Thanks to recent developments, both Tyler Lee and Whitehouse find themselves right back into their respective district championship races.

The Red Raiders (18-7, 5-2) are currently in a three-way tie with Longview and Mesquite Horn for second place in District 12-5A, just one game behind Friday’s opponent Mesquite (17-9, 6-1).

Mesquite defeated Lee, 55-47, on Jan. 2.

Whitehouse (19-6, 3-1 in District 16-4A) suffered a 78-65 loss to John Tyler last week, but the Lions have since lost twice in district. The Wildcats will take their shot at No. 12 and undefeated Jacksonville (27-0, 4-0) at Wildcat Arena on Friday night with a chance of pulling even with the Indians for the top spot in district.

There are also a couple of big matchups in Class A on Friday.

In Division I, eight-ranked San Augustine (13-5, 4-0) plays at No. 24 Broaddus (14-8, 3-1). Meanwhile in Division II, No. 10 Laneville (17-7, 4-2) is at No. 7 Oakwood (13-5, 6-1).
