The game will have most likely helped determine final seedings before the district tournament begins on Friday May 7, with the 1st round of district tourney games being played at the sight of the higher seed. The surviving teams will then gather at Springfield, TN on Monday, May 10 to begin the double elimination tournament with the 1st and 2nd place finishers advancing on to regionals.
