HOUSTON – Every Wednesday, Doug Brotherton and his team have a discussion on a topic at The Village School.

They call it Wisdom Wednesday.

The most recent discussion centered on Alabama high school star Maori Davenport and her situation.

"It led to a great team discussion," Brotherton said. "At the end, I asked the girls if they wanted to do something. They said, 'yes', and we have used this as an opportunity to teach our players how to respectfully use our platform, within athletics."

Davenport (Rutgers-commit) has been in national conversations on her being declared ineligible for her senior year by the Alabama High School Athletic Association over what has turned out to be an administrative error by USA Basketball.

The state volleyball playoffs start tonight as area powers prepare for bracket play with hopes of reaching the finals in Garland, Texas.

So, as we are known to do, VYPE is going to boil it down for the fans.

Let's start in Class 6A Region II.

The Woodlands, Klein, Bridgeland and College Park are the Houston headliners coming out of this bracket, however, the 'Kats, Bears and Cavs will have to battle it out in the bottom half of the bracket.

Klein will likely play Bridgeland in Round 2, which could be an epic match-up.

In Class 6A Region III, it's all about Ridge Point and Pearland Dawson, but they would face each other in the Regional Semis. Cinco Ranch could be a spoiler on the top part of the bracket.

The bottom half of the bracket is wide open. Seven Lakes? Cy-Fair? Or Deer Park, maybe?
