opening game of districts.

    This is the first year of seeding.

    If Harrison wins then it will be a three way tie for the 2-4 seeds and thus a draw for those spots between Nicholas, Robertson, and Harrison.
