"We had to travel to Marshall to make up a tournament game that was postponed because of weather conditions on Monday.  I was really proud of our boys being ready to play ball after the long trip and strange night.  This game was full of runs by both teams", said coach Russell Sturdivant.
"We jumped on the Bobcats 9-0 to start then trailed 20-17 after the first.  We won the second quarter by 17 points and they won the third quarter by eight.  It was a good high school basketball game with a lot of skilled players on both teams.  In the fourth quarter when Marshall had to guard us using man, they really struggled to contain Braden (Tanner)."
"I think our young players are getting more and more confident each game.  We will travel back to Clinton tonight to play Shirley in the finals after they mercy ruled Berryville in the semis."
