The Siloam Springs girls basketball team couldn't hold on to a 10-point fourth quarter lead as Camdenton, Mo., rallied for a 72-69 victory in the fifth-place game of the First National Bank of NWA Great 8 Classic held at W.E. King Arena at Rogers High School.
The entire tournament was played with a shot clock, something not implemented yet in Arkansas high school basketball, and it played a factor down the stretch as the Lady Panthers were not able to run off clock late in the game.
