Boys basketball playoffs: Area has 12 teams advance to 2nd round
The first round of the boys high school basketball playoffs are in the books, with 12 area teams advancing after Thursday night.
The night’s biggest surprise — Providence bowing out in the opening round with a 63-61 loss to Gainesville P.K. Yonge. It marked just the second time in Stallions history that Providence has lost its playoff opener, and first since 2002. The Stallions lost to P.K. Yonge in the second round last year, 43-42.
Other notables included Impact Christian hitting the 100-point mark in a 100-23 blowout of Aucilla Christian and Christ’s Church edging Pensacola Christian 83-82 in Region 1-3A for the program’s first playoff victory.
