It’s another Friday night of high school basketball and certain teams are in a do or die situation if they are planning for the playoffs.  Lets take a look at district standing and playoff possibilities.

Here are the district standings in Girls and Boys District 2-4A

GIRLS DIST. 2-4A DIST. RECORD BOYS DIST. 2-4A DIST. RECORD
DENVER CITY 7-1 ESTACADO 6-0
LEVELLAND 7-1 SEMINOLE 5-1
SEMINOLE 4-4 LEVELLAND 4-2
ESTACADO 4-4 LAMESA 2-4
LAMESA 2-6 BROWNFIELD 1-5
BROWNFIELD 0-8 DENVER CITY 0-6

 

Denver City Fillies have already clinched a playoff birth as well as Levelland. Both teams cannot do no worse than three district losses. Unfortunately the Brownfield Lady Cubs do not have a mathematically chance to get into the playoffs. Now, if  Denver City and Levelland both win out the last two games, they will have a seeding game to determine first and second. If they both drop one game, they are still tied for first and even if they both drop the last two games, they will still be tied for first. If one of them loses one or two and the other wins out they will be the district champion.

Now on to the boys District 2-4A. Denver City would have to completely win out the rest of their schedule in order to have chance at the playoffs. Brownfield’s chances are bit better. If the Cubs win out, they are in. If the Cubs win three of the four left, there is possibly a tie for fourth or get the fourth seed. Now if Brownfield wins two of the last four games, specifically Lamesa and Denver City and Lamesa loses all four of their last games, then Brownfield will be the forth seed. If Lamesa wins just one other game, but loses to Brownfield then they both will be tied for fourth and a seeding game will have to take place to see who gets that coveted fourth place spot and a trip to the playoffs.

Here are the district standings for girls and boys District 5-2A.

GIRLS DIST. 5-2A BOYS DIST. 5-2A
SUNDOWN 8-0 SUNDOWN 5-1
TAHOKA 4-4 MORTON 4-2
MORTON 4-4 SMYER 4-2
SEAGRAVES 4-4 TAHOKA 2-4
PLAINS 2-6 PLAINS 2-4
SMYER 2-6 SEAGRAVES 1-5

In this district, middle of the pack on both girls and boys is a hot mess. The Sundown girls are the only team with a playoff birth and district title. Its the other five that need to break away. Here we go! With a Morton loss to Sundown and Tahoka win over Seagraves tonight, then Tahoka will be riding in second place and that would be vice-versa with Seagraves as well. This would make Seagraves and Morton tied for fourth. If Seagraves wins tonight over Tahoka, they would be sitting in second place. If either Seagraves or Tahoka win tonight and if Morton upsets Sundown, then there will be a two way tie for second and the forth place would go to whoever lost in the Seagraves/Tahoka game. Now lets jump to next Tuesday. If Tahoka comes in that night with a 5-4 record and beats Smyer, then they are the second place team and seed. If they lose to Smyer they become 5-5 and are still in the playoffs. The same night that Seagraves and Morton come in with a 4-5 record and they both lose they will be 4-6 and  if Plains wins out their last two games then there will be three way tie for third and fourth.  We will see what happens.

On the boys side Sundown, Morton and Smyer have control of the district. Plains, Tahoka and Seagraves will need some help and some wins. I’ll come back next week with their playoff scenario.

Here are the girls and boys standings for District 6-1A

GIRLS DIST. 6-1A BOYS DIST. 6-1A
ROPES 8-0 NEW HOME 7-0
NEW HOME 6-2 ROPES 5-2
WELLMAN-UNION 4-3 MEADOW 4-3
MEADOW 4-4 WELLMAN-UNION 3-4
WILSON 1-6 WILSON 1-6
SOUTHLAND 0-8 SOUTHLAND 0-7

This might be a bit easier than our 2A counterpart. First of all, lets give the Ropes Lady Eagles a congratulations for winning the District 6-1A Title. The Lady Eagles will have an opportunity to go 29-0 in regular season. Their last district game before playoffs begin will be at home against the Wellman-Union Lady Cats. Now for the rest of the district, the New Home Lady Leopards will take the runner-up crown unless there is a huge upset from Wilson or Meadow. Now tonights game between the Meadow Lady Broncos and Lady Cats will determine who stays in third place and a chance at the playoffs. If Wellman-Union wins they become 5-3 and Meadow 4-5. Meadow would then need to win against New Home on their last district game and Wellman-Union would need to lose the makeup game against Wilson and district finally to Ropes in order for Meadow to play a seeding game for the third and final playoff spot. If Wellman-Union loses tonight to Meadow, beats Wilson and loses to Ropes, they will then be tied up with Meadow and will need the seeding game. Wellman-Union can win tonight and beat Wilson, but lose to Ropes, they will be the third place team and going to the playoffs.

In the boy side of District 6-1A, New Home has the upper edge. They are sitting at 7-0 in first place. Meadow stuck a thorn in the side of the district by upsetting Ropes on the road. Ropes is now 5-2, Meadow 4-3 and Wellman-Union 3-4. Tonights game between Meadow and Wellman-Union will be huge if the Wildcats can upset the Broncos at Meadow. This will allow Wellman-Union to stay in playoff contention. Of course Wellman-Union will have to also upset Ropes on the road and beat Southland in the last district game. If Wellman-Union can do this and Meadow and Ropes both lose to New Home then Wellman-Union will be at 6-4 possibly tied with Ropes for second place. A seeding game will need to take place. If Ropes beats Southland and Meadow beats Wellman-Union tonight, but lose to New Home and Meadow beats Wilson, then Ropes and Meadow will tied for second and will have a seeding game. Then there is the scenario of Wellman-Union winning on the road tonight against Meadow, losing to Ropes next Tuesday and finishing off district by beating Southland they will be 5-5 and Meadow will have to lose to New Home and beat Wilson and become 5-5 and that will also cause a seeding game for the playoffs.
