The Undercard On a night featuring a main event between 3A/4A District 1 unbeaten boys teams, the Gravette girls grabbed a slice of the limelight in the undercard match.

The Lady Lions used sharp shooting and a huge third quarter to turn a tight game into a rout en route to a 77-50 victory against Pea Ridge, a team that entered the contest allowing an average of just 33 points per game.

Lady Bulldogs The Fayetteville girls continue to coast through the 7A-West Conference as the midway point in league play nears. The Lady Bulldogs picked up two more easy wins last week, 55-17 at home vs. Rogers Heritage and 63-36 at Springdale Har-Ber. Perhaps two of the tougher tests in the first half of 7A-West play await this week, though, as Fayetteville (18-2, 5-0 7A-West) visits Springdale High on Tuesday then hosts Van Buren on Friday. Van Buren is still undefeated in conference play and figures to be the closest challenger to a Fayetteville team which has so far proven to be just … Continue Reading ››

Bentonville won't have any problems scouting its two opponents this week as they played each other Friday night.

Bentonville closes out the first half of 7A-West Conference play with a road game Tuesday night against Rogers Heritage, then returns to Tiger Arena for a Friday night showdown with Bentonville West for the first time.

Tigers

Bentonville's boys just missed out on an opportunity to claim a share of the 7A-West lead when Har-Ber edged Fayetteville in overtime Friday night.
