Everyone is settling into district play as teams are positioning themselves for the postseason.

So who is hot?

Cy Falls is back on track after a challenging tournament season, and should dominate the district. Cy Creek is the only squad standing in their way and they play each other on Friday.

Sam Houston and Westside are the class of the HISD, while Clear Lake is the Big Bird down south. The Falcons have it rolling again under Coach Penders.

After a shaky pre-district slate, the Tompkins Falcons are playing well. Bieniemy (OU), Slojund (Ga. Tech) and Williams are tough to guard.

Shadow Creek is playing a fun brand of basketball and is young, along with Dickinson. Deer Park is having a breakout year along with the BF Terry Rangers.

Stay tuned…

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
