On Saturday, the Bobcats travel to Gentry for the final tournament of the semester. Ferguson said it is important to go into the winter break feeling confident.

"I think we still have some things to work on and some dust to kick off, but I think we will be alright," Ferguson said.

The action starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday in Gentry.
