The opening round of the state tournament is always a fun and exciting time for everyone who is involved. Science Hill returns to state, a place they once made their home. Walker Valley is rather new to the experience but worthy of their place in the field.
Josh Odom (Science Hill)has played inspired basketball since the playoffs have begun and there is no reason to think his enthusiasm will disipate. The Chattanooga signee will be priority one for the Mustangs as they prepare for this opening round clash.
Walker Valley has parlayed a stupendous senior class into close wins and a keep on surviving and advancing attitude. The seniors led by David Ware, Jake Trotter and Brice Sharpe bring experience and a never ending desire for this season to keep flowing into this contest.
A key to this game will be the play of Science Hill senior guard Chris Smith. With most of the Mustangs focus clearly headed for Odem, the 6'2 talent will be looked upon to score and provide some relief for his slender classmate.
