NEW ALBANY – The 24th Annual Hotbed Classic has tipped. We’ll be updating throughout the day. See the schedule below.

Game 3: Belmont 72, Myrtle 60

Belmont 11 10 18 21 – 60

Three-happy Belmont hit only four 3s, but got 22 from Harrison Fancher and 20 from Luke Alexander. Isaac Sparks had 13, including 10 of 10 from the line. In the loss, Myrtle got a game-high 28 from 6-foot-4 junior forward Chris Hill.

Watch: Timaya Stewart talk Baldwyn’s PCT win over New Site

@brandonspeck

It had been a decade since Baldwyn beat New Site. The Lady Bearcats did it last night, 57-40 to advance to the finals of tonight’s Prentiss County Tournament against 3A champ and No. 3 Booneville.

No. 9 New Site played without leading scorer Grace Elliot, but Baldwyn’s Timaya Stewart took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 of her game-high 21. Here is the story from today’s #DJournal and some video with Stewart.

With a win Friday night at Grenada, No. 3 Tupelo is 15-3, 3-0 in the division and off to a faster start than most thought.
