Hoops Round-up: Lady Dragons fall, Clinton/Oak Ridge prepare to meet for District title

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL POSTSEASON SCORES

MONDAY

D3AAA Girls’ Consolation Game: Halls 70 Clinton 47…The third-seeded Lady Red Devils rolled at home over the Lady Dragons to claim third place in the D3AAA tournament. Clinton never found its offensive rhythm, and that appeared to lead to some frustration that revealed itself on the defensive end, as Halls had three players score in double figures. Michaela Allen led Halls with 18, while Clinton’s Sarah Burton scored a game-high 21.

Halls will play at District 4 runners-up Maryville on Friday night at 7 in the first round of the Region 2AAA tournament. Clinton will play at Bearden, ranked #1 in the state, Friday night at 7:00, hoping to shock the world and keep its season alive. The first two rounds of the Region tournament are single-elimination.

D3AAA Girls’ Championship Game: Oak Ridge 52 Powell 43…Oak Ridge managed to overcome a pesky Powell squad in the second half to claim their 28th District tournament title all time. Oak Ridge will host Farragut on Friday at 7 in the first round of the Region tournament, while Powell will play host to Heritage.
