BluegrassPreps.com 11th Region Boys Basketball Week 2 Review


Recommended Posts

Another week in the books in the mighty 11th Region. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 shutdowns have started to hit the region and caused a couple of good match ups to be canceled late in the week. However, the 11th Region All A Classic was held along with some other really good match ups. Lets check out this past weeks action!

TEAM RANKINGS

1. Lexington Catholic (6-0) - The Knights improved to 6-0 this week with 3 big wins over Lafayette, Holmes, and Highlands. The win against Highlands sticks out as Highlands was ranked as high as 9th in the state this week. The Knights were able to take control of the game early behind Ben Johnson who ended the day with 29 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. For the week Johnson averaged 25.4 points per game and continues to show why he is one of the favorites for Mr. Basketball this season. The Knights lost a big 43rd District game early this upcoming week when Paul Laurence Dunbar went into Covid-19 shutdown but do face off with a resurgent Tates Creek team to end the week. 

2. Paul Laurence Dunbar (4-0) - The Bulldogs started off the week with a big win over Frederick Douglass in a game where they trailed by as many as 17 points in the second half. Tim Hall had a huge game with 34 points and 14 rebounds while Nick Spalding poured in 21 points as well. The rest of the week was sadly put to an end for PLD as they entered Covid-19 shutdown and unfortunately lost games with Madison Central and Bowling Green. The Bulldogs will be out of action for the next two weeks. 

3. Madison Central (4-1) - The Indians got off to a slow start this week dropping a game to West Jessamine on the road in overtime but bounced back nicely with a win over South Laurel to end the week. A big time match up with Paul Laurence Dunbar was canceled. Kole Browne and Braeden Ray continue to pace the Indians this season. Up next for Madison Central is a game with Belfry at Sayre and then games with Trinity and Pikeville to end the week. A tough week for the Indians. 

4. Frederick Douglass - (2-1) - This was not the best week for the Broncos. After blowing a 17 point second half lead to Paul Laurence Dunbar the Broncos were put into Covid-19 shutdown after a positive test from an opponent forced them to close up for 2 weeks. DaShawn Jackson had a nice game against Dunbar with 22 points and 7 rebounds and Tyson Barrett continues to put his name on the map with 15 points and 9 rebounds against Dunbar. The Broncos are scheduled to play this week with big time 42nd District games against Henry Clay, Scott County, and Sayre all this week. 

5. Bryan Station (2-0) - The Defenders are another team who have been hit by Covid-19 and havent played any games in over a week. Bryan Station is scheduled to resume playing this week with a home game Friday against Bourbon County. Hopefully the Defenders can get back into the swing of things and continue to show signs of improvement. 

6. Henry Clay (4-2) - The Blue Devils are on a 4 game win streak including 3 wins this past week over Tates Creek, Madison Southern, and Nicholas County. Aziel Blackwell continues to have a breakout season averaging 18.5 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. A big week upcoming for Henry Clay as they host 42nd District rival Frederick Douglass then head to a good Boyle County team and end the week with crosstown rival Lafayette. 

7. Lexington Christian (4-2) - A big week for the Eagles as they captured the 11th Region All A Classic Championship with wins over Frankfort, Trinity Christian, and Sayre. Tanner Walton returned to help the Eagles in the championship game against Sayre and finished with 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. This week LCA has a tough week with Anderson County, Beechwood, and Central Kentucky Homeschool. 

8. Tates Creek (2-3) - What a week for the Commodores. Early on Tates Creek took one on the chin at Henry Clay but bounced back to win two games over Woodford County and Bracken County both on the road. The big thing about those last two wins is Tates Creek only had 6 players suit up in each game, and even ended the Bracken County game with 4 players!! Sam Parrish had a HUGE week with 23 points against Woodford County and 25 points against Bracken County. This week Tates Creek heads to two top 5 teams in George Rogers Clark and Lexington Catholic. 

9. Scott County (1-5) - The Cardinals finally got on the winning side of things this week with a win over crosstown rival Great Crossing but then dropped back to back games against East Jessamine and Meade County. The Cardinals are really struggling to find their groove early in the season. The Cardinals lost a scheduled game this week to Bryan Station due to Covid shutdown but do have games with Bourbon County, Lafayette, and Frederick Douglass. 

10. Madison Southern (1-4) - The Eagles dropped 2 close games this past week to good competition in South Laurel and Henry Clay. Don't let the record fool you the Eagles have been in every game theyve played this season. Up next the Eagles hit the road to Somerset, Garrard County, and Great Crossing. 

The next 6-7 teams in the rankings could really fall anywhere and I think it will be a revolving door at these spots the rest of the season. 

11. Lafayette (2-4)

12. Great Crossing (1-5) 

13. Franklin County (1-3) 

14. Sayre (4-2)

15. Western Hills (2-3) 

16. Frankfort (1-4) 

The bottom 3 teams are really struggling to start the season and will need to do some work to make it to the next tier of the region. With so many Covid-19 shutdowns in the region this week and next its really hard to give a ton of information on some teams. 

17. Berea (1-2) 

18. Model (1-4) 

19. Frankfort Christian Academy (0-1)
