Enjoy the list & tell us where we're right or wrong. .gif #1- Corey Holbrook (Campbell County)- The junior guard hasn't carried a Camels team without Nate McGovney all by himself, but Holbrook has produced some crazy scoring numbers.

11th Region Notebook

By AllAboutthe11th - Last Week ē Madison Central had a strong showing in the King of the Bluegrass, including avenging a loss to Bullitt East 64-58 to claim 3rd. The fact the Indians were still in the main bracket after their first two games was somewhat of a miracle. They overcame last minute deficits and beat both St. Xavier and Fairdale in overtime. Ken-Jah Bosley, after struggling all night due to sickness, scored 13 of his 15 points in the last minute of regulation (including a 3 to tie in the final seconds) in the win over St. X, then scored 40 while the Indians overcame a 5-point deficit in the last...

8th Region Notes/Rankings - Week 3

By 8thRegionGuy - First thing that jumps out at me from last week is the Eminence Warriors. Yes, I said Eminence. A 3 game winning streak for Coach Nethery and the Warriors with wins against Berea, Portland Christian and Heritage Academy.

10 Notes From The 10th Region (Reviewing Week 3)

By Randy Parker - 10 Notes From The 10th Region (Reviewing Week 3) 1) He has already built quite a name for himself in Mt. Sterling and throughout the Bluegrass, but Omar Prewitt of Montgomery County made history in his team's 27-point Wednesday night win over 40th District rival Bourbon County. The 6'5" senior's 18 points & 8 rebounds were impressive, but Prewitt scored his 1,866th point in the contest, earning himself the top spot on the school's all time boys' scoring list. The William & Mary bound guard certainly has other goals in mind for his final high school season, but this accomplishment... Read More →

12th Region Notebook

By PurplePride92 - 12th Region Notebook East Jessamine has a 5-3 record and has quality wins over Lincoln County and Garrard County. They are being led in scoring by Ronnie Carson and Timmy Bradshaw which is exactly what was expected from East. They have losses to Boyle County and Mercer County and are currently on the outside looking in to get the much needed 1 seed in their district. Too early to panic but not too early to be concerned. West Jessamine was off to a great start and still is despite a 94-51 pasting from the hands of Henry Clay. That game was a great opportunity for West Jessamine... Read More →

8th Region Notes, Schedules & Rankings

By 8thRegionGuy - Last week saw some of the rust wear off of some of our teams in the 8th Region. Gallatin County started out 0-2, but has rattled off 4 straight including last night's 31st district win against Eminence. 3 of the 4 wins were all NCKC Conference wins with the 4th against the 10th Region's Scott Eagles. Grant County has come out of the gate strong with a 5-0 start including a 32nd district win against Simon Kenton this past week. I neglected to mention the Braves last week. I apologize to Coach Hicks and the team for that. They lead the district with a 2-0 record with Walton-Verona... Read More →

10 Notes From The 10th Region (Reviewing Week 2)

By Randy Parker - 10 Notes From The 10th Region (Reviewing Week 2) 1) You could spend a week researching the annals of 10th Region basketball & be hard-pressed to find a better back-to-back scoring performance than what Brent Bach of Augusta achieved in road contests with Pendleton County (Thursday) & Bourbon County (Saturday). The 6'0 junior poured in 45 points in his team's 102-89 loss to the Wildcats & very nearly matched that effort with 41 points in an 82-60 win over the Colonels. 2) The 45 points on Thursday night wasn't the only story out of Falmouth. Mason Monroe of Pendleton County... Read More →

16th Region Notebook

By Tom Terrific - After a terrific start to the season it's time to start to glean some things now that teams have had an opportunity to display some of what you'll see this season in the 16th. These are just a few notes about what we think about the first official week of basketball in our corner of the Commonwealth. 1. Kyle Skaggs sets the Russell H.S. all time scoring mark. And it was no surprise, but he did it in consecutive 30point fashion. He has the Red Devils undefeated and looking like a serious contender to win the region. 2. Fleming County also has the feel of regional favorite with Burns... Read More →
