Trigg County junior Jeremy Jones leads the Wildcats in scoring at 19.7 points a game and passed the 1,000-career point mark earlier this season at the Marion, Ill. Holiday Tournament.
He is also steadily moving up Trigg County’s career scoring list.
Jones recently passed Tommy Cassity for 13th on the all-time scoring list with 1,163 points. Just ahead of him are Billy Alexander (1,198), David Radford (1,228), and Buddy Sivills (1,262).
Jones also entered week needing just 17 assists to move past Anthony Mayes into second on the all-time TCHS assist list. Jones’ total of 378 trails only Mayes (394) and Lemar Northington (606).
He is averaging 5.1 assists a game.
Meanwhile, Kenny Ray Turner is 16th on the all-time scoring list with 1,027 points. He needs 48 points to pass John Graham and move into 15th place.
On the girls side, Felicia Crenshaw needs just 17 points to move past Wendy Snyder into 15th on the all-time scoring list.
The senior guard entered the week with 731 points. Directly ahead of her on the scoring list are Katie Redd (762), Ashley Guinn (785), and Calandra Boyd (795).
While scoring 1,000 points is not likely to happen for Crenshaw, she could finish her career as high as 12th on the all-time scoring list.
Meanwhile, Crenshaw needs 55 steals to move into second on the all-time list behind Pauline White (388). Crenshaw entered the week with 291 steals, 54 behind Karen Johnson’s total of 345.
Crenshaw, the only senior on the Lady Wildcat roster, is averaging 13.5 points and 4.4 steals per game this year.
An unusual stat came from Trigg County’s win over the Providence girls Feb. 1.
Junior Davida Braxton didn’t start, but came off the bench to five points in 11:30 of action.
While her offensive numbers don’t blow you away, consider what she helped do on defense.
Providence didn’t score a single point while Braxton was on the floor for her 11:30 of playing time. That translates to 18 Providence possessions without scoring a single point.
Among the starters, Providence scored just six points in the 15:51 that Laquisha Boyd was on the floor, or six points in 30 possessions.
The Second Region’s longest losing streak will end this year.
Fort Campbell, who has posted 12 consecutive losing seasons in boys basketball dating back to 1992, have assured themselves of a winning season.
The Lady Falcons also ended a nine-year losing streak to Eighth District opponents with a 68-63 win over Hopkinsville last week.
Fort Campbell, who was 3-23 last year, is coached by Amy Sholar, the only woman currently serving as head coach of a boys basketball program in Kentucky.
The third-longest losing streak will also end with Union County off to a 13-3 start.
The Braves have recorded four straight losing seasons.
Dawson Springs, who entered the week with a 5-14 record, is likely headed for their sixth straight losing season, which would become the longest streak of any team in the region.
Meanwhile, the region’s longest streak of winning seasons is also in jeopardy, with Hopkins Central entering the week with a 10-13 record.
The Storm have had five consecutive winning seasons, followed by Henderson County with four.
Lyon County has also recorded four straight winning seasons but will see that streak end this year.
Trigg County is on track for their third straight winning season.
On the girls side, the region’s four longest streaks of winning seasons will likely continue with Henderson County poised for their 20th straight winning season.
Caldwell County has recorded 15 straight, followed by Christian County (7) and Union County (5).
However, Caldwell County’s streak may be the closest to ending of the above schools. The Lady Tigers entered the week with a 10-9 record and still have games left with Webster County and Hopkins Central, who they have already lost to this season, and Christian County.
Fort Campbell, like the boys team, owns the region’s longest streak of losing seasons at eight. They entered the week with a 7-10 record.
Providence, who is 1-16, is likely to post a seventh straight losing season, while Livingston Central entered the week with a 9-10 record and will have to pull an upset or two to avoid a seventh straight losing season.
Seasons where teams ended with a .500 record were not included in the streaks.
