The Bulldogs, in the playoffs for the third straight season, won again Friday night in Mount Pleasant, beating Paris, 59-47, in a Class 3A second-round playoff.

That gives area basketball fans the matchup they've been waiting for: Kilgore vs. Athens in the third round, which will happen Tuesday night at 7:30 at Tyler Junior College's Wagstaff Gymnasium.

Kilgore (24-7 on the season after the win over Paris) already has one playoff win at TJC: they beat Van, 59-27, there on Tuesday. Athens held off Pleasant Grove, 90-79, at Spring Hill on Friday night. Kilgore and Athens have at least one thing in common: both programs ran through their respective districts without a loss.

Coach Jeff Coleman and his Bulldogs came up big against a very good Paris team at Mount Pleasant on Friday.
