The Salem Greyhounds' opponent in the opening round of the Northeast Arkansas Invitational Tournament's 1A-2A-3A brackets, the Riverside Rebels, know a little something about what it takes to have success in the annual event at the Convocation Center in Jonesboro.
In the past three years, the Rebels have won two NEA titles and finished as runners-up the other year.
And on Dec. 20, Riverside opened play with a 71-41 victory over Salem.
J.W. Blevins and Shane Smith led the Hounds with six points apiece.
