The 34-32 victory over Arkansas Baptist advanced them to the semifinals of the Panther Pride Classic at the Anthony School. They’ll take on Rose City Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 4:30 p.m.

Jake Scoggins and Cameron Murray each scored 10 points for the Hornets. Demaja Price added 5.

“There were some things we did well tonight, and some things that we are going to have to work on,” commented Hornets coach Heath Long. “We needed to do a better job of getting the ball inside in the first half, and we didn’t handle their pressure very well either. However, we managed to correct both of those to a certain degree in the second half, kept battling while we were down, and gave ourselves a chance to win.”Cameron Murray posts up an Arkansas Baptist player.
