Roscoe boys are hoping to prolong season

The girls regular season is over and the high school basketball playoffs are almost here. But so far, only one Nolan County team has secured a postseason berth. However, the Roscoe boys can join the Highland girls in the playoffs with a win tonight at Munday. Roscoe and Munday are currently tied for third place in District 9-A, Division I with 5-4 records. Tonight’s winner advances to the postseason. The game will end the regular season for both squads. In the first meeting between the teams, Roscoe won 54-46. The Plowboys are trying to make the playoffs for the first time since winning the Class 1A, Division I title in 2009.While the Highland girls will be going to Stamford today for a Class 1A, Division II playoff warmup, the boys (3-7) are clinging to playoff hopes after last Friday’s 50-42 victory over Westbrook that kept them mathematically alive. Tonight, the Hornets must beat Hermleigh (5-5), then win at Roby (8-2) on Tuesday while Hermleigh loses, and they may need more help even if they do that.
