The postseason is officially underway in the Lone Star State! I had the opportunity to attend three 6A Region 1 playoff matchups. The Coppell Cowboys cruised to a 64-46 victory over the Allen Eagles on Saturday, the North Crowley Panthers won an overtime thriller vs. the Keller Central Chargers 50-45 on Monday, and the Lake Highlands Wildcats defeated the Arlington Lamar Vikings 61-51 on Tuesday.

Here are five standout guard prospects from the Bi-District round:

Ty’Rik Taylor | 2021 | 6’0’’ Combo Guard | North Crowley HS - Taylor provided the Panthers with a huge spark off the bench. The North Crowley senior is a tough-nosed scoring guard on offense and a steady perimeter defender at the other end.

Reid Hocker | 2022 | 5’10’’ Point Guard | Lake Highlands HS - Hocker operated as the sixth man for his team on Tuesday but ended up playing most of the contest as Lake Highland’s lead guard. He has a good feel for the game, plays with great pace, and consistently makes hustle
