Bryant High teams return to action in tournaments Thursday

The Bryant High School varsity basketball teams begin post-Thanksgiving play on Thursday, Dec. 2, at separate tournaments.

The Hornets travel to[more] the 2010 Searcy Bank Classic while the Lady Hornets trek to Bentonville for the annual Crabtree Invitational Girls Tournament.

The Hornets pick up where they left off before the holiday with a rematch against the rival Benton Panthers at 5:30 p.m. The Classic format is a round robin so the Hornets will return on Friday to take on Searcy at 7 p.m., then Saturday to take on Wynne at 4:30 p.m.

The team with the best record will win the Classic championship with tiebreakers set up in case of ties including head-to-head and margin of victory (10 point maximum).

The Lady Hornets begin play in Bentonville at 6 p.m., in the East Auxiliary gym against Branson, Mo. On Friday, they’ll be pitted against either Bentonville or Duchesne, Mo. If they win on Thursday, they’ll play at 7 p.m. An opening loss would put them in the 4 p.m. game with both being played in the main gym at Bentonville High School.

The tournament, which also includes Huntsville, Hot Springs Lakeside, Rogers Heritage and Sheridan, concludes on Saturday.
