Clean Sweep

As high school teams prepare for the homestretch, Victor Joyner has Jacksonville poised for another deep playoff run.
Jacksonville, Ark - Fresh off a win over Parkview, it's back to work in the Devil's Den.  Tuesday night's victory gave Jacksonville a season sweep over a quality conference opponent.

"I see those guys all the time, they're my friends," said junior guard Justin McCleary.  "I've got to beat them up on the court, but outside we're buddies."

"We say the same thing when we beat Searcy, beat Jonesboro, beat West Memphis, said head coach Victor Joyner.  "Parkview is the elite in other peoples minds, but to us, it's just another conference game, and that's how we approach it."

"Everyone in the conference is tough so we've got to be mentally focused," added senior Tirrell Brown. 

The win improves the Red Devils to 8-and-2 in 7A/6A East, good enough for 2nd in the division, but in a conference this difficult, there's not much time to celebrate.

"It was fun while it lasted, but now it's time to get back to work and get ready for another tough opponent," said Joyner.
