Housewarming party: Finally on home court, Fort Gibson throttles Jay



Fort Gibson 83, Jay 32

Hannah Cantrell isn’t a bad swimmer, and  she’s turning into a good basketball player.

Her game-high 13 points helped the 4A No. 2 Lady Tigers (9-0, 5-0) dump the team they beat in last year’s regional finals.

Cantrell. a member of the Lady Tigers’ state champion swimming team, is a little hesitant to brag about her offensive skills.

“I don’t know what I bring to this team,” he said. “I usually score two or four points per game. It felt pretty good scoring. It was definitely different as I’m more defensive-oriented.”

Coach Jerry Walker said he’s been talking to Cantrell about shooting and scoring more.

“She could be the missing link to making us a complete team,” he said. “We’ve always known she could play defense, but I’ve always felt like she could shoot it.  She just has to believe she can shoot it.

“Her doing that makes us a more lethal team. Her jump shot is as good as any we’ve had.”

Cantrell was one of four Lady Tigers in double figures. The others were Brooke Palmer (12), Jayme Hill (11) and Taylor London (10).

Fort Gibson jumped out to an 8-0 lead on the way to a 20-6 lead after one quarter and 41-21 halftime lead against the Lady Bulldogs (1-9, 0-5).

Adrianna Cornell led the Lady Bulldogs with nine.
