The No. 1-ranked Lady Cardinals go after a 43rd straight Cardinal Gym win today against San Jacinto at 5:30 p.m. The game will be streamed (audio) online at www.youreasttexas.com.
The Lady Cardinals are 27-1 on the year and 14-0 in conference. San Jacinto is 7-18 and 2-12.
Earlier this month, the Lady Cardinals were an 80-46 winner against San Jacinto.
With a win against San Jacinto, the Lady Cardinals will clinch no worse than a share of a 12th straight conference championship.
The Lady Cardinals are scheduled to wrap up the regular season at home Saturday against ninth-ranked Blinn at 4 p.m. A win would give the Lady Cardinals an outright conference title and the No. 1 seed in the regional tournament next week.
The Lady Cardinals are scheduled to return to action Friday in the opening day of the three-day Region XIV Cross Over Tournament in Longview. They take a 13-7 record into the event.
Here is the seven-game schedule for the Lady Cardinals:
2 p.m. – vs. Alvin
6 p.m. – vs. San Jacinto
9 a.m. – vs. Lamar
3 p.m. – vs. Coastal Bend
7 p.m. – vs. Blinn
11 a.m. – vs. Galveston
3 p.m. – vs. Angelina
Coach Ashley Johnston is four wins from her 100th career victory.
The Lady Cardinals’ next home game is Wednesday, March 14 against Navarro. Doubleheader action begins at 1 p.m.
The Cardinals head east across the border tonight to take on Bossier Parish in their final road game of the regular season. Game time is 7 p.m.
The Cardinals take an 18-10 season record into the contest. They are 9-8 in conference play. Bossier Parish, which fell 80-69 to the Cardinals earlier this month at Cardinal Gym, is 9-17 and 2-15.
Improving their seeding at next week’s regional tournament will be the top priority for the Cardinals. With two games to go, it appears they will most likely be seeded anywhere from 7-10.
The Cardinals are scheduled to close the regular season at home Saturday against Navarro. Game time is 6 p.m.
