Size matters:NHS muscles past Shawnee

(Continued)

DURANT —

And from there, they did exactly what they needed to do to close out the game. They went to a spread offense and kept the ball moving to burn clock, forcing Shawnee to begin fouling with more than four minutes left in the game. And the Tigers sealed it at the line, with Harper hitting six straight free throws to extend the lead and Cooper Clark hitting three more in the game’s final minute to ice the victory.

Next up for NHS is a title tilt against Westmoore at 8:30 p.m. tonight.

“They’re a good team,” Thornton said of the Jaguars. “We’ve got to play better than we did against Shawnee. We have to get back and transition and keep the ball in front of us to stop their penetration.”

The Timberwolves bounced back from a one-point loss to Putnam City North on Thursday with a big win over Hugo in the second round of the Durant Lions Classic.

It wasn’t a pretty game, but coach Jeff Blough said he was pleased with the way his team took care of its business.

“It was pretty sloppy today, but part of that was what Hugo did switching in and out of defenses,” he said. “They tried to make it ugly and it worked, but we got the win.”

Bri Kuestersteffen led North with 17 points, five assists and three steals. Haley Woodard added 11 points and seven boards. The T-Wolves will meet Fayetteville, Ark. In the consolation finals at noon today.
