Top 5 high school basketball games during Week 2 of season
With Week 1 in the books, multiple area teams are off to a hot start in the area, and I am 5-0 in my picks for the top five games involving Gibson County area teams.
So here is to another week of success mixed in with lots of turkey and dressing.
BOX SCORES: Gibson County area high school basketball box scores
NEW DISTRICTS: TSSAA releases new districts, regions for 2023-24, 2024-25 school years
SCHEDULE: Gibson County area basketball schedule for Week 2
Check out the top games in Week 2:
Peabody (1-1) at Dresden (2-0) Girls (6 p.m., Monday): This is a rematch of last year’s Region 7-1A semifinal that Dresden won on the way to reaching the 1A state semifinals. Peabody is coming off a dominant performance against 3A Henry County.
Odom’s Pick: Dresden
Humboldt (0-0) at Gibson County (2-0) Boys (6 p.m., Monday): Humboldt kicks off the season against a team that played twice last week. The Vikings are looking to rebound from last season when they missed the region tournament.
Odom’s Pick: Gibson County
South Gibson (2-0) at Chester County (0-2) Boys (7:15 p.m., Monday): The Hornets picked up an overtime win over an athletic Ripley team with a strong defensive effort. Another solid defensive effort will be needed to knock off the Eagles
Odom’s Pick: South Gibson
South Side (2-0) at Gibson County (2-1) (4 p.m., Friday): Dealing with the Lady Hawks’ athleticism is tough for any team. Gibson County has done it with a strong defensive performance in recent years, but South Side reached the 3A title game last season
Odom’s Pick: South Side
Bradford (1-1) at Milan (0-0) Boys (5:15 p.m., Friday): While the Bulldogs’ season starts on Monday, this could be the first time that the football players could play for Milan. Either way, the Bulldogs will want to knock off a county rival.
Odom’s Pick: Milan
