SIKESTON - The tipoff came at 7:24 p.m. Tuesday and opened a new era of Sikeston varsity basketball. Bulldog senior Randy Collins controlled the tip, then a couple of passes gave the ball to Eric Patterson. A standing room only crowd of nearly 2,700 witnessed the varsity game against Charleston and was vocal throughout in the newly remodeled Sikeston Senior High Field House. Sikeston's Patterson led all scorers with 19 points. Although Sikeston lost 68-62, "the hype surrounding this was for the people of the community," said coach Fred Johnson. "This is a good rivalry and the people pay the bills when they come here, so this is great."
