This will be the fourth meeting of the year between the two schools, with the Lady Blaze winning the previous matchups by double digits. The most recent came last week in the District 7-AAA title game, 60-37. The Lady Patriots, in the championship game for the first time since 2005, have been pounding the ball inside to Shelby Gibson. The sophomore has scored 45 points in the first two region games. Blackman's defensive pressure will challenge Oakland. Game time is 7pm with WGNS State Farm coverage beginning at 6:45 with the DirecTV by EnterSource Pregame Show. Both teams are ensured of a sectional tournament berth. Bradley Central and Cumberland County are playing in the 3-AAA title game. Our winner will host their loser and vice versa. The girls sectionals are Saturday. WGNS will cover both games. We will have live coverage of the game in Murfreesboro with Jon Dinkins and Bryan Barrett. Rafferty Cleary will travel for the tape-delay broadcast. Tipoff is at 7 local time. For WGNS Sports, I'm Bryan Barrett.
