Panthers sweep Hornets

February 7, 2014

BRYANT – After the Bryant Lady Hornets came up with the upset victory over their Benton counterparts, the Hornets couldn’t duplicate the feat as the Benton Panthers swept Bryant this season and took the Saline County Shootout trophy with a 73-60 win over Bryant on Wednesday night at the Hornets’ Nest in Bryant.
“The good thing about it is, number one it was a sweep of Bryant,” Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said, “number two, now we’re in sole possession of first place, and number three, we’re defending conference champions.”

BRYANT – After Lady Panther junior Braxton Chumley hit two free throws with 6.3 seconds left to give Benton a 50-49 lead, junior Lady Hornet guard Jakeria Otey dribbled down the left side of the court, drove to the bucket and was the recipient of a foul call as time expired. Otey calmly hit both free throws to give Bryant the 51-50 upset victory over rival Benton in the Saline County Shootout Wednesday night to make up for Tuesday’s postponement due to inclement weather.
