HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL | State tournaments set

UPDATE: Winter weather has pushed back start of 5A state tournament as the other tournaments involving area teams — 7A, 4A — will stay on schedule.

The other state tournaments were all scheduled to start on Tuesday, but 7A and 4A were set to start on Wednesday keeping them on schedule.

“The decision was based on a safety issue,” said AAA executive director Lance Taylor in a release. “We wanted to make sure that everyone could travel to our state locations without hazardous driving conditions. The weather conditions are not favorable to travel on Tuesday, and warmer temperatures are expected for the rest of the week.”

The starting times will remain the same for all state tournament games. Semifinals in 5A will be played on Sunday as a result.

The boys’ teams from Maumelle and Central Arkansas Christian won their respective regionals on Saturday night and enter this week’s Class 4A state tournament as No. 1 seeds.

As a result both teams have byes and won’t play until Thursday. The teams are paired on the same side of the bracket and could play on Saturday in the semifinals for the right to play for the state championship.

They aren’t the only No. 1 seeds though.

Jacksonville boys and North Little Rock boys are also flying high and enter the Class 5A and Class 7A state tournaments respectively as the prohibitive favorites to each defend their respective state championships.

Alma is hosting the 5A tournament and Jacksonville will now play on Thursday because of Sunday’s snow and ice. North Little Rock has a bye and also plays on Thursday in the 7A tournament in Conway.

On the girls’ side, CAC is a No. 2 seed in 4A and also has a bye in the first round. North Little Rock is a No. 3 seed and will play in the first round at Conway. Jacksonville looks to defend its 5A girls state championship as a No. 3 seed and will play on Wednesday.
