3rd Region Week 6 Review: Tigers Taking Hold

Recommended Posts

1. Breckenridge County Tigers (14-2) SAME

The Tigers continued to roll this week, running their winning streak to 10 games. On Tuesday, they rolled into Daviess County and took down the Panthers 79-63. Kobe Poole looked unstoppable at times, on his way to 36 points. Poole became the Tigers all-time leading scorer, moving past Breckenridge County legend Adam Mattingly. Mattingly, along with current head Coach Patrick Critchelow led Breck to a state championship and would go on to win a Division II national title at Kentucky Wesleyan. Congrats to Kobe! They followed that up with an 88-68 win over North Bullitt. Poole had 24 points and 8 rebounds, while Cole Tabor chipped in 16. They host Apollo on Tuesday before heading to Grayson County to close out the week.

 

2. Owensboro Red Devils (9-6) SAME

Tough break for Meade Co. as I heard on the radio broadcast that Chezney Weick suffered an ankle injury and did not play against E-Town. Meade controlled the game with a 14 point lead at one point in the 3rd quarter, but gave the lead away (and some) down the stretch. While Chris Armstead may have the biggest upside on the team, I do feel that Chezney Weick is the one player Meade can't do without at this time. I know this sounds like a broken record, but the E-Town loss may be another one that needs to be highlighted with an asterisk (key injury).

Rumors out of Meade Co. are pretty bad. Chezney Weick may be out for a pretty long time due to his recent injury. Going to be hard to overcome his loss without going through some significant adversity. Someone has to step up in his absence, but it is starting to feel like no one is anywhere close to being ready. Not having Weick is no excuse for losing to North Hardin in blowout fashion. It's soul searching time now.
