Longhorn boys close out regular season Friday, subdistricts next week
Chase County’s Longhorn boys’ basketball team will close out the regular season with a home game Friday.
The Longhorns will take a 4-17 mark into the game against Sutherland, which comes in at 7-11.
The two teams met in the consolation bracket during the SPVA tournament with the Longhorns taking a 36-34 win. Action kicks off Friday with the jayvee game at 5 p.m. MT.
The Longhorns come off a weekend with no games after their last win Feb. 3, against St. Pat’s, 61-52.
Normally, the Longhorns would have had two games last week.
The game at Hershey got rescheduled to an earlier date this season because Hershey was hosting a district wrestling meet there this year.
The other game was always with Holyoke, Colo. However, they dropped Chase County from their schedule.
That leave’s Friday’s game as the final tune-up before the Longhorns enter subdistrict play Monday.
The Longhorns go into the C1-11 subdistrict at North Platte High as the No. 5 seed.
They will face the No. 4 seed, 12-10 Cozad, in the play-in game, which begins at 6 p.m. MT.
The two teams met on the opening weekend of the season with Cozad coming out on top 59-47.
The winner of that game will advance to play top-seeded, 21-2 Gothenburg Tuesday at 5 p.m. MT.
The teams on the other side of the bracket include second-seeded Hershey, 16-4, and third- seeded Ogallala, 12-10. That game begins at 6:30 p.m. MT Tuesday.
The subdistrict final will be played Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. MT.
