Clinton Dragons (#1) won 15 of their last 16 games, dating back to the season’s opener.  Only McMinn County and Fulton own wins over the Dragons. 

The South Side team has two losses, but remember Jackson South Side (#2) and Greeneville (#9) played for the AA State Championship last spring.  They are both stacked again.

Greenbrier (#3) is perhaps the biggest surprise in the Top 15.  The Bobcats suffered just a single loss so far.

Red Bank (#7) is fighting with fervor to stay atop their district (5-1 district record).  Few teams statewide are better at rebounding that the Lions. Consider Reco Trimble tugs down 5.4 rebounds per and he is not alone. Kalen Sewell helps with 5.0 a night. Jaylen Bates and Nick Smith Nick Smith 6'2" | SG Red Bank | 2023 State TN are helping with 4.3 rpg and 4.0 respectively.
