Eastern Hills’ area round matchup with Van Alstyne is set for Friday, Feb. 23 at Carrollton ISD’s R.L. Turner High School. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. and the winner of this game will advance to face the winner of Anna and Kennedale in the regional quarterfinal round early next week. Van Alstyne eliminated North Hills Prep 81-32 in the bi-district round. The regional final is set for Friday, Mar. 1 and Saturday, Mar. 2 in Commerce, Texas.

Dunbar had a great season and ended Thursday night as bi-district champions! Paschal, Arlington Heights, Southwest, O.D. Wyatt, and Western Hills also all made the playoffs. Again, Fort Worth ISD is making its presence known in the UIL boys basketball playoffs!

Fort Worth ISD also congratulates the Dunbar Lady Wildcats on a fantastic season and thrilling playoff run! Dunbar won a fourth consecutive district title and extended its district winning streak over 40 games, won a bi-district championship with a 66-40 win over Ferris, and won an area championship with a 44-40 win over Van Alstyne! The playoff run ended in the regional quarterfinal against Frisco Panther Creek, but FWISD is proud of the hard work and success of its Dunbar Lady Wildcats!
