After a few weeks away from the 3 up, 3 down column, we’re bringing it back in time for the last few weeks of the season.
Stock Up: George Rogers Clark – Coach Josh Cook’s team has run off 15 straight wins and have yet to lose a game in 2018. Their depth has been helped by Jared Wellman’s recent rise up the depth chart. The Cardinals are peaking at the right time, sit at 25-3 and will have a good game at Henry Clay this week that should be one last good test before they head into postseason play.
Stock Down: Montgomery County – The rival school of GRC, Montgomery is on a downward slide this season. Heading into the last week of the season, they are 12-14 overall and only 2-4 in the district. It seems like it hasn’t been that long since Omar Prewitt and company were making a run at Rupp Arena. The talent in the region seems to be concentrated in Clark and Campbell Counties these days. It will be interesting to see how long Montgomery stays down. They return all but 4 players next season.
Stock Up: Henry Clay Sophomore Marques Warrick – Perhaps the hottest name in Kentucky recruiting the last few weeks has been the 202o guard from Lexington. Warrick has consistently scored in the mid and upper 20s for the last two weeks. Ques has been lighting it up for the Blue Devils since the calendar turned to 2018 and colleges are starting to notice. Warrick went to EKU on a visit two weeks ago and Northern Kentucky recently started asking about him. With a good AAU season, Marques Warrick could start bringing more coaches to the Henry Clay gym.
Stock Down: Greenup County – Some predicted Greenup could be a sleeper team to win the 16th region this season behind high scoring Gage Hughes. Since the start of 2018, Greenup is 1-8 and losing by double digits consistently. At this point, they are on the bottom of the region and likely headed to a disappointing finish to a season that started with high hopes.
Stock Up: Scott County – The Cardinals still haven’t lost to a Kentucky team all season and have been absolutely killing teams. They’ve only played a handful of single digit games all season and look unstoppable at times. At this point, anything less than a state championship is likely considered a disappointing end for this particular group of Cardinals.
Stock Down: Pleasure Ridge Park – At the start of the season, PRP was expected to contend for the 6th region title. Now they are sitting with 10 losses and a brutally tough matchup against Valley in the district tournament next week. The Panthers are 6-7 since the new year started. Senior Tre Hill just returned from injury this week. Perhaps he can propel Coach Mabrey’s squad past Valley and into the 6th region tournament.
