PALESTINE — Rusk will trek up to Palestine tonight (7 p.m. tip-off) for its final Distirct 19-3A game against the hometown Wildcats.

Both clubs enter play with identical 3-4 conference slates; therefore the winner of the game will earn the third-place spot from the league in the state Class 3A playoffs which will open early next week.

As for the loser? Well, its off to baseball or track and field.
