BASKETBALL: Dawgs Likely to Host District; C/D Subdistricts Open Tonight

It won’t be made official by the NSAA until Tuesday, but it appears that the North Platte Bulldogs boys basketball team will be hosting a Class A district as one of the top seven teams in the class in the Wild Card standings. As of Sunday night the Dawgs sat sixth in Wild Card points. They would host a district that would bring Omaha North, Omaha Bryan and Papillion-La Vista South to the Dawghouse. First round play in the boys Class A districts begins on Saturday.

Boys basketball subdistrict play in the C and D classes begins tonight with the play-in games in subdistricts with five teams. The Maxwell Wildcats and Sutherland Sailors will face each other in the D1-11 subdistrict play-in game tonight at 7 PM at the McGahan Activities Center in North Platte. Sutherland, the fourth seed, won both regular season meetings against Maxwell. The winner of this one gets the unenviable task of facing unbeaten Paxton on Tuesday night.
