The Bryant Lady Hornets overcame 19 turnovers to defeat the Maumelle Lady Hornets 39-27 in the second round of the OrthoArkansas Tournament at Central Arkansas Christian on Friday night. The Lady Hornets played well defensively, holding Maumelle to just 22 percent shooting, while hitting double that, 44 percent.
"We executed in spurts," Bryant Coach Brad Matthews said. "You still have to be able to execute with the pressure and getting into the passing lanes. I'm proud of our kids. They have some good talent over there."
Benton Panther junior forward Josh Bowling scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Panthers' 74-54 victory over the Wynne Yellowjackets on Friday night in the Searcy Bank Classic. Benton defeated Greenbrier 66-41 in the first round on Thursday.
