Seven area boys high school basketball teams will be entering the state playoffs this week while one only team remains alive in the girls playoffs.

Boys teams from Quinlan Ford, Caddo Mills, Royse City, Rains, Commerce, Bland and Campbell are headed to the University Interscholastic League playoffs after qualifying with their finishes in district play.

The 20-10 Greenville Christian School Lady Eagles have advanced to the area round in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools’ Class 2A playoffs. GCS opened the playoffs with a 52-38 victory over Grand Prairie Shady Grove on Saturday. GCS is ranked 18th among the state’s small private schools by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. GCS will play Waco Texas Christian on Tuesday night in Avalon.

Quinlan Ford and Caddo Mills have both earned first-round byes. Ford, which won the 11-3A title, awaits the winner of Tuesday night’s bi-district battle between Royse City and Dallas Madison. That game is set for a 7 p.m. start at North Mesquite. Royse City finished third in 9-3A and Madison wound up second in 10-3A.

Caddo Mills beat Edgewood 73-65 in a district playoff game on Friday night to claim the top seed in District 17-2A. The 26-2 Foxes will face the winner of the bi-district battle between Troup and San Augustine.

Rains, which wound up second in 11-3A, will open the playoffs against third-place finisher Kaufman from 12-3A at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Quinlan Ford.

Commerce, third in 11-3A, opens the playoffs at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Naaman Forest in Garland against 12-2A runner-up Kemp.

Bland, the runner-up in 18-A to Trenton, opens the playoffs at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Howe against No. 6 state-ranked Lindsay.

Campbell, second to North Hopkins in 19-A, will face No. 8 state-ranked Rivercrest in a bi-district playoff game at 7 tonight in Sulphur Springs.

“I think they’re deserving of what they’re ranked,” said Campbell coach Gary Felmet. “We’ll go over there and do the best we can.”

Felmet said Rivercrest has good size at 6-6, 6-4 and 6-2.

“They shoot it well,” he said. “They do everything well.”

Campbell, which is 15-10 for the season, tuned up for the playoffs by beating Commerce 62-54 on Friday night in a warmup game. Justin Burden, a 6-2 junior, fired in 24 points to lead the Indians and Kelsey Grammer added 17. Burden averages 20.2 points and 10.1 rebounds and the 5-8 Grammer averages 15.3 points.
