    Another exciting week has come and gone in the always tough 11th region. Some big time district tilts have made these next few weeks interesting and we have an All A champion in the 11th Region who has a great shot to bring home the All A title by the end of the week.

    Team of the Week - Madison Central
    The Indians picked up 3 big wins this week over Bryan Station, West Jessamine, and Lincoln County. The Indians have reached .500 on the season and look to be primed to win ANOTHER district title in the 44th.

    Player of the Week - Eric Powell - Lafayette
    Eric Powell had a big week at the Toyota Classic for the Generals. He was on fire from 3 all week and almost led Lafayette to a huge comeback win over the host Cardinals but fell just short. Great week for Eric.

    Team Rankings

    1. Lexington Catholic - The Knights got a big time district win over Paul Laurence Dunbar by 1 on their home court Thursday night and then followed that up by beating a good Taylor County team on Saturday. Luke Johnson, Zan Payne, and Peter Whitman continue to lead the Knights. They have now won 7 in a row and 10 out of their last 11!

    2. Scott County - The Cardinals won another Toyota Classic this past week with wins over Rockcastle County, Lafayette, and Christian Life out of Texas. Michael Moreno continues his stellar play. Scott County hosts Franklin County and North Laurel this week.

    3. Lexington Christian - The Eagles collected another 11th Region All A Championship this past week and did it with little resistance. They open up the All A State Tournament in Frankfort Thursday night against Louisville Holy Cross and would be considered the favorite to win it all in my opinion.

    4. Dunbar - The Bulldogs only had 1 game this past week and dropped a 1 point decision on the road against Lexington Catholic. This loss snapped the Bulldogs 15 game 43rd district winning streak and ties the top of the standings in the district. 3 big games for the Bulldogs this week with Lafayette, Bryan Station, and Waggener.

    5. Lafayette - The Generals played some tough competition this past week at the Toyota Classic and almost pulled off a frantic comeback against Scott County. On the schedule this week is Dunbar and Henry Clay, both at home.

    6. Madison Central - The Indians picked up 3 big wins this week over Bryan Station, West Jessamine, and Lincoln County. The Indians have reached .500 on the season. This week the Indians head out on the road first against Tates Creek and then to Louisville to face a top 5 Trinity team.

    7. Madison Southern - The Eagles long winning streak came to an end this week with a close loss to Lafayette at the Toyota Classic, but they bounced back with wins over Rockcastle County and Wayne County to improve to 14-4 overall. This week the Eagles face Rockcastle County, George Rogers Clark, and West Jessamine.

    8. Henry Clay - Not a terrible week for the Blue Devils going 1-1. They started off the week with a win over city rival Tates Creek and then lost a tough road game to Ballard. This week they host Trinity before heading to Lafayette.

    9. Bryan Station - The Defenders split this week first losing a close one at Madison Central and then beating Woodford County. Terrance Clayton-Murphy has missed some games recently with an injury but Eric "Boss" Boone has stepped up and just missed a triple double against Woodford County. This week Bryan Station faces Sayre and Dunbar.

    10. Sayre - The Spartans gave LCA all they wanted for about 3 quarters in the 11th Region All A Final on Saturday but came up short. The Spartans continue to improve weekly. This week they head to Bryan Station for their only game this week.

    11. Tates Creek - Tates Creek dropped a close one against Henry Clay early in the week and then fell again to George Rogers Clark. This week is no easier with matchups against Madison Central and Lexington Catholic.

    12. Franklin County - The Flyers had a tough week going 1-2 with losses against Shelby County and Boyle County but did pick up a win over Atherton. This week they head to Scott County and Western Hills.

    13. Woodford County - The Yellow Jackets went 2-1 on the week with wins over Western Hills and Owen County but dropped a close one to Bryan Station. Big district game for the Jackets this week against Frankfort they also face Collins and Harrison County.

    14. Frankfort - The Panthers were able to beat Model this week before dropping a close one to Sayre in the All A semi finals. This week they host Nicholas County before heading to Woodford County for a big district matchup.

    15. Model - The Patriots dropped their only game this past week to Frankfort in a close one. Up next for Model are trips to Garrard County and Bourbon County.

    16. Western Hills - The Wolverines picked up a win over Bullitt Central but got smoked by Woodford County. This week they head to Trimble County before hosting Shelby County and Franklin County.

    17. Berea - The Pirates lost bad to LCA but did pick up a win over St. Patrick late in the week. Up next is Jackson County and Middlesboro.

    Great write-up.
    Central is starting to look a lot more comfortable on the offensive end, and with Cozart anchoring down the defensive end, things are starting to click. Friday at Trinity will be a big test for them, I don't see us going in and winning, but if we play them close, that tells me they are on the right track to finish out the season.

    Cozart is close to getting a triple double in points, rebounds and blocks every night. Dustin Geralds has been starting to shoot the ball well and scoring over the last week and Isaiah Minter looks to be getting his confidence back and comfortably running the point after a knee injury this summer.

    It should be a great last month or so, and I think we could defiantly ruin a higher seeded teams day come regional tournament time. Time will tell.
