Radio: KSEL-FM 105.9.

Last outing: The Greyhounds edged Abilene Christian 74-71 at Abilene on Tuesday. Kingsville handed West Texas A&M a last-second 64-62 loss at home on Wednesday.

Notes: The Hounds won the earlier meeting at Kingsville 72-62 on Jan. 16, putting four players in double figures and holding the Javelinas to 35 percent FG shooting.

They are trying to salvage a seventh consecutive winning season today. … Kingsville coach Pete Peterson will be seeking his 200th win at the school.
