Who’s still alive in the state basketball high school playoffs?


In the second round of the state playoffs several teams from the area ended their season on Wednesday. The Hoggard boys lost by 39 points to Terry Sanford in Fayetteville. Terry Sanford is currently ranked #1 in the state on the 4A level. News Channel 3 Sports had highlights from this game Wednesday night along with highlights from the West Bladen boys game. West held a 17 point lead at halftime against Bertie, but Bertie made a second half comeback to win by 3.
