Smackover’s Lady Bucks open play Monday in the 3A-8 District Tournament, which is being hosted by Centerpoint High School. The Lady Bucks take on Genoa today at 5 p.m.
Smackover brings a 10-16 record into the tournament.
“We have started to show a little grit in the last few games of the regular season,” said Smackover coach Tripper Rowton. “We will be prepared for Genoa and look forward to playing Fouke for a shot to go to the regional tournament.”
Smackover won both of its matchups with the Lady Dragons this season. The Lady Bucks won 49-36 on Dec. 18 and 45-37 on Jan. 25.
Genoa is 4-24 on the season, 0-12 in conference. The Lady Dragons are mired in a nine-game losing skid.
