Don't look now, but the boys basketball season is in its final stretch. We've got a total of three rounds of basketball left, starting with the Regional Finals then onto the State Semifinals and State Finals.
Like the football season, an assertive and collective effort has been made to get us to this point to be able to get through it all.
And like football, there are a number of opportunities for the DFW to claim championships from 6A all the way down to 1A. Interestingly enough, we've got an all 7-6A and an all 11-6A matchup, respectively; another in-district Regional Final from 12-5A; 8-5A has a representative left and it's not the typical Mansfield team; and Dallas ISD is showing strong still in 5A and 4A.

Eighteen DFW-area teams remain in the playoff hunt as the postseason draws to a close. You can see the entire scoreboard of the regional quarterfinals here, but there were quite a few noteworthy finishes.
Byron Nelson just got past North Crowley; Dallas Jesuit knocked off district foe Lake Highlands in the team's third meeting of the year; Mansfield Timberview used a technical foul to escape Fort Worth Wyatt; Argyle continued its roll.
The Regional Semifinals are set and we have those games below.
