Elizabethton girls the No. 1 seed for the District 1-AA basketball tournament

ELIZABETHTON — The girls bracket for the upcoming District 1-AA basketball tournament at Happy Valley is set in stone, the boys, not so much.

The Elizabethton girls, the No. 3-ranked Class AA team in Tennessee, are the undisputed No. 1 seed. 

But on the boys side, things are still up in the air. After Sullivan South’s shocking loss at Elizabethton earlier this week, Unicoi County now has a chance to tie the Rebels for the Three Rivers Conference’s regular season crown and earn the No. 1 seed in next week’s District 1-AA tourney.

If the Blue Devils beat Johnson County on Friday, then the tie is assured and they earn the top seed based on the previously-determined tie-breaker system.

The District 1-AA tournament will begin on Wednesday when the No. 7-seeded Sullivan North girls take on No. 2 Sullivan East at 6:30 p.m. That game will be followed by the No. 7 Happy Valley boys meeting the No. 2 seed, either Unicoi or Sullivan South at 8 p.m.

On Thursday, girls bracket play continues with No. 3 Sullivan South meeting No. 6 Johnson County at 6:30 p.m. No. 4 Happy Valley takes on No. 5 Unicoi County at 8.

The girls semifinals will be held on Saturday with the East/North winner playing the South/Johnson County winner at 4 p.m. The Unicoi/Happy Valley winner earns a berth against the top-seeded Lady Cyclones at 7.

The boys tournament will see No. 3 Elizabethton facing No. 6 Sullivan North on Friday, Feb. 14 at 6:30 p.m. with No. 4 Johnson County taking on No. 5 Sullivan East at 8.

Boys semifinal action will be held Saturday, Feb. 15, when the Elizabethton/North winner takes on the winner of the Happy Valley/ No. 2 seed, either South or Unicoi, at 5:30 p.m.

The Johnson County/East boys winner meets the No. 1 seed, either South or Unicoi, at 8:30 p.m. that night.

Girls consolation and championship games will be played Monday, Feb. 17, at 6:30 and 8 p.m., respectively.

Boys consolation and championship games will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6:30 and 8 p.m., respectively.
