Bryant White edges Benton for third at NLR tourney

NORTH LITTLE ROCK — The Bryant White Hornets eighth grade team of Bryant Middle School finished third at the North Little Rock Invitational Tournament by eking out a 26-25 win over the rival Benton Panthers on Thursday night.

“The game came down to the last seconds,” said Hornets coach Vincent Newton. “The fourth quarter had five lead changes but the kids were able to pull it out which was a great win for us after losing to Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter Wednesday.

“Arlon Jenkins II had an enormous presence in the game,” he added. “He was 4 of 4 from the free throw line in the last minute of the game and led the team in scoring with 10 points. Catrell Wallace and O.J. Newborn were intricate as well with their rebounding to help the team to a win.”

Bryant White returns to action at North Little Rock on Thursday, Dec. 3.
