Welcome to FearlessFriday.com! Today is Sunday, March 1st, 2015.
An exciting time for HS hoops fans and yet a nervous one for smaller schools that have the HUGE first game in Regionals. #mustWIN

Large schools finish conference play this week. We have most conference standings updated.
When 1A thru 4A District ends, we will clean the boards up with stickied threads on the top for just Regional play.
TUE 5:20 UPDATE: It appears most District tournaments are prepared to start on Wed. There is some variation on end dates. Check our .com
DISTRICT BB POSTPONEMENTS: Dardanelle, Paris, Shiloh, Dumas. Wonderview, Hackett, Lepanto,

Because the guys that came up with it are from Jonesboro. 

Kudos to them by the way.  I wish they had it when I was in high school.  Or maybe they did and they didn't invite me :)

As coach DePriest said, all of the brass is from NEA. Great facility (ASU), great staff (Prater and the Chastain Family), lots of kids (80+) and tons of scouts (48 college and pro last year).

I think most people agree that it is worth the trip to Jonesboro if you are selected.

It was in Little Rock the first four years.  Just easier to host in Jonesboro due to equipment, concessions, merchandise, volunteers, etc.

Grannis isn't found on many maps.
What does this mean?

That was a really good event this year. Well put on, and good support by the coaches.

If your son gets the opportunity, go.  Scouts were everywhere the 1st day. Very well run, great facilities, and the team coaches were great. Southeast went 3-0 in there games, team was loaded. I do think they should have tryouts, I think this would help in getting the best talent there.  Awesome time and opportunity, definitely 1st class deal.
