The War Eagles (8-8 overall, 0-3 7A-West Conference) take on a Southside team that already has a win over them this season. The Rebels, who are 2-1 in the 7A-West, defeated Heritage 49-43 in the semifinals of the Arvest Hoopfest in mid-December.
The Lady War Eagles (5-11, 0-3 7A-West) and Lady Rebels will both be looking for their first 7A-West victory. However, like their male counterparts, Heritage lost to Southside earlier this season. The Lady Rebels edged the … Continue Reading ››

Balanced scoring was the key in both games. Samantha Brown, who didn't score against Heritage, led the Lady Mounties with 18 points against Southside.
"We were hard to score on, and that is our staple," Early said.
Coach Wayne Herren said heading into the week that Rogers needed at least one victory to stay in the postseason race and the Mounties did that with a thrilling 72-68 overtime win over crosstown rival Rogers Heritage. The Mounties lost at Fort Smith … Continue Reading ››
