Surges to start both halves key romp for Bryant


Bryant Hornets freshman basketball coach Tyler Posey called one timeout Monday night. It came early in the second quarter. His team had built a 13-3 lead by the end of the opening period but the Malvern Leopard Cubs had hit a pair of layups on either side of Christian McIntosh’s 12-foot jumper, trimming the Bryant lead to 15-7.

Posey wanted better defense from his troops and he got it. Though they hit a few free throws along the way, the Cubs wouldn’t manage another field goal until the final 30 seconds of the half then just one more in the third quarter and one final basket in the fourth quarter.

The Hornets led 26-14 at the half then by as much as 25 in the second on the way to a 46-22 win.
