The season tips on Monday and I'm sure if you're reading this article, you're as excited for the season to start as I am. Here are 8 predictions for the season ahead.

  1. The demise of Scott County will not be as dramatic as many think/hope. I spent most of the summer expecting the Cardinals to be terrible. They lost some games this summer that they had no business losing and then 3 kids who started all summer for them went to Great Crossing when school started. Now Coach Tim Glenn has a bunch of kids who want to play for him and a team that can run the same system Coach Hicks ran for years. They're not likely to get to Rupp this year, but that outcome is not as far fetched as it used to seem.
  2. The Class of 2022 is going to make an impact. I have made little secret of how high I am on the Sophomore class as a whole but I expect that several of those players had minor roles on the varsity roster last season. Look for that to change now. Christian Spalding and James Jewell (Eastern) Turrell Cleaves Jr. (Butler) Bryce Riley (Nelson County), Jack Gohmann (Lexington
