Moore steamrolls Lawton

Lady SaberCats come back to beat Yellowjackets


MOORE — Girls — Southmoore 44, Choctaw 40: After trailing for much of the night, the SaberCats grabbed a 38-35 lead with three minutes left in the contest. They then tried to stall the ball by having Kayla Tucker just dribble at the top of the key. They wound up turning the ball over, and Choctaw came down and got two free throws to cut deficit to one.

Cyndi Williams hit a pair of free throws with 1:14 left and the ’Cats led 40-37. Kyeria Hannah came up with a steal and the Yellow Jackets were forced to foul Tucker. She drained both free throws.

However, Sadie Marino came down and drained a trey from the top of the key with 18 seconds on the clock to cut lead down to 42-40. But Tucker was fouled and once again hit both free throws to put the game away.

Sydney Wyatt paced Choctaw with 11 points. Kiyra Baird and Addie Vernon each had 10.

Serithia Hawkins led all scorers with 13. Tucker added 10, including going 6 for 6 from the charity stripe in the fourth quarter.

No. 4 Southmoore will face off with No. 6 Muskogee in JNIT championship at 7 p.m.

“We need to work as hard as we did the last three minutes against Choctaw,” Tucker said. “We just really need to be able to put the ball in the basket. As long as we work hard and keep them from scoring, I think we will be fine.”

Muskogee 73, Eisenhower 52

The Eagles stayed close in the first quarter as Crystal Polk and Nikki Smith were able to control the backboards and put back offensive rebounds.

But the Roughers Alexus Wilson and Kelsey McClure took the game in the second quarter. Their pressure defense against the smaller EHS guards turned into transition points.

McClure had a game high 25 points and Wilson added 17. Smith led the Eagles with 21.
