(December 3, 2015) — Stephenville opened up tournament action in Glen Rose with its second straight win Thursday morning, this one coming in overtime.

The Honeybees (3-3) knocked down nine of 11 overtime free throws, lifting them to a 53-47 win over Burleson Centennial. The Bees shoot for a three-game win streak when they face West at 11 a.m., also Thursday.
