Watch out for the big three
Many are tagging the “Big Three” teams of Clay County, Knox Central and Jackson County as the teams to beat in this week’s 13th Region Boys Tournament at The Arena, but if you ask the coaches of those respective schools, they believe it’s wide open.
Jason McDaniel’s Corbin Lady Redhounds (23-7) are set to defend their 13th Region crown, as they are scheduled to tip things off against 49th District runner-up North Laurel (15-17) today during first round action of the 13th Region Tournament.

Les Dixon's Daily District Pick'em
Well, I finished my week of district picks pretty good. Going 22-4 isn’t too shabby, but things will get harder this upcoming week when both of the boys’ and girls 13th Region Tournaments begin at The Arena.
Barbourville’s Brent Perry and Jason Mills turned in stellar efforts, combining to score 41 points, but in the end, Knox Central found a way to capture its seventh straight 51st District championship by rallying to knock off their rivals Friday, 54-53.
Roberts leads Clay
North Laurel needed to control Clay County’s strong inside game to give themselves a chance in the 49th District championship game. That is unless the Lady Tigers came out shooting like they did Friday.
