With a win on Monday night over B.B. Comer, Dadeville earned the opportunity to host the area tournament over Beulah. The Bobcats finished the regular season with a 4-2 record in area play. Beulah will be the second seed in the tournament, facing B.B. Comer in the first round.
The Bobcats are in a coin flip with B.B. Comer to see who will be awarded the third seed on Wednesday after both schools finished area play with 3-3 records. If Beulah wins the coin flip, the Bobcats will face Randolph County in the first round of the area tournament. In the event that Beulah loses the coin flip, the Bobcats will face tournament host Dadeville. In the regular season, Beulah defeated every area team, except for Dadeville, at least once.
LaFayette, 2A Area 9
The Bulldogs finished the regular season with a 6-0 record in area play after defeating Horseshoe Bend 56-51 on Monday, putting LaFayette in position to host its first area tournament in a decade. The Bulldogs will host Woodland on Feb. 5 to open the tournament.
The LaFayette boys are also hosting the area tournament after breezing through area play in the regular season. The Bulldogs open up tournament play against Woodland on Feb. 5.
Lanett, 1A Area 6
The Panthers are hosting the area tournament after finishing 5-1 during the regular season. Lanett plays Wadley to open up the tournament on Feb. 4.
The Lanett boys are also hosting the area tournament after finishing the regular season undefeated in area play. The Panthers are hosting Loachapoka on Feb. 5 to tipoff their postseason.
Valley, 5A Area 4
If the Rams win on Wednesday at Brewbaker Tech, then the two schools will have a coin flip for who hosts the area tournament. Valley is currently 4-1 in area play. The Rams lost to Brewbaker 59-33 on Jan. 15.
The Valley boys basketball team’s scenario is simpler than the girls team. The Rams and Brewbaker Tech are both 3-2 in the area heading into their matchup on Wednesday. The winner of the game will host the tournament. Valley defeated Brewbaker Tech 60-57 on Jan. 15.
