SW teams must beat Monahans to keep playoff hopes in 4-3A

January 29, 2013

Sweetwater at Monahans: Girls — 6:15 p.m., Boys — 7:30 p.m.

Sweetwater’s basketball teams may well have to win at Monahans today in order to hold on to any realistic hopes of a District 4-3A playoff berth.
That’s certainly true for the Sweetwater boys (1-4), who are two games behind Monahans (3-2), which is currently in third place.
But the Sweetwater girls (3-4) also need a win as they trail Big Spring (4-3) by a game for the No. 3 spot after losing three straight. They face a Monahans team that is 0-7, and Sweetwater probably has to win tonight and at home this Friday against 1-6 Snyder to have a realistic shot of getting to the playoffs.
Sweetwater must find a way to forget the last 1 1/2 weeks which has seen it lose to Wylie (66-28), Big Spring (41-40 in overtime) and Greenwood (45-27) after a 3-1 start. The boys have also lost their last three games against Wylie (76-25), Big Spring (49-39) and Green-wood (75-42), but they are facing a Monahans team that has lost two straight games to fall into third place after an impressive 3-0 start, and also fell out of the Class 3A state rankings this week.
In District 13-A, the 5-2 Roscoe girls will be trying to move a step closer to making the playoffs when they host Ira (4-3). Highland’s boys (3-2) play a key 13-A contest as well today as they host Loraine (1-4). Highland’s girls are in the playoffs for the 12th straight year.
