Howard's hot hand nets Bullard a win over PT

BULLARD — Corbin Howard led a balanced Bullard scoring attack by canning 17 points as Bullard outlasted Pine Tree, 53-44, Tuesday night at Panther Gymnasium.

Hunter Landrum and Scott Lowrie so went off for double-digits. Landrum finished with 14 points while Lowrie added 12.

After battling it out bucket-for-bucket, Bullard took as 23-21 lead into the intermission as Landen Beckham hit a baseline jumper as the clock rang out to end the first half.

Bullard’s post player, Scott Lowrie (12 points, seven rebounds), and swingman, Hunter Landrum (14 points, ten rebounds, three assists, two steals), controlled the paint

throughout the game while Howard (17 pints, 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block), put up two field goals in the first, second and fourth periods as Bullard pulled away to a 48-37, cushion a Howard sunk 5-of-6 free throw attempts in the final period.

“Our defense after halftime really stepped up and made some things happen for us tonight,” said second-year Panthers head coach, Shane Chambless. “I think we did a good job of mixing up the zone and that really helped out to keep our guys out of foul trouble”.

About the two big men inside, Lowrie and Landrum, the former Whitehouse star Chambless bragged on the inside duo.

“I think Hunter played his best game of the year thus far,” added Chambless, “and I don’t know if he was in his comfort zone or what but he played with a lot of confidence which is always good to see.

“Scott (Lowrie) had a great second half and made a big push and his presence know in the second half especially.”

Pine Tree’s, Caleb Chumley led all scorers in the game with 20-point, 12 scored in the final two periods to try and stay close. Victor Hawkins was in double-figures for the Pirates (1-3) with 11-points on the night.

    One would probably be hard pressed to find any summer youth sports camp with a more streamlined approach than was found at the Jacksonville Fightin' Maiden Basketball camp, which took place this week at the Jacksonville High School Gymnasium.

    “We just asked the young ladies for two things,” Tony Harris, Jacksonville High School head girl's basketball coach, stated on Wednesday. “First, we wanted them to have fun and secondly we wanted them to learn control — to be able to control their eyes, their body and the (opposing) defender.”
