Why do I love basketball so much?

November 12, 2014

I am a huge fan of the game of football, but when you get to the root of things, I am truly a basketball fan at heart.
Maybe it is because my high school didn’t have football when I was a student — and seeing them host a playoff game this week is rather surreal to me.
Growing up, it was all about basketball. I was on the kindergarten team in Wheeling, Mo. before my family moved back to Arkansas.
When we got here, I played basketball whenever I could and joined the peewee team in fourth grade.

A look at the 2014 Class 2A playoffs

November 12, 2014

For the last few years, there has been a saying in the 2A Classification — the state championship runs through Junction City.
The Dragons (8-0) are the two-time defending state champions and have won four titles since 2008. Currently, Junction City is riding a 35-game winning streak and will be a problem for any team with aspirations on a deep trip in the playoffs in the upper part of the bracket.
Two teams from this area — the Poyen Indians and the Magnet Cove Panthers — will look to make their own marks in this year’s field of 30 teams.
