Clarksville, TN – The last week of the local high school basketball regular season is here. Only two district games remain before the district tournament, which means only two chances left to grab the regular season championship and the number one seed.

Clarksville, TN – Local high school basketball teams passed the midway point of their season at the beginning of the new year with a chance to improve in the second half.

With three weeks left in the regular season, the competition in District 10-AAA is both heated and fluid. Only two games separate the top six teams, all of whom are at least .500 in district play. Currently, two teams are tied at the top of the rankings. In short, with six games left for most of the teams, the regular season championship is up for grabs.

Clarksville, TN – The new year brings resolutions, colder weather and the second half of the local high school basketball season. Competition on the court intensifies as the teams primarily play district opponents.
The healthiest team who makes the fewest mistakes will be the regular season champion and have momentum for the post season tournaments.
Here is how the boys teams have performed so far.
The Vikings came very close to orchestrating a comeback victory. They cut down an 18-point deficit at the beginning of the third quarter to three points in the fourth quarter.
But the Knights executed down the stretch, eating up time with the lead and making five of six free throws in the fourth quarter to get the win.
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.
