There is a whole lot of basketball to talk about on this week’s episode.
Brad and Dalton start by looking back at the Hotbed Classic (1:42), where Saltillo’s boys suffered a rare loss. Ripley’s boys, meanwhile, are heating up (4:23). Iverson Smith played the hero Friday at Senatobia with a game-winning heave at the buzzer, and that was followed by another big division win Tuesday versus Byhalia.
New Site’s boys, led by Ramsey Ivy, knocked off Baldwyn last week (6:34) and are rolling along at 23-2. Aberdeen’s girls are also having a strong season, and they moved one step closer to clinching a division title by beating Houston on Tuesday (8:13).
Ingomar, the Daily Journal’s No. 1 girls team, beat Spain Park (Ala.) on Saturday but then had to squeak out a two-point win against Belmont on Tuesday (9:41). Up next for the Lady Falcons is a visit from Jackson Academy this Saturday.
And while it’s still January, baseball is starting up as teams hit the practice fields this week (12:41). News broke on Monday that TCPS coach Will Lowrey will leave after this season to become athletics director at Blue Mountain College (11:51).
And finally, the guys present Athletes of the Week (13:45).
