Munford, Ripley boys enter West Tennessee basketball rankings after Week 4

Over the weekend, the Dynamix Hoopfest was held at University School of Jackson with multiple area teams playing in it. And some of the matchups were against much tougher competition.

Union City boys played a loaded Hamilton Heights team out of Chattanooga. McKenzie girls played the defending Class 1A state champion with an Alabama commitment.

Playing tougher competition is a good thing, and these rankings take that into account.

But we do have two new teams as Munford and Ripley have beaten some top-level teams to maneuver into the top 15.
