    I notice that North Laurel has dropped 6 of 7 games. Do they have injury problems or something?

    There were complaints on BGP during the Christmas season about a lack of team play.

    Maybe they aren't as good as they were portrayed to be.

    After seeing them a couple of times I would have to agree....

    OBI is better than usual and they played Clay tough at Clay earlier. but North has major issues. All the other kids have laid down from what I'm being told. That they don't want to play with Broughton and for the Coach that is allowing him to take over 40% of the teams shots. Major chemistry issues on that team.

    Oneida is 5-7 and North Laurel is 6-10. It sounds like it was just an even matchup that went Oneida's way.

    The Frazier kid can really play from New York. He's in the top 20 in scoring in the state.

    Oneida should be competing for region titles every season.

    Say Oneida this summer. Looks like good talent that needs to be harnessed...some good athletes, but lots of questions about where they all come from.

    It's a boarding school in Clay County. Below are stats from their webpage.

    Oneida Baptist Institute

    Oneida accepts students in grades 6-12. On average...

    • OBI's enrollment is approximately 275-300 students.

    • 50% of our students are from the state of Kentucky, 30% from other states, and 20% from other
    nations.

    • We normally have about 85 middle school students and 200 high school students.

    • The ratio of male/female students is about 50% male, 50% female.

    • The average number of students in a graduating class is 52. In the 2014 class, 48 graduates
    earned advanced diplomas. Approximately 60% of OBI graduates continue their education after graduating from Oneida.

    By the way, when I was growing up in central Kentucky, if a kid got into some trouble at school (or outside of school) it wasn't uncommon for them to "go to Oneida." So it sometimes served as a type of behavioral intervention.

    And while OBI has occasionally had good basketball and soccer teams it has never been a powerhouse. That really isn't the school's mission.
