Coaches vs. Cancer Shootout on Saturday

Posted Wednesday, January 23, 2013, at 7:55 PM

Charleston is hosting the fourth annual Coaches Versus Cancer Shootout this Saturday, which will feature high school girls basketball teams from all over the area.

All proceeds are donated to the St. Francis Foundation Dig for Life campaign, according to Charleston girls basketball coach Josh Thompson. Tickets, which are good for all of the games throughout the day, cost $6.

It sounds like a worthy clause, so if you'd like to see some good girls basketball this weekend, Charleston is the place to go.

The schedule:

10:30 a.m. -- Sikeston vs. Scott County Central

Noon -- Greenville vs. Portageville

1:30 p.m. -- East Prairie vs. Woodland

3:00 p.m. -- Poplar Bluff vs. Carbondale

4:30 p.m. -- Dexter vs. St. Joseph's Academy

6:00 p.m. -- New Madrid vs. Meadow Heights

7:30 p.m. -- Charleston vs. Twin Rivers

I might head over to catch the 4:30 p.m. game Saturday. I really enjoy watching the Dexter basketball team play. I'm interested to see how they will perform against a large private school like St. Joseph's.

I heard Dexter is going to play Saxony. Anyone have any feed back on this?

The Dexter-Saxony Lutheran game could be one for the ages. They might be talking about this one for years.

St Joe 55, Dexter 50

Sorry, Dustin, but I don't see it. The Lady Crusaders are playing great, but they won't play within 20 points of Dexter.

Well, all things considering the talent Dexter has and for them be mostly Juniors and Saxony comprised of freshmen 20 points would be considered close in my books.That would be a moral victory for Saxony.

Dexter won't be taking them for granted, I guarantee you!!

Dexter vs. St. Joseph was an excellent game played between two awesome teams. The players played their hearts out and the coaches were well prepared and professional in their actions. Good luck to Dexter and all our area teams as they chase a state berth and possibly a title or two.

Dustin, I think you are way of base on this one.

Dustin, not one for the ages but a good game. Very physical. Saxony very scrappy. They will do well in the playoffs I think. Lady Bearcats did what they needed to do. Harris had 22 for Dexter.
