The schedule is set for the District 6-AA basketball tournament after coaches met on Tuesday to finalize those plans.
Tyner is seeded first among the boys while the Signal Mountain girls earned the top spot in their tournament. The Brainerd boys were the regular-season district champs, but will not be part of the post-season after their brawl with Austin East.
Play-in games will be played at higher seeds this week with semifinal action then going to Howard on Saturday. Consolation games are set for Monday with championships to be determined on Tuesday.

The top four teams will advance to the Region tournament, which will be held at Red Bank.
