    Not a lot of activity to report as just about all weekend action was postponed or cancelled last week due to inclement weather. A couple of key matchups played out in the All-A tournament in Carlisle. One of our small schools looks to get key players in the lineup, with big potential impact on how the 39th district ultimately plays out. Hopefully the weather cooperates this week and some impact players can get well.

    1. Campbell County (16-2, 7-0 region). The Camels won a pair of laughers last week and are currently riding a 5-game winning streak. First was a 39-point drubbing of Western Hills (OH), followed up with a 30-point romp over 9th-region opponent Conner. Eight Camels hit the scoring column in the Conner win; paced by Reid Jolly with 20, Tanner Clos with 15 and Joel Day with 13. All three currently average over 14 PPG. Three home games are on tap this week - Bracken County, a HUGE district seeding contest with Scott, and Walton-Verona the next day.

    2. Clark County (14-3, 7-1 region). Coach Cook's Cards kept rolling in their only action of the week, taking Harrison County to the proverbial woodshed to the tune of 78-29. The Cardinals were dominant in all facets of the game - outperforming the Breds in every department - rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, field goal percentage (a scintillating 28/43), you name it. Will Philpot had 25, Ryan Cooper 15 and Brennan Canada 11. Three games are on the schedule this week - Bourbon County away, followed by Rowan County and Pulaski County on Friday and Saturday.

    3. Scott (12-4, 3-2 region). Scott inches up in the rankings on the strength of a 75-73 win on the road at Pendleton County and a 78-50 dismantling of a decent Boone County team the next day at Boone. Scott's only losses in the 10th have been a 2-point loss to Clark on a neutral court and a 1-point last-second defeat at the hands of Mason County at The Fieldhouse. Chad Ohmer poured in 30 against the Wildcats, with junior Trey Meister chipping in 14. Meister took the scoring honors for Scott against the Rebels with 20 in a game that saw 14 Eagles hit the scoring column and obtain an early third-quarter running clock. Scott's only game this week is the aforementioned matchup with Campbell County.

    4. Pendleton County (11-5, 8-2 region). The Wildcats dropped their second 10th-region tilt in their only action last week, falling to Scott 75-73. Dontaie Allen had 36 and 9, with Adam Adtrobus contributing a 17/11 double-double. Pendleton looks to snap a 2-game losing streak with Williamstown and Frederick Douglass on tap this week.

    5. Paris (11-4, 6-3 region). Paris advanced to the 10th Region finals by winning a close one over Bishop Brossart in the semis last week, 54-49. Eric Johnson had to sit most of the first half with foul trouble, but scored all 16 of his points in the second half. Travis Strings matched Johnson with 16 and Taleigh Adams stepped up with a dozen. Marcus Ashford still out nursing an injury. The Hounds meet Robertson County for the All-A title on Wednesday evening in Carlisle.

    6. Mason County (10-6, 3-3 region). The Royals pulled away from Fleming County 70-58 in their only action last week (Ashland and Lexington Catholic games were cancelled due to weather). Leevi Dunaway had 17 and 6, Caleb Boyd 15 and 8, and Jayden Steward led in scoring and rebounds with 22 and 13. No 10th region action this week with Greenup County, Ripley and Lewis County coming up.

    7. Bishop Brossart (9-7, 3-2 region). The Mustangs hung tough against Paris until the bitter end in the 10th All-A semis, ultimately falling 54-49. Zach Hamberg scored all 15 of his team-leading points on three-pointers, with J.D. Schumacher and Bryce Donnelly adding 9 each. Harrison County, Holmes and Covington Holy Cross grace the 'stangs' schedule this week.

    8. Montgomery County (7-8, 2-4 region). The Indians won their only game last week, dispatching the Braves of Grant County 64-59 in a contest that saw Grant cut a 20-point lead to 2. MoCo looks to hit the .500 mark with games at Estill County, at Bourbon County, and at Clark County to take on Knott County Central.

    9. Robertson County (10-6, 7-1 region). Let's give Coach Kelsch and his Black Devils some love this week. His squad has won four straight and played themselves into the All-A championship game this Wednesday by virtue of taking down Augusta 60-49 last week in the semis. Mason Burden's four-point play helped break open a nip-and-tuck affair as he led the Devils with 20 and big man Alex Schalch added 15. Devils play Augusta and Berea after the All-A final.

    10. Bourbon County (7-8, 3-5 region). The Colonels were victorious over Powell County 58-49 in their only contest last week.They face 40th district foes Clark County and Montgomery County at home this week prior to traveling to Cordia on Saturday.

    11. Harrison County 6-9, 2-3 region). The Thorobreds fell hard to Clark County last Tuesday, only managing 8 points in the second half. At Bishop Brossart on Tuesday in this week's only action.

    12. Augusta (7-8, 3-6 region). Stephen Cordle tallied 18 and Cody Ripato 11 in the loss to Robertson County in the All-A. Walton-Verona, Robertson County again and Fleming County this week.

    13. St. Patrick (6-11, 2-5 region). Coach Rigdon's Saints dominated Silver Grove 76-34 in their only game last week. Looks like Isaiah Garrison and Ben Swolsky will be suiting up soon - perhaps as early as tomorrow's home game with Calvary Christian.

    14. Nicholas County (4-8, 2-6 region). The Jackets are on the wrong end of a 4-game streak, falling by 17 to Robertson County in last week's All-A action. Williamstown and Bracken County this week.

    15. Calvary Christian (8-8, 2-6 region). Close 3-point loss to Villa Madonna sees the Cougars hope to right the ship against St. Patrick, Heritage Academy and Ludlow.

    16. Bracken County (2-12, 0-7 region). No games last week for the Polar Bears, who face Campbell County, Nicholas County and Dayton this week.

    17. Silver Grove (0-11, 0-4 region). Trains lost by 42 to St. Patrick and look to enter the winning column for the first time with games against SCPA (OH), Whiteoak (OH) and Riverside Christian.

    Player of the Week: Let's go against the grain and recognize one of last week's unsung heroes. The nod goes to Trey Meister, who was a big contributor in Scott's wins over Pendleton and Boone.

    Games to watch:

    Scott at Campbell County, this week's 10th region game of the week, 1/19
    Paris - Robertson County, 10th region All-A championship, 1/17
    Pulaski County at Clark County, 1/20
    Holy Cross at Bishop Brossart, 1/20
    Montgomery County at Bourbon County, 1/19

    Just hope a lot of these games don't get canceled because of weather tomorrow. The Friday and Saturday games looks like mother nature will let them be played.

    A game to watch this week is when Paris heads to Bryan Station Friday night. It will be a tough test for the hounds. Eric Johnson and Eric Boone are old aau buddies. They played together for about 5 years on kywa magic then on Louisville magic. Should be a great high paced game
