CAMPTON – January 8, 2020
Tonight, Hazard and Wolfe County will play a boys-and-girls double-header inside Rose Gymnasium at Wolfe County high school. In the grand scheme of things, each game has the same storyline since each team ranks towards the top of the region. The girls game will begin at 6:00 and the boys game will follow.
The KHSAA’s RPI (Ratings Percentage Index) has Wolfe County and Hazard ranked as the top two teams in the region, as each team has essentially the same rating. To put it into simple terms, Wolfe County is rated 56.7 and Hazard is rated 56.3.
So, the way that RPI currently sees it, there is a two-way tie for first place in the 14th region and those two schools will play each other at Wolfe County on tonight.
The KHSAA’s RPI has Hazard, Knott County Central, and Wolfe County as the top three teams in the region, with each team basically having the exact same rating. To put it into simple terms, Hazard is rated 60.8, Knott Central is rated 60.7 and Wolfe County is rated 60.5.
So, the way that RPI currently sees it, there is a three-way tie for first place in the 14th region and of those three schools, two of them will battle it out in Campton on tonight.
If you are wondering why two of the top programs are playing each other in the quarter-finals of the All-A Classic, that is because the pairings are drawn randomly. The drawing for the bracket took place during softball-season and the same bracket is used for both the boys and the girls.
We’re looking forward to a fun night of basketball!!!
