Of the eight teams in the District 9 AAA playoffs, three or four could conceivably win the championship. Entering play Friday the bracket lacked a loser. Clean, unblemished entrants.

Friday the event opened and the following players displayed unique coolness under pressure.
2018 G Zyun Mason (Gallatin) lit up the scoreboard for Gallatin Friday afternoon. Fans were still settling in to their seats as the dual-sport athlete buried his second three-pointer. Mason scored 13 of the Green Wave’s 30 first half points.
2018 WG Zool Kueth (Gallatin) benefits from an uncommon length on the wing. Kueth becomes a legitimate low-major prospect when he hits the outside shot. The elegant 6-foot-6 wing attacked the offensive glass and scored in a variety of ways. Nobody in central Tennessee is improving at a more rapid rate than Zool.
2018 G Bryce Keith (Portland) scored 21 points, but his Panthers suffered a crushing by the hands of the Golden Bears.
2019 Bryan Aiken (Mt. Juliet) put 15 points in the basket.
2019 G Gavin Wilson (Mt. Juliet) dominated the first half Friday night. he is a special shooter.
2020 WG Will Pruitt (Mt. Juliet) lead all Golden Bears with 17 points.
2018 SF Gavin Johnson (Wilson Central) scored 25 points for the Wildcats.
