13th Region Prep Hoops Power Poll

(Continued)

CORBIN — The Best of the rest

No. 6 Harlan County (7-9, 3-2)

What’s the scoop: The Black Bears have a losing record, but are 3-2 against 13th Region foes, including Tuesday's 10-point win over Harlan.

No. 7 North Laurel (9-7, 3-2)

What’s the scoop: The Jaguars had won two in a row before Tuesday's loss to Somerset on the road.

No. 8 South Laurel (7-9, 2-3)

What’s the scoop: Consecutive wins over Tates Creek and Williamsburg have the Cardinals just two games under .500 on the season. Watch out as the season progresses as the Cardinals continue to improve.

No. 9 Harlan (9-3, 5-3)

What’s the scoop: The Green Dragons had their seven-game in streak snapped by Harlan County Tuesday, but a 5-3 mark against regional foes will keep Harlan in the top 10 for now.

No. 10 Barbourville (11-5, 3-2)

What’s the scoop: Dinky Phipps has his team tied for the best record in the 13th Region, but the fact remains the Tigers are 3-2 against regional competition. The Tigers will face OBI Friday before hosting the 13th Region All 'A' Classic starting Monday.

Girls Top Five

1. Bell Co. (11-3 overall, 6-0 vs. 13th Region foes)

What’s the scoop: It's back to the top spot for the Bell County Lady Cats Since the start of 2014, Lewis Morris' squad is 3-0. In addition to bringing home the championship of the WYMT Mountain Classic, Bell County remains unbeaten against 13th Region foes.

Surprise, surprise: Once again, there's no real surprise here because we predicted that the top spot would shift several times this season between Whitley County, Bell County and Corbin.

What’s ahead: The Lady Cats will host South Laurel Saturday and Middlesboro Tuesday.

2. Whitley County (13-4, 5-1)

What’s the scoop: Whitley County drops back to the second spot after an overtime loss to Lincoln County earlier this week. The loss doesn't hurt too bad because Lincoln County is a quality 12th Region team.  

Surprise, surprise: The fact remains that the Lady Colonels are 5-1 against 13th Region foes with their lone loss coming against top-ranked Bell County in the second game of the season.

What’s ahead: The Lady Colonels will host Corbin Friday and Lynn Camp Tuesday.

3. Harlan County (12-4, 4-1)

What’s the scoop: After dropping three straight games, the Lady Black Bears recovered to knock off Leslie County, improving to 12-4 on the season.

Surprise, surprise: After winning eight straight to open the season, Harlan County has been up and down. Look for Anthony Nolan to shore things up as the season progresses and the games become more important.

What’s ahead: The next six games may be just what the doctor ordered as Harlan County will be at home for each of them.

4. Clay County (7-7, 4-3)

What’s the scoop: Clay County has won three of the last four games, including a last-second win over defending 13th Region Champion Corbin. If James Burchell gets this team headed in the right direction, opponents will have to watch out.

Surprise, surprise: The Lady Tigers turned the tables on the Lady Redhounds last week, knocking them off with a last-second shot, just like Corbin had done to Clay County last season.

What’s ahead: The Lady Tigers will travel to Madison Central before playing in one of the state's best tournaments, the Toyota Classic, at Scott County .

5. Corbin (14-4, 7-3)

What’s the scoop: While they may have the second best record in the 13th Region, last week's loss to Clay County drops the Lady Redhounds to fifth in this week's rankings.

Surprise, surprise: Corbin showed no signs of slowing down after the loss to Clay County, knocking off Williamsburg, South Laurel and North Laurel over the course of the last week.

What’s ahead: The Lady Redhounds will travel to Whitley County Friday to try and improve to 4-1 in district play.

The Best of the rest

No. 6 Harlan (11-6, 7-3)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Dragons have won three of the last four games, including a 69-28 victory over Jackson County in the opening round of the 13th Region All 'A' Classic Tuesday.

No. 7 Lynn Camp (14-1, 9-0)

What’s the scoop: The Lady Wildcats continue to make history as they're off to one of the best starts in school history. In addition to being 9-0 against regional foes, Lynn Camp locked up the program's first-ever top seed (boys or girls) for the district tournament.

No. 8 South Laurel (4-10, 2-8)

What’s the scoop: After starting the season 0-8, the Lady Cardinals have won four of the last six games.

No. 9 Pineville (8-7, 4-5)

What’s the scoop: Pineville cruised past Williamsburg in the opening round of the 13th Region All 'A' Classic Monday, setting up a showdown against Lynn Camp today.

No. 10 Middlesboro (5-8, 3-3)

What’s the scoop: While Lady Yellow Jackets are 5-8, they're a win away from playing for a 13th Region All 'A' Championship.
