After a three-game winning streak to close the regular season, Highland Park is still aiming to improve its playoff seeding.
The Scots (21-10, 10-4) defeated North Forney 82-67 on Tuesday, meaning HP is knotted with Forney for the runner-up spot in the District 15-5A standings.

The Lady Scots will travel to the Tournament of Champions beginning Thursday at Oran Good Park in Farmers Branch. Their pool opponents include Haslet Eaton, Frisco Reedy, El Paso Eastwood, and Celina. Bracket play is slated for Saturday.
After that, HP will head to Frisco Liberty for a nondistrict game on Feb. 24. The Lady Scots won’t return home until March 2 against Keller Central.
