Alma girls lose to Lamar tonight. One guard from Lamar almost single handily beat them.

Looks like we will have some decent road games this year in Memphis.

Thought the same thing. I don't remember Alma basketball traveling out of state honestly. Do you? Not during regular season that is.

I am more of a Football guy but find myself following basketball more and more. Being new to the boards and these blended conferences I have found myself wondering if I'm hanging out on the right BB pages from time to time...LOL

I know Alma girls lost to Beebe last night in their 2nd game of the Pottsville tournament, but I've heard nothing on the boys game. I think they also played Beebe.

Unless this is a score reporting error, I believe Alma's boys beat Beebe 44-29. The reason I say "unless..." is because the game was reported to have happened on Friday when it happened on Saturday. I believe they just have the date wrong.

Alma girls and boys get swept at Bentonville tonight.

The girls never really could get going against Bentonville. They are too long. I see they are undefeated, have a good guard, and good size. Are they a favorite in the 7A girls?

Alma's boys played well with Bentonville for a half. Alma has three starters who are football players and I think they are still trying to get their basketball legs. The 3rd quarter killed them as they lost 43-61. Hutchison for Bentonville is a VERY good player and so is Shanks. Bentonville is a solid team. Boys could win a state tournament game depending on how tough 7A is this year.

I know Wonderview is a solid 1A team. Alma's girls are very young and inexperienced this year. Have one returning starter and she's a good one. We'll see how they mesh as conference play comes around. They've played some solid competition already. Maybe will help down the road.

Will they face Sylvan Hills or Russellville on the back side of the bracket Thursday? I missed the early game Monday.

Losing to a 1A school shouldn’t ever happen.

I can't speak to this school in particular, as I know they are just tradtionally good, but I've seen some absolutely great 1A teams. I see the classifications not mattering as much in basketball (they still matter obviously). I do agree with your premise, though.

I am starting to grow a little concerned about this year's girls team. I hope they are able to string together some wins and get on a hot streak before conference play.

Bentonville’s girls are well coached. They would probably be the 3rd best team in the West, behind VB and Fayetteville.  NLR is the cream of the crop in the central. Look for Fayetteville and NLR to square off again for the title.

Thanks 4real for the insight. Will be watching out for Bentonville this year.

Alma's boys lost in the first round of the Morrilton tournament tonight to Greenbrier. Final score was 63-57 Greenbrier.

Tonight in the losers' bracket of the Morrilton tournament, the Alma girls fall to Sylvan Hills while the Alma boys beat a home school team called the Little Rock Flames. Had to look up info about them to learn they were a home school team. I know nothing of their ability.

Pretty sure we do. From what I've seen, a good defensive team, but still trying to find their scoring after losing Corder from last year. Johnson, Jensen, Shelton, Stahler, and Wood are the main contributers, but Mann, other Jensen are getting some minutes, too. Athletic enough to defend, just haven't been able to fine tune the basketball skills yet. I do like that our boys are playing some tough competition in Tennessee to work on that.

For what it's worth that same 1A school just took Russellville out of the tournament. Wonderview is a pretty solid basketball program.

Airedalettes fall to Vilonia tonight by about 9.

The Airedales beat Vilonia 62-42. Good win for Alma boys tonight. Girls played hard against a solid Vilonia team.

Alma travels to Bartlett, TN and loses to a solid Christian Brothers team 50-57 in double OT.

Alma's girls travel out of state and beat Bartlett on their home court for their first win.
