Update to Boys Basketball Playoff Schedule
Continuing weather concerns and potentially hazardous travel conditions in several areas of the state have led UIL to provide for an extension of the certification deadline for the area round of the playoffs for boys basketball to Monday, March 2.
As a result the UIL will also allow for an extension of the boys basketball regional quarterfinal certification deadline to Wednesday, March 4. At this time, there are no plans to extend the regional quarterfinal round of the boys basketball playoffs beyond Wednesday.

As a result of continuing weather concerns and travel conditions in several areas of the state, UIL has issued the following information regarding the deadline for the area round of the playoffs for boys basketball and regional basketball tournaments for girls basketball.
Boys Basketball - The certification deadline is scheduled for Saturday, February 28th. Schools that are unable to complete the area round playoff game prior to this deadline should notify the UIL office immediately upon that decision being reached. There could be an option to extend the deadline for the area round boys basketball playoff deadline to Monday of next week. At this time, there would be no allowance for participation in an area round playoff game on Sunday.
Girls Basketball – The regional deadline is Saturday, February 28th. UIL has been in communication with impacted regional tournament directors and have indicated that there are several options available for completion of the regional tournament. Regional directors and school administrators have been advised to make decisions on game days and times based on what is safest for student athletes, coaches and fans traveling to the games. These options could include an allowance for game(s) to be played on Sunday if that becomes necessary.
