Time flies. Entering the final night of district play for boys basketball, and we’re in our feels. Go out and support your favorite programs! Here are your Tuesday evening options.
Pflugerville (7-4) @ Hendrickson (8-3)
Round Rock (6-5) @ McNeil (6-5)
Cedar Ridge (4-7) @ Westwood (6-5)
Story Line: Battle of the Ville for the 13-6A crown. Winner of the Mavericks/Dragons moves on to postseason. Warriors and Raiders would love to mimic their girl team counterparts with a bi-district dub, but that will only happen for one.
Bowie (5-5) @ Manor (3-7)
San Marcos (4-5) @ Del Valle (7-3)
Akins (4-6) @ Anderson (6-3)
Story Line: Anything goes tonight, as all six teams have a shot at postseason play. ‘Nuff said. Monitor closely.
Vista Ridge (4-7) @ Westlake (11-0)
Vandegrift (7-4) @ Lake Travis (8-3)
Leander (4-7) @ Lehman (2-9)
Story Line: Because Leander owns the 2-0 head to head edge over Vista Ridge, the Lions have clinched the playoffs despite having similar district records. We’re still eyes-wide over the Rangers’ upset of Lake Travis last week. They play the role of ultimate spoiler tonight on the road at district-perfect Westlake.
Cedar Park (12-4) @ Elgin (7-8)
Rouse (14-1) @ Bastrop (1-11)
Cedar Creek (1-14) @ Hutto (9-6)
Georgetown (7-8) @ Connally (12-2)
Story Line: We aren’t crying….you are. Its been a long district season for 19-5A, with all of the playoff teams set more than a week ago. It will still be emotional, as five of our area teams’ seniors will play their final Varsity game tonight.
McCallum (4-7) @ Austin High (5-6)
Crockett (2-9) @ Travis (1-10)
Lanier (10-1) @ LBJ (9-2)
Story Line: The game of the night is obviously the Vikings versus Jaguars. Lanier can clinch an outright title with a victory, LBJ can nab a share of the district crown with a dub. Equally dramatic, McCallum and Austin High battle for the 4th and final playoff spot. The Knights beat the Maroons 48-38 in their January 19th meeting. Salute to our seniors on the Cougars and Rebels, playing their final Varsity basketball games tonight.
