Bryant White boys win opener in tourney at Cabot (corrected)

CABOT — Outscoring the CAC Mustangs 14-1 in the second quarter, the Bryant White Hornets eighth grade basketball team of Bryant Middle School surged to a 35-20 victory on Tuesday in the first round of the Cabot North Tournament.

Jordan Jones led the way with 11 points and six rebounds. Greyson Giles added 7 points and Hunter Holder 6.[more]

The Hornets trailed 7-6 after a quarter but took control in the second period, leading 20-8 at the half. It was 26-14 going into the third quarter.

“I was proud of the defensive effort,” said Hornets coach Heath Long. “We held them to six made baskets for the game. Any time we do that, we will have a chance to win.

“We also had six different kids with at least one assist, which means that we are also playing unselfishly on the offensive end,” added the coach.

The Hornets were scheduled to play in the tourney championship game on Saturday at 1:45 p.m. against either Sheridan or Cabot North.
