The rankings look about right as OCath showed that they are not quite there yet in closing out tough games. They led undefeated John Hardin as well but couldn't handle the super athletic pressure in the second half.

Meade County is starting to get healthy. Cooper Crump has returned to the team from an injury after having a solid season last year as an 8th grader. Looks like Armstead is starting to pick things up after suffering a pre-season injury and missing a few games (don't think he's all the way back yet, though). Going back to the win against Breckinridge, I believe that the Waves are 6-2 over that period. They will only get better over time, especially if Armstead can return to the level of play he showed in AAU ball and in the pre-season. I firmly believe that a healthy Meade County is better than Ohio County (lost a close one to Ohio Co. without Armstead and Crump) and should be contending for your #4 spot in the rankings before long. I also throw out the loss against O Cath since it was without Armstead. Hard to tell how that game would have gone if he had played, but the lopsided loss was due to a massive number of turnovers that he certainly would have helped with. I'm combining all of that with a win against your #1 team to make an argument that this team is potentially better than your current ranking shows.

After a full slate of games last night and some losses by a few key teams, I feel strongly that Meade Co. is worthy of being higher up in the rankings. Meade's only two losses in the region were its first two games without a very key player. I'm not explaining those losses away entirely, but I do think that Meade is probably worthy of at least being in your #4 slot in the rankings.

Since Muhlenberg county's very successful holiday tourneys (5-1) against some very good teams, the Mustangs seem to have had zero consistency. Offensive plan of attack, defensive strategy, and starting line ups/rotations are a crap shoot. Not real sure what the young coach Kyle Eades is attempting to accomplish however his timing is odd to make such drastic changes to a team that has proven they can win once the bridle comes off.

I've said all along you can really throw a blanket over 10-11 teams in this region. The rankings are really fluid. Grayson County started well, hit a rough patch and now have reeled off some impressive wins in a row. A team like Meade, who hasn't been fully healthy for much of the season, is really hard to get a read on as well. I would bet they will be in the mix come tournament time. A lot of teams in the middle of the pack have solid talent up and down the lineup but very little varsity experience that has returned. I think that's contributed to the inconsistency. From what i've seen thus far, Owensboro, Breckenridge County and Owensboro Catholic are the most talented teams in the region but not by a lot. This could easily be a season someone comes from no where to make the trip to Rupp.
