THE BIG GAME IN THE LEAGUE WAS AN UPSET OF SORTS WITH THE TOP RANKED TEAM IN CLASS 5, THE WEST PLAINS LDY ZIZZERS GOING DOWN, 54-47 AT THE HANDS OF THE 10TH RANKED ROLLA LADY BULLDOGS…MADISON MACE FINISHED WITH 18, CARLI LIBHART HAD 16..ASHTON JUDD LED WEST PLAINS WITH 32…
THE TURNING POINT OF THIS CAME IN THE FIRST QUARTER WHEN THE TEAMS WERE NOTTED UP AT 8, ROLLA OUTSCORED THE LADY ZIZZERS 14-5 IN THE LAST 3 1/2 MINUTES, AND HELD WEST PLAINS AT ARMS LENGTH THE REST OF THE WAY…
IT COULD HAVE COST ROLLA HOWEVER…A KEY COG IN THEIR WHEEL, TANIA CORLEY WENT DOWN WITH A LEG INJURY IN THE 4TH, AND HER STATUS DOWN THE ROAD IS UNKNOWN…
COACH CHARLIE PARKER SAID “My guards really stepped up….“West Plains did a good job doubling down on Savannah (Campbell) and Carli and Madison lit it up.”
Parker said the key was that Rolla answered all of West Plains’ runs.
“That was big,” he said. “The game of basketball is about making and stopping runs. Our girls did a great job holding their composure. Madison did a great job. Once her first and second shots went in the hole, her confidence went up on both ends.
“Anytime the girls see a teammate go down like Taniya it’s really tough on them. It’s like family. I told them we’ve got to focus and get after them the next minute and a half.”

The St. Louis Cardinals have traded outfielder Dexter Fowler to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. The St. Louis return is a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Fowler is reunited with Joe Maddon, the current Angels manager, who managed him during the 2015-16 seasons with the Cubs. The 2016 season was the best of Fowler’s career and he was the catalyst of the offense….THAT WAS THEN….THEN HE LEFT FOR FREE AGENCY AND signed a five-year, $82.5 million deal with the Cardinals. There is just one year and $16.5 million left on the deal now. The Angels are getting $12.75 million from the Cardinals to cover most of Fowler’s 2021 salary. ACCORDING TO THE L.A. TIMES.
Fowler, 34, hit .233 with four homers, 15 RBI and 14 runs in just 31 games last season.
ST. LOUIS HAS A FEW EXTRA OUTFIELDERS THAT ARE GOOD, THEY CAN HIT, AND THEIR SALARIES ALLOW THE CARDINALS TO CUT EXPENSES, WHICH WAS A GOAL THIS YEAR…IT COST THEM TO KEEP ADAM WAINRIGHT, AND IF THEY’RE ABLE TO RE-SIGN YADIER MOLINA, THAT WILL BE A CHUNCK OF CHANGE, BUT THE COST OF RECENTLY AQUIRED NOLAN ARENADO IS BEING PICKED UP BY COLORADO…..
Among all the interesting things there are to know about Super Bowl LV, for just the 14th time in Super Bowl history, the game will be a rematch of a game played during the regular season…..the victorious team in the regular-season matchup is just 6-7 in the rematch, with AFC teams going 0-4 in their attempts to secure a two-game sweep. the Chiefs have the opportunity to break that streak. Kansas City defeated the Buccaneers, 27-24, back in Week 12, behind an explosive performance from Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill. Mahomes completed 37 of 49 passes for 462 yards and three touchdowns. Hill hauled in 13 of 15 targets for 269 yards and was on the receiving end of all three of Mahomes’ scores.
the Bucs had absolutely no answer for either of them, and because they didn’t, they lost the game. If they’re to reverse the result this time around, they’ll have to figure something out…PRESSURE ON PATRICK MAHOMES CAN CHASE HIM OUT OF THE POCKET, BUT HE’S AS GOOD OUT OF THE POCKET AS HE IS IN, AND IF THE BUCS DON’T COVER TRAVIS KELSE, IT COULD BE A LONG NIGHT FOR THE GOAT…..
Super Bowl LV is COMING UP ON SUNDAY….
