Area Prep teams jockey for district titles and playoff positions

It seems like the prep basketball season just began. Actually, for some area schools the season, that actually is the case due to COVID-19 safety protocol that forced many games to be postponed or cancelled. Then there are the schools that were going right along only to have the season come to a screeching halt and those who have been forced to play with only a skeleton of what their team was supposed to be or could have been. 

Never before has so many games been cancelled or postponed on such short notices. Never before has a coach had to make so many adjustments to the schedule, game plans and lineups on the fly. Put yourself in their shoes for a minute. Can you imagine waking up thinking you are playing a certain school and ending up actually leading your team into battle against someone entirely different with no time to strategize? You gotta give them their props. What they have done is simply remarkable given the circumstances that were dealt. They have more than earned their money.  

There is now just two weeks left in the regular season with many crucial and important games yet to be played as teams jockey for position in their respective districts and try to improve their potential seedings for the upcoming playoffs.

See below for the schedule of game to be played from January 27th-February 3rd along with district standings, overall records and state rankings of every area team (shown in bold) in the newly expanded Jackson Parish Journal Sports coverage area as of this past Monday.
