    I think that the thing that hurts Estill County would be their six losses. Not one of those is to a ranked team.

    Compare that to Pulaski County who barely got the last spot. They have seven losses, including to the current #2, #9, #15 and #16 (twice) ranked teams.

    The Estill game was a 20 point turn around in the 4th quarter. I hope those games are in the past. Pulaski Co played one of their better games of the year on Sunday. They will have the chance to prove their ranking again with games against Bryan Station and Corbin over the next few weeks.

    Sometimes you just have to play the cards you're dealt. Hopefully, whichever of them make it to the Sweet 16 will get a chance to prove themselves there.

    No angst from me, I completely understand where you're coming from. It's hard to get much recognition if you're in the 16th region because honestly it's one of if not the weakest region in the state most years. Ashland's best win this season is probably the 20+ point win over Capital High School from Charleston, Wv and I have no idea where they would stand against Kentucky teams.

A six point loss early in the season to top 15 GRC and a four point loss to rival Boyd County in round three of this seasons series (it's hard to beat a good team three times in a row) aren't what I would consider bad losses at all.
    Ashland losing to Mason really hurts their resume.
