BAUXITE â€“ The Bauxite Lady Miners hosted the England Lady Lions in a benefit game at Fred Dawson Gym on Thursday night and turned a close game into a 56-41 blowout. The Lady Miners led 24-22 at the half before increasing their lead the next two quarters.
The scoring for Bauxite was evenly distributed as three players each scored 12 points in senior Mary Crow, junior Allison Tackett, and senior Morgan Case. Tackett hit 2 of 4 from the 3-point line, Case had eight rebounds and two assists, and Crow had nine assists, five rebounds and four steals.
Behind a steady running attack and stingy play on defense, the Cabot Panthers upset the Bryant Hornets in the opening round of the Arkansas 7A state tournament by a score of 28-21 Friday night.
â€śWe just didnâ€™t capitalize,â€ť Bryant Coach Paul Calley said. â€śWe had too many chances we didnâ€™t capitalize on. Our defense made stops in the second half and we didnâ€™t take advantage of it.
The Bryant Hornets had a very successful season a year ago when theymade it to the semifinals of the 7A state tournament and lost to a loaded Little Rock Hall team which won the state title. With a semifinal appearance, one would expect high expectation the next year, but the Hornets have a totally different team this year.
