In 1946, arch rivals Berryville and Boyce tied for the District Basketball Championship.
The playoff game was held in Boyce High school.
Boyce won 19 to 18 in double overtime when a double foul was called at the end of the game. George Estep made his foul shot and Bobby Levi missed to give Boyce the win. Mr. Hugh Criman was the referee and the crowd was least 200 people.
