AN INSIGHT TO THE 9TH & 10TH REGION BOYS ALL “A” CLASSICS
1/18/2012 - by Jordan Fugate
9TH REGION
The 9th Region All “A” Classic tournament is usually stacked with some great basketball teams, and this year is no different. Returning champs NewCath (9-4) are accompanied by Holy Cross (15-2), and the 2010 All “A” Classic champions, Newport (11-7).

Although these power house schools might seem like they may just glide through their games in this tournament, that is not the case. With teams like St. Henry with a (59-43) win earlier this season against Newport and Lloyd Memorial with wins against three other teams this season who are participating in the All “A” Classic. This tournament will be no walk in the park for any team, even the returning champs of NewCath.

Some notable players to keep your eye on this tournament are the top three players in the tournament according to (www.allaclassic.org), which include Brady Hightchew (NewCath), Jake Burger (Holy Cross), and Christian McClendon (Holy Cross).

The 9th Region All A Championship game can also be watched LIVE Saturday night at 7PM as part of the Republic Bank Game of the Week.

10TH REGION
If anyone has been to the 10th region All “A” Classic tournament within the past eight years, you know that it is ALL Bishop Brossart. From 2003 until now the Mustangs have won every single 10th region All “A” Classic, and as shocking as it might sound 2012 looks no different. Brossart (12-4) is highly favored as the top team followed by Augusta (8-7) and Bracken County (8-11).

With Paris and Bracken County facing each other in the first round of the tournament as well as Brossart facing Augusta, it should make for some entertaining games of basketball. Although, as stated before, many people already have their minds made up about this tournament and who the champions will be, realistically I don’t blame them. However with a more difficult first couple of rounds for the Mustangs they will need to be ready to play every time they step foot on the court, if they want to extend that All “A” championship streak any longer.

Some notable players to keep your eye on this tournament are the top four players in the tournament according to (www.allaclassic.org), which include Ryan Gallenstein (Saint Patrick), Aaron Jacobs (Paris), and Zach Fardo (Bishop Brossart), and Joe Jennings (Bishop Brossart).

All 10th Region All “A” Classic games will be held at Bracken County High School January 16 - January 21.
