12th Region Boys Basketball Week 6 Review


Recommended Posts

Weather caused many games to be called off last week but the action we did see shows the gap between the top five and the rest of the region increasing. Beyond that, I think it is safe to say that someone unexpected may be able to sneak into the regional tournament as regional opponents continue to beat up on each other.


Team Rankings

1. Boyle County – The Rebels remain on top thanks to a 73 to 51 win at Wayne County. Luke Imfeld led the way with 19 points. On the schedule this week are matchups against Madison Southern, Berea, and Frederick Douglass.

2. Somerset – The Briar Jumpers defeated Garrard County at home before a road loss at Bardstown. Kade Grundy has eclipsed 2000 career points and currently sits alone at the top of Somerset’s all-time scoring list. He did not play against Bardstown, severely limiting their chances, though Dylan Burton (23 points) and Gavin Stevens (19 points) tried their best to fill the void. They head to the All A State Tournament this week, facing the Bearcats of Walton-Verona in the first round.

3. West Jessamine – Coach Damon Kelley recorded his 300th career victory as the Colts dominated district opponent Mercer County. DeAjuan Stepp had 28 points, complemented by Brett Bush’s 13.  West has round 2 against East this week followed by trips to Montgomery County and Collins.

4. Lincoln County - The Patriots’s woes continued as they fell to Lexington Catholic at home 63 to 45. Baylor Mattingly led the way in the losing effort with 14 points. Lincoln County hosts Mercer County and Danville this week before traveling to Madison Southern.

5. Pulaski County - The Maroons recorded an overtime win in what many believe may be the ultimate road atmosphere – Clay County’s Keith Gymnasium. They are on the road all of next week with scheduled trips to Wayne County, South Laurel, and McCreary Central.

6. East Jessamine –East couldn’t keep the momentum from the previous week and their win over George Rogers Clark as they fell on the road by 10 to Rockcastle County. Ben McNew recorded 17 points and Zion Thomas scored 16. They face archrival West Jessamine for the second time this year before traveling to face Great Crossing.

7. Danville - The Admirals fell 78 to 53 at the hands of Russell County on the road in their sole game last week. Channing Ford led scoring for Danville, ending up with 14 points. They face Garrard County, Frankfort and Lincoln County this week.

8. Rockcastle County - The Rockets had two big wins over East Jessamine and Casey County before falling to Russell County on the road. Daniel Mullins dropped 31 points in the win over East. They face Berea, Garrard County, and Mercer County this week.

12. Mercer County - The Titans remain winless in February with losses to West Jessamine and Nelson County. Sam Baughman and Evan Hart are both averaging right above 11 points per game. They face Lincoln County, Rockcastle County, and Franklin County this week.

Wow this weather. Scheduling nightmare for district matchups. Top five seem to be solid teams and will be tough outs in the region. Next 6 show signs of improvement and are trying to put some pieces together. Bottom 6 got a lot of work to do but with cancellations and no practice tough to overcome.
