BAUXITE â€“ A hot start on offense in the first half and stingy play on defense in the second half helped push the Bauxite Lady Miners (4-2) past the Pottsville Apaches by a score of 50-38 on Tuesday night.
Despite the win, head coach Joshua Harrison still felt his team didnâ€™t play their best ball.
â€śIt was an ugly game to say the least,â€ť Harrison said. â€śPottsville is a good team who is constantly in the 4A state tournament. We looked sluggish tonight. We didnâ€™t execute like we normally would, but I thought defensively we played pretty hard.â€ť
BRYANT- The Bryant Hornets led early and often in cruising to a 56-38 victory over the Fort Smith Southside Rebels on Tuesday night. The Hornets improve to 2-0 on the year.
â€śIâ€™m pleased,â€ť Bryant Coach Mike Abrahamson said. â€śI thought we played really hard. I thought they played hard and they did what they were coached to do. Thatâ€™s encouraging to me.â€ť
BRYANT- After trailing nearly the whole game, the Bryant Lady Hornets battled back to a hard-fought 35-34 victory over Mount Saint Mary Academy on Tuesday night at the Bryant Gym. The Lady Hornets improve to 2-1 on the year.
â€śI thought our kids played well,â€ť Bryant Coach Brad Matthews said. â€śWe found a way down the stretch to fight back.â€ť
Bryant was led by junior guard Dezarea Duckworth, who finished the night with 20 points and grabbed six rebounds. Senior post player Whitney Meyer played a huge part in the rebounding game with eight boards to go along with two points.
