Get ready for the full force of the high school basketball playoffs, as the second round of the SCHSL postseason overlaps with the start of the SCISA state tournament on Friday and Saturday, and we’ll be tracking the action throughout the night with Lowco Hoops Live.
Three Lowco girls teams play second-round games on the road Friday, and another six launch their SCISA postseason journeys, and we’ll post the scores and brief recaps as soon as we get them. We’ll do it again Saturday with the two Lowco boys teams in the SCHSL second round and four opening the SCISA state tourney.
This is normally premium content for our Patreon supporters, but we’re opening it up to everyone for the playoffs. You can support LowcoSports with a monthly pledge here.
