MOORE — Southmoore 69, Flower Mound 59: Brandon Mosby had the task of slowing down the Rebels’ Devontee Patterson. After a subpar game Friday, Patterson, the son of former NBA star Michael Finley, came with more energy Saturday.

The SaberCats led 62-54 with 2:05 left in the fourth. The Rebels’ Keenan Holdman was fouled and knocked down two free throw attempts. But the SaberCats broke Flower Mound’s full court press, and Brandon Mosby scored an easy layup.

The ’Cats got another defensive stop and the Pride fouled Justin Bean, who made 1 of 2.

The Rebels could never get any closer as the SaberCats continued to make free throws to close out the contest.

Bean scored 25 points to lead the ’Cats’ charge. Chelvin Webb added 15 points and Preston Smith chipped in with 12.

Ponca City 50, Moore 41: With 3:52 left in the fourth quarter, Amanda Patterson knocked down a jumper to close Ponca City’s gap to 41-36. The Cats scored three straight before the Lions’ Breanna Jones and Allison Rogers closed the score to 44-39.

With 1:30 left, Moore trailed 46-40. Cheyenne Hull was fouled and drained both free throws. Patterson was fouled and made 1 of 2.

The Lions forced a turnover but Patterson missed a floated form baseline.

Ponca City knocked down enough free throws down the stretch to close the game out. The Cats Ponca City played without starting senior guard Brianne Cherry, who was on the bench in street clothes.

Hall led all scorers with 27 points. That included knocking down seven 3-pointers.

Patterson scored 16 points for the Lions. Ashlie Rose and Allison Rogers each chipped in with 7.
