“I have to give credit to Conway Blue,” said Bryant White coach Heath Long. “We got up early but they didn’t give up and fourth their way back into the game. It would have been easy for us to panic but our guys did a good job of staying in the game.
“I also liked the fact that we were being aggressive to the basket and drawing fouls,” he added.
The Hornets were set travel to Bethel Middle School in Bryant tonight to take on Bryant Blue.
