BluegrassPreps.com 10th Region Boys Basketball Week 7 Review


Recommended Posts


Much of Region 10 was hit by a double whammy in week 7, COVID as well as weather.  As for myself, I hope to get out of the driveway for the first time in a week after filing this erstwhile report.

There were two thrillers this week, one in Mount Sterling and one in Augusta.  Let's get into it.


1).  Clark County (11-2, 7-0 region, 4-0 district, .639 RPI). No games played in week 7.

Previous rank - 1

This week - vs. Lexington Catholic, at Wolfe County, at Montgomery County

COVID wiped out the Cardinals' week 7 schedule.  Lexington Catholic on the road will be a stern test, but most of us avid tenth region watchers are eagerly awaiting the Saturday contest in Mt. Sterling.  Will GRC have their basketball legs back under them by then?

2).  Mason County (11-3, 5-2 region, 2-0 district, .618 RPI) -  79-76 OT win at Montgomery County.

Previous rank - 3

This week - at Harrison County, vs. Fleming County, at Augusta.

Mason County takes over as the tenth's hottest team on the strength of Saturday's overtime thriller in Mount Sterling; and are now riding a six-game win streak.  Terrell Henry, AP Perry and Nate Mitchell scored 70 of the Royals' 79; with Henry grabbing a dozen boards to go along with his 28 points.  Don't overlook Harrison County away; a classic "trap game".

3).  Montgomery County (8-3, 6-2 region, 2-1 district, .606 RPI) - 76-79 OT loss vs. Mason County

Previous rank - 2

This week - at Paris, vs. Madison Central, vs. Clark County.

The Indians only got to play one game of the four scheduled last week, but what it game it was.  Montgomery was riding it own 6-game streak, but Mason County came calling and stole one, as MoCo outshot and outrebounded the visitors.  However, 11-17 free throw shooting (18-24 for the Royals) was the difference on the stat sheet.  Hagan Harrison had a monster game; 41 points on 17-33 (the rest of the team only took 28) shots to go with a team-high 15 rebounds.  Ricky Lovette had the second Indian double-double with 15 (6-8 shooting) and 11.  Lovette has recorded a double-double in all eleven games this season.  Madison Central and most especially Clark County make for intriguing week 8 matchups.

4).  Campbell County (11-6, 6-2 region, 2-1 district, .588 RPI) - 59-36 win vs, Cooper, 55-68 loss at St. Henry, 55-73 loss vs. Beechwood

Previous rank - 4

This week - at Augusta, at Conner, vs. Holmes.

Campbell went 1-2 last week in a typical NKY/9th region slate of games.  The usual cast of characters (Garrett Beiting, Aydan Hamilton and Eric Davie) reached double figures and throttled the Jags on 31% shooting for the game.  Dane Hegyi joined the other three in double figures in the loss to St, Henry, with Davie grabbing a team-high 8 rebounds. Beiting with 15 and Hegyi against Beechwood, but this one was never close.

5).  Scott (9-6, 3-0 region, 2-0 district, .580 RPI) - 60-58 win vs. Newport, 71-44 win vs. Pendleton County

Previous rank - 5

This week - vs. Dixie Heights, at Beechwood, at Bishop Brossart

Grant Proffitt had 23 in the Newport game; a close affair that saw Newport miss a desperation heave at the buzzer.  In one of those statistical oddities, Scott was only credited with 12 rebounds for the game as a team.  Sometimes the stats just don't add up.   Proffitt (15/14) and Cameron Patterson (22/10 on 10-13shooting from the field).both notched double-doubles in the romp over Pendleton County.    

6).  Robertson County (8-3, 4-2 region, 0-1 district, .555 RPI) - 101-81 win vs, Bath County

Previous rank - 6

This week - at Fleming County, at Pendleton County, vs. Bracken County (per the Scoreboard).

Coach Kelsch's squad was slated to represent the 10th region in the All-A tournament last week; but those of you who follow BGP know how that went.  I am guessing that the newly-formatted All-A tourney (which has the Devils playing on Wednesday at West Carter) could significantly impact the week 8 schedule when all is said and done.

7). Harrison County (9-7, 6-4 region, 2-1 district, .512 RPI) - 69-56 win at Augusta, 68-46 win at Nicholas County.

Previous rank - 7

This week - vs. Mason County, at Bishop Brossart, vs. Bryan Station.

James Soard (19) and JD Kendall (13) paced the Breds in the win over Augusta.  I'm calling for a close one hosting Mason County on Tuesday.  There are no games currently showing on Harrison County's schedule after next week.

8).  Bishop Brossart (6-8, 4-2 region, 0-1 district, .471 RPI) - 55-60 loss at Lloyd, 77-53 win at Bourbon County, 57-64 loss at Grant County, 51-79 loss vs. Highlands.

Previous rank - 8

This week - vs. Pendleton County, at Lewis County, vs. Harrison County, vs. Scott

The 'stangs finally hit the hardwood in week 7 after an extended (nearly two weeks) absence.  The took care of business in their lone 10th region tilt with Bourbon County (Stephen Verst and Carson Schirmer with 26 and 13 respectively), but didn't fare as well against OOR competition.  Verst and Schirmer each notched 16 in the close loss at Lloyd and 20 apiece against Grant County.  Highlands broke open a close game halfway through the second quarter and cruised the rest of the way.  Broosart big man David Govan missed this one; while Verst and Schirmer each scored 14 (do I detect a pattern here?).  Back-to-back games with Harrison and Scott should be strenuous but competitive; particularly if Govan's ankle will cooperate.

9).  Calvary Christian (12-5, 3-3 region, 0-2 district, .505 RPI) - 52-36 win at Dayton, 73-41 win at Bellevue, 65-26 win at St. Patrick.

Previous rank - 11

This week - vs. Ludlow, at Pendleton County, vs. Hillsboro (OH) Christian, vs. North Hardin Christian, at Walden.

The Cougars prepped for week 8's rare 5-week schedule with a trio of out-of-region wins.  Luke Ruwe led with 18 against Dayton, Ethan Mulling with 20 against Bellevue, then back to Ruwe with 19 against the Saints.  I'm looking with great interest at the game in Falmouth on Tuesday.  CC's current five-game win streak is the region's second-longest.

10). Augusta (8-5, 5-3 region, 3-1 district, .515 RPI) - 56-69 loss vs. Harrison County, 95-96 loss vs. Covington Holy Cross

Previous rank - 9

This week - at NewCath, vs. Campbell County, at Bath County, vs. Mason County.

Riley Mastin had 22 as the Panthers played Harrison County tough; and followed up with 32 as they played Holy Cross even tougher.  Kason Hinson added 31in the HC contest, which saw A-town lose a late lead on a (somewhat) controversial play.  For those who may not follow closely, Cross got within 1 with a couple of seconds to play, and without any timeouts remaining, rolled the ball out into the lobby; forcing the officials to stop the clock.  Panthers turned it over on the subsequent inbound and gave up the game-winner at the buzzer.  Wish I was there.  

11).  Bracken County (6-13 2-9 region, 0-3 district, .448 RPI) - 43-78 loss to Dixie Heights.

Previous rank - 10

This week - vs. NewCath, vs. Covington Holy Cross, vs. Paris, at Robertson County.

The Bears only got to play a single week 7 game, falling hard against Dixie.  Blake Reed led the team with 23, but no one else tallied more than half a dozen.  I always like to compare Bracken and rival Augusta in their game with common opponents, so I'll be checking this week's Holy Cross contest closely.

12). Pendleton County (7-5, 4-3 region, 2-0 district, .480 RPI) - 68-39 win vs. St. Patrick, 44-71 loss at Scott.  

Previous rank - 12

This week - at Bishop Brossart, vs. Calvary Christian, vs. Robertson County.

St. Patrick didn't prove to be much of a stumbling block in the win as 13 Wildcats cracked the scoring column and two more saw playing time.  Treydn Thomas and Braydon Kidwell had 16 and 13.  No stats for the Scott game, but the Eagles' Profitt and Patterson nearly matched Pendleton's point total.  

13).  Bourbon County (3-9, 3-5 region, 1-3 district, .435 RPI) - 53-77 loss vs. Bishop Brossart, 81-64 win vs. Paris, 60-76 loss vs. Madison Central.

Previous rank - 13

This week - at Woodford County, at Marion County, at Paris.

Parker Estes (16) and Jeremiah Jones (11) vs. Brossart; while Estes (21/11), Jack Huckabay (15) and David Green (14) reached double figures against Paris.

14). Nicholas County (4-12, 1-7 region, 0-2 district, .375 RPI) - 46-68 loss vs. Harrison County.  

Previous rank - 14

This week - vs. Powell County, vs. Paris, at Dayton, at Fleming County.

No stats yet for the Jackets' lone game of the week.  They have a decent chance of bolstering the W-L record in week 8.

15).  Paris (1-9, 0-7 region, 0-4 district, .385 RPI) - 64-81 loss at Bourbon County.

Previous rank - 15

This week - vs. Montgomery County, at Nicholas County, at Bracken County, at Bourbon County.

Ricquiece Washington had 17 and Jakan Ranson 14 against Bourbon, but the Houds went just 3-19 from behind the arc.

16).  St. Patrick (1-15, 0-8 region, 0-1 district, .304 RPI) - 39-68 loss at Pendleton County, 26-65 loss to Calvary Christian.

Previous rank - 16

This week - at Elliott County, vs. Villa Madonna, vs. Covington Latin.

Chase Walton with 16/10 and Allan Briseno with 12 in the loss in Falmouth.  The 26 points put up in the Calvary loss was the third-fewest of the season (Brossart, 17; Lewis County, 25).
