WHS, WE boys headed for showdown

by | Feb 13, 2016 | Sports

This Tuesday’s regular-season finale between the Wylie and Wylie East boys’ basketball teams will be do-or-die affair, with the winner making the playoffs and the loser hangs up their shoes until next season.
Both teams are currently 8-5 in District 10-5A, and battling for that fourth and final playoff spot, following a pair of losses Friday night: Wylie fell 62-56 at McKinney and East dropped a 73-63 decision to district leader McKinney North. The latter leads the division with an 11-2 record, with Prosper right behind them at 10-3. McKinney is right behind them at 9-4, and a win this Tuesday over Denison will at least lock up the No. 3 spot.
McKinney North plays Tuesday at Prosper and a win gives them the district crown, while a Prosper victory will result in a tie with Prosper as the likely No. 1 seed, since they would have swept North in 10-5A play.
If Wylie wins Tuesday night, and McKinney loses to Denison the same evening, they will have the same record, but McKinney will likely finish as the No. 3 seed by virtue of having swept Wylie in district competition. However, a Wylie East win and McKinney loss, which also would leave those two schools with identical records, could result in a play-in game for third, since the teams split during the 10-5A season.
