Weather postpones several basketball games

By Todd Richards

While the Winter Storm has finally let up, the after effects of the ice and snow have postponed a good portion of the high school hoops action.  That's because there are so many cancellations and communications has been difficult with so many schools.

Here is the information I have been able to confirm.  I will update anything else I can confirm tonight on Heartland News at 6 and also have an abbreviated version of Heartland Hoops tonight at 10.

Here is a short list of games that have been confirmed to be played Friday:

Heartland Hoops Friday Games

  • Webster Groves at Jackson
  • Park Hills at Farmington
  • Chester at Du Quoin (Heartland Hoops Subway Shot of the Night)
  • Harrisburg at Herrin
  • West Frankfort at Benton

Here is a list of games that have been postponed for tonight:

  • Poplar Bluff at Cape Central
  • Charleston at Kennett

  • Portageville at Caruthersville

Don't forget a busy weekend of college hoops ahead this weekend, including a Saturday night doubleheader at the Show Me Center.
