Parkville Advances In MPSSAA Basketball Tournament

Of the three local high schools, one had a first-round bye, one advanced with a first-round win and one was knocked out of the region tournament.

Parkville has lived to fight another day in the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association girls basketball tournament.

Their local counterparts in Overlea weren't so lucky, upset by 10th-seeded Pikesville, 45-38, according to the MPSSAA website.

The No. 12 Parkville Knights, however, were on the giving end of an upset—dominating No. 5 Towson, 43-29. Parkville plays at No. 4 Digital Harbor this afternoon at 4 p.m., according to the MPSSAA website. A victory over the Baltimore City school will see the Knights take on the winner of a contest between No. 1 Aberdeen and No. 9 Franklin on Feb. 27.

No. 4 Loch Raven, which earned a bye in first-round play, will host No. 5 Edmonson/Westside this afternoon. A win will see the Raiders take on the winner of a game between top-seeded Randallstown and No. 9 Carver Vo-Tech Wednesday.

The boys portion of the tournament begins Tuesday.
