While many teams are practicing for tournament play and others are already beginning tournament play early this week, tonight, both Greeneville and West Greene will wrap up their regular seasons with road trips.

Greeneville will look to put an exclamation point on their season as they travel to Cumberland Gap tonight. Both Greeneville teams are playing some of their best basketball heading into tournament season as the Lady Devils have won 6 of their last 7 and the Greene Devils have went 13-2 since the turn of the calendar and will look for a win tonight to finish 12-0 in conference play this season.

Over the weekend, Greeneville would sweep Claiborne with the Lady Devils winning 77-38 led by superstar freshman Lauren Bailey who finished with 27 points while Delana DeBusk added 13 and Grace Hayes added 12 in the win. The Greeneville boys knocked off Claiborne 73-58 led by 20 points from Jacobi Gillespie while Reid Satterfield added a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Coverage tonight of Greeneville at Cumberland Gap begins at 6:25 PM on 99.5 FM/AM 1340 WGRV.

Also tonight, the West Greene Buffaloes will conclude their regular season as they travel to Claiborne. Both West Greene teams had battles on Friday night against Cumberland Gap with the girls losing a close matchup 48-44 and the boys pulling out a thrilling victory 62-61 led by a big 25 point performance by Allen Vaughn.

Greeneville and West Greene have their spots locked in heading into the District Tournament.

The Lady Buffs and Lady Knights will meet in the district play-in game on Thursday from Grainger High School.

The Greeneville Greene Devils have clinched the 1-seed in the district tournament and will watch the tournament play out through the weekend until they begin their tournament play. West Greene will finish in the bottom two and have to take part in the district play-in game on Thursday against Cumberland Gap where the winner will advance to play 3-seed Grainger.
