TEXARKANA â The Benton Panthers picked up an important road victory on Tuesday night upending the Arkansas High Razorbacks 58-42 in Texarkana.
âIâm very pleased our guards are coming along,â Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. âIn over 25 years, Iâve never coached a team that has this low turnovers as this group has. Weâre only averaging five to six turnovers a game and thatâs remarkable.â
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.
SHERIDAN â Up by eight points early in the second half, the Bryant Lady Hornets couldnât hold on as they lost 56-51 to the Sheridan Lady Jackets in 7A/6A South Conference play in Sheridan on Tuesday night.
Junior guard Jakeria Otey scored a season-high 22 points on 9 of 11 shooting from the field, and senior forward Aubree Allen double-doubled with 16 points and 11 rebounds, but despite playing solid defense, Bryant couldnât stop Sheridanâs Kadesha Cooper down the stretch in the loss.
