The Redhawks basketball teams look to serve as not-so-gracious hosts on Friday as each team looks to bounce back from a loss when they take on the Centennial Titans in District 9-5A play at The Nest.

The Dallas Morning News number 2 5A team, the girls’ take the court at 6:30 p.m. after losing to the Memorial in overtime on Tuesday 37-32.

“Centennial is always a tough opponent,” girls head coach Ross Reedy said. “They have had a lot of success over the last three or four years… the fact that they are right down the street it’s always something to get excited about.”

Sitting in a three-way tie for third place in District 9-5A, the boys’ team is scheduled to tip-off at 8:00 p.m. 

“I think they’re hungry,” boys head coach Stephen Friar said. “I expect for us to come out and play hard, be prepared; put forth their best effort and lock in a little bit better.”
