Recommended Posts

1. North Laurel (16-0 overall, 7-0
vs. 13th Region opponents)

The Jaguars remain unbeaten but did have a tough time with Somerset on Saturday before pulling out a 75-69 win.
Super sophomores Reed Sheppard and Ryan Davidson each continue to play well. Sheppard had 41 points against the Briar Jumpers while Davidson finished with 19. Davidson led the way with 24 points during North Laurel’s 87-46 win over Whitley County while Sheppard has 19 points and 11 assists. Clay Sizemore finished with 19 points, too. 
Pat Forde of Sports Illustrated was in attendance during the Whitley County game, doing a feature on Sheppard. 

2. Knox Central (9-3, 5-1)
The Panthers have responded with three straight wins (Clay County, Lynn Camp and Barbourville) since their loss to Corbin a few weeks ago.
Knox Central senior Jevonte Turner recorded his 1,000th career point this past week and continues to lead the Panthers in scoring with a 22.9 scoring average. He also leads the team with 9.2 rebounds per game. 

3. South Laurel (11-4, 9-3)
Jeff Davis’ Cardinals continue to win. This very well could be Davis’ best coaching job. His Cardinals are allowing only a 13th Region-best 49.1 points per game.
South Laurel has won five of its last seven games with the two losses coming against No. 1 ranked North Laurel.

4. Harlan County (13-4, 4-3)
The Black Bears were able to snap a three-game losing skid by recording an 83-49 win over Buckhorn on Saturday.
Tyler Cole led the way with 24 points while Trent Noah finished with 10 points and nine rebounds. 

5. Corbin (8-6, 8-4)
Tony Pietrowski’s Redhounds are winners of five straight, and look to be peaking at the right time. 
Corbin beat both Clay County and Lynn Camp this past week with Hayden Llewellyn continuing to shine. He leads Corbin with a 23.8 scoring average while Dakota Patterson is coming on strong. He’s averaged a double-double this past week.

6. Clay County (9-4, 6-3)
The Tigers were able to snap a three-game losing skid by upending Harlan, 75-70, at home on Saturday.
Senior Connor Robinson leads the team with a 28.2 scoring average and a 7.7 rebounding average while Connor Farmer is averaging 15.5 points per game and Raven Abner is averaging 14.8 points per game.

7. Harlan (10-3, 8-2)
The Green Dragons saw their three-game win streak get snapped on Saturday after falling on the road to Clay County, 75-70.
Jordan Akal is averaging 26.6 points per game while Jaedyn Gist continues to average a double-double (14.0, 11.6).

8. Barbourville (7-8, 5-6)
The Tigers are 1-5 during their past six games but coach Cody Messer continues to do a fantastic job with his team. Barbourville hung tough before losing to Knox Central, 79-69, on Saturday.
Matthew Gray (22.2) scored his 100th point this past week.

9. Lynn Camp (7-6, 4-5) 
The Wildcats had a chance to move up in the rankings this week but consecutive losses to both Knox Central and Corbin dropped them to the No. 9 spot. Junior Micah Engle continues to play well. He leads the team with a 21.2 scoring average while Gavin Allen is averaging 10.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.

10. Middlesboro (5-19, 4-10)
The Yellow Jackets saw their three-game win streak come to an end after falling 53-41 to Harlan on Friday.

11. Bell County (8-9, 3-6)
The Bobcats looked like they had turned things around after winning three in a row but dropped a 65-48 decision to South Laurel on Saturday.

12. Pineville (5-6, 2-4)
The Mountain Lions haven’t played in a week due to inclement weather. 

13. Williamsburg (7-5, 2-5)
I like the direction coach Eric Swords has his Yellow Jackets going. They are winners of two straight and are led by Micah Steely, who is averaging 22.2 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game.

14. Jackson County (4-8, 3-4)
Mother Nature kept the Generals from playing a game this past week. They are currently riding a two-game losing skid.

15. Whitley County (3-9, 2-8)
The Colonels have now lost nine in a row after falling to both North Laurel and Pike Central this past week.

16. Red Bird (0-9, 0-7)
The Cardinals are still searching for their first win after falling to Bell County this past week, 70-37.
