    Region 10

    Where in the world is the 10th Region headed???

    This past Saturday, Bishop Brossart beat Campbell County by 12. I was at the game, and to be honest, it did not even feel that close. GRC is the reigning regional champs with the presumptive best player in the region in Kennedy Igo. They are the kings of the region until someone knocks them out. Campbell Co hosted GRC last night and came out with an extremely impressive 7pt win.

    So if you believe in the the standard equation here... On paper... Brossart (13-1) handled the team (CC, 9-4) who beat GRC (7-5). Does that make Brossart in the driver's seat for Region 10? Is this region simply a 3-team race? Can small school, Paris (12-1), actually contend for the region? Others?

    From my angle, the loss of their top shooter and 2nd leading scorer, Lily Cropenbaker, from Brossart, to an ACL injury, is MAJOR NEWS. I could be wrong, but I firmly believe that this loss will catch up to Brossart.

    Scott High has played an extremely difficult schedule thus far. But they are yet to rack up enough Ws to look like a contender. The loss of their star player, Mya Meredith (ACL), is not an easy pill to swallow, especially with the brutal schedule they have. But they have the athleticism to break out at any moment. Coincidentally, they host Bishop Brossart tomorrow night. With an upset win, they could flip the narrative on their whole season.

    Paris High has answered nearly every challenge they have faced. They are currently 2nd in the RPI rankings with impressive wins over Nicholas County, Pendleton County, MoCo, and Mason. Their only L came on the road by 10 vs Bourbon Co. Needless to say, they have not faced the premier teams in the 10th, but again, they stand at 12-1, not to be taken lightly.

    I. Love. It. The 10th Region honestly feels WIDE open. To me, it feels like there are three teams at the top, but roughly 6 or so who could actually take it all given the right run.

    Love to hear your thoughts!

    Paris beat GRC tonight by 1 point. Igo has been out with a ankle sprain. Depends on who stays healthy IMO

    Lady Camels were not themselves vs Brossart. Take out that loss and Campbell could be considered a favorite for the 10th. CC has just as good a shot as Brossart or GRC to win the region. It will be one of those three. Paris is good, probably one year away though from making noise at the regional tournament. Beating GRC without Igo is fine but not a statement.

    That is a true statement that any of those teams mentioned could win regional but Brossarts defense has made many a team not them selves this year.

    100% correct. Brossart's 1/2 court man to man (girl to girl?) defense is as good as some boy teams play. Campbell County, like many of Brossart's opponents, had to work so hard just to get a decent shot. As usual, it will come down to match-ups. Looking forward to the Brossart v Paris game since Brossart has at times struggled against a pressing team. I do agree that the regional is very wide open. Don't overlook Scott. They are adjusting to not having Meredith and are getting better.
