BRYANT â€“ It wasnâ€™t exactly the way Bryant Hornetsâ€™ Coach Mike Abrahamson drew up the play, but C.J. Rainey found a way to achieve the desired result.
Rainey took a pass on the right side of the floor, curled into the lane and hit a layup with 6.6 seconds to go to tie the game at 43. His free throw after drawing contact gave the Hornets a 44-43 win over the Little Rock Fair Eagles on Friday. The Hornets defeated Pine Bluff 42-41 on Tuesday for their first 7A/6A South win.
BENTON â€“ It didnâ€™t start well for the Benton Panthers against their arch rival Bryant Hornets on Friday night at Benton Arena, but a 20-0 run from the end of the first quarter until the beginning of the third quarter propelled the Panthers to a 41-34 victory over the Hornets. It was both teamsâ€™ first 7A/6A South conference game of the season.
