There are only 3 weeks left in the regular season for Kentucky high school basketball and it’s going quickly. This week features a ton of games that are being made up from the week of the snow and ice that shut down Kentucky basketball for a week. Some schools are playing 3 or 4 games this week. Hopefully the quality of basketball doesn’t fall off because of the fatigue some kids will experience by the time the week winds down.
