The Ripley Tigers, from Ripley, TN, will be playing in the Region 8 AA Championship game tonight against long-time rivals, Haywood Co. Tomcats. The Tigers are playing in the Regional Championship game for the first time in 10 years and with playing for the regional crown, they have automatically qualified for the Sub-State tournament. The Tigers will have to defeat a Haywood team that has beaten Ripley in all 3 matchups this season, with the last coming in the District Championship game, just days ago. For the Tigers to win, they will need to contain Haywood’s shooters and try to stop former Mr. Basketball candidate, Jordon Vanardo. Ripley is more than capable of winning this game, it’s just a matter of the team executing and believing in themselves.  The game tips-off tonight in Covington, TN @ 7:30pm. #BTSE
