Groundhog Day, and anything can happen. Puxatony Phil saw his shadow, so there’s six more weeks of Winter ahead. We’re hoping there’s six more weeks of hoops ahead for our Austin-area teams as we’re beginning to think about playoffs (and potential State Tournament runs). Check out the action happening under Friday Night Lights in the Austin-area!
Westwood (4-4) @ Stony Point (1-8)
Hendrickson (6-2) @ McNeil (4-6)
Cedar Ridge (4-5) @ Round Rock (5-3)
BYE: Pflugerville (6-3)
Story Lines: The Dragons can potentially take a share of the 13-6A lead with a win tonight. The Hawks face a Mavericks team with renewed confidence (3 game win streak), while the Panthers sit idle. The Warriors need a win tonight to stop a 3 skid, but must do it on the road against a Tigers team that is not as inefficient as their 1-8 district record would indicate.
Bowie (2-5) @ Akins (2-5)
Anderson (4-2) @ San Marcos (4-2)
BYE: Manor (3-4), Del Valle (5-2)
Story Lines: Either the Trojans or Rattlers will walk away tonight with sole possession of 14-6A’s top seed. Tonight marks a must-win situation for both the Bulldogs and Eagles, as both programs are scrapping for the fourth and final playoff spot.
Vandegrift (5-4) @ Vista Ridge (3-5)
Hays (2-7) @ Leander (3-5)
Lake Travis (6-2) v. Lehman (2-7)
BYE: Westlake (9-0)
Story Lines: Now that the “Battle of the Lakes” is behind us, we can solely focus on this monster district’s stretch run. The Vipers can do a great deal of good with a win tonight, but the Rangers are planning on an unpset on their home floor. The Rebels have not helped their case with their recent skid – but hope is not lost if they can score the season sweep of the Lions tonight.
Connally (9-2) @ Rouse (12-0)
Georgetown (6-7) @ Cedar Park (10-3)
Hutto (8-4) @ East View (3-9)
Story Lines: Easily our area Game of The Week, Rouse can step closer to locking up the district by beating the only team threatening their crown (Cougars). Georgetown playoff hopes hinges on the Patriots performance versus the Hippos, and their own road luck versus the Timberwolves.
Travis High (0-9) @ LBJ (6-2)
Crockett (2-6) @ Reagan (6-3)
McCallum (4-4) @ Lanier (8-1)
BYE: Austin High (4-5)
Story Lines: The Knights not only have the opportunity to better their district seed, but to prove they can beat anyone in the district. It will not be easy on the Vikings home court. The Cougars certainly have more talent than their 2-6 record indicates, and they can go a long way proving that if able to defeat a talented Raiders squad at Raider gym.
