With lopsided losses at Wylie last Friday followed by disappointing home defeats on Tuesday against Big Spring, the past week hasnâ€™t been a lot of fun for Sweetwaterâ€™s varsity basketball teams.
They likely will have to avoid a similar fate over the next two games in order to keep their playoff chances alive, but both games â€” starting today with contests at Midland Greenwood at 6:15 (girls) and 7:30 p.m. (boys) â€” will be on the road. Sweetwater also goes to Monahans on Tuesday before returning home next Friday to face Snyder.
