Hot Springs Overtakes Har-Ber in Overtime


Hot Springs has the look of a State 5A Champion! The Trojans rallied back from a seven point half time deficit to defeat Har-Ber in the nightcap of the season opener. It was the 3rd quarter that did Har-Ber in when the Trojans out scored the Wildcats 20-12 and Har-Ber went 10 for 17 from the charity line. Every miss was a key miss. The only returning starters from 2014 21/8 team are senior JP Brandon and junior Avery Benson. The duo combined for 21 points in the first half of 33 and finished with totals of 23 and 20. Benson went coast to coast with ten seconds left to put the game in overtime. Hot Springs got the fast break going and made 5 of 6 free throws to knock the Wildcats off 63-59. Wildcats have a roster full of young talent. It's going to be an exciting year! The Wildcats load up the bus to travel to Harrison, AR Thursday night playing in the Harrison High School Annual Benefit.
