SEQUOYAH 71, TULSA WEBSTER 55 – Sequoyah gave up 32 points to Tulsa Webster’s Kortney Smith, but it didn’t hurt in the long run.
The Indians countered three players in double figures to beat the Warriors 71-55 at the Civic Center.
“We knew coming in that he was a really good player and we came up with a game plan that if he gave it up in our press, we tried to deny him getting the ball back and that worked some,” coach Jay Herrin said. “They might have won the individual scoring award, but we won the war.’
Ryan Helsley led the Indians (6-3) with a team-high 16 points and eight rebounds. Tyler Jones had 14 nd Caisen Green added 10.
Nobody else on the Webster scored more than nine points.
