Local basketball teams compete in four playoff games on Tuesday night

With plenty of high school state playoff basketball games on the schedule Tuesday night, keeping the 2021-22 season alive hinges on those results for local clubs.

22-6A district champion Dobie, owner of a 12-0 mark that earned them this title, will take on CE King at Lee College in Baytown for a whistleblower at 6 p.m.

This is the second straight year the District 22 champion will face the District 21-6A Panthers for the bi-district title. This means King has collected the fourth and final ticket to the playoffs for his district, should they play the champ again.

Last winter, Pasadena came up against CE King and the Eagles walked away with the bi-district crown, thanks to a comeback effort.

The Longhorns have an athletic roster, an ingredient that Longhorn fans will hopefully carry them well beyond tonight. But as the Eagles discovered last year, King is unlikely to be left out as they will have athletes as well.

At Channelview High School, Pasadena Memorial will oppose Summer Creek in a 7 p.m. whistleblower. The Mavs, owners of the No. 2 spot in the district with an 8-4 record, will have their hands full against 21-6A third-place recipient Summer Creek.

As evidenced by the number of times Memorial scored in the 70s during the district, they will have the weapons to keep up with the Bulldogs, who will bring their fair share of outside threats and inside presence. Limiting Summer Creek’s looks on the basket will be crucial.

But the Bulldogs will have their own concerns about keeping the Mavs under an even eye, as Memorial’s roster includes the 6-foot-8 Robert Miller.

District 22 has already lost a team to playoff opponents District 21 when state-ranked Atascocita defeated Deer Park 82-37 on Monday night.

In the Texas Association of Private and Parish Schools State Playoffs, both Pasadena-First Baptist Christian Academy teams will attempt to keep their respective seasons alive.

The Lady Warriors will take on Cypress Christian at the neutral Emery-Weiner High School site here in Houston for a 6 p.m. tip-off.

The men’s team, fresh off a 62-38 two-district win over San Anonio Holy Cross last Friday, will face state-ranked John Paul II of Schertz at Byron Steele High School in Cibolo, located just outside east of San Antonio. Tipoff for this contest is 5 p.m.
