Louisville Trinity, ranked near the top in Kentucky as a contender to win the state tournament, traveled down the road to Richmond to take on the Madison Central Indians. The match-up between the 7th and 11th regions did not disappoint. Prep Hoops Kentucky gives you it’s five takeaways from the game.
1.) When Clicking, Madison Central Can Beat Anyone – Granted, at any level, it’s hard to win on the road. But Trinity came into this game without a loss and now sits at 19-1 through 20 games (still pretty darn good). But much is to be said about this Madison Central team. I’ve seen them play a handful of times, and when they are the best version of themselves they are extremely hard to beat. I asked the question in December, “could Madison Central be a dark horse state tournament contender?”. Time will tell, but this is a great win, even if it was at home.
2.) Madison Central Junior Big Man Isaiah Cozart is the Stud – But senior point guard Isaiah Minter and senior forward Dustin Geralds is part of that “best version of themselves” equation I was talking about above. In this game, Geralds scored 17 points and grabbed his usual bushel of rebounds. Minter scored 12 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and was a glove on defense.
3.) Trinity’s Junior Guard Stud David Johnson Brought It – Johnson had 17 points and 6 rebounds, but was only able to dish out a couple of assists.
4.) Trinity’s Senior Wing Jayden Scrubb – Got his season average, scoring 19 points tonight. He and Johnson were the only players from Trinity to score in double-figures. Scrubb is still an available prospect for at the D1 level.
5.) This Game Was What A Kentucky High School Basketball Environment Should Be – on a Friday night in what many consider to be a “basketball state”. The crowd, especially student section, was fantastic – and that’s been lacking around this area during some really good basketball games.
