BIXBY, Okla. — A year ago, the Stillwater High School boys basketball team beat Springdale, Ark., to win the Bixby Tournament.

Saturday, Springdale got its revenge with a 64-50 win over the Pioneers in the third-place game.

“They were the better team, not much to it,” Stillwater coach Michael Davis said.

Rico Thompson led the Pioneers (3-2) with 17 points, while Carson Teel tacked on 12 points. Jared Dickey also scored 7 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in the loss.

“We didn’t shoot well,” Davis said. “We were 2 of 11 from 3 and 4 of 11 from the free-throw line. ... We’re young and we’re still trying to work out some things on defense, as well.”

The Pioneers will face Lawton Eisenhower Friday.
