“We played a very good defensive game,” said Bryant White coach Ben Perry. “The girls came out of the locker room fired up.

“We were able to get valuable playing time for the team,” he added. “I was happy with how we successfully ran our inbounds plays and ran some good motion offense. I was also proud with how we stayed with our man on defense.

“We still have some fundamental skills to work on but overall I was pleased,” Perry said. “We shot 50 percent from the line as well.”

Bryant White will play next at Benton on Tuesday, Nov. 27. Bryant Blue travels to White Hall on that date.
