Originally scheduled for yesterday, due to weather, the Region 7AA Basketball tournament will be played today. Both the boys and girls will compete in the semifinals of today’s tournament with the girls beginning at 4:00pm and the boys following immediately thereafter around 5:30pm. The Lady Wolverines, as the number two seed, will take on the Lady Indians of Chattooga, the number three seed. The Lady Wolverines are 11-6 overall, playing for an opportunity to play in the championship game and host a state playoff game next week.
The boys will play Model High School immediately following the girls game. The Wolverines are 9-7 overall, after beating Pepperell on Tuesday night on a three pointer at the buzzer by sophomore Brody Cooper. The Wolverines were narrowly beat by the Blue Devils the last time these two got together, 62-58 in overtime. The winner advances to the finals on Thursday and will also have the opportunity to host a first round state playoff game next week.
