McKenzie boys, Middleton girls enter West Tennessee basketball rankings after Week 14

All district tournaments will have wrapped up by Tuesday night, and it will be time to focus on region tournaments. That is when only the best of the best get to advance.

Region tournaments are tough with only two teams advancing to the sectional round of the postseason.

District champions have proven to be peaking at the right time. McKenzie boys won the District 12-1A title, and the Rebels are now ranked this week.

Middleton girls finished runner-up in District 13-1A, but that was good enough to move back into the rankings.
