There are several things Sweetwater must do today vs. Big Spring in order to realize its dream of making the playoffs and ending a long drought, says Lady Mustang coach Al Miller.
â€śWe talked about having low turnovers and managing the game like weâ€™re supposed to. Not letting them have wide-open 3s. Taking care of the ball and giving them one shot on offense.â€ť
If Sweetwater had done a better job in just a couple of those areas the last time the teams played each other, todayâ€™s third-place district tiebreaker between two teams with 5-5 records wouldnâ€™t be necessary.
Though they donâ€™t start the playoffs until next week, the Highland and Roscoe girls basketball teams wonâ€™t be idle this weekend. Both have scheduled warmup games to prepare them for postseason play.
Highland (10-0 in District 13-A, 27-3) plays Valley at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Jay-ton after ending district with a 67-24 win over Hermleigh while Roscoe (7-3, 18-11) gets a tuneup at 5 p.m. today vs. Zephyr in Zephyr.
