No. 1 FHS boys, Bearden teams to host opening round of District 4-AAA tourney


District 4-AAA Basketball Tournament action kicks off tonight, Thursday, Feb. 15, with a new format for 2007.

No longer do top seeds get a bye into the Region 2-AAA tourney. Also, first-round games are now hosted by the higher seeded team.

The top-seeded Farragut boys and both Bearden teams hope to cash in home-court advantage.

No. 1 Farragut (13-1) hosts No. 8 South-Doyle (2-12) beginning at 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 16, in Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium.

The BHS boys, No. 3 seed (at 11-3) host No. 6 Sevier County (3-11), also at 7 p.m. Friday.

If Farragut wins, they face the William Blount (No. 4) versus Lenoir City (No. 5) winner in the semifinals at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 19, at Maryville High School. A loss by any team in the first round ends its season.

A Bearden win Friday would have the Bulldogs against the Maryville (No. 2) versus Heritage (No. 7) winner in the other semifinal at 8 p.m., Monday, at MHS.

Boys championship game is at 8 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 21, at MHS following a 6:30 consolation game. Top four teams earn spots to the region tourney at West beginning next week.
