Grand Lake’s Luke Thomas reaches to put up a shot as he’s defended by the Warriors’ Dakori Lewis Tuesday night at Hamilton Christian.

In this edition of the Three Point Shot, Rodrick Anderson and Warren Arceneaux discuss Tuesday's slate of high school basketball games.

What is the most interesting boys game?

WA: Hathaway at Episcopal of Acadiana. The Hornets beat JS Clark to move into a tie for first place in District 7-B but has to win two road games this week to stay there. ESA is 17-10 on the season.

RA: Grand Lake can win the District 4-1A district title outright with a win over Elton at home today. The Indians will need to find a way to contain the Hornets' multiple scoring threats Kael Delcambre, Luke McCardle and Brayden Richard. Grand Lake shared the district title with Hamilton in 2017-2018.

What is the best girls game?

WA: St. Louis can clinch the District 4-3A title outright with a win over visiting Westlake, which can still win a share of the crown with two wins and two St. Louis losses. The Rams have a dynamic scorer in Destiny Peltier, who scored 21 in a win over Iowa Friday, while the Saints have numerous scoring options, led by Myca Trail, Anaiya Turner and Paris Guillory.

RA: Sulphur needs just one game to clinch at least a share of their first District 3-5A championship since 2015. But the key today will be stopping Barbe freshman Mikayla Manley, who regularly puts up 25 or more points a game. Barbe is curretly tied for second in the district along with Lafayette and a game behind Sulphur.

Name a player to watch.

WA: Kinder's Brooklyn Fontenot has led Kinder to an undefeated record in District 5-2A and had her best performance of the season Friday with 30 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in a win over DeQuincy.

RA: A lot of focus has been on Pitkin sharp-shooter Garrett Edwards, but junior guard Hayden Lavergne has played a big roll in the Tigers' 11-game win streak. During those 11 games, Lavergne has scored 12 or more points nine times with a high of 24 against Singer last week. A win over Anacoco today would give Pitkin the outright District 5-B championship.
