Notes from Thursday Night and the Weekend Schedule


The Road to Rupp had coverage of a couple of games last night, but there were a lot of significant games played throughout the state that had some people talking today.

Holmes went to 20-0 as they beat Scott 60-59. Holmes' Chris Englemon hit 2 free throws with 3 seconds left to keep the Bulldogs undefeated. Jason Booher's next game is Jan. 22nd at Ryle.

The Bryan Station Defenders made known they are a legit 11th region contender last night as they won at Henry Clay 56-54. Larry Morton scored 22 for the Defenders. This was Mike Allen's team's 6 win in a row and has wins over Lafayette, Scott County, and now the Blue Devils.

The Sheldon Clark Cardinals beat Lawrence County on the road last night 64-59. The Bulldogs 6 game losing streak was ended and now play in the 15th region All A Classic finals Saturday night vs. Pikeville. The 57th district is wide open, especially with Johnson Central's Shane Hall in and out of the lineup with "injuries."

Russell won the 16th region All A Classic last night with a 72-44 win over Elliott County. Russell will play the winner of Region 3 Thursday at 11:30am.
