BluegrassPreps.com 11th Region Boys Basketball Week 9 Review

Recommended Posts

1. Lexington Catholic (19-1) - The Knights finally fell from the ranks of the unbeaten this week but not in the way most expected. The much anticipated match up with North Laurel ended didn't go as planned as Lexington Catholic fell to PLD the night before but did recover nicely by destroying North Laurel. Ben Johnson solidified his case for Mr. Basketball with huge numbers all weekend. Catholic also picked up a win over Tates Creek early in the week. As the season comes to an end the Knights are scheduled to play Robertson County this week, a nice tune up going into the 43rd District Tournament. 

2. Frederick Douglass (13-1) - The Broncos picked up 2 more wins this week running their winning streak to 11 as they took down Scott County and Henry Clay. Douglass has shown all season they deserve to be in the discussion as one of the top teams in the state of Kentucky led by a 1st team all state player in DaShawn Jackson, and a legitimate contender for the 11th Region title. This week as the regular season comes to an end the Broncos are scheduled to play Sayre and Henry Clay. 

3. Paul Laurence Dunbar (10-5) - The Bulldogs got some revenge this week picking up a win over Lexington Catholic after falling to them in a close game the week before. They also picked up a win over Lexington Christian Academy earlier in the week. Dunbar fell to Ashland to end the weekend but had a huge effort from Nick Spalding all weekend. Dunbar is the only team to beat Lexington Catholic and Frederick Douglass this season and are another legitimate threat for a region title. The Bulldogs have completed their regular season schedule and like some other teams around the state decided to take the last week of the season off to avoid any potential Covid-19 quarantines before the postseason begins. 

4. Madison Central (14-8) - The Indians picked up 2 wins this week over George Rogers Clark and Barren County and dropped a game to Pulaski County.

Madison Southern (10-10) - The Eagles had a an interesting week as they had to use there "covid backup unit" but finished the week 3-1 with wins over Central Kentucky Homeschool, Model, and Garrard County and a lose to Pike County Central.
