BluegrassPreps.com 11th Region Boys Basketball Week 3 Review

Recommended Posts

Welcome to basketball in 2021, the coaches wear masks, a coin flip starts the game, and schedules change on a dime. Some really good match ups were cancelled and postponed this week and some teams didn't even get a chance to play. At some point you have to hope things will go back to normal and theses cancellations don't cost a team a chance at the postseason. Lets check out what did actually happen this week in the 11th Region. 


1. Lexington Catholic (8-0) - The Knights picked up 2 solid wins this week over Henry Clay and Collins. Both games were never close and the Knights continue to flex their muscles and dominate teams. Another huge week for Ben Johnson who had 29 points and 11 rebounds against Henry Clay and followed that up with 24 points and 5 rebounds against Collins. The Knights are showing not only are they the top team in the 11th Region but a legit contender for a state championship. This week the Knights head to Louisville to play Christian Academy of Louisville and Trinity then end the week with a trip to Harrison County. 

2. Paul Laurence Dunbar ( 4-0) - The Bulldogs were off this week because of Covid-19 quarantine and didn't play any games. They stay at 2 right now because nobody directly below them has either played or done enough to jump them. PLD returns to action this week but will be without the services of leading scorer Tim Hall and another starter Cade Hilt. An interesting match up with Bryan Station leads the week off then they finish with 43rd District rival Tates Creek. 

3. Frederick Douglass (3-1) - The Broncos returned to action this past weekend and traveled to Mason County and picked up a nice win. Stats hadn't been posted at the time I was writing this. This week a big inter-region match up with Madison Central starts off the week for the Broncos and then a trip to a hot Bryan Station to end the week. Douglass will get a chance to make a statement this week if they can pull of 2 wins. 

4. Madison Central (4-2) - The Indians returned to action after a lay off as well. Only one game this week and they dropped one to Pikeville in a close contest as part of the Brent Ray Classic. Senior Kole Brown had a big night with 27 points including his 1,000th career point. Senior Braeden Ray was out of action against Pikeville. This week Madison Central travels to Frederick Douglass and North Laurel while hosting Lafayette between the two. 

5. Bryan Station (3-0) - The Defenders were ANOTHER team who had been out of action for a while but returned this week and picked up a nice win over Bourbon County. JMarious Lindsay had a huge game with 27 points while Trent Grundy chipped in 15. This week the competition will take a step up as the Defenders head to a short handed PLD and then host 42nd District rival Frederick Douglass. 

6. Lexington Christian Academy (6-2) - The Eagles picked up 2 wins this week over Central Kentucky Homeschool and Anderson County. The win over Anderson County was quite impressive as LCA won by 37 points!! Tanner Walton scored 25 points and Tyler Hall added 20 himself. This week LCA heads to Tates Creek for a 43rd District seed game. 

7. Henry Clay (4-3) - The Blue Devils only played one game last week and they fell to Lexington Catholic by 15 points, a relatively close margin considering how much the Knights have been beating people by lately. Aziel Blackwell continues to have a breakout season for the Blue Devils with 17 points and 8 rebounds against Lexington Catholic. Henry Clay returns to action this weekend with a big 42nd District seed game against Scott County then hosts Belfry this weekend. 

8. Scott County (3-5) - The Cardinals picked up 2 much needed wins this week over Lafayette and Bourbon County. After a slow start to the season Scott County looks to continue to right the ship. Nick Mosby and Elias Richardson had big weeks to help lead the Cardinals. Some big games upcoming as Scott County heads to Bryan Station and hosts Henry Clay in two big 42nd District seed games then ends the weekend with a HUGE test against the states leading scoring team George Rogers Clark.

9. Madison Southern (3-5) - The Eagles picked up 2 wins this past week over Garrard County and Harrison County but lost to a good Somerset team as well. Madison Southern got off to a slow start to the season but seem to be headed in the right direction under Coach Newton. Trent DeVries continues to have a good start to the season averaging 18.2 points per game. This week the Eagles host Pulaski County and Berea before traveling to Clinton County this weekend. 

10. Lafayette (2-5) - The Generals lost two close games this week to good competition in Scott County and Simon Kenton. Although the record may not show it, Lafayette is playing much better then expected. Seniors Torri Turner and Will Stanfield are having nice seasons for Lafayette. This week the Generals head to Madison Central and host Lexington Christian Academy, two good tests for them!

11. Tates Creek (2-5) - The Commodores have been short handed for a while now due to their JV team being quarantined. They are starting to get some guys back now but big props to them for playing for 2 weeks with basically only 6 players. This past week they dropped games to two quality teams in GRC and Boyle County. Sam Parrish continues to shine though, this week he averaged 24 points per game. This week Tates Creek hosts Somerset, travels to PLD, and then faces Western Hills on a neutral court. 

12. Great Crossing (1-5) - The Warhawks have been in Covid-19 quarantine this past week therefore havent played any games. Their lone win over Franklin County puts them in this spot ahead of the teams directly below them. Great Crossing returns to action this weekend as they head to Grant County. 

13. Franklin County (3-3) - The Flyers had a nice week picking up wins over rival Western Hills and on the road at Owen County. The Flyers football players seem to be rounding into basketball shape and its showing on the court. Junior Zac Cox had a real nice game against Owen County with 21 points. This week the Flyers head to Danville and Frankfort. Two quality match ups for FC. With wins this week they could climb up the rankings. 

14. Sayre (4-1) - The Spartans are another team who have been off due to Covid-19 quarantine and havent played anyone in 2 weeks. They do return to action this week with a match up on the road against Woodford County. 

15. Western Hills (2-4) - The Wolverines only had 1 games this week as they fell to rival Franklin County. Three games are on the schedule this week as Western Hills hosts Anderson County, travels to Model, and then faces off with Tates Creek at Franklin County as part of the Gary Moore Classic. 

16. Frankfort (4-4) - The Panthers picked up 3 wins this week but it wasnt against the toughest competition as they beat Somerset Christian, Nicholas County, and Berea. Big man Jackson Twombly continues to post near double doubles every game for the Panthers. This week Frankfort only has one game on the schedule but its a big one against crosstown rival Franklin County. 

17. Berea (1-3) - The Pirates only had 1 game this week and they lost to Frankfort. This week Berea faces off with St. Patrick, Madison Southern, and Trinity Christian. Some winnable games for sure for the Pirates. 

18. Model (1-4) - The Patriots havent played in 2 weeks due to Covid-19 quarantine but do return to action this week. Model will face off with Paris, Somerset Christian, and Western Hills. 

19. Frankfort Christian Academy (0-3) - The Royals returned to action this week after a long lay off and dropped 2 games to Danville Christian and Casey County. Up next FCA faces off with Riverside Christian.
