1.Perry County Central (14-5):
The Commodores are running wild on everyone, Perry Central started their running streak when they ran through the mountain classic and the streak carried over to Powell County and Anderson County games. Perry Central defeated the Pirates 85-72 and defeated the Bearcats 80-74. Can the Commodoers keep the streak going this week when they play Letcher Central, Wolfe County and Casey County?
2.Knott County Central (10-6):
The Patriots started the season off on a heart start but have since took a wrong turn, losing 5 of their last 7 games. The Patriots will be home all this week but they won’t have any easy competition as they face the likes of Cordia, Johnson Central and Campbell County TN. Can the Patriots get things turned around or will they continue heading down the wrong road?
The Lions have made history once again, winning their second straight 14th Region All “A” Classic for the second time in school history.

4.Letcher County Central (11-5):
The Cougars have hit a rocky road as of late going 4-3 in their last 7 games. Will the Cougars put a win streak together this week with the likes of Buckhorn, Perry central and Estill County on their schedule or will they hit a skid streak?
5.Powell County (13-5):
The Pirates are in sole position of the #1 seed in their district. The Pirates picked up a big 69-65 victory over #6 Estill County. Powell County led most of the game and led by as many as 7 but Estill County would make a run late and take a 5 point led but not enough as the Pirates would go on to win the game and go 3-0 in district play.
6.Estill County (10-5):
Engineers started the season off with one of the best starts in school history winning their first 4 straight games and going 8-2 into the Cumberland Falls Invitational Tournament but have since hit a hard spot losing 3 of their last 5 games including a heart breaking 69-65 loss @ Powell County. Can the Engineers re-group this week and get back on track or will the hard spot continue to grow?
7.Wolfe County (9-8):
Wolfe County had a rough start to the season, key injuries that sent the Wolves down the wrong road but now with everyone back, can the Wolves get back on the right path and make a run towards the end of the season and in district play?
8.Leslie County (10-4):
The Eagles have been soaring as of late, winning 3 of their last 4 games. 2 of those 3 wins have came against both Clay County and Hazard. Can the Eagles continue to soar or will their nest get disturbed?

The Dawgs have hit a skid as of late, losing 4 straight countering their 5 game win streak.

Can the Dawgs get back on the right track?
11.Breathitt County (10-8):
