Ask almost any coach in the 43rd District and he or she will tell you they have a shot to win the girls high school district basketball championship this week.
And if those coaches are honest, they'd also probably say their teams could just as easily lose in the first round.
It's been that way in the district this season.
A doozy of a first-round matchup pits No. 23 Paul Laurence Dunbar against No. 20 Lexington Catholic.
The Knights, who played a brutal schedule and just rose above .500 in time for the post-season, have won four straight, including a big win over then-No. 5 Elizabethtown last week.
The Bulldogs (19-6) have won three in a row and four of their last five.
The winner will face tournament host Tates Creek (15-11) in the semifinals. The other semifinal is between Lexington Christian (19-6) and Lafayette (11-15), which topped the Eagles by 11 points on Feb. 11.
In the 42nd District, tournament host Scott County, ranked No. 10, is one of the hottest teams in the region with nine straight wins, including a 20-point victory over Bryan Station.
Station (16-8), which has won two of its last three games, meets Sayre in the first round. The Spartans (18-7) also have won two in a row.
Elsewhere in the 11th Region, No. 11 Madison Central (25-1) with its 13-game win streak is favored in the 44th District. and No. 23 Franklin County (21-7) is favored and unbeaten in the 41st District.
