Greenville Lions' home finale moved to Saturday

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

GREENVILLE —   The Greenville Lions will honor seven seniors in today’s home finale against Royse City.

  The game starts at 3 p.m. with only the varsity scheduled. It was moved from Friday night because of inclement weather as the Greenville Independent School District called off classes.

  The seven seniors to be recognized in pre-game ceremonies are Jerry Dickeson, Collen Wilburn, Marlon Mack, John Franklin, Byron Redmon, Javontae Mitchell and Khy’re Veasley.

  “The Lions need to win their next two games and hope that Wylie East loses their next two games in order for Greenville to have a shot at making the playoffs,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “I’m proud of my seniors and our parent support. Our seniors will truly be missed.”

  Royse City, 10-13 overall, ranks fifth in the District 13-4A standings with a 5-7 record that includes a 68-60 win over Greenville on Jan. 14 at Royse City.

  Greenville is 12-12 overall and ranks sixth in the district standings with a 4-8 mark.

  A Royse City victory today keeps the Bulldogs’ playoff hopes alive and eliminates Greenville from playoff consideration.

Bland 35
