In Class 4A, the five ranked teams are all at home facing unranked foes. Ashdown visits top-ranked Dollarway.

• Familiar foe awaits Batesville
Batesville had hoped for another chance at Camden Fairview, though it didn't expect that opportunity to come quite so soon.
The Pioneers (9-2), who lost to the Cardinals in the Class 5A state championship game last season, will have another chance against the defending state champions on Friday night when they host Camden Fairview (10-1) in the second round of the state playoffs.
Batesville has won eight straight games to earn a No. 1 seed, with its only losses coming in non-conference play against Class 7A Springdale High and Class 6A Jonesboro.
The Cardinals, meanwhile, fell to a No. 2 seed after a conference loss to Hope, with the result being a difficult road trip this week — against an opponent eager for a shot at redemption.
