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…

Here's why the Astros could have the best pitching staff in MLB

With a new season on the horizon, the Astros have high hopes for 2024 after coming just one game shy of being in the World Series for three consecutive seasons.

If Houston wants to get back to the Fall Classic in 2024, they're going to have to rely on their pitching. Owner Jim Crane believes the club has 8 starting pitchers when Luis Garcia and Lance McCullers Jr. return mid-season.

Which allows several of the starters to move to the bullpen and provide even more depth. Add those guys to Bryan Abreu, Ryan Pressly, and Josh Hader and you have a recipe for success.

Check out the video above as ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham goes through the entire staff and makes his case for the Astros having the best pitching staff in baseball.

You can listen to The Killer B's with Jeremy Branham and Joel Blank every weekday on ESPN 97.5 & 92.5 from 3 pm - 6 pm!
