The best basketball team at Blackwell in terms of number of wins faced off with Hermleigh’s two-time defending Region II-1A champs at Abilene Christian University in a great Friday semifinal, at least for the first half. And Blackwell had a 19-18 lead in the third quarter. But at crunch time the Lady Hornets were not quite up to the challenge
Blackwell — within five of Hermleigh with 4:47 left — did not score again as the Lady Hornets’ season ended with a 43-27 loss.
