MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Bearden High School boys basketball team is just one win away from a state title after Friday's 76-60 win over Whitehaven in Murfreesboro.

With the win, the Bulldogs improved to 31-5 on the season and will play either Memphis East or Brentwood in the championship game.

If Memphis East wins, it will be a rematch from the semifinal last year between the two teams. Memphis East won that contest 72-60.

Bearden has been dominating at the state tournament, beating Franklin by 30, 76-46, in Thursday's quarterfinal, then beating Whitehaven by 16.
