In the first round of district play, Coach Stanford Hill Jr's Clarksville Blue Tigers held back the Rivercrest Rebels for a four point win in the Rivercrest gym. However, when the teams met for the second time on Tuesday night, and this time in the Clarksville gym, the story was very different, as the Blue Tigers cruised to an impressive 64-39 win. With the victory Clarksville remains in first place in the league standings with a 7-1 district record with games remaining against Maud and James Bowie.

Led by the play of freshman Romeo Minter, and senior Zion Banks, the Tigers now 15-10 overall, built a 12-2 lead when Banks scored off the break with 4:15 left in the opening period. Clarksville would then move on to an 18-9 advantage at the end of the first quarter. From that point on, the Tigers never really looked back. The lead grew to 39-17 at the intermission.
