Chris Parsons' Daily Region Pick 'Em

CORBIN — After the first two days of the girls 13th Region Tournament I find myself at 2-2 when it comes to picking the winners. As my cohort Les Dixon said in his picks on the previous pages, the bad news is things are about to get a lot harder when it comes to the boys side of things.

13th Region Tournament

Boys First Round  

Clay County 84, Middlesboro 69  

This is one of those games that could really go either way. At times this season Middlesboro has looked like the whipping boy of the 13th Region, but at other times they have looked the part of a Cinderella team that could march all the way to Rupp Arena. The only problem for the Yellow Jackets at this point is the fact that the most successful program in 13th Region history is standing in front of them in the Clay County Tigers. I look for Middlesboro to make a game of it early, but experience and talent will rise to the top when all is said and done as Clay County pulls away.

13th Region Tournament

Boys First Round

Williamsburg 61, Knox Central 60

If you know me and have talked to me this basketball season, you know I have stressed my opinion of the Williamsburg Yellow Jackets with and without Skyler Griffith. After missing all but the past two or three weeks of the season, Griffith has made his presence felt on the floor since returning. Knox Central has been the team to beat for a large part of the season, but they have a history of slipping up in big game situations. The good news for Panthers' fans is that they are healthy and are at full strength. The bad news is so are the Yellow Jackets. If Williamsburg is in this game late, and I expect them to be, it will be the upset of the tournament.

  • Shelton was a hero by any definition

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
