7th Region Week 3 Review

Recommended Posts

The 7th Region is about to heat up as the Jefferson County Board of Education voted this past week to allow the public schools to start playing February 1st. The only surprise this past week was St. Xavier defeating Trinity, but Trinity came back with a strong effort against Covington Catholic who is one of top teams in the state. Trinity should continue to improve. St. X has played surprisingly well without Bellarmine Commit Ayden Mudd who is recovering from a sprained ankle. Four public schools hold the top 4 places based on their strength on paper, but will soon get to defend their ranked positions. Buckle up as February looks to be a wild ride.

Varga has played really well, and with his shooting it allows for Smith and Carroll to get into the lane.

The size of Ballard and Male down low will give St.X problems. I’ll be interested in how they do against DeSales big man Kalle on Tuesday.

Yeah, Holmes' length was a problem for St. X on Friday. A good indictation of how things might play out in terms of size once St. X plays the teams mentioned.
