Ravenwood topped Centennial 66-48 on Thursday night to enter the second half of District 11-AAA play tied with Franklin for second in league play.

Brentwood, which reached the Class AAA boys basketball state tournament a year ago, leads 11-AAA halfway through district play.

Here are three key boys games entering the second half of league play.

Franklin at Ravenwood

When: Friday

Why: Franklin edged the Raptors 59-55 on Dec. 5 and a Rebels win gives them the tiebreaker if the two finished with the same league record. Franklin enters hot from the 3-point line, hitting 20 in a win over Spring Hill and 16 in a victory against Dickson County.

Centennial at Franklin

When: Feb. 2

Why: Franklin battled to a 72-67 win on Dec. 15 in their first meeting. With both teams fighting with Ravenwood for a top-two finish in District 11-AAA, the second meeting will help decide the top of the league standings.

Centennial at Brentwood

When: Feb. 9

Why: Centennial handed the Bruins a 58-57 defeat on Jan. 9 for the Bruins‘ lone league defeat. Centennial, which is fourth in league play, can help its own cause in climbing the league standings with a sweep of Brentwood.
