By now, you have probably heard about all the chaos regarding the final seconds of last Saturday’s girls basketball 3A Region II girls final at Texas A&M-Commerce between Celina and Argyle
COMMERCE — I think we all saw this one coming.
In a few hours, Argyle and Celina will play for the third and final this season, with the winner headed to the Class 3A girls basketball state tournament.
Throughout the season, it was clear that District 10-3A was one of the strongest girls basketball districts in the state.
Because of the inclement weather that refuses to leave the area alone, Guyer-Wichita Falls boys basketball game scheduled for Friday night has been rescheduled, according to the Record-Chronicle’s Adam Boedeker.
The two teams will play at 3 p.m. on Saturday at Guyer in the final home game for the Wildcats.
The latest weekly installment of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches rankings was released today and two of the area’s top teams retained their lofty rankings.
Each year, there are a few games that make you forget about everything else that was going on before you took your spot in the bleachers. Among the vast amount of blowouts and lopsided wins, some of the area’s high schools gave us some great contests in 2013.
So from now until New Year’s Eve, I’ll bring you the top five games of the year. We’ll finish up with the game of the year on Dec. 31.
Today we’ll start with No. 5, Guyer and Denton’s boys basketball game in January.

In boys basketball, the Sanger tournament has been cancelled. The mix of sleet, snow and terrible road conditions have forced the cancellation of Saturday’s games. They were only able to get four games in on Thursday before the rest of the games were scrapped.
Georgetown East, Liberty Christian and Sherman all pulled out of the tournament completely on Thursday.
Ryan was scheduled to face Frisco, but that game won’t happen. Sanger head coach Rob Sikora said the Indians will now face Aubrey on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Sanger.
The amount of area teams left in the basketball postseason has trickled down to six, with five teams on the boys side and two on the girls side.
In Class 2A boys action, Ponder and Sunnyvale tipped off at 7 p.m., with the winner going on to face either Whitesboro or Peaster. But with the exception of that contest, there’s four very interesting contests going on tomorrow: a Denton-Guyer doubleheader, a rematch between Argyle and Dallas Wilmer-Hutchins, Krum girls in the 3A regional tournament and both Liberty teams in action.
Here’s a closer look at tomorrow night’s games.
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?
