Lions roll past Lawton into tourney final

Lady SaberCats come back to beat Yellowjackets

(Continued)

MOORE —

But Gigger also found ways to help his team offensively with putbacks and strong moves into the paint. That included catching a two-handed alley-oop in the third quarter from Toles that brought the entire MHS bench to its feet.

“It was pretty cool. Me and Derek work on it a lot,” Gigger said. “It just excites the crowd and gets us going even more on defense.”

Moore took a 71-50 advantage into the fourth quarter.

Lawton’s Tevin Foster scored 21 in the losing cause. He was the one bright spot for LHS.

The Lions had four score in double figures. Gigger led the way with 19 points and Davenport added 18.

“It’’s a good feeling to see everybody going,” Toles said. “It doesn’t matter who it is.”

 

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.
