Gene Phelps is in Jackson covering the MHSAA basketball state tournament. A handful of Northeast Mississippi teams remain in contention for a gold ball, and so today’s show is all about hoops. Gene and Brad Locke talk about Booneville’s girls winning Wednesday (1:36), tonight’s 6A semifinal tilt between the Tupelo and Starkville boys (3:36), and the championship rounds that begin Thursday (6:58). Gene also discusses the biggest surprises so far of the tournament (11:22) and the biggest performances (13:09). And of course, we have Athletes of the Week (15:10).
