The second round of the consolation side of the Bill Gibbs Memorial Tournament bracket resumed Wednesday with three Saline County Teams battling to play on Saturday. The first of the three being the Bauxite boys team in a contest with Carlisle, which lost to Poyen on Tuesday.
The Miners, which lost to a well-coached and athletic Perryville team on Monday, came out a little stiff on Wednesday, but quickly turned up the heat on their way to a 51-30 rout of Carlisle.
The Miners missed a few early buckets before getting on the board to tie the game at two on a Tyler Hill field goal.
Coming off a loss and then playing again the next night might be tough for some high school basketball teams. But, for Glen Rose, that is just motivation for the next game.
Both Glen Rose teams lost on Tuesday night to Mount Vernon in routs. But, Wednesday was full of Beaver fever as both the boys and girls won in routs themselves. The girls kicked off the action with a 57-32 domination of Woodlawn, followed by a 37-23 win for the boys.
The Lady Beavers could not get a shot to fall in the first game on Tuesday.
