1. Bourbon County (22-5) - The Colonels knocked off rival Paris (81-73) and had a big second half to defeated Calvary Christian (64-42). Amirion Joyce continues to lead the Colonels. He had 26 points in the win over Paris. I have Bourbon County ranked 14th in my state media rankings. The Colonels lost the coin-flip in the 40th district, so they must play the #3 seed Montgomery County Indians in the first round of the district.

2. George Rogers Clark (21-7) - The Cardinals opened their new arena with a closer than expected 72-70 double-overtime win over Madison Southern. Lincoln Bush finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds. GRC then posted nice blowout wins over Knott County Central (70-50) and Bracken County (79-54). They won the coin-flip over Bourbon County and will play Paris in the first round of the 40th district.

3. Bishop Brossart (22-4) - The Mustangs defeated Villa Madonna (69-42), Calvary Christian (47-38) and Bracken County (81-61). Ethan Eilerman had a double-double (24 points, 10 rebounds) in the victory over Bracken County. If they can get past Mason County next week they will finish with a perfect record against 10th region competition.

4. Robertson County (20-5) - The Black Devils beat a couple of the low ranked 10th region teams last week and now have won 8 straight. They rolled past St. Patrick and Harrison County. Sophomore Justin Becker continues to be near the top of the state in scoring. He is pouring in 27 points per game.

5. Montgomery County (18-11) - The Indians have now won six in a row, thanks to last week's victories over Harrison County (70-49), Estill County (60-50), and Pendleton County (60-52). Rickey Lovette had a field day with 20 points and 17 rebounds in the win over Harrison County.

6. Mason County (15-10) - Great wins followed by baffling losses pretty much sums up the Royal's season so far. Two weeks ago they knocked off George Rogers Clark but last week they inexplicably lost to Fleming County (73-70). The Royals did pick up wins over Ryle (85-63) and Harrison County (84-63) to finish 1-2 on the week. The Royals certainly have talent, but may lack the consistency needed to put together a deep run in the 10th region tournament.

7. Campbell County (13-14) - The Camels had a rough week last week, falling to Simon Kenton (64-43) and Cooper (64-58) and defeating Pendleton County (78-49). The Camels were not able to continue their momentum gained from their February 6 win over Bourbon County. Freshman Aydan Hamilton scored 21 points in the win over the Wildcats. The Camels have some nice wins this season, but have not shown much consistency.

8. Paris (9-16) - The Greyhounds knocked off Augusta for the 2nd time this season, winning in overtime by a score of 61-57. They lost at Frankfort (52-45). Junior Ricqiece Washington is averaging 19 points per game.

9. Calvary Christian (12-14) - The Cougars continue to show signs of improvement. They lost competitive games to Covington Holy Cross (67-60) and Bishop Brossart (47-38). They hung around with Bourbon County for a half before falling 64-42. The Cougars look like they could give Campbell County a run for their money in the first round of the district tournament. Senior Noah Herald is averaging 13 boards a game.

10. Pendleton County (11-16) - The Wildcats lost all three games last week. Falling to Campbell County (78-49), Montgomery County (60-52), and Estill County (50-38). The tough schedule continues next week with Bourbon County and Paris.

11. Augusta (12-16) - The Panthers lost competitive home games to Paris (61-57 OT) and the struggling Scott Eagles (64-59). Augusta also suffered a surprising 72-65 loss to Villa Madonna.

12. Bracken County (10-17) - The Polar Bears had a rough schedule last week, and were blown out by Bishop Brossart and George Rogers Clark. Blake Reed continues to put up big numbers. He had 28 in the loss to the Mustangs.

13. Scott (5-20) - The Eagles picked up a big road victory (64-59) over Augusta, ending a 12 game losing streak. Scott does have a respectable 4-5 season record in 10th region games, including December wins over Mason County and Pendleton County.

14. Harrison County (4-23) - The Thoroughbreds were blown out by Montgomery County and Robertson County last week. They have been stuck in the 14th spot the last several weeks.

15. Nicholas County (4-23) - The Bluejackets have lost 5 straight and 12 of 13. Senior Morgan Planck is averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds.

16. St. Patrick (5-21) - The Saints have dropped 10 straight. They will be looking to pickup their first 10th region win at Nicholas County on February 20.
