GRAPELAND – While the regular football season is drawing to a close, and the volleyball postseason is set to begin next week, another sport is about to tip-off its season.

That sport is basketball and with the way several area teams finished last year’s hoops action, big things are expected this season.  

With the release of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC) preseason rankings, it appears other people around the state are also expecting big things from the East Texas area.

And why not? The Sandies came within a bad charging call in the last 15 seconds of the Class 2A Championship Game of being referred to as the defending Class 2A State Champs. Crockett made an unexpected deep run in the playoffs last year and the Lovelady Lady Lions are a definite dark horse this season.
