12th Region Boys Basketball Week 10 Review and Postseason Preview

Recommended Posts

With the wrinkles of this modified season, district tournament play commenced last week after regular season games concluded. This includes an incredible upset that ended the high school career of one of the best players to have lace them up in the 12th.

The final rankings are based only on regular season action.

End of Regular Season Team Rankings

1. Boyle County – The Rebels finished the regular season with wins over Danville Christian and (narrowly) Garrard County. Hagan Webb scored 18 in the win over Garrard. Boyle faces Garrard again in the district semifinals.

2. Lincoln County - The Patriots picked the right time to get hot. They defeated Somerset 61 to 52. Jaxon Smith scored 15 in the win. They face off against Danville. Lincoln split the regular season series with the Ads, defeating them at home 59 to 51 in the most recent matchup, but losing the first game on the road 63 to 53.

3. East Jessamine – The Jaguars defeated Montgomery County by 7. Devin Johnson scored 29 points, going 7 out of 10 from three point range. East faces off against Mercer County, a team they beat 54 to 28 on February 4th.

4. Somerset – The Briar Jumpers fell to Lincoln County 61 – 52 to end the regular season then fell to Rockcastle County by 4 in the district semifinals to end their season. Mr. Basketball Finalist and Regional Player of the Year Kade Grundy ends the year with an average of 19.3 points per game.

5. West Jessamine – The Colts took the last week off. They face Burgin in the district semifinals. They defeated Burgin 93 to 44 on January 23.

6. Pulaski County - The Maroons ended up not playing last week so they went well rested into their district semifinal but still were almost nearly upset by Casey County. They now face Rockcastle County in the championship tilt.

7. Danville - The Admirals defeated Casey County at home 83 to 73. They face Lincoln County in a win or go home scenario in the district semifinal at Boyle County. They split the regular season series with the Pats.

8. Mercer County - The Titans had the week off. They face off against upstart regional contender East Jessamine in the district semifinals. They fell the first time around 54 to 28.

9. McCreary County Central - The Raiders had no games this last week. They ride the bye into the district finals where they will play the winner of Southwestern and Wayne County.

10. Southwestern – The Warriors fell to Barren County by 3. Their season hangs in the balance as they take on Wayne County in the district semifinals. They defeated the Cardinals 82 to 66 back in January.

11. Rockcastle County - The Rockets defeated Burgin by 22 to end the regular season. They then clinched a regional tournament berth since the 2016-2017 season by defeating Somerset. It is the first time Rockcastle will be in regional tournament play under hometown hero Coach Andrew Cash. There is also a chance Rockcastle could defeat Pulaski for the district title as the Rockets only lost the last matchup by seven.

They defeated Danville Christian by 8 in the district first round game. Ethan Cooper had 23 in the postseason victory. They have a rematch against the mighty Rebels of Boyle County in the semifinals.

14. Wayne County - The Cardinals fell to both South Laurel and Garrard County, losing to the Golden Lions by 1. They face Southwestern in the district semifinals.

15. Somerset Christian – Somerset Christian fell to Garrard County, Clinton County, and Adair County. They are not participating in postseason play so their season is over. Luke Atwood finished the year with 15 points per game and Braydon Moore averaged 14.8.

16. Danville Christian - The Warriors fell to Boyle County before soundly defeating Berea 55 – 32. Titus Boyd has 23. Danville Christian’s season came to an end with a district first round loss to Garrard County.

Should be some great games. I hope we can get the better of the Pats but it will be difficult they are playing well. Coach Jackson is tough to beat this time of year. Danville 64 Lincoln  62. I think Boyle will come out swinging after last round and will try to establish that they are the #1 seed. They had better not let Garrard stick around and gain confidence early. If Boyle comes to play Boyle 78 Garrard 61.
