Goodpasture (60) vs. Grace Christian (44)
Goodpasture is the PrepHoopsTN favorite in D2-A, with as many as three D1 players in the starting lineup, and recent Flagler-commit Jack Carter Jack Carter 6'6" | SG Goodpasture | 2023 State TN for good measure. Jayden Jones Jayden Jones 6'4" | SF Goodpasture | 2025 State TN is unstoppable in the open floor and point guard King Keary King Keary 6'2" | PG Goodpasture | 2025 State TN is so tough to keep out of the vulnerable areas. Isaiah West Isaiah West 6'3" | SG Goodpasture | 2023 State #216 Nation TN is a very patient attacker from either wing and in the last year he evolved into a more disciplined passer. Wednesday night Isaiah threw a two-handed chest pass 70 feet to a blazing Jayden Jones Jayden Jones 6'4" | SF Goodpasture | 2025 State TN . The best sophomore in the land caught the ball a half-step before he smashed it through the cylinder. Gorgeous play, unmatched athleticism.
Grace Christian operated most smoothly when they ran backdoor cuts into sharp dribble-hand off action out high. They lacked the physical advantage that they owned in their district tournament, as the hosting Cougars mitigated the impact of C.J. Tinnon and the other bruisers.
Isaiah West Isaiah West 6'3" | SG Goodpasture | 2023 State #216 Nation TN forced his way into the lane, and calmly executed an 8′ turn-around jumper. His patience in traffic really made a tough opportunity into an easy finish.
FINAL: 60-44 Goodpasture.
Columbia Academy (73) vs. Clarksville Academy (55)
Columbia Academy is both a fantastic offensive juggernaut as well as a wildly inconsistent defensive unit.

At the half, 43-31 Clarksville Academy comfortably lead.
FINAL: 73-55 Clarksville Academy
Webb School-Bell Buckle (67) vs. Friendship Christian (58)
Webb was unstoppable in their district tournament, though the league was not easily won in the regular season. Friendship Christian made the Feet look beatable for most of the thrilling regional quarterfinal matchup. The game was 55-54 Webb, after a beautiful three-pointer from the wing. Arnett Hayes Arnett Hayes 6'3" | PG Webb Bell-Buckle | 2025 State TN answered with a crafty slash. The sophomore star continues to play like a superstar. He finessed a turn-around floater seconds later. Just a special player with unending basketball confidence and acumen.
Jax Howard Jax Howard 5'11" | PG Webb-Bell Buckle | 2025 State TN again played well, evading traps and maintaining possession as Webb lead late. He is a capable “time-whittler” for a team that constantly needs to drain the clock to secure their wins.
