We are in the midst of the MHSAA basketball playoffs, and in this episode Brad and Dalton take stock of things two rounds in.

Pontotoc’s boys used a big third quarter to knock off New Albany in the Class 4A second round last week (1:52), overcoming Isaiah Ball’s big night. In 3A, Xavier Virges picked a good time to break out of his scoring slump as Houston topped Amory (3:33).

On the girls side, Ripley got revenge by defeating Louisville (5:25), which beat the Lady Tigers in last year’s 4A title game. And reigning 3A champ Kossuth, despite missing two starters, went on the road and beat Houston (7:26).

The quarterfinals tip off Thursday at various sites, with Brad covering at ICC and Dalton traveling to Mississippi Valley State. Thursday’s 1A action at ICC includes several area teams (9:27), including Pine Grove-Hickory Flat girls and Pine Grove-Baldwyn boys. In Itta Bena, both New Site teams and both Calhoun City teams will play in 2A on Thursday (10:26). Other matchups to watch include Pontotoc-Ripley boys on Friday and Starkville-Olive Branch boys on Saturday.

The guys also discuss last week’s diamond previews. Tupelo is the preseason No. 1 baseball team thanks to a wealth of returning pitching (12:23). In softball, Houston starts at No. 1, boasting one of the top pitchers in the state in Paige Kilgore (14:27).

The guys also have a Shoutout (16:23), and they present Athletes of the Week (17:29).
