Scott County High School replaced Covington Catholic as the No. 1 team in The Courier-Journal’s boys basketball Litkenhous Ratings released Monday.

Scott County (23-5) has an 11-game winning streak and will host Eastern at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Cardinals are led by Michael Moreno (22.9 ppg, 10.2 rpg), a 6-foot-6 forward who is ranked among the state’s top sophomores.

Covington Catholic dropped to No. 2 following its 81-62 loss to defending state champion Paul Dunbar on Saturday. It was the first game back for Colonels junior guard C.J. Fredrick, who had missed six weeks with a foot injury. He scored 21 points in Saturday’s loss.

Trinity is No. 3 in the Litratings, followed by Fern Creek, Bowling Green and Ballard.

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.
