Lake Highlands lost a little ground Friday night as it fell to Berkner 82-77.

However, a number of good things happened that prove promising for the remainder of the season, and keep a good outlook on the rest of the District 9-5A schedule.

Richardson also lost its first district game this week, falling to Jesuit 55-44 at home.

That keeps Lake Highlands in a two-way tie for second place in 9-5A.

Also, Trey Bingham led the team in scoring, with 23 points. Bingham continues to come up big, in big games night-in and night-out.

More importantly, James Preston and Taylor Stell each added 17 points Friday night.

The two add an exceptional offensive punch either when Bingham isn’t on, or as a compliment.

The Wildcats had a 41-38 lead in the first half, but were outscored 23-17 in the final quarter.

Lake Highlands plays its next game at 7:30 p.m. Friday Jan. 14 at Jesuit, who is tied with Skyline at 2-2 for the fourth spot in district playoff standings.
