SCR-I Teams Face Stiff Competition at Districts

Basketball fans will get to see three of the state’s top teams at the Class 2 District 6 Tournament next week, even if it means driving to Moberly to do it.

Scotland County will be in action February 25 and February 26 as the Tigers and Lady Tigers open play at Moberly Area Community College.

The boys bracket is lead by #9 ranked team in the state, Paris. The Coyotes earned the top seed in the bracket and will seek to avenge last year’s semi-finals upset by Scotland County.

The Tigers earned the #4 seed and will have to open play against #5 Westran on Tuesday, February 26th at 6:00 p.m. The winner will take on the winner of the Paris vs. Milan (#8 seed) contest.

Knox County is the #2 seed and will take on #7 seed Marceline while Canton (#3) will open against last year’s district champions, Salisbury, the #6 seed.

The Boys semifinals are scheduled for February 28th at 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. with the district championship match to be held March 1st at 6:30 p.m.

The girls field is stacked this year led by the #1 ranked team in Missouri Class 2, Westran. Canton, the #5 ranked team in the state could only garner a #2 seed in its own district.

Westran will open against #8 seed Milan. Marceline is the #4 seed and Knox County earned the #5 seed. Those two squads will do battle with the winner likely to face Westran.

Scotland County is at the bottom of the bracket as the #6 seed. The Lady Tigers will open versus #3 seed Salisbury in a rematch of last year’s district opener for both squads. The tip off is set for 6:00 p.m. on Monday, February 25th.

The winner will take on the winner of the Canton vs. Paris (#7 seed) first round match up.

The girls semifinals are set for 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 27th with the title game to be played at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 1st.
