S’water hosts final DH

February 5, 2013

Tonight’s games against Wylie mark the final time Sweetwater’s basketball teams host a doubleheader at Mustang Gym, and it will also be the girls team’s last regular-season game.
While both teams will be facing long odds of beating Wylie — whose teams are a combined 16-0 in district play — each has shown im-provement over last season and the girls still have a shot at making the playoffs.
Sweetwater and Big Spring are 5-4 this season in District 4-3A and are locked in a third-place tie, and each has won against the other in district play.

Nail-biter

February 4, 2013

Since their 65-49 victory at Snyder on Jan. 15, the Sweetwater boys basketball team has had trouble not only winning games — the Mustangs had lost four in a row coming into Friday’s rematch — but also putting the ball in the basket.
Even though Sweetwater ended its losing skid against Snyder with a 46-44 win, those troubles continued at Mustang Gym against the Tigers, who’ve won just four of 25 games this season.
Sweetwater led 9-0 before Snyder got on the board, and enjoyed a 13-5 lead in the first minute of the sec-ond quarter.
