Ledge-ends of the game 

Members of the Arkansas General Assembly will move from zoning to zone defense, from co-sponsoring to double-teaming, from ... OK, we'll stop. It's the first annual Arkansas Legislative Hoops For Kids' Sake Game, pitting the House versus the Senate! All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas. Here's your chance to find out who has game, and who can still pull off '80s-style short shorts. Based on early reports, the over-under on hamstring pulls is five. In addition to the lawmakers, celebrity guests will round out the rosters. The game will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 at the Jack T. Stephens Center. General admission tickets are $5 and available at the door.  Doors open at 6 p.m. Scouting reports below.
