The Wildcats and Lady Cats Basketball Teams have non-district games on this Tuesday (December 10) game day.
The Lady Cats are at home playing New Boston in the Main Gym at Sulphur Springs High School. There will be a JV game at 5 p.m. with the varsity game coming up at around 6:15 p.m. The Lady Cats are hoping to break a three game losing streak. They dropped their last three games in a Glen Rose tournament this past weekend. The Lady Cats season record is 4-9. Lady Cats Coach Brittney Tisdell said like Terrell and Liberty-Eylau, New Boston will be super athletic and fast and will pressure the ball. She says if the Lady Cats can stay calm and handle the pressure, they should do alright. KSST Radio will have the Lady Cats and New Boston game live beginning at around 6:15 p.m. with live audio streaming. The game will also be videotaped for replay later on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
Meanwhile the Wildcats Basketball Team will be taking on the Dallas Woodrow Wilson Wildcats in Dallas. There will be a freshman game at 5 p.m., a JV contest at 6:15 p.m. with the varsity game at around 8 p.m. Woodrow has a 5-7 season record according to Max Preps but they have played some good teams. The Wildcats, ranked #3 in Class 5A, are 8-2 for the season. They just finished in fifth place in a Mansfield tournament last weekend by winning 4 of 5 games. Included were wins over Pearland Shadow Creek, #2 ranked in Class 5A, and Killeen Ellison, ranked #6 in Class 6A. Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta says Woodrow Wilson lost no one off of last year’s team. He says they are very tall with several guys from 6-foot-6 to 6-foot-9. Coach Cipoletta says not many teams make the Wildcats look small but Woodrow Wilson does. He says the Wildcats will have their hands full defending Wilson’s size. He says the Wildcats may be more athletic at some positions than Wilson. Coach Cipoletta says the Wildcats will need to execute, keep Wilson off the boards and defend them inside.
