Inside the 6th Region (12-15-14)

By GoHardITP - Weekly Top 10 1) Doss Doss continues to be in the top spot after two victories against 6th region Western HS by 13 and a 26 point win over 7th region Atherton. Dujuanta Weaver came down to earth after dropping 30 on PRP last week, but continues to lead his team. The depth of this team will make it hard for most teams to stop any particular player in hopes of an upset. Doss opens with Newport Central Catholic in the King of the Bluegrass this weekend so this will be a great opportunity to see just how good Doss really is. 2) PRP PRP only had a single game this past week which was a...

Player of the Week: Taveion Hollingsworth - PG - Dunbar: While most of his teammates were out, Hollingsworth put up a gritty performance in dropping 35 points and grabbing 17 rebounds against Lafayette. Though he missed the Dawgs game against Mason County due to injury, Taveion has shown lots of growth as a player over the beginning of the season, stepping up and carrying his team when it...

Inside the 13th Region (12-15-14)

By Les - Another week down, and this is what we know – the Clay County Tigers remain the team to beat, but to be honest, I’m thinking this region is up for grabs. North Laurel was a missed wide-open lay-up away from defeating the two-time defending 13th Region champions on their home court.The Jaguars showed they have enough arsenal to win the region, and will be a team to reckon with throughout the season. Their size, and outside shooting really bothered the Tigers. I also saw three areas of concern for Robert Marcum’s squad – they have to get better on defense if they want to three-peat as regional...
