1) Bowling Green (5-0) - 12/8 61-35 W at Elizabethtown, 12/11 66-45 W Henderson County, 12/12 69-62 OT W at Hopkinsville
Previous Rank: 1
This Week: 12/15 at #10 Greenwood, 12/18 vs. Fern Creek (at Fairdale)

The Purples kept up their unbeaten streak with the obvious most impressive game being a road win at Hopkinsville in overtime. The Purples were still without DeAngelo Wilson, but managed to get a rare win over Hopkinsville in Tigers Gym.

2) Barren County (4-0) - 12/8 63-47 W at #13 Allen County-Scottsville, 12/11 52-44 W #9 Monroe County
Previous Rank: 2
This Week: 12/15 vs. Caverna, 12/17 at Edmonson County, 12/18 at #4 Russellville

The Trojans continue to match pace with the Purples, although they had to tough out a closer than expected game with Monroe County. They have a top matchup on Friday with rising Russellville.

3) Franklin-Simpson (5-0) - 12/8 52-51 W #6 South Warren, 12/11 84-46 W #12 Logan County
Previous Rank: 6
This Week: 12/18 at #13 Allen County-Scottsville, 12/20 vs. Nelson County (at Hancock County)

Tavin Lovan has been slacking off, averaging only 21.8 PPG. Carlesso Doaks has been a big help, adding in 10.8. They gained a big win over South Warren last Tuesday when Lovan trumped Gumm and Stacker.

4) Russellville (2-0) - 12/8 76-60 W at #8 Warren East, 12/11 71-44 W at #15 Todd County Central
Previous Rank: 7
This Week: 12/15 vs. #13 Allen County-Scottsville, 12/18 vs. #2 Barren County

The Panthers made a resounding statement with their thumping of unbeaten Warren East, and will look to make an even bigger one when they host Barren County on Friday. District 13 is back!

5) Warren Central (3-2) - 12/8 71-69 OT W Owensboro, 12/11 53-81 L Christian County (at Hopkinsville)
Previous Rank: 5
This Week: 12/14 vs. #12 Logan County, 12/19 vs. Christ Presbyterian Academy (TN) (at Bardstown), 12/20 vs. John Hardin (at Bardstown)

The Dragons suffered a brutal loss to Christian County after a tight overtime win against Owensboro. The schedule will stay tough in Bardstown.

6) Warren East (5-1) - 12/8 60-76 L #7 Russellville, 12/11 80-65 W at #6 South Warren, 12/12 68-56 W #13 Allen County-Scottsville

This Week: 12/15 at Grayson County

Warren East suffered a big loss to Russellville, but gained a rare road win over South Warren to move to 1-0 in the district. The Raiders will make that trade very time.

7) South Warren (2-3) - 12/8 51-52 L at #5 Franklin-Simpson, 12/11 65-80 L #8 Warren East
Previous Rank: 4
This Week: 12/18 vs. #10 Greenwood

The Spartans may be having a little deja vu to last year, when they'd show they could play with anyone, but not win the games they needed. South has a lot of potential, but they need to start acting on it.

8) Russell County (2-1) - 12/8 60-66 L at #10 Greenwood, 12/11 67-48 W #14 Glasgow
Previous Rank: 3
This Week: 12/14 at #16 Metcalfe County, 12/15 at #11 Monroe County, 12/18 vs. #9 Clinton County

The loss to Greenwood at home was rather stunning. They'll try to erase that memory with a pair of district games this week.

9) Clinton County (3-3) - 12/8 49-47 W at #9 Monroe County, 12/11 53-30 W at #16 Metcalfe County, 12/12 58-56 W #10 Greenwood
Previous Rank: 9
This Week: 12/15 vs. #17 Cumberland County 12/18 at #8 Russell County

Clinton County eases into our top ten on the back of some close wins over Monroe County and Greenwood, the two teams below them. They have a HUGE game against Russell County this week.

10) Greenwood (3-3) - 12/8 66-60 W #3 Russell County, 12/11 67-66 W Edmonson County, 12/12 56-58 L at #11 Clinton County

This Week: 12/15 vs. #1 Bowling Green, 12/18 at #7 South Warren

The Gators ran out of steam at the end of the week against Clinton County, but still got a great road win over Russell County. It's district week for Greenwood with a pair of games against Bowling Green and South Warren. The former is an almost certain loss, but the latter could be a tossup. It's the one to watch.

11) Monroe County (1-4) - 12/8 47-49 L #11 Clinton County, 12/11 44-52 L at #2 Barren County

This Week: 12/15 vs. #8 Russell County, 12/18 vs. #14 Glasgow

Monroe County dropped a pair of games in-region, and are staring at another difficult contest against Russell County before some relief against Glasgow.

12) Logan County (1-3) - 12/11 46-84 L at #5 Franklin-Simpson

This Week: 12/14 at #5 Warren Central, 12/17 vs. Ohio County

The Cougars are taking it on the chin and dropped a big district game against Franklin-Simpson last Friday.

13) Allen County-Scottsville (1-4) - 12/8 47-63 L #2 Barren County, 12/11 49-40 W #17 Cumberland County, 12/12 56-68 L at #8 Warren East

This Week: 12/15 at #4 Russellville, 12/18 vs. #3 Franklin-Simpson

The Patriots have been running against a rough schedule in Coach Isable's first year, but did get his first win over Cumberland County last Friday. It won't get any easier this week against Russellville and Franklin-Simpson.

14) Glasgow (1-4) - 12/8 65-86 L at Somerset, 12/11 48-67 L at #3 Russell County, 12/12 54-68 L Edmonson County

The Scotties get one of their more winnable games on Friday when they travel to Monroe County for a district matchup.

15) Todd County Central (0-5) - 12/8 27-40 L Butler County, 12/11 44-71 L #7 Russellville, 12/12 27-68 L Webster County (at Madisonville)

This Week: 12/14 at Caldwell County, 12/18 vs. Rossview (TN), 12/19 at Calloway County

Tough week of blowouts for the Rebels and probably a couple more on the way.

16) Metcalfe County (1-4) - 12/8 50-48 W at #17 Cumberland County, 12/11 30-53 L #11 Clinton County, 12/12 55-63 L at Green County

This Week: 12/14 vs. #8 Russell County, 12/15 at Hart County

The Hornets got the win in the battle of our two lowest ranked teams, just like last year. This time Metcalfe scored on a last second layup for the win.

17) Cumberland County (0-5) - 12/8 48-50 L #16 Metcalfe County, 12/11 40-49 L at #13 Allen County-Scottsville

The Panthers hard luck continues, and the losing streak is now 38.
