It may have been a bad night for Sweetwaterâ€™s two varsity basketball teams here Tuesday against Wylie, but there was good news.
The Sweetwater girls (5-4, 19-14) can still advance to the playoffs by beating Big Spring (5-4, 17-15) this Friday in a District 4-3A tiebreaker to decide who will get the No. 3 playoff berth.
The Roscoe girls basketball team waited until the final game of the regular season to clinch a playoff spot out of District 13-A, Division II Tuesday. The Plowgirls punched their ticket with a 50-16 win over Loraine to finish second in district with a 7-3 record and join first-place Highland and third-place Westbrook as the three postseason representatives. Faith Boren paced Roscoeâ€™s win with 21 points.
Tonightâ€™s games against Wylie mark the final time Sweetwaterâ€™s basketball teams host a doubleheader at Mustang Gym, and it will also be the girls teamâ€™s last regular-season game.
While both teams will be facing long odds of beating Wylie â€” whose teams are a combined 16-0 in district play â€” 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.
Sweetwaterâ€™s sub-varsity basketball teams gained a split in their games Friday here against Snyder.
The JV girls were most dominant, beating Snyder 58-27 as they improved to 22-1 overall and 8-1 in district. Coming off its first loss of the season three days earlier at Monahans, Sweet-water roared out to a 24-2 lead after the first quarter and led 37-12 at halftime against Snyder.
