Tonight’s slate of basketball games closes out the boys regular season. It will also close out one this season’s most exciting district battle.
In 5-4A action, Guyer plays Fort Worth Brewer tonight with a shot at the school’s first ever district title. Denton plays on the road at Trophy Club Nelson.
All three teams have already clinched a playoff berth. The following should help clear things up.

OK everybody, let’s see a show of hands of who thought the Denton boys basketball team was going to finish the first half of District 5-4A play in third place. Second place?
Now keep those hands up if you had them tied for first place. Ahh, that’s what I figured.

Originally when I was mapping this thing out, the top three games of 2012 looked a little different. Then, I decided to call an audible when I was looking through the archives of the games I’ve been at this year.
When I thought about it a little more, I knew Ryan and Denton’s District 4-4A basketball game had to be ranked as the third best game of 2012.
