Fimple and success have gone hand in hand during his tenure.


“That was out 11 trip to the semifinals in 13 seasons,” he said and then added, when asked how long he had been at North Little Rock, “thirteen seasons.”


De’Myla Brown led all scorers with 23 points, while senior forward Yo’Myris Morris added 15 points and pulled down 20 rebounds. Amber Hawkison was also in double figures with 12 points.
