For the first time in eight years, the Byron Nelson boys’ varsity basketball team has advanced to the third round of the UIL 6A state playoffs.

Last night, the Bobcats defeated Abilene by a score of 64-48 and claimed the 6A Region I Area championship.  By securing the win, Byron Nelson will now advance to the 6A Region I Quarterfinals where they will face North Crowley on Friday, Feb. 26.  Tip off will take place at 7 p.m. at Thomas Coliseum in Haltom City.

All tickets ($5 for adults, $3 for students) will be sold at the doors, which will open to the public beginning at 6 p.m.

Making the evening more memorable, Byron Nelson Head Coach Scott Curran tallied his 400th career victory, becoming the first coach in Byron Nelson program history to achieve such a milestone.
