BRYANT - If the 7A/6A conference season wasnâ€™t already a nightmare for the 0-3 Bryant Hornets, Wednesday was. After having to postpone its Tuesday game with Sheridan due to inclement weather, Bryant rescheduled and took the floor Wednesday in hopes of ending its already disappointing conference showing.
The Sheridan Yellowjackets brought their size, speed and athleticism to the Hornets Nest and flew away victorious. Despite losing a large first half lead, the Jackets regained momentum to begin the second half and put the game away for good, winning 61-56.
