    I don't know . Lafayette has lost 4 in a row by a combined 89 points to Lexington teams and they blow mercer out the first time mercer plays a lex/lou city team.

    Mercer did not play well at all, and Lafayette played well.
    It was one of those best case/worst case type things.

    Lafayette was up 8-12 most of the second half until they got a 9 point possession which stretched a 10 point lead to 19 essentially clinching the victory.

    I dont think Mercer has played an athletic team all year. I think any Lexington/Louisville School will give them problems. And a team like Bowling Green will definitely give them problems!

    Put me in the camp that says losing is never a positive thing. I've never bought that logic.

    Truth be told, they should've lost to West Jess. Maybe Anderson. If it were just tonight, I wouldn't be as concerned. They've lost the chip they'll need. Let's see if this gets it back.
    Well spoken First...dead on analysis!

    Of all the things that Mercer struggled with and did wrong tonight, Lafayaette's athleticism doesn t make the top 10. Lafayette isn't even overly athletic. Their 2 leading scorers on the season, Ross Jenkins and Lane, wouldn't be labeled as athletic.

    The 3 point shooting was the biggest thing that killed them, along with the aforementioned lack of focus and intensity. Lafayette's top 3 scorers tonight were Lane, #23 and Jenkins - none of whose points came because of athleticism.

    Maybe your point could/will be proven but citing this Lafayette team as proof to support that argument doesn't work. They may be a Leximgton team, but not all Lexington teams are athletic.

    You were afraid that they would go to Lex and stink up the place to a team that is comparable to Boyle and Lincon ?

    Well then i guess they still havent played an athletic team because Lafayette is certainly average at best as far as athleticism

    Mercer Co is overrated transfers and weak schedule. If u look at the overall scape of it. Mercer beat Lafayette on a last second shot over summer. I knew then when they said they were playing them again they would get beat. Mercer with the transfers would not fair well in the 11th. Let alone the 43rd district. Lafayette beat them by 18 Dunbar would blow them out. Lexington Catholic would beat them and Lexington Christian would hand it to them. Mercer was a good story 20 something and 0 against who though?? They played somebody and got blew out. That's just what it was from the stands. Jaelin Jenkins controlled the pace Harrison Lane found his stroke. Ross Jenkins played big boy basketball. Chris Wharton won off the dribble all night. Eric Powell off the bench was a killer.Jajuante Carpenter was a dog all night and lit them up from all over the court. This proves you can be 291-0 against weak competition and play a team that's in a competitive region with a much harder schedule (Lafayette 15-7) and if you not really that good. You will get EXPOSED! Lafayette Exposed them for what they really were.mercer is a slow but physical if u let them get that way with you team. Don't believe me watch the game tape. Good run for you Mercer and all that hype that came with them. Overrated! The 12th region fans way to show up and support that was really good to see the support from you guys. Jus think Lafayette went to Pulaski Co and lost to Pulaski Southwestern in their home town in the championship game. Mercer needs to beat Southwestern by 20 to get any respect up this way. They not playing nobody. Dunbar was in the building as well as Henry Clay and all say the sane . Mercer would be at the upper bottom in 11th

    Can anyone at the game explain the 6pt play late in the game. I watched on prepspin and never got much of an explanation on the additional ft's and possession.

    Kid from Lafayette hits the 3 and is fouled......then what?

    Lane hit a 3 and was fouled by Dow. Then Dow was called for a T. I couldn't tell what he did or said. Lane hit all 3 free throws and Lafayette on the continuation of the possession hit another 3. Game over.
