2017 Girls Basketball Playoffs

Heartbreaker
SAN ANTONIO -- Mollie Daniel scored on a layup and all 6,781 in attendance at the Alamodome waited for the other shoe to drop.
Daniel's basket for Martin's Mill, which had not led since the first quarter, cut what was once a seven-point Panhandle lead at its worst down to one with 5:44 remaining Satu…
Maybe Next Year
SAN ANTONIO -- Woden learned Friday there's still a ways to go before it can claim its first girls basketball state championship. But it also got to see how much its first run past a regional tournament impacted the small community in Nacogdoches County as well as the alumni base that migrated elsew…
Martin's Mill Survives
SAN ANTONIO -- Martin's Mill reversed what had been an awful second half from the floor in the final five minutes and stole a 58-50 win from defending Class 2A state champion Weimar in the state semifinal round Friday at the Alamodome.
Briley Moon connected on two 3-point shots within 18 seconds of e…
Buffalo Stuns Mount Vernon
SAN ANTONIO -- It didn't matter that Mount Vernon had led by as many as 12 points. It didn't matter that Buffalo had only been up by one point leading up to crunch time in Thursday's Class 3A state semifinal game at the Alamodome.
What mattered was the contest was tied at the start of the fourth quar…

Fiesta Time
ROCKWALL -- Brad Floyd usually takes off a few days of work to catch the girls basketball state tournament games in Central Texas. This year, he'll do the deal in all-expenses-paid style.
Floyd's Mount Vernon team cruised to an easy 50-35 win Saturday against Winnsboro in the Class 3A Region II champ…
Argyle Finishes Off Bullard
COMMERCE -- The Bullard Lady Panthers did their best to hang with a much bigger and more experienced Argyle team, but simply ran out of gas.
Two-time defending state champion Argyle ground out a 36-24 victory over Bullard, Friday night in their Class 4A Region II semifinal at The Field House on …
Empty Handed
COMMERCE -- Appearing in its third consecutive regional tournament, the Gilmer Lady Buckeyes were hoping to finally break through and attain the ultimate goal of competing at state.
Carrollton Ranchview had other ideas.
The Lady Wolves took control with an 8-0 run in the fourth quarter to take out Gil…
End Of The Road
DALLAS -- John Tyler was not able to get a shot off from beyond mid-court and its season ended Friday at Ellis Davis Field House in the Class 6A Region II semifinal round, 66-63, to Spring Dekaney.
