Lake Highlands Beats Richardson, Makes Playoffs

From 2011 02 LHHS vs RHS Basketball

The Lake Highlands Wildcats boys basketball team won a District 9-5A tiebreaker Friday night against the Richardson Eagles, 95-57. It was all Wildcats all the time. Trey Bingham was unstoppable, leading all scorers with 33 points. Malcolm Oaks led Richardson with 16 points. Richardson ends their season with an 8-6 district record (15-17 overall).

With the win, Lake Highlands (8-6 district, 19-13 overall) secures the fourth and final playoff spot in District 9-5A. The Wildcats will be tested early in the playoffs. They are scheduled to play Garland Lakeview Centennial, the state's #1 ranked team, Tuesday night at JJ Pearce High School. (Berkner plays Garland Naaman Forest in the first game of a double-header.)
