beaten with a 71-66 win over a tough Tennessee squad to capture the top spot in
next weeks playoff openers.


Lazas and Chris Cox

who went for 17, led a very
balanced scoring attack for Kentucky.


"The Natural" Jack Montague (Brentwood) led all
scorers with 26, while Danterio Dansby
added 18 for Tennessee
in the loss.


Kentucky will tangle with North Carolina in the
12:00 contest next Saturday. Tennessee

added 15 and highly touted youngster Jalen
Lindsey (CPA)
added 14.


Skylar Sims (CPA) led
Florida with
16 and Connor Brandon (Wilson Central) finished

11:00 while Florida
battles the ACC top seed Duke in the opener at 9:00.



Georgia Tech 97

North Carolina 81


Jonathan Fields
(White's Creek)
led five teammates in double figures with 24 and overcame a
monster effort from North Carolina's Anvil Nelson (Brentwood)
to outscore the Heels 97-81.


Nelson finished with 38 points on an array of low-post
moves, drop steps and short finishes in the lane.


Fields was assisted in the scoring column by Kiont Jones (Spring Hill) added 23, Montrae Williams (Spring Hill) chipped
in 18 and Taylor Akers (CPA) and Britt
Headden (Franklin Classical)
scored 15 each for Tech.

scored 14 for North Carolina.


Despite the win Georgia Tech finishes 3rd in the
ACC and will tangle with the SEC's #2 seed Vanderbilt in game action at 11:00
on Saturday.



Clemson 66

Duke 55


Clemson had five players in double figures led by Clay Lineberry (TCA) with 17 to knock
Duke from the ranks of the unbeaten 66-55.


A potential blow-out got into single digits with some timely
shooting from James Wilson (CPA), who
finished with 14, and some tough buckets from Robert Veal (Ravenwood), who led all scorers with 19 in the loss.


Andrew Wilson
(Brentwood) and Andy Moore (Ravenwood)
finished with 11 each and Cham Quao (Webb School)
and Kubi Sisiki (Overton)
both added 10 in the win.


With a three way tie in the ACC, Duke still managed to grab
the top spot on point differential and will play Florida in at 9:00 on Saturday.


Clemson will tangle with Tennessee at 10:00.
