The Lady Leopards (11-18 overall, 5-7 district) will try to snap a four-game losing streak tonight as they cling to a three-way-tie for fourth place in the district.

They face the Wylie Pirates (11-17, 5-7), also tied for the final playoff spot along with Wylie East, at 6:15 p.m.. All three have a 5-7 district record so whoever finishes with the best record will advance to the playoffs.

The Raiders will look to win their second game in a row as they defeated Sherman on Tuesday night, 41-38.

In preparation for Wylie, head coach Lance Boxell is working with his team on facing Wylie’s 1-2-2 defense.

“We need to move the ball quickly and work on getting the ball to the paint by passing the ball into the post, along with dribble penetration,” Boxell said.

One of Wylie’s leading scorers, sophomore guard Madi Miller has had 10 games this year where she has scored 10 or more points for her team.

On Tuesday night, the Lady Leopards took their worst loss of the year against Prosper, 77-27. Sophomore guard Lauren Alexander led the team with 9 points in the loss.
