HOT SPRINGS — Bouncing back from a narrow defeat at North Little Rock — their first of the season — the Bryant White Hornets eighth grade team overwhelmed the Hot Springs Trojans, 42-24, Monday night.
Kellen Robinson scored 11 points had four assists and three steals to lead the Hornets, now 3-1. Grant Johnson added 7 points and three rebounds while T.J. Lindsey scored 8 points and hauled down seven boards.
“We got off to a slow start,” said Hornets coach Richard Wrightner. “The environment was indeed a basketball environment. The crowd was loud, the energy was up for both teams.
“Our guys settled down, though, and played. It was a tough road win and a good win coming from a tough loss at North Little Rock.”
Wrightner added, “We have not played a complete game yet this year where we have executed on all ends of the court. Tonight, we struggled from the free-throw line. However, we did play with intensity for four quarters.
“I’m proud of the way our guys were able to grind out a great win against a really good opponent,” he concluded.
