Eagles host Monahans, Crane teams

The Pecos Eagle basketball teams will play the first of five home doubleheaders tonight at the Pecos High School gym, when the girls open District 4-3A play by hosting Monahans and the boys play their final pre-district home game, against the Crane Golden Cranes.

The girls will play at 6 p.m., followed by the boys' game at about 7:30 p.m. Pecos' JV girls and freshman boys will face Monahans and Crane at 4:30 p.m., and the JV Eagles will take on the Cranes at 6 p.m. in the old PHS gym.

Both Eagle teams will be trying to halt losing streaks at home tonight. The boys have dropped four straight games since a win at Lamesa on Dec. 29, while the girls have lost two straight, both against Crane, since returning from their two-week Christmas break.

The girls fell to the Cranes in their home opener on Tuesday by a 53-39 score, in a game where Crane used a 10-0 run to take a 14-point lead to close out the first half.

Crane's post Amada Baker led all scorers with 15 points, though the Eagles tried to force the Cranes to shoot from the outside during the game. For tonight, coach Veronica Valenzuela said the Eagles would probably try to do the same thing against Monahans' post Laura Crumrine.

"She's been their top scorer in the games I've watched them play," she said. "They also had a couple of guards that shot well, but I'd rather have them earn their shots from the outside, so we're going to try the same strategy again."

The Eagles are 3-11 on the season, while Monahans comes into play with a 10-7 record.

Pecos' boys are 6-11 on the season following their 46-40 loss at Big Spring on Tuesday, in a game where the Steers used a 20-6 advantage in the third period to wipe out a 22-13 halftime lead by the Eagles. Crane, meanwhile, was routed by Pecos' district6 rival Kermit on the road Tuesday night, losing by an 87-42 final score. Hunter Seabourne led the Cranes with 14 points.

"Crane's got some good athletes. They were a young team when we played them last year, and they're still a pretty young team, but it will be a tough game," said Eagles' coach Joe Flores.

The boys district season is still a week off. Pecos has one final pre-district game, in Jal, N.M. on Tuesday, before returning home to face 4-3A favorite Greenwood to start off the district schedule. Pecos' girls also will host Greenwood that night, and go to Fort Stockton on Tuesday.
