Cantrall, Litkenhous, and 859 Sports Combined Rankings Boys Basketball 2/13/15

The 859Sports team of mathematicians, analysts, and bar flies have been hard at work this morning.  Some interesting diversity in the polls.  For example, 859Sports likes Trimble County, Ludlow, and Augusta better than the other two systems.  Which poll do you find most accurate?

Boys

I don’t think it is too much of a stretch to say that Oldham County is playing the best basketball out of everyone in the region.  The Colonels are 21-4 and find themselves in the midst of an 8 game winning streak.   Their 4 losses have come against Eastern, Trinity, Scott County, and North Oldham.  Owen County is barely clinging to number 1 as they find themselves in the strong part of their schedule.  Collins handed Owen County its fourth loss on 2/5 to put them at 22-4 and 14-1 in the region.  Oldham County, Owen County, and Collins each have only one loss in the region.  Collins’ only region loss was to Oldham.

This is the first time the computer has ranked the girls.  Simon Kenton is 20-1, 6-0 in the region and nearly doubled up number 2 Shelby County in the first game of the season.  Shelby County is probably a much better team now than they were back then and find themselves at a solid 21-5, 8-2 in the region.

Former South Oldham Star Jasmine Whitfield Blossoming For Cincinnati

South Oldham’s single season scoring record holder, Jasmine Whitfield, is now averaging over 11 points per game for the University of Cincinnati women’s basketball team.   The 5’10 junior guard has started in each of the Bearcats 18 games; successfully recovering from a knee injury that cost her an entire month last season.  Whitfield, an engineering major, has developed into an important piece of the puzzle for the Bearcats, who only have two seniors on the entire roster.

Whitfield, along with teammate Makenzie Cann, are making a name for Kentucky’s 8th Region girl’s basketball at the collegiate level.  She has been an automatic 80.6% from the free throw line and is the Bearcats third leading scorer, while averaging 2 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game.  During her senior season at South Oldham, Whitfield averaged 22.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.4 steals and 2.5 assists.

The Bearcats host nine-time NCAA women’s basketball champion Connecticut on Sunday (3 p.m.) at Fifth Third Arena.

One year ago, Makenzie Cann was tearing up the 8th Region while averaging 17.3 points and 5.6 rebounds and leading the Anderson County Lady Bearcats to what would be a 28-5 record and their second straight Eighth Region title.  Cann was named the 8th Region Player of the Year by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches and finished ranked first in Anderson County history in assists (645), second in points (2,207) and steals (468) and fourth in rebounds (748).

This season, Cann is once again a Bearcat.  The University of Cincinnati guard, is having a very productive freshman campaign for the Clifton Bearcats, averaging 24 minutes and over 6 points per game.  The 6’0 guard, made at least one 3-pointer in her first 13 games and is shooting 35.1% from 3-point range.

Now in the midst of the AAC conference schedule, Cann is getting experience at the highest level of women’s collegiate basketball.  Sunday, January 25, 2015 @ 3:00 p.m., the Bearcats play host to Connecticut (17-1), ranked #2 in the polls (8 first place votes) and historically one of the top three or four women’s programs in country.

Cincinnati (5-13) is 4-3 at home and 2-4 in conference play.  The Bearcats travel to Connecticut on February 3.
