Tipoff begins at 6:15 p.m. with the girls game, where Sweetwater and Big Spring are both 2-3 in district. And the boys contest between Sweetwater and Big Spring at 7:30 p.m. pits teams that are 1-2 in district play.
On the girls side, Sweet-water and Big Spring are tied with Snyder, which plays at Wylie (5-0) tonight.

Sweetwater’s girls, who defeated Big Spring 44-40 in their district opener here back on Jan. 3, will be tipping off the second half of district play. They will host Greenwood (4-1) on Friday and Monahans (0-5) next Tuesday in their final home games before ending with road games at Snyder and Wylie. The boys also host Greenwood on Friday, then host 4-3A co-leader Mona-hans next Tuesday.
