In District 7-5A boys basketball, it was 'a war every single night'
District 7-5A is a brutal boys basketball district.
"It's a war every single night," Duncanville coach Kenny Boren said.
After a season of battles, the four playoff teams are DeSoto (13-1 in district), Duncanville (10-4), South Grand Prairie (10-4) and Cedar Hill (9-5). But the strength of the district goes beyond those four. To give you an idea of how tough the district was this season …
District champion DeSoto lost to South Grand Prairie, which lost to Cedar Hill, which lost twice to Duncanville, which lost twice to Grand Prairie, which did not make the playoffs. Grand Prairie was 7-7 and had two wins over Mansfield Timberview, which finished in sixth place in district (4-10). And in nondistrict play, Timberview beat Keller and Keller Fossil Ridge, the top two teams in 4-5A.
