Senior Darrell Johnson’s near-triple double leads Vikings to title game berth against De Smet on Friday.
For the third time this season, archrival boys basketball programs Parkway North and Parkway Central hooked up Wednesday night. The teams traded victories in the two previous meetings, with North earning a 59-51 win in the season opener back in November, and Central claiming a 47-45 win in conference play three weeks ago. But the most important matchup of the season came Wednesday night, when the Vikings and Colts clashed one last time in the MSHSAA Class 5 District 4 semifinals, with the winner earning a shot at the district title game on Friday night. And thanks to a brilliant performance by 6-foot-8, 240-pound senior center Darrell Johnson, it was Parkway North's night, somehow outlasting Parkway Central for a 49-45 win, in front of a …

The visiting Pirates come back from 12-point deficit to pull out remarkable 71-70 win over Wildcats.
The night started out as one of mutual celebration for both the Hazelwood West High School and Pattonville High School girls basketball teams in a charity game for heart disease. But the never-ending fight to promote heart health and awareness turned into a heart-stopping, instant classic of a ballgame, as the Wildcats and Pirates waged an epic battle that came down to the final whistle. Host Hazelwood West, which delivered one of its finest efforts of the season, led almost from the start Friday, and even went up by as many as 12 points late in the fourth quarter. But the visitors from Pattonville showed just how much heart they have as well, by rallying to outscore the Wildcats 21-8 in the final four minutes to pull off an incredible 71-…

Chaminade has won the school's Christmas tournament each year since 2007.
Chaminade Junior Guard Andy Kleinlein hit for 15 points Thursday night to lead the host Red Devils past Pattonville 37-31 to end round robin play in the Creve Coeur school's annual Christmas Tournament. Chaminade advances to Friday's championship game at 7 p.m. against John Burroughs. As the score might indicate, it was a low-scoring affair at the Athletictron. Chaminade led 19-15 at the half, giving up only three Pirate points in the second quarter but only scoring six of its own. The Pirates stayed in the game with timely three-point shooting and a pressing defense. Pattonville was led by Senior Guard Kavon Harvey with 14 points. John Burroughs advanced by defeating Parkway Central 46-41 in the late game Thursday. Chaminade has claimed …

Mikala McGhee and Kristen Hanna signed letters of intent at Pattonville High on Tuesday, promising to attend two Missouri universities.
Two Pattonville High School athletes signed letters of intent Wednesday, each promising a Missouri school they would join their women’s basketball programs. Mikala McGhee signed with Division I school Missouri State University, while Kristen Hanna signed with Division II school Missouri Southern State University. Hanna said she accepted Missouri Southern's offer because the school isn’t far from home, she liked the girls on their basketball team and it was a good place for the type of education she wants. Hanna wants to study broadcast journalism, she said, and hopes to be a sports broadcaster in a large city or ESPN. McGhee has similar academic aspirations. She wants to major in communications, with a minor in sports management. Missouri …

This month, the Geek Girl goes on a dangerous exploratory mission into the earliest known training grounds for gamblers: Dave and Buster's.
Flashing lights, simple controls, and the dead eyes of an electronically rendered woman have me constantly complaining that, these days, casino gambling feels more like visiting an arcade designed for the elderly and less like dressing up for a scene out of James Bond. While action-based video games aren’t devolving into the primitive 16-bit machines seen in the casino slots, an investigative mission to Dave and Buster's revealed the vast majority of the games that spat out prize tickets were training tools for future gamblers. You don’t win tickets playing Time Crisis. Wielding that pink gun is its own reward. I resisted the siren call of beloved games in order to complete my brave, exploratory mission into the kids' section of the arcade…
