BRYANT – The Bryant bas­ket­ball teams picked up a pair of 6A Cen­tral home vic­to­ries Tues­day.

The Lady Hor­nets and Mount Saint Mary Belles went back-and-forth the en­tire game. But Bryant did enough in the fourth to earn a 49-45 win.

As for the night­cap, it wasn’t near as com­pet­i­tive.

The Bryant Hor­nets never trailed in their

67-45 win over Lit­tle Rock Catholic.

Bryant is now 9-6 over­all and 1-1 in league play.

Mean­while, the Lady Hor­nets used a bal­anced of­fen­sive ef­fort in the fourth quar­ter to ease away from the Belles for hard-earned vic­tory.

At the start of the fourth, the score was tied at 31.

Bryant (9-5, 1-1) took the lead for good when Tierra Trot­ter made a 3-pointer to put her team up 38-35. Later in the quar­ter, Lady Hor­net for­ward Mcken­zie Muse also drained a shot from be­yond the arc to make the score 41-37.

Slowly, Mount Saint

Mary (6-9, 0-2) fell fur­ther be­hind as it strug­gled to find ways to score. With just over 20 sec­onds left, Bryant’s Ivory Russ made a pair of free throws to put the Lady Hor­nets up 49-39. The Belles would score a few points in the clos­ing sec­onds, but the 10-point fourth-quar­ter deficit was too much to over­come.

Trot­ter was the game­high scorer with 18 while In­dia Atkins had 11, and Muse fin­ished with eight.

For the Belles, 6-foot cen­ter, Cather­ine Althoff led the way with 17.

In the boys con­test, Bryant had a good time against Catholic as ev­ery player on the Hor­net ros­ter got a chance to play en route to a 22-point win.

The Hor­nets held a dou­ble-digit lead at the in­ter­mis­sion.

Bryant used a nice ef­fort de­fen­sively to hold the Rock­ets in check. Qual­ity looks at the bucket were

few and far be­tween for Catholic.
