1. Risco plays in the Martin Luther King, Jr., Shoot-Out in Meridian, IL. I was unable to find out who they play, but the other five teams are Meridian, Egyptian, Agape Christian, ESL Lovejoy, and Century. Can someone from Risco tell us who the Tigers will be playing?
Anyone have a scouting report on ESL Lovejoy?
Never heard of them before Dustin. Do you know who Risco is playing and what time the game is?
Couple of tough road challenges for Leopold this week could really define their season after hitting a rough patch at the Xmas tournament
Also, is there any other notable matchups in the Hardaway Hoopfest?
Earle had to postpone their game with Cville tonight!
Any idea why Cheesehead? Or when it will be re-scheduled?
Last I heard it will be re-scheduled. Not sure on why though.
Also, does anyone know when the Kennett-Poplar Bluff game has been re-scheduled for?
Dons and PB should be a good game .Dons have to be on there A game to win. PB is the favorite to win .
Article on the Penny Hardaway Hoopfest featuring the No.1-ranked team in the entire nation, Findlay Prep from Henderson, Nev.
Chaffee hosts Advance Tuesday night. We gave them a great game until mid 3rd when our kids got gassed.. hopefully we're in a little better shape.
I wish the Risco vs Clarkton game (aka The Hatfield's and McCoy's)was tonight. I can't go tomorrow. The battle of the worst fans in Southeast Missouri is always exciting. You never know what crazy thing will happen. Bring a video recorder if you go and have it ready.
Who ever wrote that article regarding the Penny Hardaway Hoop Fest is lazy. Charleston is not the number one team in Missouri, they aren't even the number one team in Class 3.
SC won't have Sanders tonite vs Portageville. He suffered a broken nose/concussion Friday night in the Chaffee game.
First of all paulm, you do not know what you are talking about when you say clkarkton has the worst fans. Not one clarkton fan has been thrown out or even warned by a referee this season, so when you dont know what you are talking about, cease to comment. There is a difference between bad fans and passionate fans. Clarkton and risco both have passionate fans, do they go overboard sometimes? Yes, but that is wher the passion comes in play. At least they do show up for the games, home and away. I have seen a lot of schools in this area play in front of empty seats, so save your negative comment and thank you to all of the clarkton and risco faithful for supporting your school atheletic programs, huaaaah!!!!!!
Findley prep isn't #1 in nation either it's montverde academy they were on espn Saturday night playing against Simeon
Yaeger, just to give you a little insight on National Rankings. It depends on the list you look at because according to this link, Findlay Prep is Number 1 as of this morning. I will agree with you that Montverde Academy had #1 next to their name against Simeon.
Hey Sikeston got a best of the rest shout out in that USA Today Top 25 poll. I got to admit that makes me smile.
I don't see any other Missouri team on the list so maybe USA Today thinks Sikeston is the best team in the state? I'm not saying I agree but that is always a good honor to get a little national publicity. Doesn't change the fact that overcoming Maplewood this Friday is going to be a monumental task.
Most definitely Maplewood is a tough team. I can't wait for the game actually.
It'll be a fun game to go to Bunk.
Question is will you be there Sideline?
Bunk, I will be there Friday night. Then I'm going to drive down south the next day and watch MIZZOU shred Ole Miss.
Oh I wish I could go down to the Ole Miss/ Mizzou game but I don't think I will have time.
I'll be there. I'm skipping the Ole Miss/Mizzou game to be there. Rocketsblo is still upset that I am better at trash talking than he is.
You hurt my feelings with your rant kdjones. Most of your fans are passionate, but also just out and out goofy. It's comical to see some the things they do and the crazy things they get upset about. Not good fans at all. Sorry.
Bama-24 ND 10
Who ya got?
Not only did Clarkton have the best player in the Tri-County last year, now they have a "passionate" fan base. (Clarkton fans can defend or debate their reputation all they want, but it will take years of exemplary behavior to shed their deserved reputation.)
No sideline sharter, I never said you were better; I just said that your comment hurt. From my pain shall rise the greatest trash talking ever.
My, my, so quick to call people names. There are lots of polls.
It is what it is, but Charleston is nowhere near the fourth overall team in state, these websites have become a joke. Good ballclub, but i can name ten teams of top of my head that would easily beat them.
Scott, tell me about Madison IL
Who are the top 4 teams in the state. I guess you agree with the other 3? Only wrong on ctown?
Nixa Sikeston Hazelwood Central Madison prep
Yes. I was using the official postal abbreviations.
So you are saying Charleston is nowhere near as good as Sikeston or Madison Prep? So Sikeston wins the Rivary game by 20/30 pts.
all of you on here talking about clarkton fans must love clarkton fans, because if you are talking about them, you are thinking about them, so there is something about clarkton that keeps you wannabees amazed.
Richland defeats Woodland 74-49.
I do not think Charleston is as good as Sikeston, I mean they have played and IMO Sikeston pretty much was the better team clearly.
Also Madison Prep would handle Charleston quite easily from what I have seen.
You said " Charleston is nowhere near the fourth overall team in state, these websites have become a joke". Then you say Sikeston is a top 4 team. You may be right, we will soon see.
In fairness, maxpreps uses an algorithm and the win for charleston over Little Rock boosts their ranking.
Stlscott is there any new contributors to Madison Prep that weren't on Imagine last year? I know Payne and Baker are still there and major keys.
They have another really good ballplayer semo501 i am on road and I cannot remember his name, their guard play is very good, and Swish the N little rock team wasnt at full strength when Charleston beat them.
The box score from Charleston/Sikeston :
School Name Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Final
Sikeston 16 20 10 25 71
Charleston 15 8 12 26 61
This is not IMO. But facts and on Sikeston's home floor. Maybe Sikeston just had a bad night and Charleston overachieved.
Sikeston is an extremely athletic team and they are deeper than Charleston. JT presents the biggest problem for the Jays and they must put more pressure on the ball to make entry passes tougher. Parham is capable of shutting Ruffin down. Then it comes down to other kids making plays. Both teams have players that can "show up" and I think that is what it comes down to. The next game could go either way and I am not putting my house on either team. Others seem quite a bit more confident.
The Sikeston faithful are not the ones feeling overconfident towards our team. We more than recognize the threat Charleston is. However, it is down the road as we have our hands full this week with Fredericktown on Tuesday and Maplewood on Friday.
That was not my point. I was simply explaining maxpreps system. But since you brought it up I will do some research. Maybe they have more than the 2 all-staters that were at New Madrid.
Good point sideline. This all started with my post about the Penny Hoopfest. My responses were towards Scott's comments. I can not resist an engaging exchange. : ) Believe me - Charleston has their hands FULL in the mean time. Both teams will be better at the next meeting.
Scott, who were the players from NLR that where not there?
kdjones....I do love Clarkton fans! They are very entertaining. It's the Jerry Springer show in real life.
Swish I believe they were without Gary Vines, Cameron Williams, Terrance Francis, and Juan Day. 3 seniors and 1 junior.
Juan Day just signed to play football at the University of Arkansas. That's really all I know about those young men
And he is only a junior right!? That's pretty impressive!!
That's correct Buck, must be a heck of an athlete to play running back in the SEC. But getting back on topic, I've never seen MRH play. What kind of style do they play? Notable personnel?
Thoughts on tonight's key games? In other words, "bump"!
I think Bernie and Caruthersville will have a very good game tonight! I think Caruthersville will edge them out in the end though. They are really playing better now. Defense has improved since the beginning of the season. Everyone pretty much know their roles and it's starting to show in game play. I still like to see us shoot better and our rebounding has to improve but overall, this team is really playing much better.
It will definitely be a big test for Bernie Cheesehead.
I agree but also a very big test for Caruthersville as well. Bernie is a top notch program with great coaching and good kids. Should be a great game.
Caruthersville has the edge in athlesticism and speed. They also have home court advantage. Bernie has better shooters, depth, and discipline. I also have to give them the edge in coaching. Defense will really be key here I think. Also, if Bernie has a lead late in the game, I think they're better FT shooters, so if the Tigers are forced to foul, that could play into Bernie's hands. I agree it should be a great game!
Caruthersville has home court as far as playing in their gym. Fan base, not so much. The majority of the fans that show up are the students. The basketball team really doesn't get supported like our football team does. Most of the fans that go are either parents, boosters, or a very few true fans of Caruthersville sports. It's just the way it is at Caruthersville.
Unfortunately, Bernie doesn't have a lot of students that attend the games. However, the adults usually show up and usually travel with the team. Looking forward to the game tonight.
I get the feeling that C'ville will win this one tonight. Monroe might get 25 rebounds as well. It can go either way, but if Caruthersville can stay down and defend the multitude of set plays from Bernie, they can take advantage with their athletic ability. I haven't seen C'ville in awhile, they playing mostly zone defense? Have to get to those Bernie shooters!
Hope Monroe gets in foul trouble early. I am a bernie fan but they cannot shoot free throws from what i've seen. They have played some close games that they should have easily won by 8-10 but they cannot convert the 1 and 1.
Cville's jv leads at half 26-24
any updates on bernie/cville
Cville jv won 49-46
Here at the ND-SV game about to tip off, hoping for a tad bit closer than the jv game!!
NMCC JV defeats charleston JV 68-61.
After 1st cville up on Bernie 18-10
Not off to a good start, nothing overly impressive defensively by ND, just lazy passing
Cville up at half 36-27
22-4 after the 1st, came out and closed it down to 22-10. Then let it get away again before putting in a couple buckets to make it 31-14. Once we settled down and realized its just another game we've been fine. Doesn't hurt that ND is struggling from 3 though
NMCC down 18-14 after the 1st.
35-22 ND refs are horrid though. I'm usually impartial. But this is home cooking to a new level
Text sponsored by First National Bank. The Kennett varsity boys lead Hayti 34-33 at halftime.
Mishow at this game ill be very interested to see how this will be written
Cville after 3rd. 55-42
Risco 90 clarkton 67
Charleston up 31-22 at half.
This game will not get within 10 because the boys in Black and white refuse to. And it very well should be within 10. 44-27 ND end of 3
Any Sikeston updates?
Chaminade beats Desmet on Buzzer beating 3 by Jayson Tatum, big upset, and this Tatum could is gonna be on the Hughes, Beal Level, wow.
Sikeston wins 74-42. Didn't listen but for the end. Kelly Campbell said the Bulldogs were a little sloppy.
Cville over Bernie 76-54
Did Bernie had a bad game? Or Cville just better?
have a bad game*
Bernie had a terrible game and caruthersville betr than people are giving them credit for.
This game got ugly final score not indicative, neutral(refs) court this is a 8-15 point loss which I'm fine with. Problem is it wasn't and ya gotta play through it. We'll be fine
Text sponsored by First National Bank. The Hayti varsity boys lead Kennett 53-49 at the end of the third quarter.
Caruthersville's defense caused trouble for Bernie all night. Caruthersville is really starting to play better at this point in the season. If they keep this up, they could contend for District this year.
The only problem I seen from Caruthersville tonight is a lot of under the basket shots missed that Gooden usually makes and getting lazy on the transition end of defense after they score. Jamal and Steve have definitely entered their names into the mix on the best duo guards in SEMO. They hardly get any rest less than a min per quarter and can handle the rock and penetrate and score, their defense is not to shabby either. This team lacks depth and that will hurt them against really deep teams. We have finally found the right combo on defense to get up early and fend off comebacks which hurt us earlier in the season.
Kennett wins 76-67
I can't wait for Charleston/Dyer County Thursday night. Will be there for that one.
Dexter over Bloomfield 52-48. Another really good defensive effort from the Bearcats. And Potts is coming along as a post player.
Mitchell had 28, primer had 17 not sure about the rest of team
Text sponsored by First National Bank. The Kennett varsity boys defeated Hayti 76-67.
Kinda late Dustin lol.
Off subject but watching the Gtown game and somebody posted a few weeks back that if Porter got selected in top ten that it was crazy, I am really starting to agree, he isnt really anywhere near that level IMO.
Hi-jack Alert! Hi-jack Alert!
Don't act surprised Preach lol. You know how it is on Semoball lol.
Just having a little fun Cheese. Lol.
Im sorry I wasnt really interested in who won the caruthersville bernie game or the dexter game.
Well some of us are stlscott.
Charleston over NMCC 72-57. Willie Jimerson fouled out with 11 points. Sounds like another stellar defensive performance from the Jays.
Big win for cville, cheese sounds like you are right that they are putting things together at the right time. Caruthers a freshman for kennett finally got his first game under his belt after rehabing a football hip injury scored 7 points and played well in varsity game , he will help alot for coach vaughan. Good games tonight!
Squawdad, was Taylor able to play for Kennett tonight?
I dont believe so
Twin rivers beat Greenville 86-26.
Larry, do you have a final from Zalma?
Bernie played without Sam Turner tonight which hurt us rebounding. Caruthersville played really well. Hats off to them.
who cares about zalma i'm just guessing they lost delta beat them, that's all I need to know
Oran 78 Zalma 44
I'm not sure what was going on earlier in the year with cville but it sure wasn't tonight. they played great.
Cape Central with a nice win tonight on the road at Pacific 48-39.
Holcomb defeats Southland boys 85-20.
Clearwater beats neelyville 82-64 wasn't really that close running clock to start the 4th before subs!
Poplar bluff wins 72-60 over doniphan patterson had 21!
Does anyone have a final on the Leopold-Oak Ridge game?
How about thayer and Eminence?
I have my answer. Leopold dominated Oak Ridge once again 69-42. That definitely makes them the team to beat in Class 1, District 2.
Other scores from Tuesday night:
1. Notre Dame 67, St. Vincent 32.
2. Advance 75, Chaffee 62.
3. Scott City 66, Delta 49.
4. Valle Catholic 62, Saxony Lutheran 53.
Anyone have Senath-Hornersville / Malden score?
I agree preach they really have oak ridge's number!And if scc doesn't get it together looks like they will roll into a game against Eminence or South Iron for a trip to columbia.Since they dominated Risco the way they did!
I totally agree porchswing. Right now Leopold looks like a lock to get to the quarterfinals.
Speaking of SCC, anybody have a final on their game with East Prairie? I'm sure they won, just don't know by how much.
SCC won 98-61
Leopold won over Oak Ridge 69-42.
BBfanatic-I think most of it was they were adjusting to a new coach. I think they found the right combination on the floor and it's starting to work. They are still not where they should be but they definitely are improving every game. Hayti will be a good test for them Friday night. That's a huge rivalry and anyone that knows this rivalry knows, anyone can win, regardless of who the favorite is.
Bernie's JV is VERY good. Probably the best one I've seen this year. Bernie jumped out to a 19-8 lead on us early. I think it was #12 for your JV that went out with a concussion? I think it could have been a different game had he stayed in for the whole game. Him and the other guard were very good. #11 on JV was impressive as well. Bernie's future is bright that's for sure. By the way, how is that kid doing that got hurt?
I have always said that I really believe next year will be a great year for Bernie but I do believe they can win this year too now that I have seen all the class 2 teams play. The Kid on Jv is Brandon and I believe he is fine. He is a very good player that shoots the ball well. I have not seen Bernie varsity play like they did last night in along time but that happens and Caruthersville played really good to cause alot of it. I agree with you that they will be hard to deal with and may win District if they keep that kind of play up.
C'water plays Van Buren Friday, do you know if they are any good? C'water beat Neelyville pretty easily last night.
Caruthersville played a heck of a game last night. They forced way too many turnovers by the Mules. Congrats on the win.
I thought the bright spot for the Bernie Varsity last night was the play of Joey Walker (#40). He also had a good game against Advance last week. For a kid that doesn't usually start and doesn't always get a lot of playing time, he has been pretty solid when the coaches call upon him this year.
Tooldogging, I don't think Clearwater will have any more problem with Van Buren than they had with Neelyville. BTW, what was the final of that game?
Smith has went head to head against Bernie like 7 times in the past two years at Puxico. They were in three tournaments together and in the same conference. Did you notice that Smith had his team play man to man the entire game? He is a 2-2-1 back to 23 coach 99% of the time. Just maybe, Smith had a good game plan against Bernie. They did not allow Bernie to play to their strenghts, which is running an offense and being very smart at decision making. Caruthersville forced Bernie to dribble like mad man. Just a thought.
Bernie is a very good team. My opinion, it wasn't that they played bad, it's that Caruthersville played very well and had a good game plan. Caruthersville JV beat a very good Bernie JV team.
Buy a ticket and have your cell phone in the stands to give updates don't make you an expert.
Don't underestimate that Tiger Pride, especially when your not from Caruthersville. You wouldn't know anything about it. It can be a force.
Hats off to Bernie. They are a very good team and very well coached.
Just learned that Risco will play Egyptian in the MLK, Jr. Shoot-Out. Tip-time is 6 p.m. at Meridian High School in Meridian, IL.
I believe it was C'water 82 Neelyville 64
I heard Caruthersville's game with Earle will be played Monday.
Also, Jackson defeated Woodland 68-23 last night. And thanks for the update on the Tigers' schedule Cheese.
The Charleston-Dyer County game tonight is at Dyer County, not Memphis, as I earlier reported. Check the "Charleston vs. Dyer County" thread for info on the web-cast at 8:30 p.m.
Anyone know the final from the Jackson-Miller Career game from earlier today?
Leopold over advance 71-60
To answer the question at the top of the thread Risco will be playing Egyptian Saturday.
Jackson beat Miller Career Academy 56-59
Cheesehead and BBfanatic....you guys were asking about the JV kid for Bernie. He has a concussion and will be out 1 to 2 weeks. Nothing serious though.
Paulm, take my word for it, a concussion is always serious.
Also, Dyer County defeated Charleston 93-76. The game was tied at 61 going into the final quarter, but Hubbs really took over the game and DC pulled away for an impressive win over the Jays.
Finally, who does Jackson play tomorrow in the LIT?
That's what I figured semo501, but didn't know for sure. Thoughts on Jackson being able to pull the upset? Get a little payback for football?
@preacher man fan .AgapeChristain isnt in the MLK classic @ Meridian. Madison,IL.
bballfan71, I got the list of teams from the Meridian high school web-site and they were listed. Did they pull out of the shoot-out?
Hey Travis, do you have an email I could reach you at?
Beef, check the web-site of the Dexter Church of Christ.
I guess you are referring to the office address?
Yes, that will reach me.
The Dexter vs. Bernie game will be broadcast live tonight on YHC-TV and www.semosportszone.com for those who are interested. Tip-time will be around 7:30 p.m.
NMCC wins the JV contest over Cape by 5. 49-45 I believe. Two good wins this week for them over Charlestin and Cape. Also with their two wins in the Malden JV tournament, which they will be playing in the championship of tomorrow. So real good week for NMCC JV team. I'm excited for when the sophomore class is all together again!
Dexter leading Bernie 16-12, end of 1st qtr.
Text sponsored by First National Bank. The Kennett varsity boys lead Senath-Hornersville 12-4 after the first quarter.
Oran leads St. Vincent 29-17 at the half.
NMCC up 15-8 after the 1st.

Sounds like real good stoddard county battle!

Dustin, who's running the point for Kennett with Drake unavailable?
Tie game headed into the 4th
Text sponsored by First National Bank. The Kennett varsity boys defeated Senath-Hornersville 60-19.
NMCC up by 5. Will they be able to put together a solid 4th quarter!?
Dexter stuns Bernie 54-53! Big upset and a huge win for the Bearcats!
2min left, up by 7.
Great win preach! Dexter seems to be on an upswing lately.
Up 4, one min left
does anyone have a score for the Portageville - South Pemiscot game and the Hayti- Caruthersville game?
Up 4, 30 secs left
WOW Dexter is the worst team in SEMO conference and they still beat Bernie but I guess they did compete!!!
Maplewood-Richmond Heights hands Sikeston their first loss of the season 70-66.
Oran defeats St Vincent 64-46.
Dexter's best effort of the year that I've seen. Bernie seemed to miss a lot of free throws. Numbers may not bear that out b/c every miss in a close game seems big.
Wow BIGELW thats the biggest back handed compliment...but a compliment noentheless...I wonder how the SCAA seedings will go now? Probably gives Advance 1st
Malden over Bloomfield 64-60 to avenge their loss to the Wildcats in the X-mas Tourney.
Also, Buck and BIGLW, Dexter is playing much better lately, esp. on defense. Also Brad Potts is quite improved in the post and Ryan Joyner is getting better too. As for Bernie, they are missing a key starter in Sam Turner who has missed the last two games with some kind of injury. But someone is going to have to step up as a scorer and help Baker and Jennings.
Kelly score anyone???
Lil Willie Jimerson hits buzzer beater 3 to win the game!!!!! Finally won a tough game in the fourth quarter. And avenged an earlier loss to a lead they let slip, and a a good cape team that got second in the Christmas tournament, and ranked ahead of them in the top 10. Good week for NMCC, played charleston well, and beat Cape.
Big win for the Eagles Buck! What was the final score?
This is why people make a big deal about school size. Dexter down and finds a way to beat Bernie!
Hit the 3 as the jungle was chanting "over-rated". That's a big "in your face" if I ever saw one.
Seems like Bernie has been missing a lot of free throws and a lot of threes lately. Shooting has got to get better. It was a pretty physical game. Dexter and Bernie always seem to compete with each other if no one else.
Final is 52-49 Preach. Yes a very good win for the Eagles.
hs-sports, as the old saying goes, with Dexter and Bernie, you can throw out the records. School size too. It's always going to be a close game between these two big rivals.
I'm a Bernie fan and am at a loss of words. Hats off to Dexter they took it right to Bernie. And yes Bernie is horrible at the free throw line, and tonight everywhere else.
Buck, any synopsis of the game?
Yaeger, what's been wrong with Sam Turner?
Sounds like a great game to watch! Must have been fun!
Sam Turner missed practices for FFA functions and they are not allowed to play sometimes in these instances.
Ok thanks for the update BBfanatic. I had heard he was injured. Coach Botsch runs a tight ship and you have to respect that.
Charleston 87 SCC 64
Leopoldo over Marquand 121-41
Advance squeaks by Richland at Advance 85-77. Richland had the lead in the 4th but Advance was able to regain the lead.
Catfish, Richland seems to be really improving. I was impressed with the Grayson kid at the Bloomfield X-mas Tourney. He really gave Forshee some help scoring. Has he continued to play well for Richland?
Jackson with an impressive win today over #1 seed Rockwood Summit in the Lindbergh Invitational, 67-51. Also a little payback for football. The Indians will play for the championship tomorrow.
Also for the Kelly fan who asked earlier, they lost to Chaffee 76-45.
Finally, any updates on the Hayti-Caruthersville, South Pem-Portageville, Poplar Bluff-Twin Rivers, and Holcomb-Neelyville games?
Preacher, he has improved and Richland has played much better as a team. I thought there for a while that Richard Forshee would pull off a quad. double. It was a really good game.
Thanks Preacher Man
PB won by 24
He's not injured he is an ffa state officer and had to go somewhere tuesday and missed the game at c'ville and I'm assuming thats why he didn't play tonight. That's what I have been told by several people.
Poplar Bluff 71, Twin Rivers 47. The Mules keep rolling, demolishing a very good TR team.
I think you still have to give Bernie the #1 seed in the Stoddard County Tournament. They beat Advance head to head and have a better record. I'd be really surprised if they still don't get it.
Poplar Bluff really looks like they are really learning the system!South Iron 83-44 over greenville.
Park Hills Central defeated their big rival Ste. Gen tonight 65-50. The Rebels are on quite a roll and definitely a team to keep your eye on.
Oak Ridge defeated Zalma 73-47.
Can PB beat Jackson?
NMCC played real consistent. Not super awesome, but not bad either. Just real composed without many mistakes. One thing that was really impressive was the enery. They did not seem to get tired at all, and played hard all game. Cape also played very hard, and they never game up. You have to admire them and give them credit for battling the whole game.
In my opinion, this is a Stoddard County Tournament. Bernie and Advance each have 1 loss and Dexter is 4-0 in the Stoddard County Conference. With that being said, Dexter should get the #1 seed.
Yes redshirt they can and have already!
Hayti over c-ville 72-65
Holcomb demolished Neelyville 63-41. Portageville got a huge win over South Pemiscot 65-49. Still waiting on a Hayti-Caruthersville score. Surprised we haven't heard from Beef or Cheese on this one yet.
Also, despite the coaching confusion at Doniphan, the Dons still knocked off Naylor 53-43. A nice win for a team in turmoil. Hats off to the assistant coaches at Doniphan.
Preach do you know what is going on over at doniphan?
Just what's been reported by KFVS porchswing. Their coach has been suspended pending an investigation into his conduct. That's all I know.
How did Clearwater fare against Van Buren tonight?
Hayti over Caruthersville 72-65 in the Tigers first game without Darrell Monroe. A huge rivalry game and a big win for the Indians. From the box score on Maxpreps, Hayti jumped out to a big halftime lead and the Tigers came back in the second half, but fell short.
It was cancelled because of severe out break of the flu.I didn't know what was going on with that situation but i know on monday at the j.v. tourney he got up and left the bench and acted pretty silly like the season was really getting to him.
CatDad...I wouldn't think Dexter would get the #1 seed in the Stoddard County Tournament. You played 2 and bar-b-qued in the Chrsitmas Tournament. You lost to Puxico even though it wasn't a "conference" game. You do not deserve the #1 seed. Come on.
Porchswing, who forfeited, Clearwater or Van Buren? Or will the game be re-scheduled?
As for the seeding at the SCAA, I would still give Bernie the #1 seed, followed by Advance, Dexter, Bloomfield, Puxico, Richland, Woodland, and Bell City. Should be a fun tourney.
Not sure on either one sorry i know both will be playing in blackriver league tourney this week!
Has that tourney been seeded yet porchswing? If so, do you know what they might be?
South Iron-1,Clearwater-2,Winona-3,Vanburen-4,East carter-5,Lesterville-6,Ellington-7Bunker-8 this tourney is really top heavy to say the least.
Gotta agree with that porchswing. Looks like South Iron and Clearwater will meet for the 3rd time this season.
That would be the most likely scenario but don't rule out winona.I think the top three seeds will win thier districts you heard it here first!
Don't South Iron and Clearwater already hold lop-sided wins against Winona? What district is Winona in?
South Iron has not played Winona yet this year and clearwater beat them at Winona but it was a tied game going into the fourth before clearwater won by 12!Winona is in class 2 district 2.
Holcomb over Neelyville 64-41
Hayti over Caruthersville 72-65
Doniphan over Naylor 53-43
Delta C-7 over Cooter 61-47
Risco over Campbell 83-41
Kennett over Senath 60-19
Portageville over South Pemiscot 65-49
Malden over Bloomfield 64-60
Dexter over Bernie 57-56
Ok thanks for the clarification porchswing. Good luck to all three teams.
Jackson will play Hillcrest for the Lindbergh Invitational Tournament tomorrow night. Good luck to the Indians.
paulm--didnt mean to strike a nerve,I was just throwing my opinion out there.Your right we two and Q at the BCT thats what everybody kepts telling us.But I just wonder how many wins any of the other county schools would have had if they would have started thier schudule with Charleston,Sikeston,Charleston again,Jackson and Jackson again I'm guessing 0.Once again i think head to head ganes should go a long way in the seedings Bernie goes to Advance beats them on their home floor and the Bearcats came to the Mule Barn and win a heck of a game. To me the seeds should be 1-Dexter 2-Bernie 3-Advance 4-Bloomfield 5-Puxico 6-Richland 7-Woodland 8-Bell City.Once again to the Bearcats and Mules WHAT A GAME!!!
CatDad, I think you're seeding are probably how I would seed them. Dexter definitely moves up beating Bloomfield and Bernie this week. All of the teams will have at least one loss to another conference team. Any of those first five teams could make some noise in the county. If i'm not mistaken, puxico comes to dexter tuesday night.
Should've checked the time on that last post about Jackson. They actually play tonight for the LIT championship in St. Louis.
Jackson is coming into their own right now, that's an impressive win last night they are gonna be tough come district time.
Stlscott, what's the word on Hillcrest? Jackson is on a roll, but do they have a good shot to bring home the championship?
Hillcrest is a good ball club preacher, I think Jackson has a shot to beat them, and I say that with caution because they are very inconsistent, but they are playing good ball for sure now.
Saxony boys plays for consolation championship against Cobden Appleknuckers today in Chester, Ill. These boys sure have been improving all year and hope to get this win to roll into a tough week next week. I hope those players can "knock down some apples"
Hillcrest is an interesting team to watch. They have a ton of 6ft and under players who pressure the ball and are quick. Plus they all have a great 3pt shot. If they knock down their 3s it'll be a fun match up with the Indians.
Good luck to Jackson and Saxony today as well as Risco playing Egyptian in the MLK Jr. Shoot-Out in Meridian, IL. Saxony has a couple of really good ball-players in Lake and Bohnert.
I was very proud of Caruthersville's effort last night. Even without Darrell, they played a very tough Hayti team close. They also don't have the services of Gooden anymore. He was a great lift off the bench for the Tigers. They will have to change the way they do things a little but overall, good game by them. They got down early but clawed their way back in the game. This team won't go down easy that's for sure.
Cheesehead, how many varsity players did the Tigers have last night? Did Coach Smith move up any JV kids?
Just 4 Vasity players Preach. Our starting 5 were: Sr Steve Rogers, Jr Jamal Johnson, Soph C. Trammel, Jr Tyler Grissom, and Soph Malik Monroe. Malik moved up from JV.We had a new guy #24 play off the bench along with one of the Pittman brothers, and Jeremy Grant.
Risco 39 Egyptian 38 end of 3rd at Meridian, Ill
Risco 60 Egyptian 60 end of regulation
Risco 69 Egyptian 66 final in OT
Great win for Risco jpaawhite! Thanks for the updates.
Your welcome! Nice to win one their after a few years of getting beat up!
Anyone know the score to the Jackson game?
Saxony Lutheran 60, Cobden 39 to win the consolation championship of the Chester Invitational Tournament.
Cobden's mascot is the Appleknucklers which has to rank right up there with the Hickman Kewpies as the strangest mascots of all time.
Also, Perryville defeated Valle Catholic 83-65. Still waiting on a Jackson score. Strangely, KFVS did not cover the game even though Jackson was playing for the championship of the LIT.
Jackson lost by 20
Do you know the final score semo501?
