I’m finally over this stinking flu, which means I can return to work Monday. Just in time, too, because we’ve got one more big week of regular season basketball. The following week is pretty meaningless – few division games – and then the postseason!
Also, the soccer playoffs begin Tuesday. I’d love to tell you who all was in it, but the crack staff at the MHSAA doesn’t have the brackets completed, as usual. Even though the regular season’s over. I do wonder if they even have someone in charge of the Web site, because it’s pretty useless, especially compared to sites like Alabama’s and Tennessee’s.
I digress. Some of the big games to watch this week:
Tuesday: Houston at Nettleton (boys & girls); Aberdeen at South Pontotoc (girls)
Thursday: Shannon at Pontotoc (boys); Myrtle at Marshall Aca. (MHSAA vs. MPSA)
Friday: Gentry at Oxford (girls, defending Slam champs vs. DJ No. 2); Ripley at Booneville (boys)
Saturday: Tupelo at Nettleton (boys)
