As the first round of district nears its conclusion, there are few teams looking to finish strong by taking over sole possession of first place in their respective leagues.

In 17-2A, No. 19 Tatum (23-2, 6-0) plays to host Elysian Fields (18-7, 6-0) in a matchup of teams who both began the season ranked in the top 25 by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.

Tatum is coming off a dominant 60-36 win over White Oak on Tuesday. The Lady Eagles were led by Kiana Turner, who finished with a game-high 21 points to go with five rebounds and two steals.

Elysian Fields enters on the heels of a 60-50 defeat of New Diana on Tuesday. Janice Strange led the way with 20 points, while Chesney Spears and Kaylee Prather combined for 30.

There is currently a three-way tie atop the 14-2A standings between Alba-Golden (19-5, 5-1), Edgewood (16-6, 5-1) and perennial power Winnsboro (16-9, 5-1).

Edgewood plays host to Winnsboro on Friday after the two met three times last season -- twice in district and then in the regional final, where Edgewood came away victoriously and punched a ticket to the state tournament.

Winnsboro cruised past Como-Pickton 75-19, while Edgewood rolled to a 59-37 win over Quitman earlier in the week.

Also in 2A, West Rusk (17-6, 5-1 in 18-2A) goes on the road to face Harmony (11-9, 5-1) with the winner gaining a leg up in the district race.

In Class A Division I, the top-ranked Martin's Mill Lady Mustangs (20-4, 4-0) face a stiff road test at Overton (18-4, 4-0). Martin's Mill is coming off a dominating 69-13 win over Big Sandy, while the Lady Mustangs defeated Harleton 51-49 on Tuesday.

In Class 4A, control of second place in District 16-4A will be at stake when John Tyler (16-9, 1-1) plays at Nacogdoches (16-8, 2-0). The Lady Lions defeated Jacksonville, 43-37, while Nacogdoches overwhelmed Whitehouse 66-36 on Tuesday.
