A 6-7 senior wing, Armstrong pummeled ISA with an assortment of what seemed like double-digit jams. That’s what University of Arizona coach Sean Miller is counting on from Armstrong, who signed with the Wildcats.

Bella Vista also has the recent addition of guard Zion Harmon. According to the Louisville Courier Journal, the 5-9 sophomore was ruled ineligible by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association after a second transfer to Marshall County. He’ll remain a student there and play with Bella Vista on weekends. Harmon, considered the nation’s top guard prospect for the Class of 2021, hit four 3-pointers and scored 17 points.
