Bentonville's Malik Monk and Fayetteville's Payton Willis squared off for the first time this season Friday night.
They are widely considered two of - if not THE - the best basketball players in the state and they didn't disappoint a sellout crowd at Bulldog Gym.
Monk, a Kentucky signee, scored 30 points and had six rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one blocked shot.
However, it wasn't enough to give the Tigers a win, as they fell to the Bulldogs 60-55.
Willis, a Vanderbilt signee, had 18 points, six rebounds and two assists for Fayetteville.
