Shannon boys coach Cedric Brim said after last week’s 1-4A championship game loss to Corinth that he was banking on seeing the Warriors again this week.
Next week is here and it’s now win or go home.
If Shannon is to see Corinth, the Journal’s No. 1 team, again, it would be Saturday in Corinth for the finals of the Class 4A North State tournament.
Corinth has beaten No. 6 Shannon in two of three meetings this season, the loss coming at Shannon. Boys play Tuesday to try and advance to the Thursday through Saturday tournaments.
A couple more North brackets feature potential division title rematches. Biggersville and Blue Mountain in 1A and Aberdeen and Mooreville in 3A.
It’s not as simple as that though. Shannon could have to go through Amanada Elzy, Blue Mountain through Coldwater, Mooreville through Booneville or McClain and Aberdeen through Velma Jackson.
