WHITE HALL â€“ In a close game throughout, the Benton Panthers fell 61-59 to the White Hall Bulldogs on Tuesday night. It was the first game in which the Benton basketball team became a lot deeper as players from the 6A state runner-up football team played for the first time. Football and basketball and all-state junior guard Cason Maertens returned to the court, as did seniors Julius Lewis and Tyrin Hollis, and juniors Jeremiah Bowling and Hunter Howe.
But with the new faces on the court, the Panthers are still trying to get on the same page.
HASKELL â€” Head Coach Andy Brakebill and the Bauxite Miners entered Saturdayâ€™s final of the Bill Gibbs Memorial Tournament with one goal â€“ stop Harmony Groveâ€™s best players.
