BluegrassPreps.com 11th Region Boys Basketball Week 8 Review

Recommended Posts

1. Lexington Catholic (17-0) - The Knights finished a tough week 4-0 with wins over South Laurel, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Covington Holy Cross, and Tates Creek. PLD gave Lexington Catholic their toughest test to date as Lex Cath pulled out a narrow 2 point win on the road in a game where Ben Johnson poured in 32 points and became the all time leading scorer in Lexington Catholic history! Congrats to Ben! This week the Knights host Tates Creek and Dunbar again before a HUGE showdown with North Laurel and phenom Reed Sheppard. 

2. Frederick Douglass (11-1) - The Broncos picked up 2 wins this week over Bardstown and Scott County and continue to show they are a true threat to Lexington Catholic. Senior guard DaShawn Jackson continues to stuff the stat sheet as he is averaging 23.3 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. This week the Broncos face off with Sayre and Scott County. 

3. Paul Laurence Dunbar (8-4) - The Bulldogs finished the week 1-2 with a big win over West Jessamine and narrow losses to Lexington Catholic and Trinity. Although they lost 2 games this week, Dunbar has shown they are for real and a serious threat to anyone on any given night. This week Dunbar faces off with Lexington Christian, Lexington Catholic, and Ashland, another week of tests for PLD. 

4. Madison Central (12-7) - The Indians finished the week 1-2 with a win over Montgomery County and losses to North Laurel and Covington Catholic. The Indians will never shy away from competition and this week gets no easier as they face off with George Rogers Clark, Pulaski County, and Henry Clay. 

5. Henry Clay (8-4) - The Blue Devils only played one game this week and fell to cross town rival Lafayette. Henry Clay is back in covid quarantine from everything I can tell. The Blue Devils have had a rough go of it this year when it comes to that stuff. Hopefully they can get it together for a run in March. This week the Blue Devils are scheduled to play Lafayette, Scott County, Sayre, Tates Creek, and Madison Central. 

6. Lexington Christian Academy (10-7) - The Eagles finished the week 2-1 with wins over Woodford County and Harlan, in the first round of the All A State Tournament, and a 1 point loss to Tates Creek. LCA continues play in the All A State Tournament this week as they face off with Pikeville in the second round. Also, scheduled for this week are 43rd District games with Paul Laurence Dunbar and Lafayette. 

7.Great Crossing (8-9) - The Warhawks had a big week going to 2-1 with wins over Western Hills, which locked them into the 1 seed in the 41st District, a big win over crosstown rival Scott County, and a loss at South Oldham. Great Crossing has been up and down all year but won the games they needed to finish as the 1 seed in the district. This week the Warhawks are scheduled to play Lafayette, Bryan Station, and Paris.  

8. Frankfort (12-6) - The Panthers finished the week 3-1 with wins over Frankfort Christian Academy, Franklin County, and Rockcastle County, and a 2 point loss at the buzzer to Great Crossing. The win over Franklin County caused a 3 way tie for the 2 seed in the 41st District and I would be willing to bet nobody wants to draw the Panthers. This week Frankfort is scheduled to play Nelson County, Mercer County, and Model. 

9. Scott County (7-7) - The Cardinals had a great start to the week picking up wins over Scott County and Sayre then ended the week with big losses to Frederick Douglass and Great Crossing. Scott County is another team who has been hit bad with quarantines and just cant seem to find a rhythm. This week Scott County is scheduled to play Henry Clay, Franklin County, Frederick Douglass, and Bardstown. 

10. Sayre (7-4) - The Spartans finished the week 1-3 but opened some eyes by nearly upsetting Scott County on the road. They did managae a win over Western Hills and a close lose to Estill County before falling hard to West Jessamine. This week Sayre is scheduled to play Franklin County, Frederick Douglass, Henry Clay, and Middlesboro. 

11. Lafayette (7-11) - The Generals make a big jump this week after going 4-0 with wins over Henry Clay, Garrard County, Franklin County, and Tates Creek. Quite an impressive week for Coach Mendenhall and the Generals. This week is another week full of tests as Lafayette is scheduled to play Henry Clay, Great Crossing, LCA, and Frederick Douglass, all teams currently ranked ahead of them, another good opportunity to climb the rankings.  

12. Madison Southern (7-9) - The Eagles went 1-2 on the week with a blowout win over Western Hills and losses to Corbin and Lincoln County. Madison Southern has shown they can beat teams ahead of them but since this is a week to week ranking this is where they sit currently. Up next the Eagles are scheduled to play Berea, Central Kentucky Homeschool, Model, Pike County Central, and Garrard County. 

13. Bryan Station (5-7) - The Defenders finished the week 1-3 with a win over Tates Creek and losses to Scott County, Knox Central, and Harrison County. This week the Defenders are scheduled to play Scott County, GRC, Great Crossing, and Woodford County. 

14. Tates Creek (5-12) - The Commodores went 1-3 this week with a win over LCA and losses to Bryan Station, Lafayette, and Lexington Catholic. This week Tates Creek is scheduled to play Lexington Catholic, West Jessamine, Henry Clay, and Franklin County. 

15. Franklin County (9-8) - The Flyers finished the week 1-2 with a win over Nelson County and losses to Frankfort and Lafayette. Franklin County is still without starters Zac Cox and Phillip Peiffer and its showing. Hopefully those two guys are back this week for FC. The Flyers are scheduled to play Sayre, Scott County, Frankfort Christian Academy, and Tates Creek this week. 

16. Western Hills (7-11) - The Wolverines finished 1-3 this week with a win over Frankfort Christian Academy and losses to Sayre, Great Crossing, and Madison Southern. This week Western Hills is scheduled to play Owen County and Montgomery County. 

17. Model (8-11) - The Patriots finished the week 2-0 with wins over Williamstown and Trinity Christian. This week Model is scheduled to play Madison Southern, Menifee County, and Frankfort. 

18. Berea (3-5) - The Pirates picked up 2 wins this week over Powell County and Owsley County and dropped a game to Estill County. This week Berea is scheduled to play Burgin, Bell County, Bath County, Nicholas County, and Pineville. 

19. Frankfort Christian Academy (4-12) - The Royals dropped two district games this week to Frankfort and Western Hills. Up next the Royals are scheduled to play Franklin County and Casey County.
