Carlisle County smashed Christian Fellowship 59 to 23 and Fulton City outlasted Community Christian Academy 49 to 39 setting up the Quarterfinals beginning Monday the 20th.

Inside The 11th Region (1/15/14)

By JokersWild24 - INTRODUCTION: This past week’s competition saw a huge upset, as Lexington Christian Academy knocked off Lexington Catholic in double-overtime. We’ve also saw two important showdowns that helped sort out the rankings of the Lexington area teams occur last night. In a match-up of the #2 and #3 teams in the 11th according to my rankings, as Lafayette knocked off Lexington Catholic. It was a big win for a couple of reasons. First, it was on Lexington Catholic’s home floor (and through the years, the Knights fans, especially the students show a lot of support for their team and it can... Read More →

Their duo of Colby Langford and Keifer Dalton is not only the best 1-2 punch in the regional, but they may be the two best players playing in the entire tournament. The major negative the Bulldogs face is... Read More →

By Les - By Les Dixon For the Times-Tribune Boys Player of the Week Bryson Asher, North Laurel The freshman center is starting to assert himself as one of, if not the best, center in the 13th Region. His 15-point, 12-rebound effort against crosstown rival South Laurel this past Friday not only helped guide his Jaguars past the Cardinals, but also garnered him this week's top boys' honor.
