Hello from KPRC Channel 2 Sports and the Xfinity Sports Desk. Here’s what’s happening this week on the Houston Sports scene.

Rockets

This has been a terrible stretch for the Houston Rockets since their big win in Boston 9 days ago. Since then they have lost 4 straight and now have fallen all the way to 6th in the West just ahead of 7th seeded Dallas. The Rockets host Minnesota Tuesday then hit the road against the Lakers Thursday and Blazers Sunday afternoon.

HS Hoops

Congrats to the Cy Creek girls for advancing to state where they fell in the 6A final to Duncanville for their only loss of the season. The boys final four ramps up this weekend with four Houston area teams advancing. Good luck to Hightower, Yates, Stafford and Dickinson who is back for the first time since 1955.

UH Hoops

The AAC Champs head to Fort Worth for the conference tournament where they will be the number one seed. Kelvin Sampson’s team will be a lock for the NCAA Tournament.

Lastly, a shoutout to the XFL’s best team so far in the Houston Roughnecks. They remain unbeaten at 5-0 after downing Seattle 32-23. Next up is a trip to New York on Saturday!
