Small school state tournament finals

CLASS A BOYS — Junior Ty Lazenby scored 37 points to lead Glencoe past Kiowa 57-39 in the Class A state championship game Saturday at State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City.

It’s the second straight title and the third overall for Glencoe (29-0), which won in Class B in 2006.

Lazenby finished the tournament with 103 points in three games, matching the 10th-best total ever. It was only the 15th time that a boy reached triple-digit scoring during a state tournament.

Glencoe led 25-21 at halftime. Kiowa (27-5) was within 32-30 after a basket by Brice Smith with 3:15 left in the third quarter, but Lazenby scored 15 points during an 18-2 run that put the Panthers up 50-32 with 4:30 remaining.

Smith led Kiowa with 13 points and seven rebounds.

CLASS B BOYS — Jace Kerr had 23 points, nine rebounds and five assists, Trevin Lopez added 20 points and Forgan won its third state basketball title in four years, beating Lookeba-Sickles 77-69 on Saturday in the Class B boys championship game.

No. 1 Forgan, located in the eastern Oklahoma Panhandle, also won titles in 2011 and 2012. The Bulldogs led most of the way against No. 3 Lookeba-Sickles (26-5), but couldn’t shake the Panthers, never leading by more than 13 points.

Lookeba-Sickles led 17-15 early in the second quarter, but Forgan (29-1) used a 15-4 run to go up 30-21 and led 41-33 at halftime after a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Lopez.

The Panthers closed within 41-37 early in the second half before Forgan rebuilt its lead. Forgan went 10-of-16 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter to seal the win. Bryson Lierie and Connor Karpe each scored 22 points for Lookeba-Sickles.

CLASS A GIRLS — Sophomore Tiarra Davis hit the tiebreaking free throws with 38.9 seconds left and Pond Creek-Hunter won its first Girls’ Class A basketball title on Saturday, beating Seiling 32-30.

No. 3 Pond Creek-Hunter (28-1) led most of the way and was up 29-23 entering the fourth quarter. The Panthers ran the four-corners offense most of the quarter and held on for the win.

No. 7 Seiling (23-6) pulled even at 30-30 on a basket by Kylie Templin with 1:04 left. Pond Creek-Hunter looked to hold the ball again before Davis was fouled and made both free throws.

The Wildcats had a chance to tie, but Kaci Livingston missed an 8-foot runner in traffic and Rylie Halcomb rebounded for Pond Creek-Hunter with nine-tenths of a second left. Halcomb led the Panthers with 13 points while Davis had nine points and seven rebounds. Morgan Marks led Seiling with 10 points.

CLASS B GIRLS — Morgan Vogt scored 23 points and Madi Grellner added 19 to help Okarche beat Red Oak 66-41 in the Class B girls state championship game.

No. 1 Okarche (29-2) won the Class A title last season before dropping to Class B and claiming its fifth state championship. The Warriors made 9 of 19 3-pointers at the State Fairgrounds on Saturday.

No. 2 Red Oak (25-2) led 9-4 in the first quarter, but the Warriors turned up their defensive intensity and used a 19-4 run to take a 23-13 lead, then scored the final 12 points of the first half, the final three on a buzzer-beater by Grellner, to take a 35-16 lead at the break.

Red Oak came no closer than 15 points after that. Rainey Mauzey scored 14 points, Brittany Ward had 12 and Baylee Evans added 11 for the Eagles.
