BRYANT â€“ The Bryant Hornets hosted the Russellville Cyclones on Tuesday night and sent them back home with a 53-43 defeat as the Hornets capitalized on the Cyclonesâ€™ aggressiveness. Bryant made 25 of 32 (78 percent) free throws opposed to Russellvilleâ€™s 5 of 8.
â€śIt was probably the ugliest game Iâ€™ve ever been associated with in terms of offense,â€ť Bryant Coach Mike Abrahamson said. â€śWe both played really good defense, we both had each other scouted well. Both sets of kids did a great job of taking away our offensive looks.
