Due to UIL realignment, tonight will mark the last time for at least two years that the Sweetwater girls basketball team plays a district game against Wylie.
The Lady Mustangs (4-5 district, 9-13 overall) — who will make the trip to Wylie (9-0, 24-5) for a 6:15 p.m. tipoff — just hope it won’t also be their final game of the season.
That won’t happen should Sweetwater upset Wylie, as it would guarantee a play-off berth. But a loss could create a tie with Big Spring and Snyder or, even worse, eliminate Sweetwater. The three teams will all go into tonight with 4-5 records as they try for the two remaining playoff spots from Dis-strict 4-3A. The two teams who are already in are Wylie and second-place Midland Greenwood (6-3), which is at Big Spring while Snyder goes to Monahans (0-9) tonight for what will be the final games of the 2014-15 regular season.
Tonight at 7:30 is also the last Sweetwater-Wylie boys district game in basketball for awhile. As usual, Wylie (7-0) will be heavily favored to defeat Sweetwater (2-5), which had lost four straight until Friday’s 44-27 win at last-place Snyder (0-7). With four teams ahead of them in the standings, the Mustangs may need to win two of their last three games to have any shot at grabbing a playoff spot in 4-3A.
