BluegrassPreps.com 5th Region Week 5 Review and Rankings

Recommended Posts

A few changes in the rankings this week, including the top spot.

1.       Larue County (9-2) (LW-2)

The Hawks move into the top spot this week after capturing the crown in the Magnolia Bank Holiday Classic that they hosted. They went 3-0 through the week and have won 4-straight.

2.       John Hardin (8-5) (LW-5)

The Bulldogs move back up into the number 2 spot after a nice week, going 3-0, dropping Louisville Moore and an impressive win against Boyle County. Their 3rd win was a COVID RPI win.

3.       Bardstown (6-4) (LW-1)

Bardstown drops to its lowest spot in the rankings this season. They lost 3 in a row while visiting Lexington Catholic. Bryce Riley averaged just over 15 points a game in the 3 losses.

4.       Taylor County  (8-5) (LW-3)

Taylor also drops one spot as it goes 1-2 this past week. A loss to Marshall County opened their post-Christmas tournament, followed by an overtime loss to Washington County and then an overtime win against Scott County. Taylor travels to Glasgow and then hosts John Hardin on Friday.

5.       Green County (8-6) (LW-7)

Green moves up the rankings this week after a nice 2-1 week. Their lone loss this week was to Todd County Central by 10, the Dragons followed that with a 30-point win against Montgomery Central of Cunningham TN.

6.       Adair County (7-4) (LW-4)

The Indians go 1-2 over the last week after having a week off. The lowlight of the week was a 23-point loss to Danville. The Indians rebounded nicely with a 5-point win against Monroe County.

7.       Washington County (6-4) (LW-6)

Stevie Woodson’s Commanders drop one spot this week with a 1-2 week. They dropped their first game of the week to Madison Southern, came back for an overtime win against Taylor County and then dropped an 8-point decision to Campbellsville.

8.       Campbellsville (7-6) (LW-8)

The Eagles hold steady at number 8 but are building momentum and could easily jump up a few spots over the next few weeks. Their 8-point win against Washington County was highlighted by Jay Milburn who had 23 points and 11 rebounds.

9.       Central Hardin (7-4)  (LW-9)

The Bruins hold onto a top 10 spot going 2-1 in Gatlinburg after being off the week before. The Bruins have a full week, playing Barren County, John Hardin, North Hardin & Washington County this week.

10.   Thomas Nelson (7-3) (LW-10)

The Generals round out the top 10 again this week, after going 2-0 in the last week. With double digit wins in both of their games, they’ll look to keep that momentum rolling as they hit the hardwood 3 times next week.

11.   Elizabethtown (6-6) (LW-11)

The Panthers are just barely on the outside looking in on the top 10. After dropping the first 5 games of the year, they are winners of 6 of their last 7 games and will get to test how much they’ve improved when they face Warren Central on Saturday.

12.   Bethlehem (5-6) (LW-12)

The Eagles will look to come out well rested as they haven’t played a game since Dec. 22 and won’t play until January 7th. Will they have plenty of energy or play a little rusty?

13.   Caverna (7-7) (LW-15)

The Colonels move up 2 spots after going 3-0 this week. They’ll have a chance to improve on that as they play Campbellsville and district rival Hart County this week.

14.   North Hardin (4-7) (LW-13)

The Trojans have been off since the 22nd of December. They’ll jump back into action on Tuesday night as they travel to Hart County. The Trojans need to get momentum going in January early, and hopefully they’ll be able to live up to the pre-season hype.

15.   Hart County (3-8) (LW- 14)

The Raiders move down one spot after a 1-2 showing at the Henry County Invitational. Hart faces off against Franklin Simpson in the 2A sectional on Sunday, and then host North Hardin on Tuesday. These are games that the Raiders need to be competitive in.

16.   Nelson County (2-9) (LW-16)

Nelson County goes 1-2 at Larue County this past week, with their 2nd win of the year coming against winless Logan County. Their big game of the week will come on Friday night when they play district rival Bethlehem.

17.   Marion County (1-13) (LW-17)

Marion finally gets its first win of the year against Hancock County by 5. They had a 9-point loss to Boyle earlier in the week that seemed much closer than 9 points. Hopefully the Knights can start putting some W’s together and maybe we  will catch a glimpse of how good James Jewell can be.

18.   Fort Knox (0-7) (LW-18)

The Golden Eagles didn’t play any games this week. They aren’t scheduled to return to the court until next Saturday. Hopefully the 18-day layoff will bring the Eagles back to the court well-rested and healthy and a bit more competitive.
