The Thomas Jefferson girls basketball team is on the outside looking into the WPIAL playoff bubble.

That could change Monday.

TJ is currently in fifth place in Section 3-5A with a 4-6 section record.

The Jaguars are 7-12 overall and have lost three straight games.

Recent struggles will soon be forgotten though if they can win at home against Latrobe.

The Wildcats are 5-5 in the section and sit alone in fourth place. They have won three straight games and can clinch a playoff berth with a road win at Thomas Jefferson.

Latrobe won the first game at home, beating TJ, 65-56.

Ellis Snyder led the Wildcats with 24 points.

Even with a loss, Latrobe controls its own destiny heading into the section finale Thursday. The ‘Cats would need to beat Penn-Trafford or hope Thomas Jefferson falls to Connellsville to clinch if they don’t win Monday.

Watch the game on Trib HSSN at 7:30 p.m.
