Lexington, KY – Welcome to the Pure Prospects 2019 KHSAA Sweet 16 match-up previews. Our scouts and analysts break down each match-up, name players to watch, and predictions for each game. Second round will take place Friday, with semifinals tipping off Saturday evening. The State Championship game will take place Sunday at 2 pm. ET.
March 8th 12:00pm Walton-Verona (28-6) vs Campbell County (30-4)
Walton-Verona Bearcats 8th Region
Key Players: #42 Dieonte Miles, 14.8; #25 Kameron Pardee, 13.5; #3 Garrett Jones, 10.3
The Bearcats have faced stiff competition all season. Even though they have the 8th Region POY in Miles, they really play team basketball. They have 2 guys inside that go 6’8+ and several scrappy guards that only know one speed and can shoot the lights out if they get hot. If the guards are feeling it, they are hard to beat.
Campbell County Camels 10th Region:
Key Players: #11 Reid Jolly (23.0 p/g, 10r/g); #4 Drew Wilson (18, 41% 3FG)
The 10th region continues to produce in the Sweet 16. After upsetting the undefeated boys from John Hardin, the Camels are ready for battle. Jolly and Wilson seek to get another win to keep the strong season rolling. These guys are hard nosed and have proven they belong. There is no quit in the Camels but can they take down a taller WV?
Prediction: Campbell County
