Mizzou Arena Hosts Annual Shootout
The showcase starts at 11 a.m. Sunday. Defending Class 2 state champion Harrisburg plays Bowling Green at 12:30 p.m.
Rivalry games include Hickman against Rock Bridge.
"It's extremely pleasing to me personally and I'm sure my father is excited," said Hickman Coach Kenny Ash, "but it's another game and you kind of have to look at it that way."
Helias Coach Jerry Buescher, who tops all active Missouri coaches with his 775 wins, leads his team against Ozark at 5 p.m.
The event wraps up at 8 p.m. with the Highway 54 battle between Mexico and Fulton.
Fulton's Darrell Davis said, "I'm excited as a coach because this is one of the nicest facilities in the United States. Your basketball players get to experience that and [so do] their parents. That's a pretty good ice cream sundae. Then you put the cherry on top that you're playing Mexico."
