This week’s historic freeze throughout the area put a chilly pause on the state boys’ and girls’ high school basketball playoffs, as the boys were scheduled to begin play-in games before starting the bi-district round, while the girls’ were slated to play area and regional quarterfinal games.
The road back began on Friday evening when Friendswood hosted Angleton in a 5A, Region III girls’ basketball area round game. The schedule picked up on Saturday, as Dickinson played Summer Creek and state-ranked Clear Springs collided with Atascocita in 6A, Region III girls’ basketball area round contests at La Porte High School. Clear Creek’s girls team was also in action on Saturday when they played West Brook in a 6A, Region III game at C.E. King High School.
State-ranked Hitchcock returned to action on Saturday when they played Huntington in a 3A, Region III girls’ basketball area round game at Grand Oaks High School.
