UPDATE: West Memphis wins with 67% of the vote
The people have had their say: ’92 L.R. Parkview (Derek Fisher, Maurice Robinson) will tussle with ’80 West Memphis (Michael Cage, Keith Lee [pictured above]) for the title of best high school team in state history.
In the semifinals, 57% of participants chose ’92 L.R. Parkview over ’99 L.R. Central.
’80 West Memphis got 67% of the vote versus ’76 Conway.
With Parkview making it to the finals, this Readers’ Choice edition has already diverged from the original SYNC magazine version, where ’99 Central clashed with West Memphis in the finals of this hypothetical tourney.
But the ball’s in your court, now. So, which juggernaut gets the all-time marbles?
