Glencoe squads roll in home tournament openers

STILLWATER, Okla. — Glencoe boys coach John Lazenby was a little concerned entering Thursday’s tournament opener against Woodland as four of his players including leading scorer Ty Lazenby had to sit out for leaving the bench during a scuffle in last Friday’s game against Shidler.

“We out man Woodland pretty good,” Lazenby said. “When you have two starters out and four of your top eight, you got a little bit concern.”

The top-ranked Panthers gave their coach nothing to worry about as they rode an early lead to an 85-29 rout in the first round.

“They took the concern away pretty quick because we jumped on them pretty quick,” Lazenby said.

Joining Lazenby on the bench was starting post Andrew Kuhn and reserves Claytin Beaver and Dylan Billingslea. That didn’t slow down Glencoe (16-0) as it jumped out to a 19-2 lead — thanks to the shooting of J.K. Hadlock — who scored nine points in the first quarter. Hadlock’s hot shooting continued in the second quarter as he hit three 3-pointers to finish the first half with 20 points and scored 24 in the game.

“I was proud of J.K., he shot the ball well,” coach Lazenby said. “Sean (Smith) attacked the bucket well. I told the guys ‘we are a little shorthanded tonight and some other guys need to step up.’”

The Panthers led 46-17 at halftime and outscored the Cougars 20-5 in the third quarter to hold a 66-22 advantage. Jake Lazenby also was shooting the ball well, scoring 21 points. Sean Smith scored nine points and Lyle Smith, who started in place of Kuhn scored eight points.

“He did a great job of covering the post, fronting the post and making them through it over the top,” Lazenby said. “To have a couple of freshmen get that playing time, I thought they responded well.”

Lane Driskill received extended minutes and scored seven points off the bench and distributed the ball to open teammates.

Glencoe faces the winner of Southwest Covenant and Newkirk at 8:20 p.m. Friday.
