Keeping your head up a must in sports

February 28, 2013

We’ve all seen it happen. If you played a sport yourself, you may have done it at one time or another yourself.
It’s when a player makes a bonehead play that turns the ball over or thinks he was fouled on a shot and instead of immediately getting back on defense, he (or she) will stand there for a moment and pout before jogging back down the court.
I see it all the time on the college level. A player will be knocked down and a foul should have been called.

Bismarck wrestling team excels in state tournament

February 28, 2013

On Friday and Saturday, the Bismarck wrestling team took part in the 2013 state wrestling tournament at the Jack Stephens Center on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Bismarck was grouped with all schools from Class 1A to Class 5A and came out of the tournament with a fifth place finish behind Maumelle (first), Beebe, Central Arkansas Christian and Little Rock Christian.
The team did well as a group, but there were many individual performances that stood out for the Lions.

Lady Lions out in first round

February 28, 2013

The Bismarck Lady Lions had a monumental task in front of them in the first round of the 3A state tournament at Riverview High School in Searcy.
They had drawn Greenland, one of the best 3A girls’ teams in the state.
Bismarck gave a valiant effort, but in the end, Greenland was too much, winning the game 51-22.
A slow start led to the Lady Lions’ eventual downfall, as Bismarck scored just four points in each of the first two quarters (as well as the fourth).
At the end of the first quarter, Bismarck trailed 11-4, but were still in striking range.

Lady Panthers open state tournament with win

February 28, 2013

The Magnet Cove Lady Leopards are on a roll.
They breezed through the district tournament two weeks ago and the regional tournament last week.
Last night, they played their first game in the 2013 2A state tournament at Marmaduke High School.
As the No. 1 seed from their region, Magnet Cove was matched up against a No. 4 seed, Pangburn.
At first it appeared the Lady Panthers were going to blow out Pangburn, but the pesky No. 4 seed wouldn’t go away until the end.

Arkansas officially a bubble team now

February 22, 2013

Last night’s game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Georgia Bulldogs was not a pretty one, but the Hogs pulled out a two-point victory at home thanks once again to late-game heroics by BJ Young.
The win moves Arkansas’ record to 17-9 on the season and 8-5 in Southeastern Conference play.
I think that makes Arkansas a team on the verge of the NCAA tournament right now, even though I and many other people wrote them off as dead after the loss at Vanderbilt.
If they can continue to win their home games...
