Tim Boyd again worked his last-season magic for Conway High on Friday night.

This time, it worked like a charm.

Boyd hit a lane shot with 25 seconds left to propel the Wampus Cats to a 65-64 victory over Little Rock Mills in double overtime at Buzz Bolding Arena. He hit two buzzer baskets on successive nights last week in the Wampus Cat Invitational to force overtime. The Cats lost both of those games.

Conway (5-3) led by 21 points in the first half before the Comets (4-5) got hot from 3-point range and outscored the Cats, 42-21, the second half to force the third straight overtime game for the CHS boys on their home court.

Boyd, who was 14 of 18 from the foul line, led with 24 points. Justin Leon added 14 and Adrian Moore scored 13. Kaylon Tappin was almost Mills’ entire offense with 42 points.


VILONIA — McKenzie Morris scored 13 points Friday night as the Vilonia girls stretched their record to 9-0 with a 54-28 romp over Batesville.

The LadyEagles led 29-8 at the half.


The Faulkner County Falcons homeschool basketball team defeated the Cedarville Faith Crusaders, 79-28, Friday night in Cedarville. Carter Mayo had a season-high 42 points for the Falcons. Colton Ferrell had 16 points, Grant Ragland scored 10 and Trent Wolf added seven points with 12 rebounds.

The Falcons lost earlier in the week to Saline County, the 17th ranked team in the nation, 75-64. Wolf and Hadan Phillips had 15 points each with Wolf grabbing 17 rebounds. Isaac Stanton had 14 points and Mayo had 13.

The Falcons host Pulaski County at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Central Baptist College.
