Finally! Big House week is here. Normally a two week event, this year it will only be one. Starting with the final four this year, fans can expect to see great basketball every game, with championship aspirations on the line.
Today, Monday, March 4, 2019, 1A & 4A schools tip off. At 27-3, The lady bulldogs of Lanier playing at 5:30 will attract Jackson fans to the Big House. Lanier’s girls have been steady all year, playing as a cohesive unit under the leadership of Coach Jonas James. However, do not expect the 25-4 Lady Wildcats of Louisville to be an easy opponent by any means. This 4A matchup should be awesome to watch.
On the boys sides, Back to Back defending 4A Champions, Raymond Rangers, who lost 6 seniors including all 5 starters to graduation still earned their way back to the Big House. Head Coach Tony Tadlock’s players have bought in and their 27-5 record shows it.
