Clarksville, TN – A buzzer beating shot, clutch free throws, a defensive stop or a run in overtime, the boys basketball teams are doing whatever they can to get wins early this season. A lot of them have already found their formula for success. However, a few are still looking for what it takes to get just a single win.
The battle in District 10-AAA is hot and heavy, but not as hot as the team sitting at the top of District 11AA.
The Montgomery Central Indians (8-1) defeated Lewis County and Fairview last week to increase their current win streak to seven games. They are undefeated in their district and have lost only one game so far against Cheatham County back in November.
The Kenwood Knights (7-2) have only lost two games so far this season. Last week they escaped a close game against the Clarksville High Wildcats, 49-52, and then skewered the West Creek Coyotes, 66-49 to remain undefeated in the district. The Knights have won their last five games.
