    I believe he signed LOI in November. He will be a very good player for them as he can play the 3 with his outside shooting or he can play a stretch four as he rebounds well. Great player and a super nice young man who you are happy to see good things happen for him.

    Wrong on Darius Garland, he is still expected to play on NIKE EYBL St. Louis Eagles 17U team. Rumor was out there, but to my knowledge that is all it ever was.

    Doss beat Taylor County 94-41 (53 point loss) about a month ago. Ballard beat them good, but TC just does not have a team that would cause much concern with many of the 6th & 7th region better teams. To the credit of TC, they played the very best teams of the 6th & 7th this year...Trinity, Fern Creek, Doss, and now Ballard. The closest margin was a 26 point loss to Fern Creek at the Clem Haskins Invitational at Taylor County. The thing...

    So true and Ballard did the same to Trinity when Ray Spaulding was a senior with a starting lineup that all had D1 offers. It is odd they do that to each other. I have watched both teams and there is not any scenario that I can see Taylor County pulling this one out. It is a very bad match-up for Taylor County. The pressure from Ballard will really cause problems with a Taylor County team that when I saw them struggled with pressure. Great...

    Us June, July (me), and early August guys are about the only one who just turned 5 before kindergarten starts and the other kids with birthdays in the other nine months turn 18 during their senior year of high school. So we are actually the untypical kids. Vast majority hit 18 in senior year and thus hit 15 in freshman year.

    Those of you from Lexington, any front runner for this job at Tates Creek? From an outsider it looks to be a job that is difficult to win in recent years but maybe in the past had success. Shawnee comes to mind here in Jefferson County as a similar history and currently just cannot seem to be a winning program no matter who takes over.

    Then you were either like me and had a birthday that fell after graduation day (summer birthday) or you entered kindergarten as a 4 year old. Those are the only two ways you can graduate at 17. The law of numbers apply here, most kids enter kindergarten at 5 and turn 18 their senior year of high school. Or you could have been so smart they moved you ahead a grade or skipped a grade.

    In the world where kids enter kindergarten at the age of 5, that has them turning 15 in their freshman year of school, so that means Zion at one time reclassified during his school age years. That is not unlike many kids playing high school basketball, I bet the percentage would shock most of us and is close to 10% or more. With that in mind, his age does nothing to change the fact he is a true young phenom in this sport. I am glad we were...

    15 is typically a freshman and depending on when you turn 16 could be a normal sophomore age. I know a junior who was not held back or sent to school early and he played his entire junior season at 16. Typically freshmen turn 15 during the school year, sophomores turn 16, and juniors turn 17 if they have not been held back. If you connect the dots Zion made it out to TN through the AAU program,We All Can Go, who is based out of Nashville. ...

    Kunkel can impact the game from the guard position as much as Baker. It will be a tough time for Meade County because the game plan will be shutting down Baker who is very good. Cooper can play D and will not let Baker go unchecked. I predict Baker will have a good game, but he has not faced a defense like Cooper's in any recent 3rd Region games.

    CJ is a great player and one game does not define a college coach's opinion of whether to keep recruiting or begin recruiting. They are going to actually want to watch a game where you are not effective (either injury related or not which is really not material anyway) to see how you react emotionally or what you do in other aspects of the game. He will be watched many times over and I am sure will continue to draw attention as he has been. ...

    Tony is a smart guy, you don't make announcements (public or private) if you are being hired to a "lucrative" position. You allow the program hiring you to be the first to make a public announcement. That is why so many coaches at all levels shoot down rumors only to move in the direction of the rumor shortly after the denial.

    Wales has been a verbal commit to Samford since last summer. The matchup in round 1 with him and Shorty Cager will be a good one. Cager won round 1 in the New Year's Bash at Muhlenberg County with an unbelievable performance. He was on fire and Wales although solid was outplayed that day. It will be a key factor in the outcome of that tough game for both teams.

    6th Region Coach of the Year- KC Goodin. KC is a really good coach, but Butler was anything but special this year. I know I may have some bias, but how could anyone beat out James Schooler at Fern Creek in the 6th? 28-2 in regular season and 33-2 now with the first ever trip to State after existing since the 1920's. First Regional Final since 1984 so it is not like this was a traditional powerhouse program. Not putting KC down with this...

    CVH was a mainstay for the past 4 seasons in KY basketball. Great player and always left it out on the floor. Glad to hear he played well in his final HS game. He deserved to walk out like that, but I know he would have traded it for another trip to Rupp. True team guy!

    You know the team much better than I, but Aiden and AJ are not 7 footers. There should be nobody who impacts the game like a 7 footer, especially in KY where that kind of size is rare.

    It is for everyone except Cooper. The thing about sports is that when the season ends, you can always look forward to next year. Adam Kunkel will be back next year and of course CJ & Jake will be returning for CCH. Those 3 seem to be the top of the pack returning.

    7 PM Tuesday @ Valley HS This is a contrast of fortunes....Doss is working on 3 Region Championships in a row while Fern Creek has never been to a 6th Region Championship game. They last played in a Regional Championship in 1983 while a member of the 7th Region and have never made it to the Sweet 16. They met in early December in a physical game at Doss which Fern Creek won by 13. Doss has a 22-10 overall record and 11-3 in regional play. ...

    It was weird for both teams, obviously the advantage went to FC to gain an early cushion, but as youngsters they found themselves in an unexpected situation as well which threw them off a bit too. Nobody is mentioning that Coach Schooler opted to take two starters out of the game (1 the leading scorer) to teach a life lesson. Not many coaches are going to do that in a game where the season is riding on it. It was not a off court incident or...

    Fern Creek had four in double figures again...Anthony Wales 17, Ahmad Price 14, Clint Wickliffe 14, & Tony Rogers 12. Fern Creek had a 18 point lead with 2:30 to go and Valley made one last furious comeback getting it below 10 before they ran out of time.

    If I am not mistaken Jaxon Burgess was the leading scorer in the 6th region at about 19 PPG, so he is really good. Last night he was on another level playing like his HS career was on the line. He had 27 so he was +8 above his average for the night. Fern Creek's leading scorer, Chance Moore, who averages 17 had an off scoring night with only 6 so he was a -11. This was a 20 point swing when the respective leading scorers were either really...

    DeSales came out on fire, Jaxon Burgess in particular as he scored 15 in 1st half. Fern Creek came back to take a 1 point lead at half. 2nd half Fern Creek got the lead into double digits but had to finish it out by making free throws to win by 14. Jaxon Burgess finished his career with DeSales by scoring 27. Great effort by Jaxon. Fern Creek Junior Class put 4 in double figures with Clint Wickliffe leading with 17. Anthony Wales had 15,...

    The 6th region has had many say that the depth of good teams this year has made it one of the best regions in all the state this year. When teams like Bullitt East, Butler, Fairdale, and even Iroquois fail to make the regional championships it highlights just how good the Top 10-12 teams really are. All of those aforementioned teams have good victories this past season, but failed to punch their ticket to the 6th regionals. But 8 did and here...

    This is very true, and the thing about the 6th in particular this season is it is not senior dominated. Many teams have a nucleus of younger players that contribute. Add in the fact that the 6th traditionally has many athletic teams & players. It is not like all the athletes are at Fern Creek. In basketball when teams are matched athletically then usually the team with the best basketball talent wins. But in any single game if the better...

    Final Not much in doubt from the tip as the Tigers had 4 in double figures. Chance Moore led with 21 followed by Anthony Wales 14, Clint Wickliffe 14, and Ahmad Price 11. Bullitt East is playing JTown in later game which should turn into a championship game with BE and FC on Friday.
