Senior Night scare survived

No. 2 Lady Roughers storm back from icy start to wallop Owasso

(Continued)

Boys:

Owasso 65,

Muskogee 46


The Owasso Rams, No. 3 in the Class 6A boys poll, opened the game with the first nine points and never looked back in defeating Muskogee on Tuesday.

The Roughers (8-11, 4-6 Frontier Conference) did trim the opening deficit to 12-7 but watched as Owasso (15-3, 10-2) ended the first quarter with a 9-3 run to grab a 21-10 advantage.

By the time the two teams went to the locker room at intermission, the Rams had increased their lead to 35-18.

“Owasso played good,” said MHS coach Josh Berry. “We didn’t come out ready to play and that’s the bottom line.”

The second half was not much better as Owasso outscored the Roughers 22-11 to remove all doubt, taking a 57-29 lead into the fourth quarter.

Two Roughers finished the game in double figures with Tramal Ivy scoring 15 points while Anthony King had 10 points. Shane Milton led the Rams with 20 points and Jaylen Lowe had 17 points.

Owasso had two players crack the double-figure plateau with Shake Milton scoring 20 points and Jaylen Lowe adding 17 points.

“We need to get better for tomorrow,” Berry said. “We need to work and get better for Friday.”

Dexter McGriff  and Lui Lee, all seniors who have seen light action this season, played their final game at MHS.
