Panthers whip Wildcats

January 30, 2014

EL DORADO – After an uninspiring first half of play, the Benton Panthers took it to the El Dorado Wildcats 65-39 in 7A/6A South Conference play on Tuesday night in El Dorado. The Panthers improve to 14-5 overall and 5-1 in the South.
“I thought the first half, rebounding-wise, we were very lackadaisical,” Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. “We let their athleticism get to us. They hit the boards hard against us. I was disappointed by our defensive rebounding.
“We weren’t hungry or played with a purpose in the first half.”

BRYANT – Junior guard Jakeria Otey started and finished the game by missing two free throws for the Bryant Lady Hornets, but in between she put on solid offensive display scoring 18 points to help lift the Hornets to a 43-38 win against the Texarkana Razorbacks in a conference game at home in Bryant Friday night.
The win improved the Lady Hornets to 2-3 in conference play and 6-9 overall. Texarkana started the game off quickly by taking a 9-3 lead early in the game that forced Bryant Head Coach Brad Matthews to take a timeout.

TEXARKANA – The Benton Panthers picked up an important road victory on Tuesday night upending the Arkansas High Razorbacks 58-42 in Texarkana.
“I’m very pleased our guards are coming along,” Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. “In over 25 years, I’ve never coached a team that has this low turnovers as this group has. We’re only averaging five to six turnovers a game and that’s remarkable.”
Benton (12-5, 3-1 South) would lead 12-9 after the first quarter before expanding their lead to 30-17 over the Razorbacks at halftime.
