Numerous Randolph County basketball teams were in action Tuesday night for the start of the state playoffs.
Girls’ teams from Eastern Randolph, Randleman, Southwestern Randolph and Uwharrie Charter Academy were winners. Boys’ teams from Asheboro, Eastern Randolph and Trinity advanced.
Second-round games are set for Thursday at the home courts of the higher-seeded teams. That means that both Eastern Randolph teams, along with Randleman’s girls and Asheboro’s boys will have home games.
