For the second year in a row the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies are fighting for a playoff spot. Last year’s basketball team competed hard but still fell two places short of a playoff spot in District 32-4A. The one team ahead of them was Rio Grande City, tonight’s opponent a year later.
At just 2-6, the Rattlers’ chance of a postseason appearance is all but out of reach. However, for the Huskies every game counts, including tonights. Currently tied for fourth but in a dead heat race with Edcouch-Elsa and Brownsville Veterans Memorial, Juarez is forced to beat the teams it is supposed to while pulling an upset here and there.
