Two area players have been named finalists for the TSSAA's Mr. and Miss Basketball awards.

Despite missing the start of the season with an injury, Baylor's Reggie Upshaw, a Middle Tennessee State University signee, is a finalist for the Division II-AA Mr. Basketball award and McMinn Central's Elizabeth Masengil is a finalist for the Class AA Miss Basketball award. Masengil, a UT-Martin signee, won the award last year.

The presentation for the awards will be given during each respective state tournament. The D-II awards will be given Saturday, March 2, at David Lipscomb University's Allen Arena and the Miss Basketball awards will be held March 9 at MTSU's Murphy Center.
