Timberwolves relentless in win over Huskies

(Continued)

NORMAN —

By the half, North led 32-14 and, with about 3 minutes remaining in the third quarter, when Blough went away from the eight- or nine-player rotation he tends to employ, the Timberwolves had pushed their edge all the way to 58-20.

The Huskies, who fell to a season-ending 5-18 with the loss, picked up 10 point from Kendall Burge and nine and seven rebounds from Sloan Hendley. 

Edmond North’s biggest run, as long as Blough played his regular rotation, was 3-0 late in the second quarter. In addition to the 15-3 second-quarter run North put together, the T-Wolves added an 18-4 run in the third.

“I loved our ball movement, our transition was great,” Blough said. “I thought our defense was good for the most part.”

Woodard liked the way her team didn’t simply survive on elimination Thursday, but thrived, pretty much from the opening tip.

“I think it prepares us for the rest of our games,” she said. “You don’t want to come out and have a slow win.”

It clearly wasn’t that.

 

Lawton Eisenhower girls 54, Mustang 48: The two-headed monster of Crystal Polk and Nikki Smith were too much for Mustang to handle Thursday night at the North Gym, where they led the Eagles past Mustang on the opening night of the Class 6A playoffs.

The two combined for 34 points and managed to keep Ike slightly in front of the Broncos throughout. 

The Eagles led 19-11 after a quarter, 29-27 at the half and 43-37 after three quarters.

Addy Lawson led Mustang with 15 points. Brook Irwin added 10.
