Posted On: 12/10/17 11:15 PM

We’re now 2 full weeks into the 2017-18 season. There have been some surprising results. Surprising for both positive and negative reasons. Here’s a quick look at some results that have stood out and .

Stock Up: Bryan Station. Bryan Station is 5-0 with 4 double digit wins. The Defenders figured to be a middle of the pack team in the 11th region this season but so far they have been dominating all opponents. They are getting balanced scoring from Eric Boone, Terrance Clayton-Murphy and Jalen Burbage.

Stock Down: Dunbar. Dunbar is 0-4 with 3 double digit losses. We knew that life after Taveion Hollingsworth would be hard but didn’t expect it to be this bad, this quickly. Looking at their schedule, Dunbar may struggle to hit double digit wins this season if their play doesn’t improve.

Stock Up: Woodford County. One of Dunbar’s losses was the season opener to Woodford. The Yellow Jackets are 5-0 and have 3 players averaging double figures and another averaging 9 per game. They will get a good test when they face George Rogers Clark on Tuesday. Speaking of…

Stock Down: George Rogers Clark. The Cardinals have dropped 2 of their last 3 games after losing at Madison Central and at home to Campbell County. They will have 2 tough games this week as they travel to Woodford County and host Paris in a 10th region showdown.

Stock Up: Shelby Valley. The Wildcats are off to a 5-0 start this season, including 4-0 against regional foes. 2020 G Cody Potter is off to a strong start. The sophomore is averaging 20 points per game and hitting 44% of his 3s early in the year.

Stock Down: Bullitt East. After a decade of being at or near the top of the 6th region, the Chargers appear on their way to sliding back into the middle of the pack. They’ve dropped 3 of their 4 losses by double digits and were beaten by Kentucky Country Day on Saturday night. For a program that has cranked out college players consistently since for years, it looks like the talent well is starting to dry up.
