SaberCats fall to Wolves

Lions can't keep up with No. Patriots


EDMOND — No. 1 Putnam City West boys 93, No. 16 Moore 66: The Patriots jumped to a big first-half lead on the foul plagued Lions using their full-court defense to cause multiple turnovers.

Moore was able to make a run in the third quarter and closed to within 48-40 behind Brayden Powell and Jaylin Wilson.

However, Powell picked up back-to-back fouls and had to go to the bench with his fourth overall. Wilson tried to keep the team in it as he scored at will over PCW’s Omega Harris.

But it was enough to overcome a full blitz by Putnam City West in the fourth quarter, who left their starters in the game until 18 seconds left.

Moore coach Aaron Howell had a problem with the officiating throughout the night and was called for a technical foul  after Powell picked up his fifth and fouled out. That ended any chance of a comeback.

Moore advances to play Norman High on Friday in the area tournament in a win-or-go-home game.

Choctaw girls 55, Westmoore 36: Loss drops the Lady Jaguars to the consolation round in the area tourney. They will face Putnam City on Thursday.
