  1. Newly eligible 6' 11" Cyr Malonga made his debut last night in this game. He is raw and needs to get stronger for sure, but showed flashes of being a very high-level player. Good hands, runs very well, good court vision in Evangel's press break. When Evangel gets to full-strength (jr Gage Mabry is eligible for varsity starting Friday?) - I expect them to make some noise in the all A.
  2. 6th Region after week 7 We are starting to see some movement in the rankings now that all the teams have a few weeks under their belts - let's see what's happening! (season averages in parenthesis) 1. DeSales (10-5) The Colts continue to take on a brutal schedule. With Covid changing the schedules for many teams - DeSales picked up two opponents this week - #2 in state Ballard (88-83 loss) and #8 in state Oldham Co. (77-72 loss) While they lost both games, it did little to knock them out of their #1 in region ranking. Senior Devin Perry has cemented himself as the likely player of the year in the region, putting up 40 vs. Male and raising his season average to 20.1p a game. Sekou Kalle continues to be a force (19.3p/11r) inside to give DeSales possibly the best 1-2 punch in the Louisville area. The Colts return to the court on 2/22 - traveling to Collins 2. Fern Creek (5-4) The Tigers are another team that has played an extremely tough schedule. They sandwiched a good win over a tough Doss squad (73-63) between losses to juggernauts Ballard (74-71) and Bowling Green (70-54) Jr Darian Lewis is pacing the Tigers (14.6p) in scoring, and sr. guard Jaden Rodgers has returned from injury to play some minutes the last couple of games. FC also got news that FL transfer TJ Toney will be eligible this week - which will give their backcourt a boost. They return to the court on 2/26 vs. Manual. 3. PRP (6-2) The Panthers had very solid week - defeating district foe Holy Cross 89-61 and then beating Doss 86-73. Soph Zee McCown leads the Panthers in scoring(18.1) and assist, but they are starting to get help from jr. Vic Lado (11p/7r) and after a slow start, sr. G Nevin White is rounding into form (21p/8r vs. Doss). They next host Evangel on 2/22. 4. Doss (5-2) The Dragons have raced out to a 5-0 record, but lost this week to tough opponents Fern Creek (73-63) and PRP (86-73). Senior Tony Moss (17.7p/ 8r) is leading the team, but sharpshooters jr. Inslee Carroll (13p) and sr. Jeremiah Glover(12p) (30p outing in the PRP game) make up a solid 3-headed attack for Doss.

Luke Easley, who scored his 1000th point this past weekend, is averaging 14 a game. They host Cloverport on 2/23. 12. Evangel (4-7) The Eagles did not play this week with the all "A" being postponed. So. Dawson Black continues to lead Evangel in scoring (20p) and 8th grader Ben Tshaka is at 10p. 10th grader C Cyr Malonga and jr.

Fern Creek (Last Seasons Champion) (4-2) After starting the season 4-0 with victories over Central, Greenwood, Southern, and a well respected J-town., the Tigers lost twice this week - to DeSales (75-57) and Trinity (61-45). Jr Darian Lewis has led the Tigers (15.5p) thru 3 games, but they are missing sr. guard Jaden Rodgers due to injury. It's hard to drop them too far down when not at full-strength.

  6. 6th Region after week 4 With JCPS teams getting the go ahead, we will see some movement in the rankings soon. Let's look at what's happening in the 6th Region! (season averages in parenthesis) 1. Fern Creek (Last Seasons Champion) (0-0) 2. DeSales (7-3) The Colts had a great week, going 3-0, with wins over St. X (an impressive 81-58 victory, where Devin Perry was close to a 27 point triple double), Bullitt East and Holy Cross.

  8. 6th Region after week 2 While the JCPS teams are eagerly awaiting tomorrows meeting (fingers crossed and say your Hail Mary's), some teams are two weeks in - let's look at what's happening in the 6th Region! 1. Fern Creek (Last Seasons Champion) (0-0) Season still on hold, but with the return of D. Washington back to the team, they must be considered the favorite until proven otherwise. 2. DeSales (2-3) While the Colts have a losing record - they have played a BRUTAL schedule and have proven worthy of being a contender in the region. Akron signee Sekou Kalle has averaged a double double for the Colts thru 5 games (21pts/13 r) and PG Devin Perry had a big night vs. Cal, scoring 37 in a 85-79 win. DeSales next game is Monday night vs. Bullitt Central. 3. Jeffersontown (0-0) Big news came out of the J-Town camp last week as returning PG and all-region talent Jalen Fairmen has left the school and is reported to have transferred to Jeff in IN. This would be a BIG blow to the Chargers region title hopes. However, until they play, I will keep them in this spot, as they will still be athletic and well coached. 4. PRP (0-0) PRP returns two starters from last season's team - Uber-talented So. PG Zee McCown and Sr. SG Nevin White, both of whom averaged around 10ppg. However, unlike 2020, this team has some underneath presence. Jr.’s Victor Lado and Lavonte Harris are both 6’6” and have matured drastically from last season. PRP will be a deeper team than last season and should make some noise in the Region. 5. Doss (0-0) The Dragons return the bulk of their squad back from last season, where they went 17-12 while playing a tough schedule. Their top duo of jr. Inslee Carroll (17ppg) and sr. big man Tony Moss (13p/10rpg) both return and are surrounded by speed and length. If Doss can find their outside shooting touch, they could be a very dangerous team in the region. 6. Butler (0-0) They return some solid players in sr.’s Mershon Dickerson and Taevon Dozier, but lost their top 4 scorers from last year and have a new coach in Brent Jameson. 7. Bullitt East (2-1) Bullitt East started the season off with an impressive win over CAL. They since split with Grayson Co. and the always tough John Hardin. Tucker Blanford has started the year off averaging darn near 20 pts and 10 reb a game. Their next opponent will be South Oldham on 1/20 8. Western (0-0) Western’s top 3 scorers graduated (including double/double machine Jaheim Foreman) but will be long, athletic and physical. 9. Evangel (2-4) While the Eagles await the KHSAA ruling on the eligibility of 6’11’ Cyr Malonga, who has multiple high D1 offers, they still have shown signs of life. Evangel will represent the 6th region in the all "A" tournament, defeating Holy Cross 70-59 in the semis and beating Beth haven 65-52 in the final. At the moment, they have six players averaging 5 pts. a game or higher, so they have a balanced scoring attack. They travel to Bardstown Bethlehem on 1/21 10. Southern (0-0) Sr. Camden Pfeister is a player to keep an eye on. 11. Moore (0-0) 12. Fairdale (0-0) Sr. Isaac Tedford is a player to watch. 13. Bullitt Central (1-1) BC rebounded from their season-opening loss to Anderson co with a 92-68 win over rival North Bullitt. Jr. Hunter Coleman led the way with 26, and sr. Gavin Hedges chipped in with 24. The Cougars host region foe DeSales 1/18. 14. Beth Haven (3-2) The Bears have kept their strong start going. They trounced Portland Christian 92-59, then fell to Evangel in the 6th region all "A" final 65-52. Jr. Luka Mateski continues to pace Beth Haven (24pts/11 reb) and sr. Luke Easley is averaging 17 a game. They host Bluegrass United on 1/19 15. Holy Cross (3-1) The Cougars of HC lost to Evangel in the semi of the 6th region all "A", but rebounded to defeat Walden 61-46. HC has a balanced scoring attack - with 4 players averaging between 13-16 pts. a game. They next host CKHS on 1/19 16. Iroquois (0-0) 17. Valley (0-0) 18. North Bullitt (0-2) North Bullitt has gotten off to a rough start, losing to Walden 79-74 and Bullitt Central 92-68. With the loss of their top 6 scorers from last season, the Eagles look to be in rebuild mode. 19. Whitefield Academy (0-2) The Wildcats lost their first two games by a combined score of 129-54. They have been off since then with Covid cancellations. Hopefully they can return to the court soon.
  9. Kind of crazy they already released the matchups. Would have thought they could have released the plans, then seeded in mid February after hopefully everyone got a couple of weeks of games in.
  10. 6th Region after week 1 While the JCPS teams haven't started yet (fingers crossed and say your Hail Mary's), some teams have gotten going - let's look at what's happening in the 6th Region! 1. Fern Creek (Last Seasons Champion) (0-0) Season still on hold, but with the return of D. Washington back to the team, they must be considered the favorite until proven otherwise. 2. DeSales (1-1) Akron signee Sekou Kalle has averaged a double double for the Colts in their first two games, a nail biting 73-70 loss vs. consensus state top 10 E-town, and a blow out victory over B-town Bethlehem. Transfer Devin Perry has definitely made an impact and as DeSales gets more floor time than their 6th region competition, they should stay in this spot for the long haul. 3. Jeffersontown (0-0) Big news came out of the J-Town camp last week as returning PG and all-region talent Jalen Fairmen has left the school and is reported to have transferred to Jeff in IN. This would be a BIG blow to the Chargers region title hopes. However, until they play, I will keep them in this spot, as they will still be athletic and well coached. 4. PRP (0-0) PRP returns two starters from last season's team - Uber-talented So. PG Zee McCown and Sr. SG Nevin White, both of whom averaged around 10ppg. However, unlike 2020, this team has some underneath presence. Jr.’s Victor Lado and Lavonte Harris are both 6’6” and have matured drastically from last season. PRP will be a deeper team than last season and should make some noise in the Region. 5. Doss (0-0) The Dragons return the bulk of their squad back from last season, where they went 17-12 while playing a tough schedule. Their top duo of jr. Inslee Carroll (17ppg) and sr. big man Tony Moss (13p/10rpg) both return and are surrounded by speed and length. If Doss can find their outside shooting touch, they could be a very dangerous team in the region. 6. Butler (0-0) They return some solid players in sr.’s Mershon Dickerson and Taevon Dozier, but lost their top 4 scorers from last year and have a new coach in Brent Jameson. 7. Western (0-0) Western’s top 3 scorers graduated (including double/double machine Jaheim Foreman) but will be long, athletic and physical. 8. Bullitt East (0-0) Bullitt East will have to cope with the loss of sr. PG Zak Perdue. Coach Couch will have his boys prepared however when they start their season Tuesday night @ CAL 9. Evangel (0-3) The Eagles received a lot of preseason hype, but have gotten off to a rough start on the court. Evangel had a tough opener, losing big @ O-boro Catholic, but that would be a tough opener for many squads. They also lost at Campbellsville and Simon Kenton. 6’11’ Cyr Malonga, who has multiple high D1 offers, has NOT yet been ruled eligible by the KHSAA. While by tournament time the Eagles could look a lot different, for now they slip in the rankings 10. Southern (0-0) Sr. Camden Pfeister is a player to keep an eye on. 11. Moore (0-0) 12. Fairdale (0-0) Sr. Isaac Tedford is a player to watch. 13. Holy Cross (2-0) The Cougars of HC start the season with two tight W's. They defeated KCD 68-64 and Bluegrass United 67-66. Jr. Alonzo Coleman put up a team high 21 in the KCD game and sr. Chaz Geraghty, a Morehead St football signee, had 17 and 9 boards. HC takes on Evangel in an All "A" region game on Thursday. 14. North Bullitt (0-0) North Bullitt graduated all 5 starters from last season's district championship team. They open up with the Walden school on Thursday. 15. Beth Haven (1-1) The Bears are an interesting team. Once again coached by the well respected Michael Stinnett, they lost a heartbreaker in their opener @ Thomas Nelson 72-69, and then rebounded to defeat CEC 88-52. Sr. Luke Easley has picked up where he left off last season with a 25 pt. effort vs. CEC, but transfer big Luka Mateski has made a huge impact, avg. 28 pts. and 11 reb. through their first two games. 16. Iroquois (0-0) 17. Bullitt Central (0-1) BC lost their home opener to Anderson Co 42-37. The Cougars were hit fairly hard by graduation and may be in rebuilding mode 18. Valley (0-0) 19. Whitefield Academy (0-2) The Wildcats lost their first two games by a combined score of 129-54
  11. No PRP or DeSales games? Doss will be a fun team to watch as well.
  12. If you look under North Bullitt - I lumped Butler and Bullitt East together. Both squads are losing a lot of contributions from last season - and Butler has a new coach - so we won't know much until they start playing
  13. 6th Region Preview and preseason rankings There is a lot of unknown when it comes to high school basketball this season, especially with JCPS teams, as their seasons are still on hold. While some rosters are still in flux, I will try to preview what we do know at this time about the 6th region! 1. Fern Creek (Last Seasons Champion) - Even with Zeke Montgomery's transfer to St. Louis - I would still consider Fern Creek the team to beat in the 6th region. 4 year starter Jaden Rodgers returns at PG to lead the Tigers - he led the team last season in scoring at 16.5 ppg and was their de facto floor leader. The twin towers of Darius Washington and CeArius Warren are also back - the 6’8” big men can control the paint and Warren is their returning leading rebounder. The transfer of Montgomery will open the door for other returning players to make an impact. The Tigers will rely on juniors Darian Lewis, Andru Markham, and Jaden Schooler to pick up the slack. 2. DeSales - Akron signee Sekou Kalle will lead a talented DeSales team this season. The 6’9” C averaged a double double for the Colts last season (16p/11r). However, it’s far from a one-man show. Soph. F Keith Robinson returns (13p/6r) and with the addition of transfer PG Devin Perry, back from Fl for his senior season, DeSales could be the favorite to win the region depending on how well Perry gels with the team AND how big a head start DeSales gets over their JCPS competition. 3. Jeffersontown - Another team with some roster changes. While the Chargers leading scorer from last year (B. Rayzer-Moore) transferred to New Albany - JTown picked up a huge asset in jr. Turrell Cleaves, who comes from Butler, Turrell joins PG Jalen Fairmen, a dark horse 6th region POY candidate, to make one of the most dynamic backcourts in the Lou. area. This Jtown team is athletic, long and will play uptempo. IF they can find some playmakers in the paint - look for the Chargers to make some noise in the region! 4. PRP - PRP returns two starters from last season's team - Uber-talented So. PG Zee McCown and Sr. SG Nevin White, both of whom averaged around 10ppg. However, unlike 2020, this team has some underneath presence. Jr.’s Victor Lado and Lavonte Harris are both 6’6” and have matured drastically from last season. 6' 4" Sr. Brian Gatewood has multiple D3/NAIA offers and will most likely be the 5th starter. PRP will be a deeper team than last season and should make some noise in the Region. 5. Doss - The Dragons return the bulk of their squad back from last season, where they went 17-12 while playing a tough schedule. Their top duo of jr. Inslee Carroll (17ppg) and sr. big man Tony Moss (13p/10rpg) both return and are surrounded by speed and length. If Doss can find their outside shooting touch, they could be a very dangerous team in the region. 6. Evangel - One of the true unknowns are the Eagles of Evangel. According to multiple social media outlets, they have brought in numerous transfers. 6’11’ Cyr Malonga, who has multiple high D1 offers, headlines the group, but fr. Johnny Djema and 8th grader Ben Tshaka are also big men with a high upside. IF things pan out for the Eagles, they could skyrocket up these rankings 7. Butler 8. Western 9. Bullitt East 10. North Bullitt These 4 teams are coming off of successful seasons, but lost a lot to graduation and/or transfers. Butler in particular will be interesting to follow. They return some solid players in sr.’s Mershon Dickerson and Taevon Dozier, but lost their top 4 scorers from last year and have a new coach in Brent Jameson. Bullitt East will have to cope with the loss of sr. PG Zak Perdue and North Bullitt graduated all 5 starters from last season's district championship team. Western’s top 3 scorers graduated (including double/double machine Jaheim Foreman) but will be long, athletic and physical. 11. Southern - Sr. Camden Pfeister is a player to keep an eye on. 12. Moore 13. Fairdale - Sr. Isaac Tedford is a player to watch. 14. Iroquois 15. Bullitt Central 16. Holy Cross 17. Beth Haven - Sr. Luke Easley (22ppg) returns with some new transfer players - a team to keep an eye on once we start playing. 18. Valley 19. Whitefield Academy
