Due to wintry weather, neither Houston High School basketball team played last week, as the boys game scheduled for Friday at Laquey and girls contest Thursday at Dora were both canceled.

This week, both squads are in fields at eight-team midseason tournaments, with the Tigers playing in the Conway Invitational and the Lady Tigers in the Lady Lion Invitational at Mansfield. Both teams had first-round games on Tuesday, with the boys facing Aurora and the girls taking on Ava.

After lengthy stretches of nothing but road games, both HHS teams will be back on the home court in February, as the Lady Tigers will host Ava on Monday, Feb. 3, and the Tigers will welcome the Ava boys on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

Both HHS squads are in the process of jockeying for seeding in their respective Missouri State High School Activities Association Class 3 District 4 tournaments, set for late February at Mountain Grove.
