The season continues on as the games are going fast and furious. Most teams are playing 2-3 games per week from now until the time district tournaments start and schools are starting to distinguish themselves as the cream of the crop while others are falling down the standings.
Stock Up: Campbell County – The Camels are 14-2 and look to be the best team in the 10th region at this point in the year. They’re a perfect 7-0 against 10th region foes and still have opportunities to get marquee wins as the season rolls along. Tanner Clos, Joel Day and Reid Jolly are all averaging over 15 points per game on the season for the Camels.
Stock Down: Adair County – This one isn’t for anything on the court. The fact that they ducked playing Bowling Green at Mustang Madness in Paducah due to “inclement weather” is laughable. It was 40 degrees and sunny. The fact that they backed out when Bowling Green had already been on the bus for an hour is even worse.
Stock Up: Glasgow – The Scotties have an impressive 12-3 record and are 7-2 in the region. They’re also winning with a pretty young team. Guards Nick Sorrell and Kobe Brents consistently lead the team in scoring and rebounding. They’re probably a year away from seriously competing for the region but they are a threat to win a game or two this season.
Stock Down: The 5th Region – Only seven teams in the entire region have winning record at this point. Adair County has been very underwhelming after being so good a season ago. John Hardin just lost by 7 to Mayfield in Paducah. 3 time defending champions Taylor County being 2-10 is a major disappointment. As a whole, the region has had a disappointing year to this point but there is still time to turn it around.
Stock Up: Mayfield – The Cardinals went 3-0 on the week with 2 massive wins on the weekend. The Friday night win over Graves County in overtime was huge for momentum in the always tight 1st region. The Sunday win over John Hardin showed that this team is capable of upsetting a potential State tournament team. They should be favored to win the First Region All “A” this week too.
Stock Down: Christian County – Losers of 4 out of their last 6, these Colonels were struggling before a 40 point win over district foe and perennial doormat Fort Campbell. They have a brutal 3 game stretch coming up as they take on University Heights, John Hardin and Bowling Green in a 7 day span. If they can get through that stretch at 2-1 or better, they are going to be positioned to be the favorites in the second region once again.
