Despite Saturday’s 62-56 loss to South Laurel, the Covington Catholic High School boys basketball team kept the No. 1 spot in The Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous Ratings released Monday.

The Colonels are 12-4 and are scheduled to host Cincinnati’s Winton Woods on Tuesday.

Junior guard and leading scorer C.J. Fredrick (21.9 ppg) has missed Covington Catholic’s past five games with a high ankle sprain. Colonels coach Scott Ruthsatz said Fredrick likely will be out “the next several weeks.”

Ballard (10-3) is No. 2 in the Litratings, followed by Trinity (15-1), Bowling Green (12-2) and Scott County (10-3).

The Litratings are a computerized ranking of every team in the state based on strength of schedule, margin of victory and other factors. Games against out-of-state opponents are not factored.
