BluegrassPreps.com 13th Region Week 9 Review

Recommended Posts

1. North Laurel (19-2, 7-0)
The Jaguars took two losses in the chin this past weekend against Ashland Blazer and Lexington Catholic. Now it’s going to be interesting to see how North Laurel responds this week before postseason play begins. 

2. Harlan County (18-4, 5-3)
The three-game losing skid midway through the season looks to be a blessing in disguise for The Black Bears. Harlan County has now won five in a row entering postseason play. 
3. South Laurel (15-5, 11-3)
No one would have ever thought the Cardinals would have 15 wins at this point of the season after what the program is graduated the past two years. But here they are, 15-5, with two wins over Corbin, a win over Trinity and Knox Central to just name a few this season. 
4. Corbin (11-6, 10-4)
The Redhounds remain the hottest team in the region with an eight-game win streak. Corbin has beaten Clay County, Knox Central (twice), Madison Southern and Lynn Camp during the streak.
5. Knox Central (13-5, 7-3)
The two time defending 13th Region champions struggled this past week, going 1-2 with losses to both Corbin and South Laurel. Senior Jevonte Turner turned in a fantastic week, scoring 48 points, 43 points and 38 points, respectively. 
6. Harlan (14-5, 5-2)
The Green Dragons came away with the Pikeville Invitational championship this weekend by going 2-0. Jordan Akal continues to impress, scoring 20 and 42 points, respectively, in the two games. 
7. Bell County (14-10, 9-6)
The Bobcats are red-hot, winners of two in a row and nine of their last 11 games. The duo of Cameron Burnett and Dawson Woolum have almost been unstoppable. 
8. Clay County (12-7, 8-5)
The Tigers are 1-2 during their past three games but those losses were against some good teams — Harlan and Covington Catholic. Clay County has enough talent to win the Region tourney, the Tigers just need some consistency and momentum going into postseason play. 
9. Barbourville (10-11, 6-8)
Injuries and sickness has slowed Barbourville down but the Tigers have won two of three with wins coming against Burgin and Red Bird. 
10. Lynn Camp (10-10, 6-6)
The talent is there but the consistency isn’t just yet for the Wildcats. They have one of the best scorers in the region in Micah Engle whole shot blocker Gavin Allen recorded his 100th block of the season this past week. 
11. Pineville (9-10, 4-7)
The Mountain Lions were able to stop a three-game losing skid by defeating Red Bird, 78-47, this past week. 
12. Middlesboro (5-10, 4-10)
The Yellow Jackets had won three of their last four games before being quarantined. Hopefully, they can continue their recent success once they get back on the playing floor. 
13. Williamsburg (10-8, 4-7)
Eric Swords has done a fantastic job with the Yellow Jackets during his first year as was coach f the program. Williamsburg is much-improves and especially dangerous when Micah Steely is on. 
14. Whitley County (4-15, 3-14)
The Colonels started the season with three consecutive wins, they’re 1-15 since. 
15. Jackson County (4-10, 3-5)
The Cardinals have dropped four straight going into the final week of regular season play.
16. Red Bird (0-17, 0-14)
The Cardinals have another tough slate this week with games against North Laurel, Harlan and Barbourville.
