Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - SPORTS - From JBU Sports In­for­ma­tion

The Siloam Springs girls bas­ket­ball team couldn’t hold on to a 10-point fourth quar­ter lead as Cam­den­ton, Mo., ral­lied for a 7269 vic­tory in the fifth-place game of the First Na­tional Bank of NWA Great 8 Clas­sic held at W.E. King Arena at Rogers High School.

The en­tire tour­na­ment was played with a shot clock, some­thing not im­ple­mented yet in Arkansas high school bas­ket­ball, and it played a fac­tor down the stretch as the Lady Pan­thers were not able to run off clock late in the game.

Siloam Springs led 65-55 with less than five min­utes re­main­ing, but Cam­den­ton outscored the Lady Pan­thers 17-4 down the stretch.

Cam­den­ton led 19-14 af­ter the

first quar­ter and 35-34 at half­time, only for Siloam Springs to take a 54-51 lead go­ing into the fourth quar­ter.

Emery Brown led the Lady Pan­thers (2-3) with a ca­reer-high 21 points, while Jael Har­ried had 17. Sydney Moor­man added 11 points, Chloe Price 10, Brooke Henderson six and Mia Hevener and Brook­lyn Shreve each with two.

Siloam Springs was sched­uled to play Fort

Gib­son, Okla., on Tues­day in the open­ing round of the Jerry Oquin In­vi­ta­tional held in Inola, Okla. Re­sults were not avail­able at presstime.

The Lady Pan­thers will be back in ac­tion ei­ther on Thurs­day night or Fri­day night pend­ing the re­sults of Tues­day’s game.
