Red Raiders, Lions to Faceoff on Neutral Court

Tuesday night cross town rivals Robert E. Lee and John Tyler will hit the court.

It is always a big game. So big, this year the location has been moved.

TISD Athletic Director Danny Long said to accomodate fans, both matchups between Lee and JT this season will be played at TJC.

Long said there is about a 1,500 seat differential between Lee's gym and John Tyler's. In the past, he actually had to lock the doors to keep more fans from filing in.

The varsity games will be played at TJC's Wagstaff Gymnasium beginning at 7:30 p.m on Tuesday, January 22 and Thursday, February 8.
