It's rare for a Monday to include high school basketball playoff games.
But this week will start off with postseason action for a few teams due to weather postponements.
Webster's Bill Allen Field House will host four Class 4A games, including a boys matchup between Central and Berryhill for a regional title at 8 p.m. Central has been off for three days since opening the regional with a victory over Cascia Hall on Thursday.
"We've got some momentum so I don't like the time off," Central coach Eli K. Brown III said.
However, Cascia Hall coach Brian Rahilly didn't mind a day of rest after a 47-45 victory over Oologah on Saturday. Cascia's boys play Webster in an elimination game at 3 p.m.
"It's not a bad thing at all," Rahilly said. "We'll be ready to go."
In girls games at Webster, Berryhill plays Webster in a losers bracket game at 1:30 p.m. and Oologah faces Cascia Hall for a regional title at 6:30 p.m.
In 3A, Verdigris and Kansas will meet in boys and girls regional title games at Muskogee while Tahlequah Sequoyah faces Henryetta in regional finals at Okmulgee.
The Oklahoma Seconday School Activities Association announced on Sunday the sites for this week's 6A and 5A area tournaments.
