Jackson boys basketball can’t slow Poplar Bluff in rivals’ return meeting (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 01/17/17)
When the Jackson and Poplar Bluff boys basketball teams met in a SEMO Conference Tournament semifinal back on Dec. 8, it was the Mules who were shorthanded. This time around, it was the Indians who struggled to keep all their personnel on the floor due to early foul trouble, and a full-strength Poplar Bluff side with Marcedus Leech back in the fold punished Jackson on its home floor, 77-61, in a conference matchup between district rivals on Tuesday night in Jackson, Missouri...

The Meadow Heights boys basketball team feels a little bit better after watching Advance run to Southeast Missourian Christmas title game, but after getting hammered by the Hornets in the opening round on Monday — a performance coach Nick Hermann called “the lowest of lows this season” — the Panthers felt as though they had something to prove.

Well along into his 70s, Carl Ritter wears the title of mayor of Advance. If law allowed, it's probably a position he could have gotten voted into as a teen while attending Advance High School.

Late run sees Saxony Lutheran girls basketball scrape past Notre Dame, return to Holiday Classic final (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 12/20/16)
For the better part of four quarters, there was not so much what you would call momentum as there were simply moments of one team taking better care of the ball than the other. That is to say, neither team took care of the ball well. But when it came down to crunch time, the third-seeded Saxony Lutheran girls basketball team found a way to make plays, going on an 8-2 run late in the fourth quarter to break a 44-all tie and defeat second-seeded Notre Dame 54-48 on Monday night in a semifinal of the Kelso Supply Holiday Classic at the Show Me Center.. ...

SEASON WRAP: Matukewicz believes Southeast Missouri State football doing right things despite record (semoball.com ~ College Sports ~ 12/15/16)
Benefiting from a dominant defense but hindered by an inconsistent offense, 2016 was a double-edged sword for the Southeast Missouri State football team. Third-year coach Tom Matukewicz was one of many who expected to see a breakthrough campaign -- Southeast entered the year with 17 returning starters and 24 seniors, the program's largest senior class in four years -- but the results on the field failed to meet those expectations, as the Redhawks finished 3-8...

Southeast Missouri State men's basketball drops first home game in loss to Missouri State (semoball.com ~ College Sports ~ 12/07/16)
A lack of focus heading into Wednesday's game allowed the Southeast Missouri State men's basketball team to reflect on its missteps. It was evident from the opening tip, and the final result made it all the more hard to swallow.
