    1. Fern Creek (3-1): Fern Creek lost to #1 Trinity on the Rocks home court after leading by 10 at the half. Trinity shot 18 for 19 from the free throw line while Fern Creek was 3/9. That was a major reason why, but the Tigers also failed to rebound on the defensive end and showed some cracks in the armor if they continue those trends in two key areas of play. The Tigers are getting 21.5 PPG from Ahmad Price, 19.5 from Anthony Wales and 12...

    They could use the depth, but who do you sit down with that starting 5, all those kids can play. On the other side Fern Creek lost Trey Hill to a transfer to PRP in the middle of their sophomore season. Think if he was still at Fern Creek. He is one of the top players in the 6th region and better than either of those two in terms of being recruited at the D1 level.

    Cov Catholic and Scott County are very good too. There is a Top 4 and then there is a little separation. But teams can improve during the year and some do not so the race to Rupp is still wide open. Plus in tourney time one game is all it takes for an upset.

    It is a judgement call and for those that like an aggressive man to man style of defense it would not be characterized as riding a guy. The defense is entitled to their position and being up on the ball handler in an aggressive fashion is how you draw an offensive foul like Price did in the first half. Ball handlers hate it because it makes them uncomfortable and they tend to hurry their dribble and use their off hand to create space. It...

    I could see that may help. They have length at the PG spot in Johnson and Powell, but they do not have much depth with a quick smaller guard. In the first half with Johnson out of the game due to foul trouble the Fern Creek press caused a lot of turnovers. Someone asked about video of the foul that sent Price to the bench and caused a T on the coach...I can only describe it as a foul that you hate to see a kid sent to the bench on. He was...

    Trinity and Fern Creek both had tough games on Friday night and put on an excellent high school basketball game against each other the following night. I think the bigger issue is Adair just rarely plays against elite competition and when they do they will struggle. Mercer may not be elite in terms of a top 10 team, but they have an elite player in Faulkner that can play some great defense. That is not to say Harmon can't look good against...

    Jay Scrubb was the real deal tonight with 24 and superb free throw shooting along with hitting multiple 3's. WKU assistant in the gym was very impressed. As mentioned, tale of two halves. David Johnson sat quite a bit of the 1st half with foul trouble and Fern Creek took advantage for a 10 point lead at the break. Trinity came out strong after the break and closed the gap to a tie game entering the 4th. Fern Creek had the same problem...

    I would agree, but as you play holiday tournaments and then if you are able to get to Rupp in March it prepares you for that grind. Especially tough though for sure, and I know that some of the kids are also taking the ACT this morning sandwiched between the games.

    Fern Creek by 9 at half but Doss came out on a 7-0 run to start the 3rd quarter and ended up down 5 entering the 4th. Fern Creek pulled away for the 15 point victory at the end. Fern Creek had 69 points from their big 3...Ahmad Price with 27, Anthony Wales and Clint Wickliffe with 21 each. Stephon Franklin led Doss with 16. Trinity is next for Fern Creek tomorrow.

    In a tune up for a big weekend of games (Doss/Friday & Trinity/Saturday) Fern Creek looked very good again. Running clock most of the 2nd half and all the FC starters were on the bench before Q3 ended and never returned. Price & Wales led in scoring again with 17 & 15. The entire squad looked good, even the end of the bench. 6'6" freshman, Darius Washington, was very solid and if he keeps improving at the rate he is could be an additional...

    I always liked his steady play and scoring ability. Congrats to him. Is he narrowing his college choices at all? I had always hoped he may find his way to Bellarmine and join his former teammate, Ben Weyer. Ben is having great success at Bellarmine and I suspect Brennen would be a good fit there also.

    Samuel Weining is #22 and he may have been at Trinity at one time, but he was with DeSales last season and was expected to be the best player on this DeSales team this season. Last year they had Jaxon Burgess who was a very good player and Sam is the heir to that role this season. DeSales figures to be a team in the 6th that falls in the top half of the region, but somewhere between 6-10 is where they will likely stay in the weekly rankings. ...

    1. Fern Creek (1-0): Fern Creek started the season with a tough opening game against the team most everyone considered as their strongest 6th region challenger, PRP. After PRP jumped to a 4-0 lead, the Tigers went on a tear and were leading 35-13 at the end of the 1st quarter. They substituted heavily the entire game and still won 87-63. Starters played no more than 20 minutes in this blowout that set the rest of the region on notice that...

    If Cager and Johnson are both out, Hopkinsville is not very good. When they both are in there, that is a totally different team. BG will be fine in time, but that was a bad lost to Davies County. The win today is not as good a win as that was a bad loss considering Cager is not playing and Johnson played with a significant injury.

    Great to hear that Jalen is back, that gives some hope for Hoptown. When I saw them in a scrimmage without him, they only had Shorty as a real scoring threat. Not sure what the time period is for Cager to be back if that even exists, but I feel they are better with Jalen if they only can have one of the two. Jalen will likely score close to 30 a night and will need to in order to give Hopkinsville a good chance to repeat. Without Cager...

    With football in particular, a verbal commit does not keep other schools from coming at you hard. There is no honor within the coaching circles to respect verbal commitments. If other bigger schools want AJ they will make a run at him. If he stays with Miami of Ohio it will bear out that other schools did not come after him or he told them all he was not interested. His verbal commit will not keep any other school away. I never have seen a...

    Fern Creek hit 14 of their first 18 shots. Ahmad Price led with 23 and Anthony Wales had 19. Fern Creek had way more depth that contributed, played about 12 players in the first half trying to keep the pace at a high speed. PRP was led by Gerald Gray with 13. Very surprised at the margin, but the Tigers just seemed dialed in and angry from falling short last season. PRP unfortunately were the team that paid the price.

    Bowling Green is very likely going to surprise people this season as those are all good wins. Summer wins can be deceiving sometimes because coaches put a different emphasis on what they are trying to accomplish and you do not always have your full roster e.g. Fern Creek played without their All-Region PG all June due to a broken foot. But those other two wins are recent and usually these scrimmages are more game like. I think people suspect...

    I especially agree that Madison Central is a very good team worthy of being a ranked team with the presence of Cozart in the middle. He will make it difficult to score inside as long as he stays out of foul trouble as he is one of the best in the state protecting the rim. Walton-Verona & Anderson are two of the best coming out of the 8th for sure, but is that enough to break the Top 20? Both play in the KOB in December and we will be able to...

    Agree with all four of those teams likely being in the Top 20 soon as others lose. You make very good points and of the four I like Madison Central the most with WV right behind them.

    I know it may sound almost unbelievable, but over half of their losses were to Fern Creek. Not twice, but four times. 1st loss in the KOB, 2nd in the LIT, 3rd in regular season scheduled game, and the fourth and final time was in the Sweet 16 at Rupp. It is hard to beat a good team twice, but FC was able to beat Ballard four times. This year Ballard will be very fun to watch because Coach Renner is going to go all out on defense and his...
