Holiday hoops ramping back up to close out 2017

With Christmas now behind us and the new year just around the corner, high school basketball action will ramp back up beginning today.

The Renasant Bank Classic at Maryville High School will feature the Anderson County boys taking on Gallatin as well as Powell against White County in the afternoon session, while the evening session will focus on ladies’ action. The Powell girls face off against McMinn Central, followed by the Campbell County Lady Cougars taking on Fulton, and capped off by the Anderson County Lady Mavs tangling with their hosts, Maryville. Play continues through the week at Maryville.

The Oak Ridge Lady Wildcats are in Greeneville this week for the Andrew Johnson Bank Ladies Classic, where they open up today against North Greene. The Wildcat boys, meanwhile, are in Nashville for the Next Level Hoops Fest at CPA, where they open up against Discovery (Georgia).

Called a tournament, but actually more of a showcase and festival, play opens up at the Harriman High School Christmas Tournament on Thursday with games at two locations. Both the Clinton Dragons and Lady Dragons will take part, with both opening up against Oakdale on Thursday afternoon at 4 pm in the Harriman Middle School Gym, with the Clinton girls looking for a third win this season over Oakdale, followed at 5:30 pm by the Dragon boys looking to avenge a pair of early-season losses to the Eagles.

Friday, Clinton will be back in the middle school gym with the girls taking on Harriman at 2:30 pm and the boys playing immediately after against Lenoir City.

Clinton will close out the middle school venue on Saturday night, when the Lady Dragons battle Coalfield at 7 pm, followed by the Dragons and the Yellow Jackets at 8:30.

WYSH’s live coverage of Clinton High School basketball continues after the new year when the Fox & Farley Full Court Press returns on Tuesday January 2nd for a home doubleheader against Heritage.
