JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - We can’t get to every gym on game nights, so that means there are more storylines.

The Newport boys had a flair for the dramatic last night in the 3A-2 Tournament. Jon Moore hit two three-pointers in the final 20 seconds of the game Wednesday night. One of those was a buzzer beater, the Greyhounds rallied to beat Mountain View 41-40. 9-seed Newport clinched a spot in regionals.

Izard County and Viola girls had a thriller Wednesday night in the 1A-2 Tournament. AJ McCandlis dropped 46 points as the Lady Longhorns beat the Lady Cougars 62-59. Viola punched their ticket to regionals.
