Bluegrass Preps Week 6, 5th Region Review & Rankings

Lots of games changed due to the inclement weather but every team but one played at least one game. Spots 12-18 saw no change in the rankings from last week, although Bethlehem came up with a nice district win against Nelson County and North Hardin is playing better basketball and hopefully trending in the right direction. However, there is lots of change in the top eleven spots of the region, including the number 1 spot.

1.       John Hardin 9-5 (LW: 2)

The Bulldogs recapture the number one spot in the region as they go 2-0 last week with an 11-point overtime win against Central Hardin which should make it easier for them to be the number 1 seed in the district, and then a 10-point win against Taylor County in the 2A Sectional. They go head-to-head with #2 Larue County tonight (Monday, 1/10) in the 2A Sectional Championship game.

2.       Larue County 10-3 (LW:1)

Larue loses their top spot but will have a chance to reclaim that spot as they face off against number 1 John Hardin on Monday 1/10. The Hawks went 1-1 on the week with a loss to Iroquois and then a win over #17 Marion County. Cutter Boley had 13 and 20 points respectively in those two games.

3.       Adair County 9-4 (LW: 6)

The Indians move back into the top five this week, thanks in part to some losing by other teams but also by going 2-0 in their own games. Adair punched their ticket to the 2A State Tournament by beating Warren East by twenty-four and then a 5-point win over Franklin-Simpson. Connor Loy and Luke Janes were in double digits in both games. Lucas Pooler added 18 in the game against Franklin-Simpson

4.       Bardstown 6-5 (LW: 3)

Bardstown drops one spot this week. They played one game, a 2-point loss to Christian Academy of Louisville. Andrew Mason had an impressive performance with 33 points. The Tigers are on a 4-game losing streak. They travel to Collins and then host East Jessamine this week.

5.       Taylor County 8-7 (LW: 4)

Taylor County also drops one spot this week and rounds out the top five. They dropped two games this week. A one-point loss to Glasgow and then a 10-point loss to John Hardin. Taylor County hosts Thomas Nelson and then travels to Allen County-Scottsville.

6.       Campbellsville 8-6 (LW: 😎

Campbellsville moves up two spots this week after winning their lone game of the week against Caverna. The Eagles will be playing in the Class A this week. They meet Bethlehem tonight in the first round. The winner will move onto the semi-finals against Green County on Wednesday night.

7.       Elizabethtown 8-6 (LW: 11)

The Panthers have been moving in the right direction since starting off 0-5. Now 8-6, they crack the top ten for the first time this season. Etown had an 18-point win over Marion and a 24-point win over Meade County last week. This is an important week for the Panthers to show that they belong in the top ten, as well as determining their post-season seed in the 17th district as they face off against North Hardin and Central Hardin.

8.       Green County 8-7 (LW: 5)

Green County falls out of the top five after a 7-point loss to Metcalfe County last week. The Dragons await the winner of Campbellsville/Bethlehem in the semi-finals of the All A Classic.

9.       Thomas Nelson 9-4 (LW: 10)

The Generals go 2-1 this week and move up one spot in the top ten. They got thumped early in the week by a particularly good Franklin County team. They picked up a COVID win against North Hardin Christian and then won an overtime thriller against district rival Washington County. Braden Smith had fifteen points in the win against Washington County.

10.   Central Hardin 8-5 (LW: 9)

Central goes 1-1 this past week and drops one spot in the rankings. This Bruins ballclub seems to be just one or two big plays away from really getting things going in the right direction. But they seem to have a tough time putting 4 quarters together in games that matter. They’ll get a chance to right that this week. They travel to South Oldham for what should be a winnable game, then they host district rival Etown and then travel on Saturday to play highly ranked Pulaski County.

11.   Washington County 6-5 (LW:7)

The Commanders fall just outside the top ten this week after losing in overtime to Thomas Nelson. Washington County seems to be similar to Central Hardin in terms of consistency and momentum. They play Fort Knox in the first round of the All A Classic and should move on to play Caverna on Wednesday night. Those are two winnable games that should have the Commanders playing for an All A Regional Championship.
