Gibson County girls back to No. 1 in West Tennessee basketball rankings after Week 11

Teams got back to the court this week after a 10-day hiatus due to snow the covered most of West Tennessee.

That stretch of no games and less practices meant there were definitely a few shakeups in this week’s rankings.

One of which is Gibson County girls returning to the No. 1 spot ahead of Dyersburg, as the Lady Trojans lost to Huntingdon.
