Two big games in 19-2A on Tuesday. Crockett and Westwood face off for the outright district lead. Westwood defeated Crockett 65-62 in the third place game of the Lovelady tournament just over a week ago. I lean towards Westwood at home, but it should be a really good game.
Central Heights and Woden should also be a good game. It's a rivalry game, and both teams are coming off of tough losses. Central Heights already has three losses in district and cant afford to drop many more games. Woden looked like they were in the running for the title until Elkhart blew them out on Friday. This will be Central Heights' first big road test in district.
I don't expect much good to come out of Kerens/Slocum. Slocum has been too inconsistent and I can't get a good feel on how they are this year. There is a lot of talent, but not sure they have the same fire that they have had the past few years.
As for what game I would like to see most, it is obviously the White Oak/Tatum game...

Central Heights (1-2) only has 2 district losses to the 2 best teams, Westwood and Crockett.  As long as they beat everyone else in district, they'll be fine.  I think besides top 2 teams, this game @ Woden could be their toughest test.  Woden did lose to Elkhart, but they could still make the playoffs if they beat Central Heights twice and only lost to WW and Crockett.  So if CH wins this game @ Woden, I think they'll be in a great position to get a playoff spot.

You're right...I think that it would be tough for CH to drop another game so early in district. Elkhart has proven that they can potentially be a player as the year goes on, and tiebreakers will be critical at the end of the year in this district.
The sky isn't falling in Central Heights, but a loss here will definitely sting...

I just updated the games to watch because I noticed I overlooked a few good matchups.  I forgot a few undefeated teams in district possibly squaring off for first place which is Franklin @ Trinity and Troup @ Frankston.  Yall have any thoughts on these 2 games or any of the friday games?

What's the word on Troup are they a big team, do they have shooters, play great defense just wondering since they played Tatum to a 5 point game a couple weeks ago.....!,

Saw Troup play in the Burger King classic in November.  That team could not have kept up with Tatum.  Perhaps they were still transitioning from football, don't know.  Not a great deal of size or speed.
