The 2019-2020 girls basketball season is in the books in Houston.
As we looked back on it, what a year it was. The headliner was Cypress Creek, which reached its second state tournament in the past three years. There were also great performances by Clear Springs, which reached the Regional Finals for the first time since 2017 and Shadow Creek, which made its first-ever Regional Final.
VYPE looked back on the year and has formed the 2019-2020 Girls Basketball Public School All-VYPE Team.
