A coin flip Monday morning has determined the outcome for the AHSAA 7A area boys basketball tournament.

Coaches from Central, Smiths Station and Auburn met to determine who will host the area tournament after each team finished 2-2 in the region following the regular season.

Auburn won the flip which means they will not just host the tournament, they have earned an automatic spot in the 7A Regionals held in Montgomery.

Smiths Station and Central will now play on February 9th in Auburn with the winner advancing to the Area Finals against Auburn on the 11th.  The winner of that game will earn the number one seed in the Regional Tournament while the loser will earn the two seed.Only two teams in the area tournament can advance to Regionals.
