Over the next 2 months, we'll preview the top teams and players in each of the 16 regions as we move toward the 2019-2020 regular season. As part of our preview, we'll break down the regional title contenders and the top college prospects in every region. We continue with the sixth region, where Butler looks to hold off a loaded Fern Creek team and get back to Rupp Arena.

Top Five Regional Title Contenders:

Fern Creek - Loaded with talent, this Creek team's lone weakness appears to be a lack of depth. Most of their reserves transferred this summer due to playing time concerns. Their starting 5 features 3 Juniors with D1 offers and another Junior with D1 potential (assuming Cearius Warren gets eligible). Expectations are high for the Tigers this season.

Butler - Butler isn't going to match the star power of Fern Creek but they have really quality depth and play very hard. They lack a great post defender but they won't need one very often. With Cam Underwood and Tre Minter leading the team and a very solid Sophomore class anxious to contribute, the Bears should be peaking when the postseason gets here.

PRP - The Panthers
