Jaguars tourney run full of close calls

MOORE — It had been a long time since Westmoore went into its own tournament believing it had a chance to win it all. But that was the case last weekend when they hosted the Lady Jags Classic.

COming off a tough loss to Southmoore, the Jaguars were confident heading into the tourney. However, turnovers, foul shooting and inconsistent play prevented them from playing at the level they had hoped and they finished with a 1-2 record over the three days.

“We were more inconsistent than we had been prior to the tournament,” Westmoore coach ANdrea Guziec. “We will regroup...”

Westmoore 44, Eisenhower 43: The Jaguars was looking to come out strong in the first round of Thursday. But that is not what happened as it took four quarters to hold off the Eagles.

“We were not ready today,” Guziec said. “I don’t know if we’re still feeling the hangover from Tuesday night or what.”

Westmoore shot themselves in the foot over and over again in the first half by missing layups and turning the ball over. Eisenhower rode the back of Crystal Polk, who controlled the paint. Polk is being looked at by schools such as Oklahoma State, Arizona and Baylor.

The Eagles led 19-16 at halftime.

It didn’t get much better in the second half for the Jaguars, but they did settle down and play stronger defense.

The score was tied 35-35 with 5:16 left in the game. The Jags outscored the Eagles 9-8 the rest of the way.

“We threw out our halfcourt pressure a little bit and I really think that created some offense for us and got us going,” Guziec said. “It wasn’t our best half, but I was proud of the girls that even though we weren’t playing our best we found a way to win the game.”
