    Agree it will be a dog fight. There is a lot of length and athletic teams in the 6th which makes it difficult to dominate or run through the region. It is a region that even PRP as the current 8th ranked team is likely a #1 or #2 team in many other regions. On a neutral court in a TN Holiday tournament they beat a very solid Corbin team by 12 and Corbin is clearly the #1 or #2 team in the 13th. That is just an example of how deep this region...

    I can see the potential to have Trinity over Fern Creek despite FC winning 2 out of 3 games they have played. But how does a team with an 18-2 record with 7 victories over the current Top 20 be behind a 12-4 Ballard team which they have beaten twice in the KOB & LIT by an average of 10 points? They play a third time next week so maybe the CJ Litkenhous will get it right if FC is successful a third time beating Ballard.

    LIT week in Louisville is a big thing and this past week history was made for one 6th region team. Fern Creek earned their first LIT championship in 70 years of this long running event. The Tigers had only ever been to one LIT Championship game during this time (2004), so this was a monumental championship for the Fern Creek High School & entire community. Eleven 6th region teams made the 2017 LIT but only 4 scored victories as 7 recorded...

    Open enrollment In Jefferson County creates an opportunity for a drastic turnaround if everything comes together with coaches and players. In the case of Fern Creek, Coach Schooler took the head coaching role at Fern Creek one season before the 2018 class entered high school. This team has been in great part comprised of players in the 2018 class. 5 or 6 wanted to play together as they had played youth ball for many years. Several of those...

    Not with me, I have always felt he is at the top or in the inner circle of being the top. Question is if football or basketball has the most upside. He is also a great safety. Just a solid young man too.

    I was there and I can't tell you what effect it had on the Ballard players, but it seemed to energize the Fern Creek team who was up 9. The 5 Fern Creek Players out on the court at one time started the defensive drill with their hands up and fast feet taps. They all had smile on their faces. They came out in the 4th quarter with a lot of confidence.

    Final from LIT FC nexts takes on Eastern at LIT Friday @ 4 PM which is where Chance Moore played until this season. Chance scored 30 tonight and Anthony Wales added 20 for the Tigers.

    Last week was a Doss Dragon steamroller as they beat the #2 and #6 teams in the region clearly separating themselves from the other contenders. With the Fern Creek loss to Hopkinsville on Saturday, it is also likely that Doss has narrowed the lead as they claw back to the #2 spot challenging Fern Creek for the best team in the 6th region. 1) Fern Creek (14-2)- Good wins over 6th region rivals Butler and Bullitt East, but a bad loss to...

    I just got back to Louisville from the game and no doubt Hopkinsville was the better team tonight for the most part because early in the 2nd half Cager took over and had an incredible stretch where he was the best player on the court from either team. Great run that just about doubled the halftime lead of 8 in a matter of minutes. Credit Hoptown for overcoming a slow start to tie the score by the end of the 1st quarter and taking control...

    Agree on the well coached team comment, and both teams just played hard with mutual respect. This is a good rivalry between district foes. BE has owned the district for at least the last 5 years and since Coach Schooler has arrived at Fern Creek there have been mostly competitive games between these programs. Clint Wickliffe really had a great 2nd half with 14 points to actually total 15 for the game. I also liked the effort from BE...

    Final Bullitt East was up at half by 7 until Fern Creek had a really good 3rd quarter when Clint Wickliffe scored 8 & Anthony Wales 7 during a run to go up 10. Bullitt East tried to get back in it in the 4th quarter, but could never regain the lead. Fern Creek was led by Wales with 14 and Wickliffe 13. Ahmad Price missed the game due to illness and foul trouble kept Chance Moore from breaking double figures. Bullitt East has a great fan...

    You can argue with the methodology, but to suggest there is a puppetmaster behind the curtain pulling strings indicates something that simply does not exist. An AD in 6th & 7th region get updates on a regular basis and there is a scoring key that spells out every scenario that you add or subtract your points. It is impossible to rig the seedings. You can argue the logic of the scoring key, but you can also plan your schedule to maximize the...

    I understand what you are trying to say here, but eliminating turnovers is what prevents you from losing not helps you to win. Not turning the ball over is table stakes, not the catalyst for a strong 2nd half. I would say the monster game from Sylvester and 26 from Fitzgerald was the major difference for Pulaski. Butt is a great HS player capable of being a difference maker, but suggesting his ability to cut down on his turnovers was the...

    Final Chance Moore led with 26 followed by Anthony Wales 15 and Ahmad Price 13. Defense was stingy by the Tigers.

    I was able to see Big Zach play in June with his SK team and knew he could be a centerpiece for them. I have not seen them play this season, but he is for sure a favorite of mine as he is a big man that doesn't mind banging around the basket.

    I will add 6'6" Hogan Brownley from Louisville Male. He has some really nice spin moves near the basket. If Male makes any noise it will be in large part how often they can get the ball to Hogan. He is almost averaging a double double with 16 points and 9.8 rebounds. Very nice traditional post player for the Bulldogs.

    Agree, before pulling top kids from border states the programs here in KY first must shore up the exodus of top KY kids leaving for other programs in OH, IN, TN, and Missouri. Those programs that come in and do this are well funded and many times it is because they have former players who are pros giving back to their teams they used to play on. When a top player and their parent(s) are able to travel on the out of state program's budget...

    I know it is hard to compare the programs of Trinity and NCC because of overall numbers, but I perceive schools to seemingly have on/off years in classes by design in basketball. Trinity for example in the recent past cycles will have a senior dominated squad with most of the next tier talented kids be sophomores. The Freshmen and Junior classes may have a significant player, but the depth seems down. It has worked for them the past few...

    As we look back on the 2016 part of the 2016-17 season one thing is for sure....the 6th region can make a strong case as the juggernaut of all 16 regions this season. At season's end if you make it out of the 6th, you will have earned your trip to Rupp and be battle tested. The 6th has always had teams capable of winning the State Tournament, but the overall depth this season makes it a region that few can match. What we have learned so far...

    Great win to go into a neighboring state and win a Holiday event to bring the trophy back to KY. Way to represent Trinity. Rocks will be a tough out at the LIT in two weeks. The LIT is a great event as the battle for bragging rights of the 6th & 7th are on the line. HS basketball fans in the city of Louisville and those that travel in will be in for a treat.

    I have to see how they do against better competition. Schedule has not been brutal so far. I see three tough games and they are 1-2. Good win over Pulaski, but only 3-2 in region and loss to the best two in region teams in Scott & Dunbar. I would think they are the favorite for the All A classic. They could prove to be a strong contender for the 11th, I just am not convinced yet.

    Wanted to see opinions on what teams anybody has seen that are getting a dominant advantage out of their post players. I have seen dozens of games and for me it has been Covington Cath with 7 footer Jake Walters who fits the traditional big man role. But I like even more the production that Ballard is getting out of Clivonte Patterson. Ballard lacks size and has the 6'3" Patterson playing the post even though he does not fit the mold of a...
