Tonight, the Borger Bulldogs (9-11) open District 1-3A boys basketball play hosting the Perryton Rangers (17-4) starting at 7:30 p.m. at Tex Hanna Gym.
Despite a record that is two games under .500, the Bulldogs have shown a lot of improvement on the court since November and could make some noise in the district standings.
Junior guard Jamon Hearon continues to lead the Bulldogs in scoring, but the team has seen the whole roster get involved, led by seniors Grant Boren and Aaron Smith, along with junior guard Kolter Newton.
On Monday evening, the #10 Odessa College Wranglers escaped the BCAC with an 89-84 win over the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen in the WJCAC opener for both teams.
The Plainsmen held a three point lead, 68-65, with 9:30 left in the second half. Unfortunately, the Wranglers used a 10-2 run to build a five point lead that the Plainsmen were not able to overcome in the final four minutes of the game.
On Monday night, the Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen could not overcome a slow start in their WJCAC opener to Odessa College losing to the Lady Wranglers, 82-51.
Both the Lady Plainsmen and Lady Wranglers opened the game struggling offensively. But eight turnovers and early foul trouble by the Lady Plainsmen, in the first five minutes, helped Odessa College build a 0-10 lead.
