EL DORADO â 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.
âI thought the first half, rebounding-wise, we were very lackadaisical,â Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. âWe let their athleticism get to us. They hit the boards hard against us. I was disappointed by our defensive rebounding.
âWe werenât hungry or played with a purpose in the first half.â
