1) Somerset (13-2) – Somerset stays on top this week with wins over McCreary County Central and Casey County. Kade Grundy saw limited action between the two games, not playing against McCreary and only scoring 8 against Casey County. The All A Regional starts this week at Burgin and the Briar Jumpers open up against Washington County.
2) Danville (13-4) – Danville is knocking on the door of the top spot and it may very well be the case that next week’s number 1 is the All A Regional Champ. Danville knocked off district foes Boyle County and Lincoln County as well as blowing out Casey County. They open their venture in the All A with Danville Christian.
3) Lincoln County (10-4) – The Patriots slipped by with a 3 point win over West Jessamine before dropping an overtime loss to Danville. Their schedule doesn’t get any easier as they go on this week to face Pulaski County and Boyle County. The Danville loss puts Lincoln behind the eight ball in terms of getting the number 1 seed in the district, so the Boyle game has now become incredibly important.
4) Pulaski County (12-3) – The Maroons stay put this week with wins over Central Kentucky HomeSchool and Rockcastle County. They have a big week ahead with games against Lincoln County and Southwestern. Pulaski has four averaging in double figures in points – Zach Travis, Colton Fraley, Caleb Sloan and KJ Combs.
5) Southwestern (11-6) – Southwestern defeated Garrard County and McCreary Central before losing by 1 in overtime to North Laurel. They face Estill County and Pulaski County as well as Tates Creek. Brayden Sims continues to average a double-double with 12.3 points per game and 10.4 rebounds per game.
6) West Jessamine (9-7) – West dropped a close one at Lincoln County but did get a road win at Model. They have one game this week, a trip to the other side of Nicholasville against East Jessamine. A win puts them in the driver’s seat in the district.
7) Mercer County (9-6) – Mercer County beat Garrard County in their first 2A sectional game but were knocked out in the next game 60-57 to juggernaut Lexington Catholic in what was almost a huge upset. The Titans play Boyle County and Corbin this week.
