Post your scores all week here.
Jackson leads Notre Dame 2-0 early in the opening game of the SEMO Conferencee tournament.
Notre Dame leads 6-4 with 4:48 left in the first quarter.
Jackson leads Notre Dame 19-11 after one quarter. Height seems to be the difference so far.
Jackson leads Notre Dame 40-21 at halftime. Jackson may be trying to send a message. Height, turnovers, and bad shooting from three (again) are hurting Notre Dame but Jackson is just clearly the better team right now.
Wonder how long it will be before all those Jackson folks start wanting Darrin fired!! HA!
Makes you wonder about the coaches and their thinking when seeding the tournament. It was obvious to most "lay" people that Jackson was going to be better than cape. Just saying.
Cape was coming off of a district championship season in Class 5 last year and the seeding was done before Cape started to have all of their turmoil. Meanwhile, how Jackson's height was going to translate to the court was not yet known. If anything, they should have seeded later than they did but I can understand their original thinking. Besides, a lot of people think NMCC maybe should have been the three and Cape the six which means the matchup could be right just the wrong teams in the home and away uniform.
Jackson leads Notre Dame 40-25 with 5:43 to go in the third. Timeout Jackson.
Jackson now leads 42-30 with around 3:30 to go in the third. Timeout Notre Dame.
Jackson leads 47-40 after three quarters. Indians were outscored 19-7 in that quarter.
Does ND have a realistic chance to win?
They just hit a three followed by a steal getting it down to 47-45.
If Jackson blows this one, I think I may know the answer to your question, Bulletman.
Notre Dame leads 51-50 with 5:50 to go.
Of course Todd BS Bonacki tries to make it sound even greater by saying Notre Dame hasn't led all game. As you can obviously see at the top, they led 6-4 in the first quarter.
You're right sideline...They have big expectations this year...They will be shocked to get beat by a bunch of sophmores...
Wow, Jackson seems to underachieve and get outcoached every year.
We are tied 54-54 with 2:10 to go. Karson King held to one point in second half so far.
What station are the games on?
I've got the ND game on KGIR 1220 AM, redhawk. Not sure on the other games yet.
Notre Dame leads 59-56 with 1:30 or so to go. Timeout Jackson.
Poythress is from Jackson! Nice recruit by the Bulldogs..
Wow. Jackson gets fouled and makes the shot but foul was called on the floor. That could be a gamechanger. Notre Dame leads 59-56 with 47 seconds to go.
Notre Dame leads 63-59 with 20 seconds to go.
Notre Dame wins 64-59 over Jackson. Poythress and Barber led the charge for Notre Dame.
I'f all the games are played like this one I'm gonna spend a ton of money on popcorn.....What a come back..
If anyone wants to listen to the Sikeston-Poplar Bluff game, I found a feed online. Google KWOC Poplar Bluff. There will be a tab on the right side down a bit labeled "Listen Live". Click there. You can access the live stream on that page for both computer and smartphone.
Notre Dame loss their home opener to a talent teams. So I guess some questions were answered about them they will play to the finish and another point proven SIZE doesn't matter always determination. Congrats to Notre Dame Good Luck New Madrid an SHS tonight
Wow what a combustion! Thanks for the updates Sideline!
No problem. I will have them at least for the Sikeston-Poplar Bluff game as well.
Sideline, what times are the games Friday?
Redhawk, it will be the consolation final at 5:30, third place game at 7:00, and finals at 8:30 I believe.
Sikeston and Poplar Bluff have officially tipped off.
Did that 6'8" kid from Jackson go scoreless in the second half?
He either went scoreless or only had a couple of points Bullet. Kind of amazing after how he had his way in the first half.
Wow. Jackson was supposed to be so good!! What happened to all that height.
Sikeston leads 8-2 in the middle of the first. JT Jones with six points already.
Jackson's height started turning the ball over in the second half and maybe got tired.
Does anyone know how Central did last week at the Potosi tournament?
Central lost in the finals to St. James by one point, CTalum.
Wow 2 years ago that was such an easy tournament for us to open the season with. Was St. James any good or is Central not very good?
St. James isn't anything special. I'd say Central is just down this year. Central was only able to defeat St. Pius X in the semi-finals by four. We will know more about Central when they take on New Madrid tomorrow.
Its such a shame that all of those players left Central, they could have been really good this year.
ND still has some good players and a good program.
Sikeston leads 21-5 after the first quarter. JT Jones already has 13 points including two 3-pointers.
sikeston will have the turbo clock going in the 4th quarter for sure lol
Sikeston leads 28-5 with 7:01 to go in the second.
Sikeston's one problem in this game is that they have made a lot of silly fouls. Gotta clean that up.
The Poplar Bluff announcer has pronounced Kyland Gross as "Key-lawn Grawss" all night. Apparently, he didn't keep up with football too well.
The Delta C-7 boys basketball team leads North Pemiscot 26-18 at halftime.
Sikeston leads Poplar Bluff 43-19 at halftime. Sikeston had a really bad stretch in the mid-second quarter.
Impressive comeback by ND. Wishing I went over there now.
i said nd will suprise alot of teams this year dont take them lightly
Best thing ND had going for them tonight was Darrin Scott is Jackson's coach.
Sikeston is leading 62-37 late in the third. The defense has just gotten lazy. They should be up more.
Sikeston leads Poplar Bluff 64-37 after three quarters.
Hard to believe a team blows a 19 point lead in high school basketball with no shot clock...I don't know anything about basketball but that seems unusual..
Right bulletman I heard about a game a Shawnee last week they were down 26 with a shot clock and came back and won by 8 against a division one jucco team in there region wabash valley to remain undefeated. So high school no excuse jus do what CHS would have done stall the ball..
With Notre Dame they rise to the occasion of who they are playing. SHS Cape Jackson for sure.
Sikeston wins 78-53 but has some work to do before their next game on Thursday. They will play the winner of tomorrow's Cape Central-New Madrid County Central game. Not sure if I will be able to update the next game between Charleston and Dexter.
Delta C-7 defeats North Pemiscot 55-43.
CTalum--With Church, it's his way or the highway. He won't change to fit the talent. Just like the stud they had last year and because he tried to dunk in a game Drew sat him out..So you get what you get..
what players left cape central
Sideline, any point and rebound totals for Sikeston? It looked like JT snagged quite a few boards tonight.
I didn't get any DukePhan except that JT had over 20 points. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
Where did these players go CTalum? Like did they just quit, or transfer?
Chandler Bagley, Austin Bagley, Jake Boerboom, and Bo Wilferth are the players who are no longer on the team this year, among others who transferred or are no longer in school such as Delontre Haney and Tim Booker.
Charleston up 71-23 over Dexter with a little over a minute left in the game.
Sikeston will have to play with a much more consistent focus and intensity than they did tonight or they will blow it against Cape or NMCC Thursday.
dang sideline. you really believe that? lol
We had a disappointing effort tonight. The best word to describe it would be coasting. If you try to coast against New Madrid or Charleston this season, you're going to get run over.
I thought Sikeston worked hard and did some great things tonight. Some people are never satisfied.
Sideline, I thought Sikeston was very impressive tonight. Poplar Bluff is not all that bad of a team, esp. Gipson in the middle. PB made their runs against Sikeston's second team, mostly, and they played alot of tonight's game because the Bulldogs had such a big lead. The only concern I have for Sikeston is that they seemed to struggle whenever J.T. Jones was not on the floor.
Charleston is also an amazing team. Man can they shoot the ball! Coach Farmer didn't even press Dexter tonight and didn't have to. They did play hard-nosed man-to-man defense and forced alot of turnovers anyway. Their second string whipped our starters. Dexter came out with no intensity and not much of an effort. Their coach seemed pretty lackadiasiacal too.
From what I saw tonight, in the SEMO Conference, Sikeston and Charleston are just head and shoulders above everyone else. I truly don't think any team in the conference can play within 25 points of either team. NMCC might have the best shot. Both teams are so balanced in their scoring and play such good defense and are unbelievably quick and fast. Also, they don't turn the ball over much and neither team fouls all that much, esp. the Bluejays.
Jackson played a good first half and ND played a terrible half. The Indians collapse in the 2nd half was a strange sight to behold. It's like they thought with a 19-point lead, all they had to do to win was just show up for the 2nd half. ND's Polythress started hitting threes, they turned up the defensive intensity, and Jackson just fell apart. Their coach did them no favors either, as he sat their big man, Lueders, for most of the 4th quarter. He had played a great game off the bench up til that point. One other point I will make is that the officiating in that game was just atrocious and most of the critical calls went against Jackson. The officiating in the other two games was very good on the other hand.
That's my thoughts for the first night at the SEMO Conference Tourney. I hope to be back Friday night for what will undoubtedly be a Charleston-Sikeston final and a great, great game.
The boys were leading 28-5 one minute into the second quarter. They played 50-48 after that against a team they clearly outmatched. If that isn't coasting, I don't know what is. Part of the credit goes to Poplar Bluff for playing tough. However, I know I'm not the only person who was disappointed with tonight's performance. I know how good this team is and what they can do. Tonight was nowhere near their best effort and if they aren't giving their best effort every night, they aren't going to be able to achieve the goal the team has set for themselves.
There is no one on this website who speaks up for and in support of Sikeston as much as I do. However, I'm not blind. I've seen these guys in the past and been around this team enough to know when they are coasting and not going all out and tonight was one of those nights.
Sideline, Sikeston maintained a 25 point lead all game long. From what I saw in person tonight, they didn't look like they were coasting. Sikeston played their second string for most of the second half and nearly all of the 4th quarter. Had Holifield played his starters the whole game, there's no doubt the Bulldogs would've won by 40 points. As I said, Bluff is not all that bad, just not in Sikeston's class.
Coasting....that shocks me that your would say that. The kids played hard and the subs played most of second half. Holifield didn't even press in the fourth quarter because he was a gentleman and didn't run the score up. We're you even at the game? Don't get too negative because it was basically a blowout.
Preach, we are going to have to disagree on this one my friend.
We'll let it go. You two disagree with me. It's ok. I just didn't like the effort tonight.
Sideline, you must not have watched the same game I did .
Not a problem Sideline. Honest disagreement and healthy debate is a good thing. As I said before, the only concern I had with Sikeston is that they were not as good without J.T. on the floor. If Jones gets in foul trouble, the Bulldogs could be in trouble against Charleston.
Nice comeback by ND, but to put it in perspective 75% of their points came on turnovers by about the slowest team ive seen in awhile, jaxon has no guard play. And poythress is the only nd outside threat. Look for a bluejay turboclock on thursday, at least a win by over 20pts is a guarantee. The bluejays remind me of sikeston 2 years ago. They stand a great chance of running the table this year. Look for the jays to beat my reddawgz by at least ten on fri nite. No offense to my dawgz but charleston looks pretty special this year!!
Sadly, I'm starting to get the same hunch as you cirithungol17. We've got a shot to beat Charleston but we have to be on our A game.
I hate to lose but i think the jays would be a threat to win class 5 this year!! So that means our dawgz are still a fantastic team even if the jays prove to be a bit better! It is amazing how much talent there is here in the charleston/sikeston/scc metroplex!!
Cirithungol17, from what I saw tonight, I have to agree with you. But still, there's just no excuse for Jackson blowing a 19 point lead. I thought their point guard Daume had moments where he played well, but for the most part he had a bad game, esp. in the 2nd half.
I thought two of ND's best players tonight came off the bench, the little guard Williamson (#20) and the forward Barber (#34). Why they don't start is beyond me. Still, I agree with you that Charleston is going to blow them out on Thursday night. I also give them the nod at the moment over Sikeston, but that is going to be a great game.
Preach, check your email.
Agreed preach!! Fri nite will be a wild trackmeet no doubt. With highschool kids its impossible to know what the outcome will be but one thing for sure is the intensity will be at a max!!
First thing in the morning Sideline when I get to my study.
Williamson's brother starts and was the better ball handler.
You all have to remember that we heard the point guard from Jackson was the BEST to EVER play in the area...EVER!!! Great kid from great family but average at basketball
Guys, I have to go with sideline on this one. I guarantee you that I am as big a Sikeston homer as anyone on here. I have an inkling that Coach wasn't pleased with the effort in the second half...just a hunch. Anyway, the Dogs just need to put it together for 4 quarters. They will be just fine.
Congrats to noter dame for that comeback over jackson
I won't count New Madrid out. It's been SHS an CHS in the finals since it went from Sikeston Invitational to Semo Conference. The guys played really well against some good teams at the riverbed and Day is gonna coach till the end. JT has really matured for SHS. Between that match up SHS would have to play whole hearted all 4 quarters. New Madrid has players that have speed an r well conditioned and can give SHS more of a challenge than last year. Still early Cape may win but I don't see it.. But I think charleston will win This year they have great guard good post an Danny who Always pulls some kinda magic with his group.Sikeston bench will have to step up an play consistent to help with a win They didn't look ten deep last night..
Let me guess stlfan38, you sat on the opposite side of Sikeston's bench stuffing your chubby face with popcorn and you still didn't see Sikeston going 10 deep? Readjust those bifocal's dude!!!
good point sweet chucky
This is my opinion but Sikeston makes some silly fouls, they need to work on the rebounds. 2nd 5 needs a little work. My favorite player is Kyland Gross he worked his butt off last nite.
I don't want to put words in anyone's mouth, but I believe he was implying Sikeston can't expect to go 10 deep against legit competition. In this case, playing 10 kids doesn't make you 10 deep.
For anyone worried about Cape, I have seen them play twice, they won't beat anyone that is even close to decent, not sure what's goin on down there, but they aren't good.
Captain, stlfan could say all good stuff and some will still find things wrong with what he says
That was a way 2fight back for ND last night..They never gave up..That showed alot of heart and character esp. for a very young line up(4soph.1jr)coming back from 19down..That's semo conference for you..Expect the unexpected..I like J.T from Sikeston he has played great so far this season..Sikeston could very well win class4 this year with Madison prep(formerly Imagine Prep) moving to class3.If their bench can step up and help out alot more..On the other hand My Bluejays look great a repeat is possible..The boys shoot the ball extremely well like last year almost..With a deep bench like Sikeston had a couple years ago..If Charleston stays focused..It could be another 89'90' season 33-0..
Rings...for once, I agree with you. Charleston looks VERY GOOD. They could be undefeated, no doubt. Also, Sikeston looks REALLY GOOD. Their 2nd 5 will need to step it up a little, but I fully expect that to happen. Both teams look to be serious contenders in their respective class.
Ur jays are fun to watch, rings! Anybody can score from anywhere and i saw no selfishness at all lasnite, just a well-oiled machine. I have no doubt if they can avoid a letdown 30-0 is a good bet!
Thanks,Rocket..Too bad we won't agree on the finals..That's if both teams make it..Best of luck until then..
Thanks,Cirithungol17..Im very proud of those guys..Would love to hang another undefeated Hall of Fame Banner @ the Nest..12 is a good #..
Coach Scott's Jackson teams have become known to blow leads in the second half due to being out of shape. Last year they could handle the pressure defense in the first half but not as well as they tired in the second half when the big guys would stand around too much and not help out on the pressure. Last year the only ones not to drop off in the second half were the sophomore cross country runners Daume, Lysell and King. Did this this team not focus on conditioning this summer when this has been their achilles heel the past few years? Do they scrimmage full court or half in the summer? They better work on not just breaking the press but scoring out of it or it will be more of the same from pressure defense teams like Sikeston, Charleston, and others.
Conditioning may have been part of the reason for Jackson's 2nd half collapse, Prof. But for whatever reason, they just couldn't handle it when ND stepped up the defensive pressure. As I said earlier, their coach did them no favors either by keeping Lueders on the bench for most of the 4th qtr. ND had no answer for him in the first half.
First of sweet chuck I don't wear glasses maybe you need some.. Now sideline can say the dogs were lack on defense an u say nothing I say that the bench will have to help the starters u wanna get bent out of shape.every game is different every team will have good games an lack games. How you play a mediocre team is how you will play a great team. So if SHS only scores to more points than PB n the second half bench or not they can't do that against CHS r New Madrid. You need to take Valium literally. You dont know me and I don't care to know you. I call it like I see it you don't like what I say dont read it. Like your coach said n a interview they have to play team ball.... something at times they shyed away from last year in my opinion..
TFA your great I don't let things get under my skin.I say it like I see it.I'm not on a forum to make friends nor enemies jus read others views an express my own..
For anyone staying home tonight wanting to keep tabs on games, Semo Sports Zone will have a live video webcast of the Kennett-Caruthersville game and KGIR 1220 AM will have an online radio broadcast of the Cape Central-New Madrid game. I'll provide updates for both games as I can on this thread.
Captain your correct. Playing 10 guys doesn't make you a ten deep team. SHS championship team was hands down 10 deep. The five coming in played just as well or even better than the starters. Sikeston may play 10 guys but it won't be in a tight situation because from the PB game the the second five didn't play consistent. They will get better I'm sure with work. That state team was hands down the best along with your undefeated jays teams... Rings..
Also, the SEMO/Mizzou video feed will be available on www.espn3.com starting at 7CT

Give us updates on the NMCC/Cape game
Sideline, do you have a link to the Cape/NMCC feed?
DukePhan, I have the KGIR live stream up but it is still on ESPN Radio right now. I thought they did Cape basketball but I'm starting to think they may not in which case we may be out of luck.
So apparently KGIR only does the Cape Central football games. KAPE 1550 AM 100.3 FM does the basketball games. They do not have an online stream. Only regular radio so I will not be able to provide updates. The lack of online radio streams in Southeast Missouri is absolutely infuriating.
At the half, Oran leads Risco 44-19.
Semo is leading Mizzou 31-27.

Pressey could have shot an uncontested layup and the refs would have called a foul. Bowers could have been at half court and still get an offensive rebound. Sometimes it just goes that way.

Good win for kennett , both teams had lots of fouls , both teams sloppy passing, and a little careless with the ball. Monroe was his usual talented self and mitchell played well. Good game . No cheating, no football legs just a hard faught game by both.
Congrats to Central. Go to college in STL so can't see many games, hopefully I can see them play this weekend...And Bullet I had the chance to play with Capes freshman during an open gym this summer, the kid has some promise that's for sure, he will be great for the future of Central if he stays all 4 years.
Sounds like cape pulled it together tonight. They've got a solid group of kids, they're just young and inexperienced. If everybody is eligible for second semester they could 3 peat in districts. They have another guard, Central (sp) Blackman, who can play if his grades are up. The kid is a 6'0" solid guard who can just play ball. I'm not too optimistic about Thursday; it'll be the first time the majority of the team has faced that though of pressure, but anything can happen. It's going to be interesting to see how the season plays out.
Great game tonight between C'ville and Kennett. I didn't appreciate some of the no calls for Kennett though! Can't wait to play Kennett again!
How is it that Cape always has kids that aren't eligible or allowed to play until second semester? No other school seems to have this problem like they do.
Text sponsored by Dustin Ward... Drawmules is the man!!!
I would like to think that Kennett and C'vill would both improve their sloppy games as the season goes on. C'ville players are quick! Who was it that turned a finger to the eye into an elbow to the face?
Portageville beat cooter 99-24...
It was a hard fought game last night. No excuses here. Both teams played hard. A few bad calls but Cville still had their chances to win. None that cost them the game. I have a feeling these two will see each other again at Conference time. Grats to Kennett on their win.
Sideline---Regardless of what many of the folks think, Cape is a very tough academic school..Not saying Sikeston isn't but all I know is Cape...They have had several merit scholarship award winners the last few years..If I'm not mistaken they have had the most in the state. Kids really struggle to make the grades but hey, at the end of the day that's what's all about.
Cheese, the style of play looked alot like your last years team, this new coach may be ok afterall. I thought they played well for early in the season how do you guys feel about him so far?
Bulletman, first game of the season for me last night, sorry I wasn't on my A game.
Whitey--You lost me on that one?
It's very similar. I think the kids are still adjusting to his coaching style though. I think he will turn out okay.
Well everytime I watch monroe play I cant help but hope that Jimmy jackson is working pinkel to sign monroe. He sure would look good on the football field at mizzou.
I'm hoping he goes with Mizzou as well.
Monroe to MIZZOU is fine with me.
darn where did ronnie go,i see no post from him lol
Do you miss me kmasters?

Didn't pb win
Yes beat New Madrid .. Big E
Anyone know sikeston/cape central score
I think cape is getting beat 28-7 and no this isnt football
Sikeston is up by 23 with 3:00 to play in the first half. JT Jones just hit an NBA trey.
Sikeston leads Cape 36-17 at halftime. Cape made a little run at the end of the 2nd qtr. to trim Sikeston's 24-point lead to 19.
What was the final score of the PB-NMCC game?
This post sponsored by "The Onion"... PB calculated 61 points while NMCC was only able to calculate 59.
JT Jones is proving to be better than Jamal Cox.
Thanks Larry. Anybody know how the Caruthersville-Senath game turned out?
Cville won 96-58 if I remember correctly.
Thanks Cheesehead. Have you moved to Dudley yet?
Np Preach! Nope
Just wondered if you might be at the BEC on Tuesday night for the Jackson-Dexter game if you had moved already.
Siketon over Cape 48-31 at the end of the 3rd qtr.
Cape on a 6-0 run to start the 4th qtr. The lead is down to 11 with about 6:00 left in the game.
Sikeston leads Cape 53-43 in the 4th qtr. with 4:25 left in the game. The Tigers have really outplayed the Bulldogs in the 2nd half.
Sikeston as I beleive Sideline Starter said the other night when they beat Dexter isnt real impressive, in a full game.
Lost the feed! But back-on now. Sikeston now leads Cape 57-45 with 1:29 left in the game.
Yes Scott it will be a long night against CHS tomorrow.SHS starts well but kinda collapses in the second.It's still early in the season they will have to work on that. My statement confirmed they are not ten deep. Yes they rotate ten guys at times but tonight the starters had to dig deep against a struggling Cape program.Looks like the Jays will be smiling on the sports page of the Standard Democrat Sunday issue.
Wha's the final score from the sikeston game didn't make it tonight had college final today but will be there tomorrow
Final score Sikeston 61, Cape 52. The Tigers got as close as 9 points, but just too deep a hole to get out of. Silly fouls and turnovers really hurt the Bulldogs tonight. Kudos to Cape for continuing to play hard and get back in the game.
JT Jones was the hero tonight for Sikeston. They don't win tonight without him playing as well as he did. He led all scorers with 27 points.
Did sikeston press the whole game, and if so did central make alot of adjustments or was it all due to bulldogs getting a little sloppy? Just curious cause usually once sikeston gets their foot on the throat its hard to get loose.
Anybody remember my thought on Monday about coasting? It reared its ugly head again tonight. Sikeston is much better than the score indicates. They just have to keep their head in it once they get up. I may be the only one but I'm not quite ready to crown Charleston yet. If Sikeston plays with the intensity and focus they did in the first for four quarters, things can still be interesting. They just can't start coasting!
But that intensity in the first quarter you seen is how Charleston plays all four quarters. Not counting sikeston out because it should be a well fought game by both of these impressive teams but I'm still leaning towards Charleston for the championship.
Sikeston pulled off the press in the second half, but I'm not sure when. I know it was most if not all of the fourth quarter.
The intensity I saw disappeared when the lead grew manageable. There won't be a huge lead for either team tomorrow. Thus, I don't see the intensity wearing down early.
I'm with Sideline. If tonight's first quarter team shows up for all four quarters tomorrow night, then I believe Sikeston can win the game. It should be a great game to watch.
I only watched part of the first period of the Sikeston-Cape game and what I saw was that Cape has no shooters. For the most part, they handled the press fairly well, just couldn't put the ball in the hole once they got it down the court; and, it wasn't due to the Sikeston pressure, several were wide open shots and they were just throwing up bricks.
Cape didn't hardly have any open looks any where on the court in the first quarter, and it was because of Sikeston's D. I would like to see Sikeston keep that intensity for four quarters whether pressing or in the 2-3.
They used to say that about the old Mac Charleston teams. "We had some wide open looks but we couldn't make anything!".....I always reasoned that it was because when you finally do get an open shot when you are sped up from pressure defense, then you rush your shots, even if you're open. Perhaps that happened tonight with Cape Central? I bet if it was Charleston playing Cape tonight and they were missing wide open shots, it would be because of the great Charleston defense.
But thinking back, I don't remember just a ton of "wide open shots" by Cape Central. Sikeston had a BUNCH of wide open shots and they shot very poorly tonight.
Really surprised to see that sikeston had only 5 guys score.
Boy i like that JT Jones that kid is alot better than I thought, by far was best player on court tonight.
Like I said, guys, I only watched the first couple of minutes. When I got to the car and turned the radio on, Sikeston had already upped the lead to 15. I'm telling you, in the first couple of minutes, Cape got the ball down court rather easily and clanked some wide open shots. Again, watching a couple of minutes does not a game make...don't be so defensive, geeeeesh!!
Looks like that freshman guard from Central had 17 points..Not bad for a freshman in that environment.
My opinion is Sikeston played great team ball 1st half then the 2nd was alot of me ball and some team ball. For Charleston tonight it better be all team smart ball or it will be bad
Risco over Delta C-7 86-77
Word to the wise: I have a hunch folks wanting to see Sikeston-Charleston may want to show earlier than they expect. I don't know how good the seating will be once the third place game between Notre Dame and Cape Central starts. Poplar Bluff and Jackson open the night at 5:30. Post score updates all night here.
Junior high is having a dance tonight so that will cut down on a couple hundred kids and parents probably. I still recommend getting there early though. People are always left standing outside.
How many people fit in the Field House?
At its peak they could cram in 3,000 people. They don't hardly do that any more. I'd say 2,500 comfortably.
Charleston scheduled their Christmas Parade for 6:00...lots of folks are under the impression they can make both events. I think they're sadly mistaken.
Does anybody know if the games are being streamed online?
Anyone have an update?

Thanks Commodore. Suffice to say, Jackson is underachieving. Any details on the first half of the Sikeston game are appreciated!
good win for oran tonight congrats
16 point lead for sikeston
SHS played a flawless first half dont collapse they will win
Clarkton defeats the Senath-Hornersville varsity boys basketball team 60-58.

Sikeston is letting CHS make a run
thats was stupid of the ctown fan throwing a bottle onto the court
sikeston is out hustling ctown so far,
Sikeston needs to play the stall game
sikeston up 7
up 4 now 1:10 to go 64-60
yes sikeston is taking some dumb shots here late in the game
Sounds like Sikeston is taking too many ill-advised shots when they should just be holding the ball. 64-61 Sikesston with a minute left.
sikeston deserved this game they played awesome.good job to both teams
My thoughts on tonight's SEMO Conference Tourney games: Sikeston beat Charleston tonight with defense and the Jays had no answer to JT Jones on the inside. Cape Central is just better than Notre Dame, although still only 3rd best team in the conference. Jackson had yet another 2nd half collapse, as Bluff just dominated. And NMCC, what happened?
stlfan just can't stand it....going to find something negative to say. 30-0 should have played man to man. U don't think that Holifield addressed it? Maybe the moment took over and its a learning process for both teams. There are going to be mistakes made mentally and physically in this type of atmosphere and whats at stake. U just can't let your personal dig on Holifield go. No matter how good the Bulldogs do.
Anyone get a score on Chaffee at woodland
KFVS has Chaffee 65 Woodland 58.
Congratulations to Sikeston. Good job. However, we shall meet again in our 'hood next time: BEWARE! Also, you do not have to be undefeated to win a state championship as we have proven before. It would be nice if we could win state champiohships in multiple classes this year pertaining to southeastern MO.
Twin Rivers over Portageville by about 15the today at TRC.
twin rivers must be liget to play with portageville .
christmas tournament at bloomfield might be interresting this year.
South Pemiscot varsity boys defeat Dyersburg, Tenn., 51-38 Saturday.
I have been telling everybody T Rivers was Liget!
I think Hayti is legit.
Based on the talent I've seen in Hayti's program all the way to seventh grade they may be fixing to have a historic run in the next five seasons.
Its early in the season but Hayti, Bernie, Holcomb, Portageville once they get basketball legs, South Pemiscot could make some noise in 2a.
Dyersburg is not that good of a team compared to the average Semo teams. Caruthersville hammered them last year beating them by 30 I think. I'm surprised a school the size of Dyersburg can't produce a good basketball team. Still a good win for South Pem though. They are definitely moving in the right direction.
Dyersburg used to be pretty stout not that long ago. A lot of the talent has been going to a nearby school there.
