WOLFFORTH The Permian basketball team finally completed its regular season but it was not the result it had hoped for, losing 48-45 to Wolfforth Frenship in the District 2-6A finale Saturday at The Tiger Pit.

The game had been pushed back more than a week due to inclement weather conditions across the state.

Permian (18-5 overall, 10-2 district) had a chance to tie the game with a 3-pointer in the final seconds but was unable to convert. The Panthers will be the No. 2 seed out of District 2-6A for the playoffs.

Frenship (21-4, 12-0) clinched the outright district title and will play El Paso Franklin at 4:30 p.m. Monday in Fort Stockton. 

The Panthers will have a quick turnaround to begin the postseason as they will host El Paso Eastlake at 5 p.m. Monday at the Permian Fieldhouse in a Class 6A bi-district game.
