Hampton vs. University
Josh Padgett leads University to the region showdown with Hampton. University defeated Hancock County in the semis and is looking for a trip to the 'boro.
Grace Christian vs. Greenback
The Cherokees beat Wartburg in their own gym and face a Grace team they have seen a couple times this season already. Cameron Pridemore is bound and determined to leads the Rams to a state tourney berth.
Hampton @ Grace Christian
Greenback @ University
Temple vs. CSAS
Defending state champs and star Jeremy Sexton remain alive and get a tough and hardnosed CSAS squad. CSAS got by Grace Baptist and are on the proverbial roll.
Jackson County vs. Westmoreland
Jackson County pulled off the stunner beating Pickett County after losing to them all season long. Bradley Crowder was huge for J.C. Westmoreland led by sophomore gunner E.J. Perry disposed of Clay County and set up this region finale.
CSAS @ Westmoreland
Jackson County @ Temple
Eagleville vs. Nashville Christian
Nashville Christian behind 25 markers from Caden Anderson beat tough Van Buren County to keep their record unblemished within the states borders. Eagleville is deep and has experience this deep in the season.
Culleoka vs. Moore County
Moore County won the district championship and the teams split during the regular season so this will be a battle. Tyler Jean became Moore County's all-time leading scorer and would love to widen that gap. Culleoka is tourney tested, this will be fun.
Eagleville @ Moore County
Culleoka @ Nashville Christian
Humboldt vs. Union City
The Golden Tornadoes are making huge statements with 100+ point games and M.J. Brown staking his claim on another Mr. Basketball trophy. Humboldt is big and tough and would love nothing more than knocking off the cats from the U.C.
Manassas vs. Middleton
Manassas is deep and all but ready to unleash the Lions on the unsuspecting players from Middleton. I guess unsuspecting would be the wrong choice of words since they have played twice this season, Manassas won both.
Middleton @ Union City
Humboldt @ Manassas
Rutledge vs. Unicoi County
Skylar McBee is playing at another level, as evident by his 30 point effort against Johnson County in the semis, but Unicoi has depth and Cameron Miller is a solid player. Lukas Merrill could be the difference for Rutledge in this game.
Fulton vs. Austin East
The score reads A.E. 2 and Fulton 1. Fulton got the district championship now the stakes are higher and neither squad wants to travel to play.
Fulton @ Unicoi County
Rutledge @ Austin East
McMinn Central vs. Howard
The Hustlin Tigers have something to prove but McMinn is solid, well coached and has players with tourney experience.
Livingston Academy vs. White House
White House welcomed Jeremy Barnes back just in time. Rogers Gaines always plays well in tourney action, he had 23 against Upperman. Chase Dunn exploded for 49 in his battle with John Jenkins, who had 35, and is convinced his guys are not playing.
Livingston Academy @ Howard
McMinn Central @ White House
CPA vs. Giles County
The Bobcats always seem to be alive this time of year. A big win against Lipscomb leads them directly towards juggernaut CPA. Hunter Miller leads a balanced CPA attack and Zaccheus Mason will be match-up Giles must have an answer for.
Creek Wood vs. Bolivar Central
Bolivar is back to their rightful place inn the region finals. Deep and talented they get a Creek Wood squad who jumped on district frontrunner Sycamore and made a Thursday night date with Bolivar.
Creek Wood @ CPA
Giles County @ Bolivar Central
Dyer County vs. Haywood County
The Choctaws knew they were going to be here, Haywood put things together late and remain alive. Dyer County depth will be tough for the Tomcats. Can "The Truth" lead them home.
Mitchell vs. BTW
This is the rematch the city of Memphis has been waiting for since Mitchell knocked BTW out of the city championship. Mitchell stumbled slightly in the district finals but regained balance and has the momentum right now.
Haywood County @ Mitchell
BTW @ Dyer County
Dobyns Bennett vs. Science Hill
This will be the fourth meeting between these squads with D.B. holding the edge. Both squads have some depth and good guard play but D.B. has the distinct size advantage inside.
Oak Ridge vs. Bearden
The Wildcats knocked off defending AAA state champion Maryville behind Jared Stephens and with Quinche Dowdell sadled with foul difficulties. Bearden beat Farragut for the fourth time and has the home court edge in this one.
Science Hill @ Bearden
Oak Ridge @ Dobyns Bennett
Cleveland vs. Red Bank
Their record looks strange but Cleveland is playing well and has youth on their side. Red Bank is tough and athletic led by Tim Benford, this could be a track meet.
Siegel vs. White County
Experience prevailed as Siegel knocked off the favorite in homestanding Shelbyville. White County bested Oakland and would love to make Monday night a home contest for the Spartan warriors.
Siegel @ Red Bank
Cleveland @ White County
Clarksville vs. Wilson Central
Senior leadership prevailed with Mr. Basketball finalist Tyrone Caldwell leading another hard fought victory. Wilson Central is scrappy and well coached with nothing to loose. Thats very dangerous.
Hillsboro vs. Antioch
Antioch took no prisoners with its whitewash of Franklin and have their sights set on doing more of the same to Hillsboro. Darrell Miller has been a gem for the Burros who still have some life in them.
Wilson Central @ Antioch
Hillsboro @ Clarksville
Raleigh-Egypt vs. Craigmont
Craigmont got the Pharoahs in the district finals and Coach Adams won't let them forget it either. Terrico White has played Mr. Basketball worthy this season and would love a couple more games to solidify that honor.
White Station vs. Ridgeway
The Spartans behind Julian Burton pulled off the shcoker and giant killed the giant killer. Transfer Ferrakohn Hall will be eligible to play for White Station during the sub-state game, which could be an interesting dilemna. Ridgeway wants state and nothing will stand in the way.
White Station @ Raleigh-Egypt
Craigmont @ Ridgeway
