It was an exciting weekend for Memorial High School basketball, as well as all of Frisco ISD, as the Warriors girls and boys teams made historic advances in the playoffs.
The Memorial girls basketball team is headed to the UIL state tournament for the first time after beating another FISD powerhouse, Liberty, on Saturday in the 5A Region II Championship game.
The Warriors took control in the fourth quarter to win 43-35
and earn a spot in the Class 5A state semifinals, which will be Thursday at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The Warriors (36-5), who are No. 3 in the 5A state rankings, will play four-time state champion Amarillo (32-5) in the semifinals. (Schedule
