Fayetteville Basketball This Week

The Fayetteville boys will look to carry the momentum over from last week's impressive, 67-48 win at Fort Smith Northside to open up 7A-West Conference play. The 19-point win at Kandart-Grizzly Fieldhouse was the largest margin victory for Fayetteville at FS Northside in the last 25 years, and was a complete effort as the Bulldogs shot 57 percent from the floor and held the Grizzlies to just over 30 percent. Next up is Fort Smith Southside, an opponent which seems much more dangerous after the Rebels won at Bentonville, 58-57, last Thursday. That victory for FS Southside came against the Malik … Continue Reading ››

Rogers High: The Week Ahead

Although the Rogers High Mounties and Lady Mounties have played just one 7A-West Conference game, both teams face a critical week if the season is going to extend to the post season.

Rogers hosts crosstown rival Rogers Heritage Tuesday before they travel to Fort Smith Southside Friday.

"You hate to use the word must-win early in the season," said Mounties coach Wayne Herren. "But I think it is pretty obvious that we have to find a way to win one of these games this week. It won't be the end of the season if we don't, but it will sure make it … Continue Reading ››
