Stillwater High girls basketball falls by five in Bixby opener

BIXBY, Okla. — The Stillwater High girls basketball team couldn’t overcome a poor shooting performance in the first round of the Bixby Tournament and fell to Claremore 40-35.

“Our shots just wouldn’t fall today,” SHS coach Carl Treat said. “It came down to shooting percentages and we shot 28 percent from the field and 57 percent from the line.”

The Lady Pioneers got to the line plenty of times, too, but couldn’t capitalize on the freebies. Stillwater made just 12 of 21 free throws in the ball game. SHS also made just one of 13 attempts from 3-point range.

Stillwater High was led in scoring by senior point guard Austyn Iven, who had a game-high 13 points, along with Jeni Scarbrough, who chipped in with 8 points. However, it was the loss of guard Blake Bulard to a season-ending knee injury that hinder the SHS offense.

“We’re still adjusting to Blake being out for the year with a knee injury,” Treat said. “We just couldn’t make the shots we needed to make and didn’t take care of the ball at critical times. ... We just couldn’t get the easy shots we needed at times.”

Stillwater also couldn’t quite slow the Claremore offense. While the Lady Zebras didn’t have an individual scorer crack double digits, they did have six players finish with four or more points.

Stillwater will face Coweta in the consolation bracket at 1 p.m. Friday.
