As classes resume following the holiday break, so does the Tuesday-Friday routine of high school basketball.
Tuesday night, most of Brown County’s squads are in action — some in district contests while others are tuning up for league play.
The Brownwood Lady Lions (15-8) have the night off in preparation for Friday’s District 5-4A opener at Warren Gym against No. 10 Abilene Wylie (13-7). Wylie is coming off a double-digit loss to No. 11 Stephenville, while the Lady Lions posted a 2-2 record at the Breckenridge tournament.
The Brownwood Lions (11-8), meanwhile, have three games left on their non-district slate as they visit former league rival Graham at 8 p.m. The Lions notched a district win over the Steers a year ago, Brownwood’s only league win since 2012 — the last year the program qualified for the postseason.
The Lions are also coming off a consolation championship performance at the Breckenridge tournament where Corleone Pressley was named to the all-tournament team.
In other basketball action, Early ventures to Priddy and Bangs welcomes Clyde in a pair of doubleheaders. For the Lady Horns and Lady Dragons, Tuesday’s contests will be their last until they face each other in the District 6-3A opener at Early Friday night.
The Lady Horns’ most recent outing was a 43-29 loss to Hamilton in which Lauren Jesko scored nine points followed by Alexis Ray with seven, Jayslin King with six, Hallie Tyler with five and Makayla Deleon with two points.
Other Brown County basketball doubleheaders tonight include Blanket hosting Lometa, Brookesmith traveling to Eden, and Zephyr venturing to Sidney — all district contests. The May Tigers and Lady Tigers have a bye.
