Bryant-PB postponed again


For the second straight day, the Bryant at Pine Bluff high school basketball games were postponed because of road conditions.

The doubleheader was one of many games originally scheduled for Friday that have been iced because of the rough winter weather that’s hit spots of Arkansas. No other scores in the 7A/6A-South Conference were reported as of Saturday.

Dollarway at Heber Springs has been rescheduled for 4 p.m. Monday with the junior high girls game, followed by the high school games. A win in the high school boys game will secure a third straight district championship (and second in the 2-4A) for Dollarway.

Sheridan at El Dorado also was postponed Friday. A makeup date has not been set for either this or the Bryant-Pine Bluff matchup.
