Brentwood in a pair of title games 70 miles apart
By Joe Williams, Sports Editor
Normally you will find the Brentwood girls and boys basketball teams are big supporters of each other. With each in a tournament championship game tonight, you might expect that to continue.
Until you consider they will be 70-miles apart.
The Lady Bruins have made short work of the field at the Beech holiday tournament in Hendersonville. They will get to make a case as one of the top ten teams in the state tonight when they take on Knoxville Farragut at 7 p.m. for the championship.
Brentwood had to beat West Creek and Lechter County (KY) to make the title tilt.
Seventy miles away, the Brentwood boys will be preparing for the chance to win their own title, facing East Nashville in the finals of the Above the Rim Tournament at Hickman County High School in Centerville. The Bruins defeated Lipscomb Academy and University School of Jackson to reach the finals, scheduled to tip-off at 8:30 p.m.
Brentwood will be the second District 11-AAA team the Eagles, members of District 10-AA, have faced in less than ten days. East traveled to Centennial on December 21st, handing the Cougars a 71-34 loss.
Ravenwood and Centennial will also see action at Beech this afternoon. The Cougars face Station Camp at 2:30 p.m., while Ravenwood will take on McGavock at 5:30 p.m. for third place.
The Raptors opened the tournament with win over highly touted Station Camp, falling to West Creek in the second round.
