Pivotal games on the hardwood

ORANGE — Southeast Texas boys basketball teams will wrap up the first half of district action this week and there are some “gems” on the schedule for sure.

The District 21-3A race is definitely a tight one, as usual.

The West Orange-Stark Mustangs (15-8, 4-0) are tied atop the standings with the Silsbee Tigers (16-7, 4-0) going into the week with the Hardin-Jefferson Hawks (25-2, 3-1) in hot pursuit.

The Mustangs are coming off a 89-43 win over Buna (12-11, 0-5) last Friday while Silsbee downed Hamshire-Fannett (9-14, 2-3) and Hardin-Jefferson toppled Bridge City (10-12, 1-3) 81-36.

The Mustangs placed five players in double figures in the win over Buna with Laquarious Paige scoring 16 points. Tyrant Thompson and Cory Carcisse scored 11 points apiece while Chase Rutledge and Tevin Terrell scored 10 each.

In H-J’s big win over Bridge City, Zjori Bosha led the Hawks with 22 points while Devante Johnson had 17 and Braiden Harmon added 15.

Tonight’s 21-3A action will feature Silsbee taking on Hardin-Jefferson at Beaumont’s Ford Park Arena. The crowds have been so huge for this game in Sour Lake and Silsbee over the years and their gyms are too small to occupy overflow crowds. So this year, the two squads agreed to play both games at Ford Park.

The Mustangs, meanwhile, will head to Bridge City in a Orange County battle. The Orangefield Bobcats (12-8, 1-3), who had their bye on Friday, will look to stay in the race when they hit the road for Buna. Hamshire-Fannett will have the bye tonight.

If WO-S and Silsbee both win tonight, that will set up a first-place showdown at Mustang Gym Friday night when the Mustangs welcome in the Tigers. Other 21-3A games Friday will pit Bridge City at Orangefield in another Orange County rivalry battle while Hamshire-Fannett travels to Hardin-Jefferson.

In District 20-4A, it looks like it will be a three-way battle for the title down the stretch.

Beaumont Central (18-4, 5-0) is alone in first after downing Livingston (8-12, 1-4) 56-31 last Friday.

Nederland (18-7, 4-1) and Beaumont Ozen (12-9, 4-1) are tied for second after Ozen tripped up Nederland 66-59 on Friday.

Both Port Neches-Groves (8-13, 3-2) and Lumberton (9-17, 3-2) remain in hot pursuit and are tied for fourth. PN-G downed Vidor (5-15, 0-5) 49-39 on Friday while Lumberton downed Little Cypress-Mauriceville (9-15, 0-5) 53-51.

20-4A games tonight will pit LC-M at Central, Ozen at PN-G, Livingston at Vidor, and Nederland at Lumberton.

Games this Friday will include Vidor at LC-M, Central at Nederland, Lumberton at Ozen, and PN-G at Livingston.
