SEMINOLE, Texas (KTSM) — The Ysleta boys basketball team survive and advance. The Indians pulling off an upset in the Area Round of the Texas high school basketball playoffs, 59-56, over No. 25 Randall in Seminole on Tuesday.
Jacob Gonzalez and Giovanni Rivera led Ysleta with 15 points apiece. Omar Ibarra added 14 points in the win.
The Indians advance to the Regional Quarterfinals where they will meet No. 19 Chapin later this week in a second all-El Paso Regional Quarterfinal in as many years. The Huskies advanced to the third round of the playoffs with their win over Plainview on Monday.
The Ysleta-Chapin Regional Quarterfinal game will likely be played on Friday night at Bel Air High School, however, no official announcement has been made. There is speculation the game could be played at the Don Haskins Center, much like what we saw in 2015 with Andress and Bel Air meeting in the Regional Quarterfinals. UTEP announced on Tuesday they have moved their series against Charlotte to Saturday-Sunday, meaning, ‘The Don’ is available on Friday night.
