DEFENDING 5A BOYS STATE CHAMPS RECEIVE TOP SEED NOD FOR THE 2019 TALLADEGA COUNTY BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT JANUARY 21ST-26TH AT CHILDERSBURG HIGH SCHOOL
The Aggies sporting at 14-4 record at the time of the Coaches meeting on Wednesday evening received the Tournament's top seed, followed by Talladega, host school Childersburg and Winterboro. Seeds 5-9 went to BB Comer, Talladega County Central, Lincoln, Munford, and Fayetteville. If the seeds hold, there will be a preview of what should be the Tournament's championship game this Friday night when the Aggies host the Tigers. Sylacauga won their first meeting back on December 7th by 8 points. But don't pencil in the brackets just yet. Sylacauga's only loss to an in-county opponent this season came back on December 30th at home against Childersburg in a 51-48 thriller. Talladega has come on strong lately. Chucky Miller's Tigers are on a nine-game winning streak going into Friday's rematch with Sylacauga.
Tournament play for the Boys will begin on Monday, 1/21 at 4:30 PM in the 8-9 Seed play-in game between Munford and Fayetteville. 2 Seed Talladega will face 7th Seed Lincoln in the Monday nightcap at 7:30 PM.
On the Girls side of things, Childersburg received the #1 Seed at Wednesday night's meeting, followed by Talladega County Central, Winterboro, and Lincoln as the Top 4. Seeds 5-9 are Talladega, BB Comer, Munford, Fayetteville, and Sylacauga.
The Lady Tigers are the clear cut favorites entering the Seeding meeting at 16-1. The #2 Seed Fighting Tigers are no slouch at 15-5. They will face off with the #3 Seed Winterboro on Friday, a team Childersburg has already defeated twice in regular season play. TCC and Childersburg will meet next week for the first time this season.
Fayetteville and Sylacauga will open Tournament play on Monday, 1/21 at 3 PM in the 8-9 Play-In game. Talladega County Central will face Munford at 6 PM later that day.
