Bauxite buries Ashdown in 2nd half

January 24, 2013

BAUXITE – Sophomore Ben Madison scored 16 points, senior Tyler Hill added 12 points, and the Bauxite Miners won its third consecutive conference game with a 46-37 victory over the visiting Ashdown Panthers.
In the first half, both teams came out and struggled to put the ball through the basket. After the first quarter of play, Bauxite (12-5, 6-1 conference) led Ashdown 8-7. Three-pointers by Madison and junior Hunter Holder were the only field goals in the quarter for the Miners, leaving Head Coach Mark Smith frustrated with his team’s offensive efficiency.

Yellowjackets get final sting

January 17, 2013

BRYANT - If the 7A/6A conference season wasn’t already a nightmare for the 0-3 Bryant Hornets, Wednesday was.

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.

So what's the big deal no one got in?

January 16, 2013

What? Then who is the vote supposed to go to. The fact no one got into the Hall this year is a testament to how hard it should be to get voted in, regardless who is voting.
