Tickets on sale for both Martin-Nixon basketball games


LAREDO, Tx. (KGNS) – Local sports lovers are invited to watch two rival high schools battle it out on the basketball court.

Tickets for the Martin vs. Nixon boys’ and girls’ basketball games are officially available to the general public.

The boys play at Martin High School and the girls play at Nixon High School.

Both Martin and Nixon are competing to be the best team in District 30-5A and this game will help complete the first round of the District Game.

Luis Escamilla, the assistant sporting director, says it’s a revival that dates back decades.

“It’s nice to see both schools in the same district now fighting for a district title and going on a deep playoff run. Last year we had Nixon for 6A in the past for years, but now they’re back in the 5A so the traditions are back. The rivalry is back and it’s great to see two schools pull it off and keep it on the pitch.

Tickets for both games are available, general admission is $4 for adults while student tickets are $3.

Games begin Tuesday, January 17 at 7:00 p.m
