Austin East @ Bearden (1/27)

Let it be said the Bulldogs don't dodge anyone.

A week after playing in their most emotionally charged game in years the Dogs welcome the state top ranked AA team to the Dog House.

Bearden played toe to toe with national power Oak Hill Academy for a majority of their game last Friday and carry their own state top billing in the AAA classification.

Will the emotion of the Oak Hill game carry over or will there be a let down of sorts. Time will tell.

Demonte Simpson, Nathan Parker and Blake Jenkins played their most complete games of the season against the Warriors and they will be called upon for more against the unbeaten Roadrunners. 

Brandon Lopez (Austin East) runs the show for AE and his leadership and ability to get his teammates easy buckets could be a key for the red and blue. 

You won't find a better showcase of talent on one basketball floor anywhere in East Tennessee, so see you there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
