Doss, PRP for Sixth Region supremacy











The opening night of KHSAA boy's basketball came and went with several intriguing games. Here's a few of the biggest scores from yesterday.

Yesterday's Scores

#1 Ballard 96 #11 Scott County 85*
Augusta 73 St. Patrick 53*
#21 Bullitt East 66 North Oldham 53
McLean County 58 Owensboro 55
Oldham County 87 Harrison County 85
Simon Kenton 103 Holy Cross (Covington) 76

*Trent Gilbert and Brent Bach are two of the leading candidates to lead the state in scoring. Bach had 29 points for Augusta, while Gilbert dropped 40 points on Ballard.

*Quentin Snider and Kelan Martin hit the ground running last night against Scott County, Snider had 32 points while Martin added 29 points. They should be firmly one and two in the Mr. Basketball race after one game, although it's too early to tell much.

Story-lines

- PRP and Doss match-up in a battle for 6th region supremacy. Louisville will once again feature the game of the day as two top ten teams match-up.

A lot has been said about this one. PRP is returning three of the main components that led them to a Sweet Sixteen birth last season.

Doss a team that came into their own last year and because they return Montrell Little, received transfer Jaelin Sandford (who will not play until January after an ACL tear) and the development of Tay Weaver have a chance to get to the Sweet Sixteen themselves.

- Camron Justice, who is thought to be the top of the 2015 class in Kentucky, and Knott County Central begin their season tonight against Jenkins. The Patriots will be without star big man Evan Hall, who is serving a suspension for a fight during a preseason scrimmage.

- #7 Newport Central Catholic opens their season against Dixie Heights. Dixie is still banged up and Brandon Hatton may not be 100% yet, which takes away some of the shine from this game. However, it's still a match-up between two of the 9th region's best.

- #17 Lexington Christian Academy will travel to take on a very good Boyle County team. The Eagles have a young but very talented team and they can make a statement with an early road win. On the other end Boyle County has the chance to take out a ranked team at home. If they're to do that I expect a big game from junior guard Hagen Tyler, who is one of the best players in the 12th region.

- #18 Henderson County will play against Evansville Harrison, which features Vermont signee Ernie Duncan and his two younger brothers Stanley and Everett.

- Madison Southern plays host to defending state champs Madison Central in a big rivalry game. Tensions should be high for this game, especially since it's the first game for both teams.

- Fleming County hosts a very good West Jessamine team. Can they win without Darion Burns?
