Tuesday's top H.S. games to see (2/5)

Scotts Hill (18-5, 9-1) at Madison (17-9, 8-3) (Girls)

Earlier meeting: Scotts Hill won 70-61

Players to watch: Scotts Hill post Chelsea Wyatt; Madison post Taylor Davis

What to know: The objective is simple. Win and Scotts Hill is the No. 1 seed in the District 15-A tournament. Lose and the Lady Lions are tied for the top spot with Middleton. Scotts Hill has won five straight games since losing to Lexington. Madison is still trying to find consistency. The Lady Mustangs would certainly find some momentum with a win over Scotts Hill. Madison has secured the No. 3 seed in the district tournament.


Bolivar (17-5, 11-1) at McNairy Central (19-5, 9-3) (Girls)

Earlier meeting: Bolivar won 48-39

Players to watch: Bolivar guard Kelsey Kirk; McNairy Central post Mallorie Sweat

What to know: The Lady Tigers did a good job at home taking McNairy Central’s post players out of the offense. Bolivar will have to do that again. A win by the Lady Tigers and they have the No. 1 seed in the District 14-AA tournament secured. McNairy Central has Bolivar and Chester County remaining in district play this week, so much is yet to be decided for the Lady Bobcats this week. Win both and McNairy Central could be the No. 2 seed or lose both and they could fall as far as a No. 5 seed.


Westview (23-3, 15-1) at Obion County (21-6, 12-2) (Girls)

Earlier meeting: Westview won 57-48

Players to watch: Westview post Teddy Vincent; Obion County post Brandi Goodman

What to know: The Lady Chargers are in a fight for the No. 1 seed in the District 13-AA tournament, which means this is a must-win. Westview is playing without starting guard Jasmine Howard, but the Lady Chargers are playing well right now. Obion County is coming off a week of playing four games in six days, but all four resulted in wins. The Lady Rebels are trying to get back into the hunt for the No. 1 seed.


TCA (20-4, 8-2) at Riverside (14-8, 7-2) (Boys)

Earlier meeting: TCA won 73-60

Players to watch: TCA guard William Hall; Riverside guard Dylan Scott

What to know: Riverside has three tough games this week beginning with this one before playing Middleton on Thursday and Friday. If the Panthers can win all three, they can be the No. 1 seed in the tournament. TCA is also fighting for the No. 1 seed and must beat Riverside and Adamsville this week to stay in a tie with Middleton. The Lions are full of offensive weapons and that has posed problems for opposing teams.


Huntingdon (13-11, 11-4) at West Carroll (16-9, 13-2) (Boys)

Earlier meeting: West Carroll won 58-54

Players to watch: Huntingdon guard Justice Scott; West Carroll guard Jamal Glenn

What to know: The Mustangs are playing well right now and are on a five-game winning streak that includes wins over Bradford and McKenzie. Huntingdon can’t win the regular season district title with four losses already, but momentum would be big going into the District 13-A tournament next week. West Carroll is in a tie for the No. 1 seed in the tournament with McKenzie, so a win here is important to the War Eagles.


JCS (13-1), 7-2) at Fayette Academy (14-9, 6-2) (Boys)

Earlier meeting: JCS won 56-49

Players to watch: JCS forward Lucas Pyron

What to know: Jackson Christian School, Fayette Academy and St. George’s are in a tie for the top spot in the district. The loser is looking at the No. 3 seed in the district going into the region tournament next week. The Eagles pulled out the win at home, but now they must win on the road. This is JCS’ final district game. Fayette Academy still has to play Tipton-Rosemark.
