Morning Men: Nixa rolls again


Being the top seed in the Blue Division over the past three years means the Nixa Eagles have had to play some early basketball games.

But it’s worked out well.

After today’s 76-28 blowout of eighth-seeded Glendale, Nixa has now won those games by a composite score of 515-241 (that’s an average of 85.8-40.2 per game).

Today, Austin Ruder scored 13 points in a balanced efforts, and Jalen Norman added nine.

Check out Norman talking about a key to a good morning on the court, and watch his dunk from this morning’s game.

Nixa, the two-time defending Blue champions, will play West Plains at 4 p.m. on Friday in the semifinals.
