    Several teams in the area will be in postseason basketball action today.

    Sulphur Bluff will be taking on Fruitvale at Emory Rains High School today at 6 p.m. in the boys bi-district action.
    The North Hopkins Panthers will take on Bells in bi-district competition. Their game is set Friday at 7 p.m. against the winner of the Collinsville/Itasca game.
    The Saltillo Lady Lions take on Campbell in the regional quarterfinals. The game is also slated tonight at Rains High School.
    In a game with a lot of local interest, the Yantis Lady Owls meet district rival Miller Grove.    The two teams play today at 6:30 p.m. at North Hopkins High School in the regional quarterfinals.
    Yantis is the district champion and defeated Bellevue 49-36 to advance to the game.
    Miller Grove is having their best season since 1986. The Lady Hornets defeated Saint Jo, 50-38 in the area round.
    “Yantis puts a lot of pressure on you.  We have done a good job versus the pressure the last two games,” said Gary Billingsley, Miller Grove head coach. “I think the game will come down to how well we break the press.  But it is really not about Yantis.  We have to play the way we are capable of playing or we will lose. We have respect for them, they are a good team but we feel like we deserve to be here also.  This team has improved all year.  I am proud of how far we have come. “
