Recommended Posts

Girls Top 5


1. Clay County (13-3, 3-0)

What’s the scoop: James Burchell’s Lady Tigers remain atop the 13th Region ratings after going 2-0 this past week.


Surprise, surprise: Clay County has now put together an impressive four-game win streak and escaped Rockcastle County on Jan. 14 with a slim 49-47 win.


What’s ahead: The Lady Tigers will try to extend their 13th Region win streak to 36 games with a home game slated for Friday against North Laurel.

Clay County will be back in action the following day on the road against Conner and then a showdown on Monday at No. 2 Whitley County.

It’s an interesting week ahead for Burchell’s squad.


2. Whitley County (12-4, 7-1)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Colonels looked like they have righted their ship after losing to Middlesboro on Dec. 29.


Surprise, surprise: Whitley County didn’t have any trouble at all on the road against Boyle County. The Lady Colonels won with ease, 56-34.


What’s ahead: Whitley County will be on the road today against Lynn Camp and will host Rockcastle County Friday. The Lady Colonels have a home date scheduled with No. 1 Clay County Jan. 21.


3. Middlesboro (16-1, 12-1)

What’s the scoop: Middlesboro’s 18-point loss to Corbin last week must have woke up Elgie Green’s squad.


Surprise, surprise: The Lady Yellow Jackets are winners of four straight since losing to the Lady Redhounds, while outscoring their opponents by an average of 31 points a game.


Look for Williamsburg to capture the 13th Region All ‘A’ title this week at Barbourville.


What’s ahead: Middlesboro is still alive in the All ‘A’ Classic’s 13th Region Tournament and will travel to play North Laurel on Jan. 22.


4. South Laurel (11-7, 5-3)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Cardinals are 2-0 since losing against Pulaski County last week.


Surprise, surprise: South Laurel looked pretty good during the Lady Cardinals’ 59-22 win over Prestonsburg and in their 55-28 victory against Bell County.


What’s ahead: South Laurel has a key road game against 50th District rival Corbin today. A win is a must for the Lady Cardinals if they have any chance of still landing the No. 1 seed in the 50th District Tournament.

South Laurel will be back in action again Jan. 18 at home against Jackson County.


5. Corbin (9-7, 4-4)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Redhounds put up a valiant effort against Pike County Central before losing, 68-63.


Surprise, surprise: Things are looking good for Corbin. The Lady Redhounds responded with their loss to Pike County Central with an impressive 62-30 victory over Knox Central.


What’s ahead: Corbin will host South Laurel today in a key 50th District match-up. The Lady Redhounds will be back in action Jan. 21 at home against Williamsburg.

The top seven are solid.


I'd probably still give Cawood the edge at No. 10, since they did win at Harlan. They've lost a starter to injury though, so they now have a freshman and eighth-grader in the starting lineup.
