Stillwater girls roll, boys fall in regular season finale at Lawton

LAWTON, Okla. — The Lady Pioneers gained much needed momentum as it enters regionals on a winning streak after a 61-43 victory over the Lady Wolverines Saturday.

“We are shooting the ball really well,” coach Carl Treat said. “It’s really good. We picked up a lot of momentum with the win last night and the one today.”

Stillwater led 12-10 after the first and pushed its lead to 27-23 at halftime. The Lady Pioneers broke the game open in the fourth, outscoring the Lady Wolverines 25-12.

“We hit four 3-pointers in a minute and a half time span,” Treat said. “We got some easy transition buckets off of turnovers.”

Austyn Iven led all scorers with 22. Callie Atkins followed with 12. Stillwater faces Tulsa Union in the regional semifinals in Bixby at 8 p.m. Thursday.

Boys

Lawton boys 67, Stillwater 65

LAWTON — A last-second 3-pointer turned what was supposed to be a weekend of preparation for regionals for the Stillwater High School boys basketball team into a weekend full of heartbreak as the Pioneers fell to Lawton 67-65 Saturday.

“We have to get ready to play,” Stillwater coach Michael Davis said. “That means everybody — coaches, players, everybody. We weren’t ready to play in this game.”

Rico Thompson scored 25 points and Carson Teel added 19, but the Pioneers (16-6) never overcame a slow start, falling behind 17-12 after one quarter.

“Our mind just wasn’t in it,” Davis said. “Both of these games this weekend were games that could have gone either way. They didn’t go our way and we have to get better. Now is the time where it really counts.”

The Pioneers will open the playoffs with a regional game against Tulsa’s Nathan Hale Friday at 8 p.m. in the Pioneer Fieldhouse.

Coyle 75, Asher 31

BEGGS — Coyle beat Asher 75-31 after jumping out to a 17 point lead in the first quarter.

The Bluejackets (22-4) were led offensively by Jakobi Brown with 26 points. Tony Aska followed with 18. Coyle scored double-digits in all four quarters and held Asher to low-scoring.

Coyle will play at 8 p.m. Friday against either Burlington or Deer Creek Lamar in the area tournament.

Glencoe 85, Strother 66

KELLYVILLE — The Glencoe boys utilized a big fourth quarter to pull away for a 85-66 victory over Strother Saturday in the championship of the regional tournament in Kellyville.

With the game tied at 56 heading into the final quarter, the Panthers busted through Strother's full court press and held a 29-10 scoring advantage to advance to the championship game of the Class A Area III finals.

"We made some mental mistakes in the first half and didn't shoot the perimeter shots well," Glencoe coach John Lazenby said. "In the second half we did a better job attacking the basket and led to several easy bumps off the glass."

Ty Lazenby led the Panthers with 30 points, along with six assists — five of which came in the decisive fourth quarter. Brother Jake Lazenby went off for 27 points, while Hunter Hall chipped in with 13.

Kagen Castlebury, who has 9 points, and Ty Lazenby hauled in 9 rebounds each for the Panthers.

Glencoe will take on Velma-Alma in the championship game of the area tournament at 8 p.m. Friday in Stroud. The winner earns an automatic bid to the state tournament, while the loser must battle back through the area consolation bracket.
