3:30 p.m. Barton Coliseum. $8.

While football is probably always going to be the king sport of Arkansas, there's something to be said for a great game of high school basketball. Sure, nobody on the basketball court is getting his or her teeth rattled by a bone-crushing hit (or shouldn't, anyway), but you also don't have to plant your butt on a liquid-nitrogen-cooled aluminum bleacher in order to watch a game. That counts for a lot in my book.

Even beyond being out of the weather, though, there's just the poetry of the five best of our'n against the five best of your'n, with young folks dueling it out for a fleeting moment of victory under the lights. Here, the state's best B-ball teams go head to head for all the marbles, with what's sure to be copious amounts of soaring triumph and heartbreaking defeat on display.

The full schedule is available here.
