District 9-AA is in Region 5-AA. The other side of Region 5-AA is District 10-AA which is comprised of teams in Metro Nashville. The first round games in the region tournament will be played at the higher seed’s gym (#1 host #4, #2 hosts #3, etc) on Friday, Feb. 22 and Saturday, Feb. 23., then the semi-finals and finals for Region 5-AA beginning on Monday, Feb. 25. These games will be played at Greenbrier also, except in the unlikely case where District 10-AA swept all opening round games, which would mean the region semi-finals and finals would be played at Pearl-Cohn.
