    Seven Loudoun teams to play for state tournament bids Thursday

    Seven varsity basketball teams from Loudoun are one win away from securing a spot in the Virginia AA state tournament. All seven squads will attempt to punch their ticket Thursday night in the Region II semifinal round.

    All region finalists advance to the state tournament - win or lose in the region championship. That makes Thursday's semifinal games vital as teams can advance to the region final and secure a spot in the state tourney with a victory or have their season conclude with a loss.

    Thursday's schedule features a showdown of Dulles District teams in Sterling as top-seeded Potomac Falls hosts Loudoun County in a Division 4 boys semifinal game. In the other semifinal, No. 6 seed Briar Woods is a home win against Millbrook away from a state bid.

    In Division 4 girls, top seed Woodgrove hosts defending state champion Millbrook, while Loudoun County travels to Stephens City to play Sherando.

    The Raiders will face former coach Kevin Reed, who is in his third season at Sherando. Reed guided Loudoun County to a 156-50 record in eight seasons, including the 2009 Virginia Division 4 state championship.

    A pair of Loudoun teams are still alive in the Region II Division 3 tournament. After surviving a tough challenge from Heritage in the quarterfinals, Loudoun Valley will host Monticello in the Division 3 boys semifinals.

    Heritage will go on the road once again Thursday to play at top seed Monticello in the girls semifinals.

    Division 4 Boys
    No. 4 Loudoun County at No. 1 Potomac Falls, 7
    No. 7 Millbrook at No. 6 Briar Woods, 7

    Division 4 Girls
    No. 4 Millbrook at No. 1 Woodgrove, 7
