The Panola Fillies are confident going into the Region XIV Basketball Tournament in Tyler next week.  The Fillies have won 5 of their last 7 games, 4 of those games were on the road, and have secured at least the 6th seed in the Tournament Bracket with a chance to jump to the 5th spot with a Kilgore loss on Saturday.

On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the Fillies basketball team went into the last game of the year needing a win to secure the 6th seed in the Conference Tournament next week and that they did.  The Fillies beat the Lady Dragons 56-50 to secure the 6th place.  The Fillies also got unexpected help last night from Tyler Jr. College.  TJC, struggling this year and needing a win against 5th place Kilgore to stay mathematically eligible for the playoffs, beat Kilgore 58-56. This may allow the Fillies to jump another spot in the rankings to fifth place behind Trinity Valley, Blinn, Angelina, and Jacksonville if Kilgore loses to #3 Angelina on Saturday.

The Fillies who have a bye on Saturday, will now prepare for the Region XIV Basketball Championship Tournament hosted by UT-Tyler at the Patriot Center March 5-9.  Unofficially, if the Fillies finish 5th, they will play Jacksonville College at 3 p.m. on Wednesday March 6 in the first round of the tournament.  If Kilgore wins on Saturday, the Fillies will be in the #6 spot and will take on Angelina at 8 p.m. on March 6.
