Bi-District Basketball

Playoff central: UIL boys basketball playoffs bi-district results

Humble defeats Nederland 45-44 Vype

Originally appeared on


HOUSTON  – We are officially rolling in the 2018 UIL Boys Basketball playoffs and what a first round it was.

There was a highlight, SportsCenter Top Play dunk by Klein Oak’s Tyler Hudson, there were first-ever playoff victories for programs like Shadow Creek, Tompkins and Foster. Then there were the teams we figured would get the first-round victories like defending champion Cy Falls.

Below VYPE has gathered up basketball scores from around the Houston area for Class 5A and Class 6A boys basketball in the bi-district round and showdowns for the area round.


College Park 71, North Mesquite 67

Rockwall-Heath 83, Oak Ridge 54

Dekaney 61, Spring Woods 50

Klein Forest 63, Westfield 62

The Woodlands 56, Longview 43

Klein Oak 80, Spring 72

Eisenhower 71, Memorial 60


College Park vs Dallas Jesuit – TBA

College Park’s Q Grimes (Kansas-commit), who is coming off a triple-double performance (14 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) will have their hands full against Dallas Jesuit, who has a balanced attack. Blakemore and Scott must come up big to help the Cavs advance. It won’t be enough as Dallas Jesuit advances.

Dekaney vs Westwood – Friday at 6 p.m. at Brenham

The Wildcats are nice. The Peavy brothers and Epps are talented and just do the little things right. Dekaney didn’t play tremendous against Spring Woods but will advance to the regional tourney.

Klein Forest vs McNeil – TBA 

It’s hard to say about this game. Klein Forest struggled against rival Westfield. If the Eagles are hot for the three-point line, they are tough to beat. But they have to be hot. VYPE forecasts the Eagles to get by McNeil.

The Woodlands vs Pearce – Friday at 8 p.m. at Fairfield HS

This is a game of differing styles. The Highlanders do it with guards Wilbert, Carter and Stubbs. TWHS stretches the court with great three-point range and pushes the ball up court. Pearce leans of 6-foot-11 post Drew Timme, who has offers from the likes of Baylor and Purdue to Gonzaga and USC. So do guards or posts win games? VYPE says guard and The Woodands.

Klein Oak vs Pflugerville – Friday at 6 p.m. at Hearne HS

The Panthers of Klein Oak have enjoyed an historic season, winning a postseason game for the first time in 24 years. But can they get to the second round? The ride ends here as Pflugerville gets it done.

Eisenhower vs Hendrickson – TBA 

The Eagles soar as the Redus twins play. Can they do it against versus a tough Hendrickson squad? Ike pushes the ball and will outrun Hendrickson. 


Bush 69,  Seven Lakes 51

Lamar 58, Cy Creek 56

Tompkins 81, Ridge Point 59

Cy Springs 55, Westside 52

Clear Lake 70, Hastings 63

North Shore 56, South Houston 47

Dawson 65, Clear Springs 58

Deer Park 75, Goose Creek Memorial 65

Sam Houston 86, Cy Woods 62

Morton Ranch 64, Travis 62

Cypress Falls 70, Bellaire 54

Hightower 63, Strake Jesuit 56

Channelview 59, West Brook 46

Pearland 54, Clear Creek 49

Atascocita 80, Dobie 49

Alief Taylor 54, Dickinson 52 (OT)


Fort Bend Bush vs Lamar – Friday at 7:30 p.m.  at Don Coleman Colesium

Prediction: This is a great showdown between two really good basketball programs in the City of Houston. Expect this one to be a classic and Bush Broncos walk away with the win.

Tompkins vs Cypress Springs – Thursday at 7 p.m. at Cinco Ranch HS

Prediction: Tompkins is full of talent and finally it paid off in the playoffs with the program’s first-ever playoff victory. Now can they do it again? Cypress Springs is coming off a close win against Westside but won’t have enough to stop Slojund (Georgia Tech signee) and Bieniemy (Oklahoma signee). Tompkins wins again.

Clear Lake vs North Shore – Friday at 7 p.m. at Pearland HS

Prediction: Clear Lake’s Ajare Sanni and Riley Abercrombie’s scoring will be too much for North Shore to handle.

Dawson vs Deer Park – Friday at 7 p.m. at South Houston HS

Prediction: Deer Park is coming off its first playoff win since 2010. The Deer have  a lot of momentum coming into this one. Dawson had to hold off Clear Springs in a close one. Senior Tristan Ipke had 20 points and 14 rebounds for Deer Park in their win and will keep it rolling in Round 2. Deer win.

Sam Houston vs Morton Ranch – TBA

Prediction: Sam Houston is the team not a lot of people talk about. This is going to be a battle of guards and will be fun to watch. Kendric Davis (TCU signee) faces off against LJ Cryer. Cryer is on his way up as a sophomore and is about to get a lot of attention. Davis has the upperhand because of his experience and a better supporting cast. Sam Houston gets the dub.

Cypress Falls vs Fort Bend Hightower – Friday at 6 p.m. at Don Coleman Colesium

Prediction: Cypress Falls has too much firepower as the defending Class 6A State Champs. Nigel Hawkins, the 2017 VYPE Boys Basketball Player of the Year, led the way with 23 points and 11 rebounds in the win against Bellaire. Trejan Wesley had 17 points and Andrew Nguyen had 13 points. This is too much to stop. Cy Falls wins big again.

Channelview vs Pearland – Friday at 7 p.m. at Deer Park HS

Prediction: Channelview shocked the Class 6A world on Tuesday. The Falcons upset the District 22-6A Champions Beaumont Westbrook. Westbrook was 14-0 in District 22-6A and had only lost three games all season long. Channelview the play-in No. 4 seed from 21-6A upsets them and beats them by 13. Pearland beat Clear Creek to get to the second round. Javonne Lowery and Ovidio Perez will be too much to handle though for Channelview as the duo averages double digits per game.

Atascocita vs Alief Taylor – Friday at 8 p.m. at Phillips Field House

Prediction: Alief Taylor is coming off a big win against District 24-6A Champion Dickinson in overtime. Their runs ends against a very deep Atascocita team. Multiple times this season David Martinez has praised the play of his bench. This is what will carry the Eagles to yet another playoff win.

Madison vs Manvel

Crosby vs Ozen

Madison vs Beaumont Ozen – Friday at 7 p.m. at Baytown Sterling HS

Prediction: Beaumont Ozen is a basketball power and will roll past Madison

FB Elkins vs Beaumont Central – Friday at 7 p.m. at Goose Creek Memorial HS

Prediction: Donovan Williams is coming off a big 22 point, 6 rebound game for Elkins but he won’t be enough to get Elkins past Central.

Magnolia vs Whitehouse – Friday at 7 p.m. at Crockett HS

Prediction: Jackson Moffatt is having a wild season. The senior scored 32 points in the Bulldogs’ first round victory, behind him was Evan Palmquist with 17 points. Magnolia rides Moffatt and Palmquist to the Regional Quarters.

Port Arthur Memorial vs Shadow Creek – Friday at 7 p.m. at La Porte HS

Prediction: Shadow Creek has been here all season and we’ve been waiting for them to hit the playoffs. The Sharks have done that and are still rolling.

Humble vs Texas City – Friday at 7 p.m. at Phillips Field House

Prediction: Humble keeps the good times rolling and moves on

The media has mixed feelings about the James Harden trade. Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

James Harden was 100-percent exactly right earlier this week when he said the Houston Rockets were "just not good enough."

How could they be? Not when their moody superstar scorer, who makes about half a million dollars per game, shows up chubby, looking like a kielbasa about to explode in the microwave. Hey, some people eat when they're unhappy, it's a defense mechanism. In Harden's case, the only defense he's exhibited this season. At least he had a good excuse for missing pre-season training camp and alienating his teammates - he was busy partying with Cinnamon and Cherish in Atlanta and Vegas without a mask. Worst of all, he went into the tank his last four games in a Rockets uniform, standing around, arms folded, scoring fewer than 20 points each time, all Rockets losses. Fans in the front row were asking him to move, he was blocking their view of players who cared about winning. James Harden sabotaged his own team, a team that offered him $50 million a year to stay. Something that crazy could only happen in professional sports these days.

There's a saying that drives the American labor movement: "a fair day's wage for a fair day's work." It's the motto of the American Federation of Labor. The National Basketball Players Association is not a member. Harden's sulking on the court, cheating the Rockets and their fans, was unforgivable.

Harden, sitting out games while somehow being on the court, forced the Rockets to trade him - and quick - to Brooklyn. The trade, when you ignore the fine print and unindicted co-conspirators Cleveland and Indiana, sent Harden to Brooklyn in exchange for Caris LeVert (immediately flipped for Victor Oladipo), Jarrett Allen, three first-round draft picks and four swapped first-rounders. It's true, when you trade a superstar, you never get back equal value. The other team wins.

If it makes Rockets fans feel any better, the media in New York already has problems with their new problem child. I should say newest problem child. Kyrie Irving plays for the Nets.

"They (the Nets) gave up everybody! There's nothing left now. I just want to cry, It's awful," weeped WFAN Radio talk host Evan Roberts. For those who don't subscribe to weekly Arbitron ratings reports, WFAN is the most powerful, top-rated sports talk station in the Apple.

"You're leading down the road of doom. Harden and Durant could be gone in a year and a half. I'm not convinced this gives them a better chance to win a title. I'm living a nightmare again. They better freaking win."

Circle March 3 on your Rockets schedule. That's when the Brooklyn Nets, with their Big 3 of Kevin Durant, James Harden and possibly Kyrie Irving visit Toyota Center. I hear talk radio salivating over the record jeers that will cascade over Harden's name, although I'm not buying it. Fans don't think like the media does. I'm thinking that Rockets fans will welcome Harden back - one night only - with cheers.

Toyota Center public address announcer Matt Thomas: "Usually when former Rockets come to town for the first time since leaving, I give them a positive introduction. It's up to the fans how to react."

James Harden spent eight seasons with the Rockets. He is a spectacular player who watched other NBA players engineer trades so they could compete for a title. Harden didn't think the Rockets were good enough, and he's right. So he wanted out. We've all been there, a job we didn't like for a company we didn't like, for a boss we didn't respect. Harden wanting to be traded is understandable. How he went about it was deplorable. He hurt his co-workers.

Houston will make Harden pay for his disrespectful departure. He has an upscale restaurant set to open here. The name of the steakhouse will be "13." Harden's business partners may want to change that number ... before the restaurant's telephone number is disconnected. There are plenty of other restaurants in Houston. Rich people who can afford steakhouse prices hold grudges.

Rockets fans searching for a silver lining say, "We got two decent players and a whole bunch of precious first-round picks" for a malcontent who would rather be anywhere (except maybe Sacramento) than Houston." Yes, a bunch of first-round picks does bode well for the future. Anywhere, except maybe Houston.

Houston's draft war room isn't the most successful operation in the NBA. Over the past decade prior to 2000, under the direction of general manager Daryl Morey, the Rockets made 16 draft picks. Not one of them is still in a Rockets uniform, many of them have sought employment outside of America, some outside of basketball. Among their first-round whiffs: Nikola Mirotic, Terrence Jones, Sam Dekker - all out of the league. Best of all, Royce White, who played three whole games in his NBA career and finished with a scoring average of 0.00 points per game.
