Bradford girls, Sacred Heart boys back in West Tennessee High School Basketball Rankings after Week 8

All the talk right now in high school basketball is about district contests. Each week seems to have its own set of games that is going to likely determine the top seeds heading into February’s tournaments.
There always seems to be a good mix of upsets in those games, and that is why there were major changes to the boys rankings this week.
Here are the top 12 high school basketball teams in West Tennessee outside of Shelby County:
