See additional information and brackets for the South Pemiscot and Campbell varsity basketball tournaments below:
The Bernie Mules have received the No. 1 seed in the Campbell Invitational varsity boys basketball tournament.
"The number one seed in the opening tournament doesn't mean a whole lot," Bernie coach Brad Botsch said following the seed meeting Wednesday afternoon. "Nobody has played yet and there are several teams who could have gamered that spot. We appreciate the respect shown by the coaches, but we want to be the No. 1 at the conclusion of the tournament."
Holcomb is seeded second, Risco is seeded third, Twin Rivers is seeded fourth, Puxico is seeded fifth, Bloomfield is seeded sixth, East Prairie is seeded seventh and Campbell is seeded eighth.
The Campbell Invitational Tournament will take place Nov. 26 - Nov. 30. The championship of the 8-team tournament is scheduled to be played Nov. 30 at 8:30 p.m.
Risco is the defending champion. Risco beat Holcomb last season in the title game to win the tournament for the first time since the 1974-75 season.
Bernie won the tournament four straight seasons before Risco ended the streak in 2011. Bernie placed third in the tournament last season.
