The Knightdale boys basketball team is the only local team to make it through the first round of the Greater Neuse River 4-A Conference tournament this week.
The girls games began Monday and boys games began Tuesday.
Knightdale's girls fell in a 51-50 heartbreaker to Harnett Central after leading the majority of the game and by as many as 12 points.
East Wake's girls were upset 53-51 by Garner Monday in what Warrior coaches considered one of the team's most disappointing games of the season.
The East Wake boys also fell in round one, 50-36, to the Southeast Raleigh Bulldogs.
The Knights advance to Thursday night's semifinal game against the top-seeded Garner Trojans at Garner at 7:30 p.m.
