4A district basketball playoffs start tonight

The basketball postseason has arrived once again, and as always, there are plenty of local squads involved. Unlike previous years, this year’s schedule has taken on an alternating format, with 4A and 3A games switching off every day next week. But the 4A slate kicks off Thursday night, and here’s the schedule for the local squads.


Bellarmine Prep @ Kentwood – 6 p.m. – Lions will have tough road to continue late-season run.

Emerald Ridge @ Stadium – 7 p.m. – Tigers beat Jaguars 43-40 earlier this season.

Tahoma @ Curtis – 7 p.m. – Vikings begin their quest to defend state title.


Auburn Riverside @ Bellarmine Prep – 7 p.m. – Lady Lions enter postseason on 11-game winning streak.

Curtis @ Kentwood – 7:45 p.m. – SPSL crossover matchup hard to predict.

Check back here later tonight for updates on the Stadium boys and Bellarmine Prep girls games.
