Watauga High Athletic Director Tom Wright has announced that Wednesday night's state playoff basketball game between the Pioneers and McDowell will start at 6 p.m. at Lentz-Eggers Gym.




Coverage begins at 5:40 p.m. on AM 1450, WATA and GoBlueridge.net. The winner of this game will play either the No.17 seed, Greensboro-Dudley (10-12), or the No.1 seed in the West, Greensboro-Page (24-2).


If the Pioneers win, and they play Dudley, WHS would be at home. But if they play Page, then the Pioneers would be on the road Friday night.
