Conclusion

This was a very interesting day of basketball with some good teams and fine players displaying their wares today.  Jeremy Jones had and excellent game for Powell County with his 26 points coming on 10 of 18 from the field and four of seven from the charity stripe.  Woodford County’s Jerome Givens lit up the scoreboard with 39 points, demonstrating why he is one of the top scorers in the state.  Bourbon County coach Brandon Salsman has a good one in Craig Williams.  Williams tallied 39 points and pulled down 12 rebounds.  Williams’ offensive onslaught came on 15 of 23 from the field and nine of 12 from the free throw line.  George Rogers Clark and West Jessamine had an exciting game and both teams should compete for their respective regional crowns.  Scott County missed the presence of 6-3 Sr. Jeremy Nettles who is currently out with an injury, but got good performances from Tyler Hicks, Troy Harris, Zach Van Guilder, and Nick Reed to defeat North Laurel.  North Laurel’s 6-7 220 pound Jr. Oliver Mansour, although saddled with foul problems, tallied 18 points in only 12:40 of play.
