Bryant-Pine Bluff games rescheduled for today


Snow fell again in parts of Arkansas on Friday, prompting postponements of some high school basketball games in the state.

Pine Bluff’s girls and boys games against Bryant were rescheduled to today. The girls game will begin at 3 p.m., with the boys game to follow.

The Warren at Dumas high school games were postponed just before tipoff Friday. The games, originally scheduled for Thursday, will be made up at a later date.

McGehee played at Drew Central on Friday. The girls game was completed, but the boys game was halted just before the start of the fourth quarter and will be completed at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Because of an early deadline due to road conditions, coverage of those games is not available in this issue. Visit www.pbcommercial.com for the game reports.
