Recommended Posts

The Holidays are Over and there is about 5-6 weeks left in the regular season - Let's take a more in-depth look at Region 6

1.  Western (14-2)  The Warriors, coming off a championship in the King of the Smokies in TN, kept their good form going with a key district victory over a dangerous DeSales squad and beating Moore in their first-round LIT match-up.  Jr. G Trent Hinkle leads the team in scoring at 15.1ppg, but Julius Edmonds (13ppg) and fr. Kaden Magwood (12ppg) are also main contributors on this deep and very athletic team.  They tend to suffocate opponents with their speed and length inside.  Next up for Western in a huge 2nd round match-up with region rival J-town in the LIT on 1/11.

2.  PRP (11-3)  Coming out of the Holidays, the Panthers had a lay-off, and were then pushed to the brink by district rival Fairdale, but escaped with the 101-94 win in OT.  PRP has an impressive 3-man attack with jr. F Keith Robinson - the MAC's MVP (17.5ppg), jr. PG Zee McCown (16.4ppg)(who had 39 in the N. Laurel game!) and sr. C Vic Lado (14ppg).  Jr. G Greg Cole has also asserted himself lately, contributing at 10.5ppg and taking pressure off of McCown at the point. The Panthers struggle with lack of depth on the bench some games, but their starting 5 (6 when Dixon is healthy) can play with anyone.  PRP host region rival Fern Creek tonight in a LIT 2nd round match-up. 

3. Doss (11-4)  The Dragons traveled to Illinois to play in the Mater Dei Christmas Tournament and went an impressive 3-1.  The Dragons are lead by the strong duo of sr.'s Inslee Carroll (18.9ppg), Tony Moss (17.4ppg).  They have an experienced squad and will likely stay in the top 5 most of the season.  Next up for Doss is a LIT 2nd round match-up with Southern on 1/11

4. Jeffersontown (10-3)  The Chargers, after winning the South Oldham Holiday Classic, took on Male on 1/8 and pushed them to the end but lost 83-77. The Vasser brothers (sr. Will 15.1ppg and so. Dre 13ppg) have been leading the way for the Chargers, but F Lavonte Harris, G Terrall Cleaves and W Xavier Price all chip-in, averaging around 10ppg.   They have the athleticism to give any team trouble.  Up next for J-Town is a HUGE LIT 2nd round game vs. Western on 1/11!

5. Butler  (9-6) Coming off a successful Holiday run, the Bears had a long break, but then defeated Valley in their first round LIT match-up. Mershon Dickerson (16.2ppg), Julion Beard (11.6ppg), and Chavez Woods (11.3ppg) lead Butler in scoring.  The Bears travel to Atherton for their LIT 2nd round match-up.

6. Iroquois (14-2)  The upstart Raiders continue to move up the rankings!  Their last "upset" was defeating Bullitt East in the first round of the LIT. The Q is  paced by sr. Davion Burton (13.4ppg), but jr. Jordan Williamson (11.5ppg) has been stepping up of late to contribute.  They travel to top-seed Ballard for a 2nd round LIT match-up on 1/11

7. Southern  (8-5) The Trojans won their first-round LIT match-up over Waggener.  The Trojans are led by sr. G Cam Pfiester (17.3ppg) and sharpshooter Xavier Shobe (13.1ppg), and 6'9" sr. C Evan Fredrick has stepped up his scoring of late (10.5ppg).  Next up for the Trojans is a 2nd round LIT match-up with Doss on 1/11.

8. Fern Creek (6-9)  The Tigers have played a tremendous schedule, so don't let the losing record fool you.  The are 4-2 in region play, defeating district rival Bullitt East last week. As expected, sr. Darian Lewis is pacing FC at 16.6ppg, and fellow sr. G Jaden Schooler is at 12.1ppg.  They next play at PRP in a 2nd round LIT game on 1/11.

9. Bullitt East  (8-6)  The Chargers have gone 1-2 since the last update - the last game being a loss to Iroquois in the first round of the LIT.  Sr. Tucker Blandford is the leader of BE (16.1ppg) but jr. G Nolan Davenport is chipping in at 11.5ppg.  Up next for BE is Moore in a LIT consolation bracket game on 1/11.

10. DeSales (5-8)    DeSales lost to Fern Creek in their first-round LIT match-up.  The Colts currently have a balanced attack, with 4 players averaging double figures (Carter Bischoff leads team at 16.3ppg)  They next play Valley in a LIT consolation bracket game on 1/11.

11. Evangel  (5-7)  The Eagles had the week off after their game with Central was postponed.  Guards Christian Spalding (13.1ppg) and Kyran Tilley (12.1ppg) are pacing Evangel so far.  The Eagles next participate in the All "A" Classic.

12. Fairdale (7-8)  After a slow start, the Bulldogs are starting to get some traction.  After taking State top-10 PRP to overtime, they defeated Bullitt Central in a first round LIT game.  So.'s Jacob Tucker(19.9ppg) {Had 45 vs. PRP!} and Dalton Hicks (17.9ppg) give Fairdale a solid 1 2 punch.  Up next is a tough 2nd round LIT match up with Male on 1/11.
