Blough looks to Mougell: Norman North center Julian Mougell returned to the court this year much improved from a year ago. The 6-3 junior has at times been dominant inside but has been relatively quiet for the past few weeks for North.
That’s something Blough hopes will change tonight when the T-Wolves meet seventh-ranked Edmond Memorial.
“Memorial isn’t as big inside as they have been in the last few years,” he said. “I really hope we can exploit that and get Julian going again.
Anderson keys struggling Tiger offense: With just two consistent scorers on the roster, points haven’t come easily for the NHS girls. Guard Taylor Ely and forward Bethany Cox are dangerous scorers, but both were being focused on by opposing defenses.
After a big game from Albany Anderson to close out last weekend, that could change when the Tigers take on Del City at 6:15 p.m. today.
Anderson broke out for 17 points and 15 rebounds in NHS’ 64-40 victory over Ardmore on Saturday. Her physical style and relentless rebounding will serve the Tigers well against the Eagles and their physical, up-tempo defense and, coach Nichole Copeland hopes, will take some of the pressure off of Cox and Ely.
