Here are tidbits from my notebook from Springdale High’s basketball trip to Russellville. The Lady Bulldogs won 64-51 to improve to 2-0, while the Bulldogs lost 64-51 to drop to 2-1.

GIRLS

  • Springdale was stuck in cruise control in this one for the better part of three quarters before turning it on and blowing Russellville out. The Lady Bulldogs trailed 15-13 after a quarter, led just 32-30 at halftime and trailed 40-38 midway through the third. Some of that may have had to do with the start of the game being delayed more than 30 minutes because the … Continue Reading ››

Andy Campbell and Kentrell Scott each scored 19 points to lead Russellville to a 64-51 victory Thursday night.

The Cyclones (0-2) built a lead early in the second quarter and Springdale (2-1) couldn’t catch up.

The Bulldogs struggled early to solve Russellville’s zone defense, which focused on slowing Springdale senior Chris Owens. And when they were able to get into a better flow offensively, they didn’t get stops as Campbell and Kris Patrick, who finished … Continue Reading ››

RUSSELLVILLE — Russellville led midway through the third quarter before Springdale High junior guard Kierra Lang helped wake Springdale up and led the Lady Bulldogs to a 64-51 win Tuesday night.

Lang scored nine of her 16 points during a 24-1 Springdale run spanning the latter stages of the third quarter and an early portion of the fourth. The run included 17 straight Lady Bulldog points and turned a 40-38 deficit into a big lead.

But maybe more important was Lang’s defense on Russellville guard Alyssa Owens during the run. Owens scored all 18 of her points in the second and third quarters … Continue Reading ››

Here are tidbits from my notebook from Springdale High’s 68-39 win over Shiloh Christian in its season opener.

  • Springdale played really well for about 20 minutes in this one, not so great in the second quarter and first four minutes of the third. But all in all, it was a solid performance for a season opener and provided glimpses of what this team can be.


  • Senior Chris Owens was dominant on the offensive end. He made his game-high 24 points look easy. And he … Continue Reading ››

Here's the preseason edition of the 7A-West Conference boys basketball power rankings.

Should be a tight race between the top five teams. Wouldn’t be a shock if they all finished with eight to 11 conference wins and the race came down to the wire. Ties are no fun for power rankings, but it’s not hard to envision a logjam of tied teams when it’s all said and done.

But anyway. … These rankings will be updated periodically during the nonconference portion of the schedule and then on a … Continue Reading ››
