The Coleville girls' basketball team remained in first place in the Western 1A League with a 36-15 win over Sierra Lutheran at the Stewart Gym in Carson City Monday night.

The Coleville boys' squad followed with a 34-24 win over Sierra Lutheran, improving to 111-13 overall and 4-5 in league play on the year.

For the second time this school year, Douglas and Reno High School will meet up with the Sierra League title on the line.

Douglas prevailed in football at Reno, hanging on for a 24-21 win in late October to claim the league title.

Tonight, if Reno should win by any amount, the Huskies will all but seal up the league title. They have already clinched at least a home playoff game.

Douglas can put itself in position to win the league title with a win by six points or more. A win by any less will still put the Tigers in position for a home playoff game. A loss in any of the Tigers' last three games this week will send Douglas out on the road for the first round of the playoffs.

Reno won the first matchup between the two schools 62-59, but Douglas led with two minutes remaining.

Reno has size inside and some sharp shooters from the outside, which could present some problems for the Tigers defensively.

If Douglas can get hot from the field, however, this game could go either way.

Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

On the girls' side, the Tigers are playing for third place. They must win two of their three games this week, although tonight's matchup against Reno will be their toughest matchup.

Reno has lost just one regular season league game in the last three or four years. The Huskies are one of the frontrunners to win the region, but look for Douglas to give them a tough test. The Tigers have shown much improvement in the last two weeks and are playing their best basketball in the last several years.
