It turns out Highland Park’s girls basketball team ended up drawing one of the best teams in the state in the first round of the playoffs.
Frisco Wakeland, which beat the Lady Scots, 69-48, on Feb. 16, won its Class 4A state semifinal against Del Valle, 39-34, yesterday in Austin. The Lady Wolverines (30-6) will take on Mansfield Timberview (36-2) in an all-Dallas/Fort Worth state championship game at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow.
I’ll be honest, I was very impressed by Wakeland’s size and athleticism, but I came away from the game against HP thinking that team was way too undisciplined to make a serious run at a state title. Shows how much I know.
