MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two Tennessee high school basketball teams will be on national television tonight.

East High School of Memphis and Hamilton Heights of Chattanooga will face off on ESPN2 starting at 8 p.m.

The East High Mustangs are ranked second in the nation, according to MaxPreps.

They're led on the court by a man who could be the best Lawson brother yet. Chandler Lawson is just a sophomore, but he's already listed as one of the top recruits for 2019.

Also leading the Mustangs is Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year Alex Lomax and Head Coach Penny Hardaway.

East is also the defending Tennessee state champion.

Despite all the firepower, the game against Hamilton Heights will not be easy. That school has some top talent too. It's ranked fifth in the nation, according to MaxPreps.
