    After all these games and road trips, it comes down to Miller Grove against Yantis, again.
    The district rivals will meet Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at North Hopkins High School in the Class 1A regional tournament.

    Miller Grove won 50-38 over Saint Jo to advance to the game. In the MG win, the Lady Hornets got 16 points from Bailey Penney, along with 11 rebounds for a double-double. Alma Del Castillo added 13 points.
    The team is coached by Gary Billingsley who said this is best season for the squad since 1986.
    Yantis comes into the game fresh from a 49-36 win Friday over Bellevue.
    Scorers for the Lady Owls include: Destiny Garces 4, Angelica Sandoval 12, Josey Wetzel 14 and Molly Bell and Lila Hurley 10 each.
    Having four players in double figures does not shock head coach Tina Carrillo who said the Lady Owls have won all year through team play.
    “We won by 13, it could have been more. We got some fouls called that slowed things down,” Carrillo said. “We caused turnovers and got some quick scores. This is a good team, very seasoned. They understand basketball and what we are trying to do. They listen well. We also depend on our press, we are a fairly quick team. We use what we have. We know Miller Grove, they are kind of on a roll like us. All teams still playing are good.”
