CAMERON â€” The Panama High School basketball teams entered this week's inaugural Green Valley Conference Tournament on a high note Friday night as they swept the Cameron teams at the Cameron Gym.
The Razorbacks handled the Yellowjackets 71-53 right after the Lady â€™Backs knocked off the Lady â€™Jackets 46-32.
GREENWOOD, Ark. â€” The Spiro Bulldogs basketball team took advantage of the fact that the Hillbillies from Ozark, Ark., did not have their complete team when it came to Friday afternoon's game in the H.B. Stewart Classic, since the Hillbillies played for a state football title on Saturday.
The Bulldogs proved too much for the depleted Hillbillies to post a 67-41 victory.
However, the Lady Hillbillies were able to get a win for Ozark, which downed the Spiro Lady Bulldogs 57-40.
