Playoff updates coming soon...

With the regular basketball season scheduled to end Feb. 11, the boys are just a week behind the ladies in preparing for the playoffs. And just like the girls, six of the area’s seven teams will qualify for postseason play. Stockdale, unfortunately, will not advance.

East Central has had another good season, and the Hornets were sitting in the district’s top spot with one game remaining as of press time. Should the Hornets defeat the Corpus Christi King Mustangs, East Central will win the District 28-5A title and enter the playoffs as the No. 1 seed. If the Hornets were to come up short, and Steele were to defeat Southwest, East Central would finish in a tie with Steele and the teams would split the title.

In Class 4A, Floresville remains one game ahead of Harlandale and McCollum in District 29 with one game remaining. A Feb. 11 victory over Southside would give the Tigers the district championship, whereas a loss would open the door for one of the other teams to grab a share. While the final finishing order of the top four is unclear as of press time, it is a certainty that Floresville will see playoff action.

District 28-3A had a battle until the end, as La Vernia and Sam Houston squared off on Feb. 7. The Hurricanes held a one-game lead going into the game, and La Vernia had the ability to nab a slice of the championship pie with a victory. Unfortunately, the Hurricanes secured an 81-66 victory, giving Sam Houston the district title. La Vernia held clear control over the No. 2 spot, though, with Somerset three games back in third. The Bears will enter postseason play as the No. 2 seed.

As was the case for the girls, District 28-2A proved quite competitive for the boys. The complete picture remained uncertain as of press time, but it appeared as though Poth was a lock to make the playoffs, and Nixon-Smiley was right on the bubble. This year certainly would not be the first time teams had to play through the final game of the season to determine who makes the playoffs -- and it won’t be the last. Nixon-Smiley was fighting for position with Karnes City. The Badgers were scheduled to face Schulenburg Feb. 11, while the Mustangs were set to square off with Luling. A Nixon-Smiley win and Karnes City loss puts the Mustangs in the show. If both teams lose, they will play for the fourth and final spot.

In District 30-1A-I, the Beavers got a late start at basketball because of their extended football season, but Falls City made the most of its time on the hardwood and put together a very respectable season. The Beavers were hanging right at the top of the district standings in a tie with Kenedy, and should be a lock for one of the district’s three playoff positions. The Beavers were scheduled to close out the regular season at home Feb. 11 against Three Rivers.

Once all games have been played and the district standings have been verified, the playoff pairings will be posted on the Wilson County News website. As playoff information and results are available, they will be updated online.
