The transition to 6A basketball has been a smooth one for the Lufkin Lady Panthers as they finished in a first-place tie for the 12-6A title and won a coin toss to capture the top seed.
They will look to carry that momentum into the playoffs as they take on the John Tyler Lady Lions in Class 6A Region II Bi-District playoff action in Jacksonville on Monday night.
Lufkin finished the season with an 8-2 mark in district play. John Tyler finished the regular season with an 18-12 record and a district mark of 8-6.
Earlier this season, the Lady Panthers rolled to a 70-49 win over John Tyler in Tyler.
