    We’re into the final week and a half of regular season prep basketball in NWA and the River Valley. A lot of exciting conference races coming down to the finish line. We’ll talk about it next on Prep Rally.
    Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette sports editor Graham Thomas, reporters Rick Fires and Leland Barclay cover some of the best games from this past week.
    Rick returns after time on the disabled list. Something about a mule we hear. Leland witnessed the battle of Crawford County part two. Alma vs. Van Buren where the Pointers handed Alma their first loss and earned a trip to the postseason. Rick watched Rogers Heritage come in Springdale Har-Ber's Wildcat stadium get decimated by Courtland Muldrew and the rest of the Wildcats. 
    Bentonville and Fayetteville, was a fight for most of the game. Other teams include Bentonville West, a dangerous Springdale team and upcoming district tournaments. 
    We figured it would all come down to the final weeks of the year and that's ringing true.
