Maumelle grid star Davillier making mark in hoops

Maumelle junior defensive end Arkansas 2022 recruiting target Nico Davillier is one of the state’s best high school football players, but he’s also been taking care of some business on the basketball court.

Davillier (6-5, 275) and Maumelle are two wins away from playing for the Class 5A state basketball championship.

The Hornets will battle Russellville Saturday at 1 p.m. in Hot Springs with the winner advancing to play Sylvan Hills or Pine Bluff in a Monday semifinal.
