Lake Highlands High School doesn’t have any alums still playing in these exciting final college basketball games of the season, but if your brackets are busted and you are looking for a team to cheer, consider this: Wildcat point guard Jaylen Washington has committed to play for the University of North Texas when he graduates in 2024. His future team will play Thursday in the NIT championship.

North Texas rallied in the final seconds to beat Wisconsin 56-54 in Las Vegas. They’ll take on the University of Alabama – Birmingham at 8:40 p.m. CT tomorrow/Thursday night. You may watch the game on ESPN2. Go Mean Green.
