Cy Falls to host Cy Creek Friday night
The Cy Falls Lady Golden Eagles will try and bounce back from last week's tough loss to district kingpin Cy-Fair when they travel to meet Cy Creek at 7 p.m. Friday.
Cy Falls was hoping to pull off a major upset over Cy-Fair and ultimately earn the school's first girls basketball title in quite some time.
Now, it must try and hold off a good Cy Creek team to remain in the thick of the playoff hunt.
Cy Falls (19-4 overall and 4-1 in the league) is led by Shernise Robertson, who is averaging 11.6 points per game.
Cy Creek (13-9 overall and 3-1 in the league) is paced by the scoring of Angelica Weaver, who is averaging 14.8 points per game, and Karissa Hubbard, who is pouring in 14 points per contest.
ABOUT THE GAME

When: 7 p.m. Friday
Where: Cy Creek
At stake: Playoff positioning. Both teams enter the contest a game behind Cy-Fair in the District 15-5A race.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Cy Falls: Shernise Robertson (11.6 points per game); Larissa Scott (9.6 ppg); Katherine Metoyer (8.4 ppg); Macy Moore (7.4 ppg); Je'Lena Robertson (7.3 ppg).
Cy Creek: Angelica Weaver (14.8 points per game); Karissa Hubbard (14 ppg); Sara Adkinson (11.7 ppg); Zoe Tucker (10 ppg).
Cy Falls: The Lady Golden Eagles have five players averaging more than seven points per game, which is a luxury on the offensive end. The Lady Golden Eagles' only losses have come to state-ranked Cy-Fair, San Antonio Jay and Mansfield-Timberview, and area-ranked College Park. Cy Falls also has beaten College Park, Bellaire and Nimitz.
Cy Creek: Cy Creek lost to Cy-Fair 59-39, while Cy Falls lost to Cy-Fair 63-46, so, on paper, this look's like a pretty even matchup. Cy Falls might have a little more offensive firepower, so Cy Creek's best shot will be to win the rebounding battle and play tough half-court defense. Of course, it also should help having this game at home. Next up for Cy Creek after this game is Cy Ranch at home Tuesday.
