SW girls tied for 3rd in district after winning at Monahans; ‘Stangs lose

January 30, 2013

MONAHANS — The Sweetwater girls basketball team did what it had to do Tuesday in order to keep its playoff hopes alive this season as it went to Monahans and won, 54-43, to snap a three-game losing streak.
The win for Sweetwater (18-13, 4-4 district) came in its final road game of the year and, coupled with Big Spring’s 60-24 loss to first-place Wylie on Tuesday, moved Sweetwater into a third-place tie in District 4-3A with the Lady Steers.

SW teams must beat Monahans to keep playoff hopes in 4-3A

January 29, 2013

Sweetwater’s basketball teams may well have to win at Monahans today in order to hold on to any realistic hopes of a District 4-3A playoff berth.
That’s certainly true for the Sweetwater boys (1-4), who are two games behind Monahans (3-2), which is currently in third place.
But the Sweetwater girls (3-4) also need a win as they trail Big Spring (4-3) by a game for the No. 3 spot after losing three straight. They face a Monahans team that is 0-7, and Sweetwater probably has to win tonight and at home this Friday against 1-6 Snyder to have a realistic shot of getting to the playoffs.

Sweetwater led 29-1 at halftime and 40-3 after three periods of play.
