Zebras get some resounding payback on Hornets


PINE BLUFF — The Pine Bluff Zebras had a point to make Thursday night and they hammered it home convincingly.

On Jan. 14, the Bryant Hornets stunned the Z’s, 42-41. Pine Bluff trailed most of the game and used pressure defense to rally in the fourth quarter. With three shots to win it in the final seconds, they couldn’t get it done. The victory started a six-game winning streak for Bryant, a streak that included two more one-point wins.

When the Hornets made their visit to McFadden Arena on Thursday, the Zebras stampeded to a 71-51 victory, snapping a tie between the teams for second place in the South Conference.
