Basketball postseason begins next week
We’ve reached the postseason for basketball, and the division tournaments will start next Tuesday.
Playing at Okolona, North Pontotoc and Ingomar, area teams will play for a spot in the north half tournament.
East Union boys enter the division tournament at Okolona with a 2-3 record. Going based on the rankings from Max Preps, that has the Urchins in fourth. The Lady Urchins have seen much improvement this season and will enter the tournament with the hopes of advancing to north half; a feat they are capable of accomplishing.
New Albany girls enter the Region 2-4A tournament as the top seed, while the Bulldogs will be second. The Lady Bulldogs will look to keep its undefeated division mark in tact, and for the Bulldogs, they will take on the Senatobia-Lewisburg winner next Thursday.
The Region 2-1A tournament will be at Ingomar, and for the Falcons, they enter having only lost to Coldwater in division play.
On the girls side, all eyes are on H.W. Byers, who brings in a perfect division record to the tournament.
There will be a lot of exciting games taking place next week. Best of luck to all of the Union County schools in the tournament.
