Cobras hold on, will play for seventh today

HARRISON, Ark. — A win in the final game of a season doesn’t happen often for any basketball team.

The Parkland women’s basketball team will get the opportunity to do just that after the Cobras outlasted Mesa (Ariz.) Community College 66-57 in a consolation semifinal game on Friday afternoon at the NJCAA Division II national tournament.
