Canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 16th annual Arvest Hoopfest will be held Dec. 9-11 at Rogers Heritage (Ark.) High School. In addition to the host team, Rogers Heritage, the field also includes Arkansas schools Blytheville, Conway, Greene County Tech, Harrison, Rogers and Russellville. Springfield (Mo.) Catholic is this year’s only out-of-state entrant.

“After being canceled last year due to COVID-19 we couldn’t be more excited to see this event back on the calendar,” said Brad Crain, president and CEO for Arvest in Benton County. “High School sports are an integral part of our communities and this tournament is a fun way for us to engage and show our continued commitment to our communities. We look forward to watching all these teams in action.”

Russellville and Greene County Tech will get the tournament started at 4 p.m. on Dec. 9. That game will be followed by Conway vs. Blytheville at 5:30 p.m. Springfield Catholic and Rogers will play at 7 p.m., followed by Harrison-Rogers Heritage at 8:30 p.m.

There will be four games on Dec. 10-11 as well.
