    Sulphur Springs,  9-8 on the year, will host Tyler All Saints Episcopal in a non-district contest.
    All Saints features a team which scores 84 points a game, six times this year they have scored over 100 points in a win. Two other times they reached 97 points with their blistering pace of offense.
    The Trojans are 21-2 on the season. Top scorer is Aston Francis at 22 points per game. Jaired Maddox is scoring 18.8 per contest, while Luke Lee pumps in 11.2 points per game.

    Lee, a 6-3 sophomore forward, is the leading rebounder, averaging 7.3 boards per game.
    “We think it will be a good matchup. We can stay with them physically. We are just glad to finally have another home game,” said Jeremy Josey, Sulphur Springs head boys basketball coach. “We will have our hands full.”
    Josey said the team he expects to be a high-scoring run and gun team in district will be Marshall.
    “You can tell All Saints plays basketball yeararound,” Josey said. “They are very disciplined. They play a fast-paced up and down the court attack. I think we will rise to the occasion and play well.”
    The two teams went to overtime last season in Tyler. Sulphur Springs fell by a 67-60 final.
