The Clinton Lady Arrow basketball team plays tonight after improving to 22-3 with an easy 70-49 win over Warren Central Monday night in the district tournament held at Jackson Murrah.
They open district play at 7:30 p.m. against Murrah, the tournament host.
The third-ranked Lady Arrows will meet the winner of the Greenville-Weston-Murrah game on Friday night for the tournament championship. A win will have the Lady Arrows hosting a one game elimination playoff game Monday night in the opening round of the playoffs.
CHS and Murrah tied for the No. 2 seed and each team is 3-3 in district play, but the Mustangs won the tie breaker on margin of points in wins over Clinton head to head.
"We feel very good going into the district tournament," said Arrow head basketball coach Clay Norton. "The district teams were so evenly matched that no game was won by more that 10 points against each other. We started out very slow, going 1-5 in the month of November. But we are playing pretty good right now and have won 12 of the last 16."
"By this time in the season , it is just fine tuning what we do. We are very healthy and we've begun to learn how to finish a game out."
If the Arrows finish first or second in the tournament , the will host a playoff game on Feb 25 or travel for a one game elimination playoff game.
