  1. Well, things just continue to evolve in this young basketball season. Pendleton is a pretty good team. Robertson is probably better than they looked last night. That loss might lull some future opponents into a false sense of over-confidence. Mason gets a W. Bracken probably in the same boat as Robertson. See thoughts above. Montgomery gets a W over Bourbon. Brossart quietly chocking up some Ws. Paris struggling early. Rank: (spaces indicate my perceived gap) Campbell GRC Scott Pendleton Robertson the rest of the pack...who will emerge? Your thoughts?
  2. The newest home gymnasium in the 10th Region, Robertson County High School, serves as the site for this year's Class "A" Tournament. This annual January get-together has long been dominated by Bishop Brossart, winners of the last 5 tournaments and 11 of the last 12. Mike Code's Mustangs do not seem to be as invincible as they've been in previous years, but the team possesses the firepower to claim the hardware again. Paris and second-year head coach Terence Brooks enter as the tournament's highest-rated team, having garnered impressive wins this year against Lexington Christian and Montgomery County. Jason Hinson's Augusta squad owns the most wins of any participant, and the Panthers are familiar with winning tournaments, being the two-time defending 39th District champs. There's much more parity than in previous years, but we look for one of those 3 clubs to be cutting down the nets on January 17th. Note: The Girls 10th Region Class A is being held at the same venue & brackets are the same for it. On each date you see below, there are girls games preceding boys games. The Pairings Friday January 9, 2015 (Play-In Game) Nicholas County vs. Bishop Brossart - 8:00 pm Saturday January 10, 2015 (Quarterfinals) Calvary Christian vs. Robertson County - 12:00 pm (Upper-Bracket) Bracken County vs. Paris - 4:00 pm (Lower-Bracket) St. Patrick vs. Augusta - 8:00 pm (Lower-Bracket) Monday January 12, 2015 (Quarterfinals) Silver Grove vs. Nicholas County/Bishop Brossart winner - 8:00 pm (Upper-Bracket) Wednesday January 14, 2015 (Semi-Finals) Upper-Bracket Semi-Finals - 8:00 pm Thursday January 15, 2015 (Semi-Finals) Lower-Bracket Semi-Finals - 8:00 pm Saturday January 17, 2015 (Championship) Championship Game - 8:00 pm The Top 10 Players 1. Austin Crawford - 6'3" Soph. (Bracken County): Splendid scorer and athlete is one of the 10th's finest guards. 2. Koebe Garrard - 6'3" Jr. (Paris): Physically imposing forward is a workhorse for the Hounds. 3. Camryn Snapp - 6'3" Jr. (Augusta): Extremely versatile forward wears a lot of hats for A-Town. 4. Andrew Sticklen - 6'5" Sr. (St. Patrick): Saints' go-to-guy leads the 10th in rebounding. 5. Jekobi Wells - 6'2" Soph. (Paris): Young swingman has a very high ceiling. 6. Connor Maddox - 5'11" Jr. (Augusta): Panthers' leading scorer is more than just a shooter this year. 7. Jonathan Zink - 6'1" Sr. (Bishop Brossart): Mustangs forward has been consistently productive all season. 8. Dawson Cooper - 6'2" Sr. (Robertson County): Black Devils' leader had a solid tournament in 2013-14. 9. Spencer Hackworth - 6'1" Sr. (Bishop Brossart): Brossart's leading scorer is deadly from the perimeter. 10. Devin Trussell - 6'0 Sr. (Nicholas County): Didn't play last year, but has made up for lost time this year. Upset Alerts While Bishop Brossart drew the short straw in getting the Play-In game, the Stangs seem destined to be playing in the title game. Nicholas County is Brossart's play-In game opponent. Roger Newton's roster is deep, but Nicholas comes into the tournament having lost its last 2 games. Unseating the 5-time defending champs on Friday night could require a Herculean effort on the part of the Bluejackets. Beyond the Play-In game, it's hard to imagine a scenario where Silver Grove, Calvary Christian, or Robertson County stops Code and company. The lower bracket appears to be the more intriguing half. Paris will meet Bracken County in a rematch of last year's quarterfinals, won by the Greyhounds, and this contest will feature the tournament's top two individual players. An upset is not out of the question, but Terence Brooks' bunch should advance. The Greyhounds' chances could very well hinge on the status of Jakobi Wells, who missed Tuesday's matchup with George Rogers Clark. Augusta will be favored in its quarterfinal matchup with St. Patrick. The Panthers have beaten the Saints twice already this year: by 2 points in Maysville on December 5th and by 19 points in Augusta nearly a month later. In short, the biggest upset would be a semifinal round without the Mustangs, Greyhounds, and Panthers. Our Predictions January 9th Bishop Brossart defeats Nicholas County January 10th Robertson County defeats Calvary Christian Paris defeats Bracken County Augusta defeats St. Patrick January 12th Bishop Brossart defeats Silver Grove January 14th Bishop Brossart defeats Robertson County January 15th Paris defeats Augusta January 17th Paris defeats Bishop Brossart
  3. 10th Region Player Profile: Brent Bach- 6'1" Sr. (Augusta) There are two photographs, taken almost exactly one year apart, that best tell the Brent Bach story up to this point in his high school basketball career. The first one was taken on February 23, 2012 and shows a distraught Bach lying face down on the gym floor of "The Igloo"--the home of the Bracken County Polar Bears. The picture captures Bach's obvious disappointment after scoring 27 points, but missing a putback basket at the buzzer that would have given his Augusta Panthers an improbable 39th District championship win over Mason County (see the photo here). Though we see the young Bach in a moment of defeat, we were at that moment introduced to a player who was on the cusp of something special. The second photo, taken on February 19th, 2013, shows Bach wearing the same road black #15 Augusta uniform, only this time the 6'1" guard is shown dribbling with his left hand while holding his right index finger high in the air--a gesture of triumph. It's a fitting pose for the smooth Bach, whose 31 points and 12-12 free throw shooting, had just helped lead his Panthers to a coveted first-round victory over Mason County in the 39th District Tournament (see the photo here). And it is with this photo that we see the fulfillment of that "something special" we knew was coming from photo #1. Time will tell what photos await Bach's future, but as the Augusta star prepares for his senior season, he hopes they more resemble the second as opposed to the first. When asked about his goals for the 2013-14 season Bach answered, "We want to win the District, Class 'A', and Regional tournaments." Lofty ambitions, but the standout guard has proven himself more than capable of helping his team achieve them. Bach's 26.5 ppg placed him among the state's top scoring leaders last year and his unlimited shooting range is well-noted. But there's more to his game than splendid scoring ability. Opposing coaches are well-aware of Bach's athleticism, court-awareness, and ability to make those around him better. His own coach also knows he has something special on his hands. "Brent has been such a good teammate to the younger guys we have. He is a great player and works 24/7 on his game," Augusta head coach Jason Hinson stated. High school coaches aren't the only ones aware of the big-time talent in this tiny, Ohio River town. Bach has been courted by several college teams at various levels. Most recently, Augusta's star has visited Charleston (WV) and Coastal Carolina. He plans to stop by Shawnee State, Bellarmine, Xavier, Cincinnati, and Pikeville. There are other schools that have shown interest and Bach says he hopes to narrow his options in the very near future. "I plan on picking my top five in the middle of the season, or maybe sooner," he told us. For now, Bach is focused on the season ahead and he is well aware that most prognosticators have him tagged as the 10th Region's top overall talent. "It means I'll have a target on my back, but as long as I have my team and fans on my side, I feel like I'll do just fine," Bach said. When asked about players he'll share the limelight with throughout the Region, Bach first mentions Montgomery County's Bryan Wallace--a teammate of his over the summer. He goes on to say, "Corey Holbrook, Shawn Johnson, Alex Trentman, and Darius Jones are all great players. It will be fun to play against all those guys this year." Bach also heaps praise upon the town and fan base that have been beyond supportive. "The fans are great down here in Augusta," Bach says, "and they were a big reason for our successful season last year. I'm very thankful to be a part of a great coaching staff, great school, and great town. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else than Augusta." They wouldn't want him anywhere else either.
  4. 2017 10TH REGION TOURNAMENT PREVIEW The 2017 10th Region Girls Basketball Tournament kicks off tonight at Harrison County High School. There wasn't an official preview coming out so I thought I would write something up. Admission for the games will be $7 on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. The Championship game on Saturday will be $5. The officials will be from the 6th and 7th region. Now let's get to the preview. I had some help on this and the rankings can be debated. The winner will play at BB&T Arena (NKU) vs. the winner of the 13th Region on Wednesday, March 8th at 8:00PM. Quarter-Finals Nicholas County vs. Bracken County Monday, February 27th at 6:00PM This will be the third match-up on the season between these two teams. The first met in Brooksville on December 1st, Nicholas County forced 27 turnovers and came out on top with a 57-45 victory. They met for second time in the All 'A' Classic with a much improved Lady Bluejacket team coming out on top 59-33. Bracken County is led by senior Madison Kalb, who is averaging 12.4 points a game and 7.4 rebounds a game. Nicholas County has a balanced scoring attack with Grace Kiskaden and Autumn Martin averaging 10.9 and 10.7 a game respectively. George Rogers Clark vs. Scott Monday, February 27th 7:30PM These two heavyweights will meet for the second time this season for the best game in the first round, and maybe the tournament. The Lady Eagles win the first game 56-51 in Taylor Mill. Robbie Graham's Lady Cardinals have balanced scoring attack with Behanan, Flowers, Harrison, and leading score Igo all averaging double-digit scoring figures. Scott is led by prolific score Anna Clephane who is averaging 22.7 points and 7.2 rebounds. Followed by Alexis Stapleton with 14.7, and Summer Secrist with 11.2. Harrison County vs. Mason County Tuesday, February 28th at 6:00PM This is the first time the two have met this season. Harrison County is led in scoring and rebounds by Madison Kellione averaging 18.7 and 7.4 a game. Brad Cox's Lady Royals should be favored in this one with six players averaging over 5 points a game. They are led by 10th Region Player of the Year Whitney O'Mara with 13.7 points per game. Followed by McNutt with 11.7. Along with their balanced scoring, they also have a balanced game on the glass. Campbell County vs. Bourbon County Tuesday, February 28th at 7:30PM This the first time these two have met this season and Lady Camels should be heavily favored. Campbell County is led Taylor Clos averaging 20.7 PPG along with 4.6 RPG. Second in charge is Mackenzie Schwarber with 13.4 PPG and 8.0 RPG. Bourbon County is lead by well-rounded Chariss Wilson with 16.9 PPG and 9.3 RPG who will be tough to stop inside.

  5. GoldRandyPa brings you, BGP Nation, its every-other-week 10th Region Top 5 Performers list. The rankings below reflect Weeks 1 & 2 of the basketball season. Enjoy the list & tell us where we're right or wrong. :thumb: #1- Brent Bach (Augusta)- Junior guard with a memorable 72 hours, scoring 45 points (18-18 FT's) in a shootout with Mason Monroe on Dec. 6th in Falmouth. Two days later, Bach lit up Bourbon County on their home floor for a whopping 41 points. In four games, Bach is averaging a sizzling 28.7 ppg. #2- Nick Jackson (Scott)- Scott's go-to-guy came through in two big games against quality 10th Region competition. The senior forward led the Eagles with 33 points & 13 rebounds in a 4-point victory at Harrison County on Dec. 4th. The following Friday, Jackson netted 18 points & grabbed 7 boards in a home win over Mason County. During this first two-week stretch of the season, Jackson averaged 19.2 ppg. in helping Scott earn a 4-2 record. #3- Mason Monroe (Pendleton County)- Longtime standout guard has indeed stood out to start his senior campaign. Monroe has compiled a 24.8 ppg. scoring average over five games, including an eye-popping 39 points (16-23 FG's) in the aforementioned duel with Brent Bach. #4- Omar Prewitt (Montgomery County)- Mr. Basketball candidate started the season in style with a stat-sheet-stuffing performance of 27 points, 12 rebounds, 9 blocks, 7 steals & 5 assists in a win over Menifee County. In the Indians only loss of the season to #4 ranked Madison Central, Prewitt did his part, finishing with 25 points & 10 boards. #5- Shawn Johnson (Mason County)- Three games, three double-doubles for the Mason County big man. Johnson recorded 16 points & 10 rebounds vs. Paris, 12 points & 12 rebounds vs. Bourbon County, & in the Royals first loss of the season, the 6'6" senior scored 14 points & pulled down 15 boards.
  6. 10th Region Player Profile: Shawn Johnson- 6'7" Sr. (Mason County) Mason County's Shawn Johnson is one of those players that you watch during the course of a 32-minute game and there's really nothing that stands out--nothing that screams, "This guy is one of the best players around." Then you take a look at the stat sheet after the game and you notice Johnson's final tallies: 21 points and 17 rebounds, going 9-11 from the floor and 3-4 from the free throw line. And you say to yourself, "I didn't realize he played that well." But that's what you get from Johnson--not much in terms of the dazzling, highlight-reel kind of individual plays--just a steady, consistent, productive performance. What most employers look for in their employees...that's what Shawn Johnson gives on a game-by-game basis. And by the way, those stats were his numbers in the Royals' final game of last year--a District Tournament loss to Augusta. And perhaps that loss is why the 6'7" Johnson seems to so often be overshadowed during discussion of the 10th Region's top players. People seem to focus solely on that loss and fail to recognize a young man who put up a double-double average of 14.5 ppg and 10 rpg in 27 games played during 2012-13, while shooting a ridiculous 59.4% from the field. Reflecting back on last year, the quiet senior says, "We had a good team that I thought would go far in the post season, but things didn't go as planned." Looking ahead to 2013-14 Johnson says, "Returning players haven't forgot what happened last year and we are currently working hard to improve each and every day so things like that won't happen again." You can expect the Royals' big man to do his part, and Johnson himself notes areas where he hopes to improve. He cites communication and leadership as two qualities he's looking to enhance this season, but also has a desire to improve his ball-handling and perimeter skills. But ultimately, Johnson says his personal goals are also the team's goals. "We want to make it to Rupp and contend for a title. The only way to do that is to work harder every day, improving and getting better." Notice the phrases Johnson keeps using: "work harder" and "every day." His numbers prove that this isn't just lip service. The Mason County standout doesn't just talk the talk; he walks the walk. Not surprisingly, such an approach and attitude have led to numerous college coaches reaching out to Johnson. He told BGP, "I've been contacted by about 12-15 schools wanting information but I'm still waiting and thinking so no decision has been made yet. I plan on deciding on a school around the first of the year." Until then we know what we can expect from the Royals' main man: an old-school type of performer who gets the job done every time he steps on the floor.
  7. 1. Beechwood looks like the real deal, beating Scott and Brossart. 2. I am surprised; I thought the D1 transfer to Silver Grove would move the needle more. 3. Mason still trying to figure it out. Nice W for Bourbon. 4. Campbell back on track. 5. GRC good win over Madison Central. 6. Paris over MoCo...again. 7. Pendleton +35 W in a district game. 8. Robertson continues to look like the real deal. What balance! 9. Scott handles Harrison.
  8. 10th Region Player Profile: Bryan Wallace- 6'0" Sr. (Montgomery County) Bryan Wallace came to Montgomery County last year from Shelby County and did not disappoint. As a junior the 6'0 guard was the Indians #2 scorer, behind the amazing Omar Prewitt, and seemed to have a knack for stepping up when the spotlight shined its brightest. In a 10th Region Tournament semifinal contest with Bishop Brossart, Wallace scored 21 points in helping his team to a convincing 16-point victory. When Montgomery arrived at Rupp Arena for just the second time in school history, Wallace averaged 17 points in the team's three games, which was good enough to earn himself a spot on the Sweet 16 All-Tournament Team. The talented Wallace enters this season hoping for a repeat of last season. "Except," Wallace says, "we want to be playing on Sunday this year. Anything else will be a letdown." The reference is to the Sweet 16 title game and Wallace will be the catalyst in leading Montgomery's quest for a return visit to Lexington in March. To say that Wallace should increase his production from last year might seem unfair, considering he averaged 16.1 ppg, while shooting 57.3% from the floor, 40.2% from beyond the arc, and 78.1% from the free throw line. But then you hear what his new coach Jason Holland has to say and your jaw hits the floor. "Bryan is the best guard I have had a chance to coach, he can score off the dribble, and his shooting has improved. His vertical and work habits have gotten a lot better too. His defense away from the ball is his greatest strength in my opinion. For me he is such a good person and a great teammate," Holland said. Pretty high praise from a coach who has had his fair share of talent over the years. As an individual, Wallace most definitely has college aspirations and wants to get a degree, though the specifics on how that will play out aren't quite clear at this point. He is presently focused on improving as an individual and helping the Indians continue the 10th Region domination they clearly established a season ago. When asked to assess his own game Wallace says a strength is "being able to score in many different ways," but he also takes a tremendous amount of pride on the defensive side of the ball--a trait not always common among high-scoring guards. One might find it quite remarkable that a program like Montgomery County could lose so much--Omar Prewitt, Tyler Jones, coach Happy Osborne--but then you look at a player of Wallace's caliber and you understand why there remains so much excitement and optimism in Mt. Sterling. An accomplished scorer and above-average defender, Wallace possesses the tools necessary to help MoCo continue its string of success.
  9. 10th Region Player Profile: Alex Trentman- 6'7" Sr. (Bishop Brossart) Do yourself a favor sometime and take a stroll over to YouTube. In the search box type in "Alex Trentman dunk" and then enjoy. What you'll find are a handful of highlight videos, and to be honest you may not find the majority of them Sportscenter Top 10 worthy, but that really isn't the point of this exercise. What you'll see in the clips is visual confirmation as to why the Bishop Brossart big man is one of the 10th Region's elite individual performers. You'll the the Trentman follow-up rebound dunk. You'll see the Trentman drives the baseline dunk. You'll see the Trentman gets a steal and takes it the length of the floor dunk. You'll see the Trentman beating the defense down the floor and receiving a pass from his point guard dunk. You'll see a young man who will get the best of you in a myriad of ways. Rebounding? Check. Defense? Check. Hustle? Check. Versatility? Check. You get all of these things, and then some, when you're dealing with the long and lean 6'7" senior. For the Mustangs in 2012-13 Trentman spent most of his time playing Robin to Justin Saunders' Batman. It was a role in which he excelled, averaging 12.8 ppg, 7.1 rpg, & 1.1 bpg, while shooting 54.5% from the floor. But with his senior season right around the corner, look for the bouncy big man to be more of a Caped Crusader type. While he does share the 10th's top front court with bruising 6'7" classmate Drew Burns, Trentman will most assuredly be Brossart's go-to-guy in 2013-14. If his play on the AAU summer circuit is any indication, Trentman is poised for a breakout year, where he will likely join Brossart's illustrious 1,000 points club (386 points shy). Trentman gave an interesting answer when asked which NBA player he most models his game after. "Dwayne Wade," he told BGP. "I have always been a fan of him since Miami won the NBA Finals in 2006. His ability to block shots always amazed me with his height." Individually, he doesn't speak much of what has already been accomplished, but more so about areas where he hopes to improve. "I would like to become more assertive and improve my defense for the upcoming season," Trentman says. The athletic power forward has drawn the interest of several colleges. NCAA Division II school Christian Brothers (Tennessee) has been the only program thus far to offer an official full ride, but several others keep in regular contact. "I have taken official visits to Seton Hill University and Christian Brothers, and I hope to visit Shorter University in the near future," Trentman says, although the honors student doesn't have a timetable for when he'll make his college choice. Rest assured that whichever school secures his services will be more than pleased. As for his team, Trentman labels last season a success, as the 'Stangs finished 26-6, won the 10th Region Class "A" Tournament and the always competitive 37th District. But the senior forward wants his team to reach greater heights this year. He does hope for continued success in the Class "A" and 37th District, but he goes on to say, "I want our season to end at Rupp Arena. That's our ultimate goal."
