Here’s a look at the top girls high school basketball teams in Middle Tennessee, as ranked by The Tennessean:
10. Upperman (27-2) — The District 8-AA regular-season champion Lady Bees, looking for their first state tournament appearance since 2008, have strung together 21 straight wins, and they haven’t lost in more than two months. Last week: No. 10. Streak: Won 21.
9. Stewarts Creek (20-5) — Despite dropping two of their final three regular-season games, the Lady Hawks, a No. 4 seed in this week’s 7-AAA tournament, certainly won’t be an easy out. Last week: No. 7. Streak: Lost 1.
8. East Nashville (23-2) — The District 10-AA regular-season champion Lady Eagles, who’ve strung together 17 straight wins, haven’t lost to a Class AA opponent all season. Last week: No. 9. Streak: Won 17.

6. Dickson County (23-3) — The 11-AAA regular-season champion Lady Cougars, led by senior Vanderbilt signee Lea Lea Carter, will face the winner of No. 6 Centennial and No. 3 Ravenwood in Friday’s district semifinals. Last week: No. 6. Streak: Won 7.
5. Oakland (19-5) — Blackman and Riverdale seem to have separated themselves in District 7-AAA, but, like Stewarts Creek, the third-place and defending Class AAA runner-up Lady Patriots should not be taken lightly this postseason. Last week: No. 5. Streak: Won 3.
4. Wilson Central (26-0) — The 9-AAA regular-season champion Lady Wildcats, led by Miss Basketball finalist and UT-Martin signee Kendall Spray (27.1 points per game), polished off the program’s undefeated regular season with Friday’s 51-43 win over rival Mt. Juliet. Last week: No. 4. Streak: Won 26.
