Panthers gelling

January 23, 2014

TEXARKANA – The Benton Panthers picked up an important road victory on Tuesday night upending the Arkansas High Razorbacks 58-42 in Texarkana.
“I’m very pleased our guards are coming along,” Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. “In over 25 years, I’ve never coached a team that has this low turnovers as this group has. We’re only averaging five to six turnovers a game and that’s remarkable.”
Benton (12-5, 3-1 South) would lead 12-9 after the first quarter before expanding their lead to 30-17 over the Razorbacks at halftime.
