The Odessa High girls basketball team will wrap up the regular season on the road as the Lady Bronchos face Amarillo Tascosa at 6 tonight in Amarillo.

The Lady Bronchos (18-14 overall, 3-6 district) have a chance to clinch the fourth playoff spot with a victory against the Lady Rebels or a Permian loss to Midland High.

An Odessa High loss and Permian victory would result in a play-in game that would be played at a time and place to be determined.

Tascosa (25-7, 6-3) can clinch the number two seed with a victory and a Midland Lee loss to Wolfforth Frenship.

The Permian girls basketball team faces a must-win situation when it hosts Midland High at 6 tonight at the Permian Fieldhouse.

The Lady Panthers (12-18 overall, 2-7 district) must win and have Odessa High lose to Amarillo Tascosa to have a one-game playoff to determine the No. 4 seed out of District 2-6A.

The Lady Dawgs (16-14, 2-7) will look to play the role of spoiler after being eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to Odessa High Friday.

The Odessa High boys basketball team will look to bounce back from a tough loss when it takes on Amarillo Tascosa at 7:30 tonight in Amarillo.

The Bronchos (8-22 overall, 0-7 district) lost 93-38 Friday night at Midland High while the Rebels (18-8, 5-2) defeated Midland Lee 83-62 to stay in a three-way tie for first place with Midland High and Permian in District 2-6A.

First place is on the line as Permian takes on Midland High at 7:30 tonight in District 2-6A play at the Permian Fieldhouse.

The Panthers (20-7 overall, 5-2 district) and Bulldogs (18-12, 5-2) are both tied for first place with Amarillo Tascosa, with three games remaining in the regular season.

The Panthers will look to earn the season split after falling 65-52 to the Bulldogs on Jan. 18 in Midland.
