It was a tough week for Rogers Heritage basketball, dropping all four games against 7A-West Conference competition.
The War Eagles (8-8 overall, 0-3 7A-West) saw a six-point lead disappear in the final 69 seconds of regulation and lost in overtime at rival Rogers High on Friday, then never got going in a loss to Fort Smith Northside on Friday.
The Grizzlies made six 3-pointers in the first half to grab an early lead, which made it tough to rally with Northside point guard Tevin Brewer at the controls, Heritage coach Tom Olsen said.
