Central, ND boys basketball teams to debut in Showcase

Friday, November 27, 2009

Saturday's event at the Show Me Center will feature four games

High school boys basketball fans who need an early fix for hoops will get their chance Saturday at the Show Me Center.

Central and Notre Dame will be in action as well as the reigning Class AAA state champions from Tennessee.

The Pepsi Showcase gets underway at 2:30 p.m. with a pair of Kentucky schools -- Ballard Memorial vs. Fulton City.

The Central Tigers then will get their first taste of the hardwood when they play Nettleton, Ark., at 4:15 p.m. Central made a run to the Class 5 District 1 title game before falling to Poplar Bluff last season.

Memphis White Station, the defending Class AAA state champs from Tennessee, face Vianney out of St. Louis at 6 p.m. White Station features point guard Joe Jackson, a 5-foot-11 University of Memphis signee. Scout.com ranked Jackson as the No. 4 point guard in the nation, while The Sporting News ranked him as the No. 10 player in the country.

It will be Vianney's first game of the season.

The final game of the day pits Notre Dame against Lafayette of St. Louis. The Bulldogs lost to Sikeston in the Class 4 District 1 title game last season, while Lafayette lost in the sectional round last season. The final game starts at 7:45 p.m.

Where is the coverage of these games?

The games were played November 29. Today is November 30. No updates were reported on this site. Instead of searching the sports page, look in "out of the past" under "records".

The games were actually played on Saturday. Since Cape Central won and ND lost I guess they didn't feel the need to cover.

Game One - Ballard Memorial 72 / Fulton City 69

Game Two - Cape Central 33 / Nettleton 22

Game Three - White Station 84 / Vianney 52

Game Four - Lafayette 60 - Notre Dame 54
