Following Tuesday’s contest, the Wolverines are home to host league opponent Cedar Park Christian (2-2 league, 7-3 overall) on Friday, tip off is 6 p.m., and then face regional 1A rival Meridian, Saturday, in a match up with post-season implications.

The girls team will be looking to rebound from back-to-back losses in non-league play and gain ground in the race for the Northwest 1A/2B League title on the road Tuesday against Shoreline Christian (1-3. 2-6). The Wolverines (4-0, 6-2) host Cedar Park Christian on Friday, tip off is at 7:30 p.m., and follow up at home on Saturday against the Trojans of Meridian (2-5); tip off is noon.
