Lady Panthers snap streaks

January 21, 2015

EL DORADO – The Benton Lady Panthers snapped two big streaks on Friday night as they defeated the El Dorado Lady Wildcats 31-20 in El Dorado for the first time in seven years. Benton also snapped their current seven-game losing streak with the victory.

“It was a good win for us,” Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. “We stopped two seven-game losing streaks – one that we’re currently on and the one down at El Dorado.”

Senior guard Braxton Chumley had her second straight 16-point game in the win, though the Lady Panthers (8-9, 1-2 South) didn’t have a good offensive night.

Lady Miners win 3rd straight

January 21, 2015

WALDRON – Though the Bauxite Lady Miners improved to 3-3 in the 7-4A Conference with a 50-29 victory over the Waldron Lady Bulldogs on the road Friday, Coach Cody Lambert, though happy with the win, didn’t think his team played as well as it should have.

“We didn’t play very good, didn’t execute our offense very well,” Lambert said. “We didn’t get the loose balls, didn’t block out very well, we just didn’t do a very good job. But it’s good when you can mess up on a lot of things and still have a dominate victory.”

January 15, 2015

BENTON – Benton Panther junior Clay Anderson hit a 3-pointer to force overtime against the Hall Warriors, but the Panthers would ultimately fall 51-47, dropping Benton to 0-2 in the 6A South Conference.

Down 38-35 with 23.2 left in regulation, Anderson would take a pass from junior post Jake Scoggins and hit a tough 3-pointer with five seconds remaining from the right side.

The Panthers (9-6, 0-2 South) would take a 40-38 lead in overtime when senior Braden Warhurst hit two free throws, and would lead 42-40 after junior Cason Maertens scored a bucket on a tough shot.

Defense lifts Lady Hornets past Belles

January 15, 2015

BRYANT — In order for the Bryant to make the 7A State playoffs in March, the Lady Hornets must have a winning record against the three other 7A teams from the 7A/6A Central Conference.

Bryant made the step in the right direction in making that goal on Tuesday night when the Lady Hornets defeated Mount St. Mary 46-36 despite shooting just 20 (10 of 50) percent from the floor.

“There’s six games that are going to determine whether we go to the state tournament, and in those six games we’re 1-0,” Bryant Head Coach Brad Matthews said. “That’s the biggest takeaway of the night.”

Bauxite Head Coach Cody Lambert said the team played great defensively against Malvern, the defending 4A state champs.

“Offensively, we hit a couple of threes and got the ball where it needed to go,” Lambert said. “We played good.”

Hornets win Central opener

January 14, 2015

GREENWOOD – The Bryant Hornets rebounded from an ugly first quarter in which they gave up three 3-pointers in the same spot to defeat Greenwood 48-35 in their 7A Central Conference opener.

“Early in the game, we were playing full-court man and they were beating us off the dribble,” Bryant Head Coach Mike Abrahamson said. “They made three threes in the corner and that hurt us.

“But we got better as the game went on and it led to us pulling away.”

Panthers handle Hornets

January 8, 2015

BENTON – After beating the Bryant Hornets 55-45 in the first game of the season, the Benton Panthers made it a clean sweep with a 54-48 win over the Hornets in the Saline County Shootout on Tuesday night in Benton Arena.

“That was our 13th game,” Benton Coach Dexter Hendrix said. “Being a young, inexperienced team like we are and that’s only our second home game. I think we’re still learning the importance of how to protect our home court. I didn’t think we did that in the first half. They outplayed us and were real physical and it took us a while to respond.
