Henry Clay Wins Republic Bank Classic

The Henry Clay Blue Devils have quickly put their name into the talk of Sweet 16 contenders over the last month and they continued that with a win over host Lexington Catholic yesterday in the finals of the Republic Bank Classic.

Mike Fields of reporting:

After winning the Woodford County Invitational the week before Christmas, the Blue Devils rallied past host Lexington Catholic 69-64 to win the Republic Bank Holiday Classic on Sunday night.
Christen Cunningham, who sparked the comeback by scoring all of his 17 points in the second half, was motivated by Henry Clay's loss to Lexington Catholic in the semifinals here last year.
"We got pushed around and punished by these guys, and we didn't want a repeat of that," Cunningham said.
"I knew I had to step up, and my teammates did, too. We showed great character."
Henry Clay, No. 5 in the state in the pre-season rankings, has played up to its rating with a 12-1 record, including 11 victories in a row.

Here is an updated look at Henry Clay's results during their 12-1 run.
