The Kingwood High School boys' basketball team swept a pair of District 21-6A games last week.

The Mustangs rolled past Baytown Sterling, 61-46, early last week at home and then traveled to C.E. King for a 29-22 victory.

Kingwood (15-7) has now won four straight games in district play after opening with a loss, setting up a showdown on Tuesday in Atascocita against the 5-0 Eagles. The game between the district's top two teams is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m.

Brandon Burrell scored eight points and both Matt Charles and Connor Gaines contributed seven points each as Kingwood broke a 13-13 tie at halftime to defeat C.E. King.

The Mustangs scored the final four points of the first quarter to gain a 9-7 lead, and later took a 20-18 edge into the fourth quarter on a Charles jumper. Kingwood finally gained some breathing room by scoring the first five points of the fourth quarter and were able to maintain the lead until the final whistle.

Earlier in the week, Chase Lovins poured in 23 points and Charles added 15 more as Kingwood eased past Baytown Sterling. The Mustangs built a 10-point lead at halftime, 27-17, and continued to put pressure on the Rangers in the second half as well.

The Mustangs continue district play this week when they host Goose Creek Memorial at 7 p.m. Friday.
