District 11A high school basketball tournament action starts on Saturday and continues next week, but Bethel University will not be hosting this year’s district tournament as it has for the past several years. Rather each game will be hosted by the higher seed, according to TSSAA guidelines.

The quarterfinals of the girls’ tournament will be on Saturday, semifinal games are Feb. 16, and the championship and consolation rounds are Feb. 19, though at different locations.

The boys’ tournament schedule features quarterfinals on Feb. 15, semifinals on Feb. 18, and championship and consolation rounds on Feb. 20, also at different venues.

As of press time Monday afternoon, the McKenzie Lady Rebels were securely in the top seed spot with a 22-1 overall record and a 10-0 district showing.

The Huntingdon Fillies (13-8, 8-1) are the number two seed, and neither the Fillies nor the Lady Rebels have any more regular season district games left to play.

The West Carroll Lady War Eagles (10-13, 5-4) are the third seed, and their Tuesday night district match with the Big Sandy Lady Red Devils (3-9, 1-5) would not knock them out of that spot, even it was a loss.

Tuesday night’s district game between the Clarksburg Lady Rockets (1-15, 1-6) and the Hollow Rock-Bruceton Lady Tigers (2-18, 0-8) may have shifted the remaining three placements, though results from that game were not available at press time.

Things are a little more uncertain in the boys seeding.

As of press time, the War Eagles (13-10, 7-2) were in the top spot, the Mustangs (11-9, 8-2) were second, and the Rebels (13-9, 7-3) were third.

The Mustangs and Rebels are done with district games, but the War Eagles were slated to host the Red Devils (2-12, 1-6) Tuesday night, and a Big Sandy win (though unlikely) would have knocked West Carroll off the top spot and boosted Huntingdon into first place. Tuesday night’s district match between the Tigers (9-14, 3-6) and Rockets (0-15, 0-7) may have proved to be a factor in the lower district placements
