Friday morning, the UIL announced that the girls basketball state championships would be pushed back to March 10 and 11 in wake of Winter Storm Uri this past week that disrupted the playoff schedule.
In addition to the change in state championship change, the playoff schedule was adjusted as well. The boys state championship date remains the same as of right now (March 12-13).
Playoff games unable to be completed by Saturday, February 20 can be completed the week of February 22-27 before certifying results, certification deadlines have also been adjusted to meet that need. Rounds may also be completed on consecutive days, if necessary. The UIL acknowledged that some programs will need to complete up three rounds in the span of a week after the delays from this past week.
Pending mutual agreement by participating schools, up to four teams can meet at one location for multiple rounds.
“For example, four schools may mutually agree to play the regional semi-final games at one location followed by the regional final game on consecutive days,” the UIL’s update read.
