Laredo has played 10 Kid's Day Games in their history, and have posted a 9-1 record in those contests. The Bucks are 8-1 at home in Kid's Day Games, including 2-0 against the Killer Bees.

After Tuesday's game the Bucks will embark on a season-high five game road trip that starts Friday night in New Mexico.

Rio is just six points back of the Bucks for second place in the Division, and third in the conference.

Jesse Bennefield leads the Killer Bees in scoring with 52 points (26-26-52).

The Bucks will start a five-game road trip this weekend, when they play Friday and Saturday in New Mexico.

Laredo will return home for the final Big Buck Thirsty Thursday of the season on February 26th, when they host Arizona at the LEC.
